Everything you need to know about finding an altruistic egg donor in the UK
Altrui is very small and very unique in that we are the only independent people in this country who proactively help couples needing donated eggs to find an altruistic egg donor in the UK.
As Alison, who started Altrui, says:
“If I needed donated eggs I know that I would be very fussy about where I went for help and who I trusted to help me. I would have a myriad of questions and would want to be assured that whoever I was dealing with really knew what they were talking about and had the knowledge and experience to do things properly.
Although I admit that primarily I would be looking for a donor who was a great match with me and with whom I felt a connection, I would also be concerned that the donor was being well looked after and cared for and really appreciated for her extraordinary generosity in making such an amazing gesture. I would want to feel that the people I was turning to for help cared enough to get it right for me.
In starting Altrui, that is exactly what I have set out to provide. My aim at all times is to offer exactly what I would want if I was in your position.” Alison
There is no need to go abroad for Egg Donation
We have such a good record of finding and helping altruistic egg donors in the UK that there is now no need to go abroad for egg donation unless you particularly want to. We have no wish to persuade you against going abroad if that is what you would like to do, but there are many advantages to staying in the UK with Altrui, which you can read about here, and we would not like you to make a decision without being fully informed.

Exclusive Egg Donation
When we find you an egg donor, Altrui guarantees that she donates her eggs exclusively to you, which ensures that the best embryos can be chosen to give you the very greatest chance of pregnancy. With this system we are finding that the pregnancy rate with Altrui is currently well above average.
Fully regulated Egg Donation
Egg donation takes place at specific UK Licensed Treatment Centres where we have an agreement in place. We are fully compliant with HFEA regulations and work within the legal and ethical framework. Before we can actively help you find a donor:
- EITHER you will need to be registered at one of these Licensed Treatment Centres, and have a patient ID number.
- OR if you are not registered at one of these units, but at another Centre, we can still probably help you find a donor but we will need a bit of time to set this up, so please talk to us first.
A personal and professional egg donation service
Altrui is all about getting it right for you and the egg donor. We believe that we offer a highly personal and professional service through people who are passionate and care about helping you find the right egg donor to start your family.
