Getting Egg Donation Right

For you as a donor, for you as a recipient and for your future child.

We specialise in finding, matching and looking after altruistic egg donors with one-to-one, anonymous donation. We are proud of the outstanding success rates with Altrui donors, from working in partnership with the best clinicians in this country.

Our whole ethos at Altrui is not just to get egg donation right for our donors and recipients but, most importantly, for any child, or children, that may be born as a result. Whilst we are fully focused on helping our recipients to get pregnant, we also look longer term to consider what is best for any future children, which is why we have taken such care in planning the way Altrui works and what makes us so different.

Hundreds of people have realised their hopes of starting, or completing, a family through us.

Using our extensive knowledge and understanding of all aspects of egg donation and IVF, we guide egg donors and recipients through the process, offering a very personal and unique service.  Our aim is to make the journey simple, safe and rewarding for the kind women who come forward to donate some of their eggs.

Our dedicated team is committed to making the egg donation process the very best experience for everyone. Your care is paramount at every step of the way, reflecting the Altrui ethos.

Altrui have been very supportive. I am very happy to have been through the process of egg donation with a group of professionals who care so genuinely about both the donors and the couple seeking fertility treatment. It’s a very emotional time for both sides and Altrui fully understand this.

Phillipa - Egg Donor

It is six months since our wonderful baby was born and it has been a fabulous whirlwind of a time. We wanted to write to reiterate our thanks to you for everything: your patience (we have a sneaking feeling that we were not your easiest clients), your guidance, your support, your experience and, most of all, for finding us our donor.

Michele - Egg Recipient

My egg collection went very smoothly and, minus feeling a tad uncomfortable, I feel fine! Altrui have made me feel like a true super-hero. Thank you for being there 24/7 and of course this all goes to the hospital too! Even though my journey is now complete they have reassured me they will keep in contact. I have absolutely loved hearing that my couple are overwhelmed and cannot describe how grateful they are. Although it’s anonymous it feels like there are always personal touches. I can only hope that my eggs will now work their magic and I wish my recipients all the luck in the world.

Liz - Egg Donor

Both my husband and I have found working with Altrui a quick, stress free process. Alison and her husband were delightful and understanding. We cannot believe how quickly a donor was found, it has been a long emotional journey to get to Altrui and it was such a relief to find a calm, understanding environment and an easy ending to what has been a complicated road to finding a donor.

Sara - Egg Recipient

The procedure itself was really straightforward, very little discomfort on the day itself, swelling afterwards, but that is to be expected. The thing is, all these minor inconveniences pale into insignificance when you consider what you are actually doing: giving the gift of life and hope.

Does egg donation affect my contraception?

If you are thinking about being a donor, you may be asked to change your contraception at some point. These are the ones that are hormonally based – the Mirena coil, Implant or injection as they can give false readings on tests and interfere with the development of the eggs in the donation cycle. The […]
