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.

Thank you Altrui for being a beacon of light in a rather long and lonely journey. It’s made an enormous difference to be treated like a human being not a number.

Helen - Egg recipient

This has been an amazing experience. Altrui have been fantastic and so helpful, they have gone above and beyond my expectations. The injections were not as bad as you would think and I found the procedure to be completely pain free. I would do it all over again in a heart beat!

Kay - Egg Donor

They made me feel like I was a special person and they cared for me for the whole of that period. Before and after each appointment at the clinic I received a call or text just to ask how did it go and how I felt. I would recommend everyone to donate with Altrui as they are wonderful. I am really grateful, thank you xxx

Anna - Egg Donor

I found being a donor a really rewarding experience and it was much easier than I had anticipated. Both the team at Altrui and at the unit were wonderful, caring and considerate, and were always available if I had any questions or for support. We soon got the hang of the meds and I luckily didn’t feel any effects from them. I found the procedure much quicker, easier and less painful than I had thought it might be. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Altrui.

Sarah - Egg Donor

We are incredibly grateful for your help with this, and all your support in general through the whole process. You have made what could have been a very difficult decision seem so positive and straightforward. Thank you again for everything.

Kate - Recipient

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 […]
