Egg Donation

We offer our patients options to access high quality donor eggs through our donor programme here in the UK.

IVF treatment using egg donation can help women achieve pregnancy where it has been proving very difficult. IVF with donor eggs may be needed for a variety of reasons, whether it be age, ovarian failure or previous medical treatment that have directly affected your fertility.

What is egg donation?

In an IVF cycle with donor eggs, an egg is fertilised using either sperm from your partner or a sperm donor, creating an embryo to be transferred into your womb.

We have frozen donor eggs which are available immediately, so there is no longer a need to go through the stressful process of synchronising your menstrual cycle with a potential donor before your treatment can begin.

A patient’s view on egg donation

We feel incredibly lucky to have Noah in our lives. After a difficult journey of miscarriages and unsuccessful IVF treatment, Noah was conceived through egg donation. The most amazing gift of hope and life from a lovely donor. Mr Nardo’s thorough personal investigations identified an issue that other clinics had overlooked. And the care of the RHG team for both us and the lovely lady donating made our treatment feel special giving us the best possible chance and a beautiful baby boy. A huge thank you!

Who could benefit from an egg donation?

There are many different reasons why women may wish to consider undergoing egg donation, including issues such as:

  • Premature menopause
  • Ovarian failure
  • Lack of egg production
  • Poor quality egg production
  • Loss of ovaries due to previous surgery or treatment
  • Being at risk of passing on genetic conditions

A number of these factors can be age-related, therefore IVF treatment with donor eggs can often be the best option for women once they reach their 40s.

Our Easy Egg Donation Process

Donor eggs are available immediately. The time between choosing to undergo IVF with donor eggs and matching with a suitable egg donor of your choice can be as short as a couple of weeks.

Your medical history will be reviewed, and some health tests undertaken to see if the egg donation process is suitable. If it is, the consultant would then prepare the treatment protocol.

Patients can access our catalogue for the egg bank, where they can find out data of their donors and suggest preferences, with the ultimate match carefully selected by our coordinator.

The IVF process then takes place, whereby donor eggs are fertilised in the laboratory using your partner’s or donor’s sperm, before the embryo is transferred into the woman’s uterine cavity.

Success Rates

If you have been considering IVF with donor eggs, you’ll want to know your chosen clinic’s success rates. At Reproductive Health Group, we are incredibly proud of our consistently high results for all our IVF patients, whether they have received an egg donation or used their own.

We believe that this high success rate is due to our approach of culturing the great majority of embryos to blastocyst stage for transfer, and only freezing blastocysts for future use in frozen cycles.
