Background and purpose: Today Assisted Reproductive Techniques (ART) are widely applied in Islamic countries according to religious rules. This study aimed at investigating the attitudes of infertile women towards oocyte donation who referred to an infertility clinic in Sari. Materials and methods: Oocyte Donation Questionnaire was used to collect the data from infertile women attending Imam Khomeyni IVF Centre in 2012-2013. Results: There was a significant difference between the level of education and positive attitude in accepting oocyte donation. Among the participants 78.4% were willing to receive oocytes from anonymous donors and 22.3% said that they would tell the truth to the baby born via egg donation. There were 73.3% who found this technique contrary to Islamic beliefs. Conclusion: More attention is needed on social and economic issues affecting the attitudes of people towards oocyte donation. Significant correlation between the level of education and positive attitude towards oocyte donation calls for holding more educational classes and conferences and informing the public through mass media. These, could also increase the religious knowledge of people towards the benefits of this technique.
