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.

I thought of my recipient couple every day from being matched to completing the treatment, hoping I wasn’t letting them down and that all would go well for all of us. Luckily, it did! I was overwhelmed by the lovely gift my recipient couple gave to me, it was such a thoughtful and unexpected gesture and I am keeping absolutely everything crossed that they have a successful result.

Laura - Egg Donor

Being a donor through Altrui was the best decision I ever made, I was treated absolutely wonderfully by all the staff at Altrui, and I would wholly recommend that anyone thinking of becoming a donor should choose Altrui.

Caroline - Egg Donor

Many thanks for all of your help and support. I’m so glad that I chose a donor through Altrui. It’s been so lovely for me being able to hear that the donor is OK and being looked after and also hearing what a lovely person she is. I can’t tell you how much that means to me.

Rachael - Egg Recipient

Everything was explained fully and I knew exactly what was happening at all times. The clinic were so thorough and I was really looked after. During the injections, all staff at Altrui were available for any questions I had and advice about pre and post donation. The feeling that I may have helped a couple have a family is amazing. I will remember this forever.

Rena - Egg Donor

I cannot fault Altrui, they were there for me from beginning to end. They made the process so smooth and easy, and they made me feel like the most wonderful person in the world! Thank you Altrui, without you I couldn’t have done it.

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 […]
