How we assess and prepare egg donors

Recruiting an altruistic egg donor is both complex and time consuming. It requires knowledge, skill, sensitivity and a deep level of understanding to take a woman from the point where she is expressing an early interest, to the position where she is fully prepared to become an actual egg donor – ready, committed, suitable and aware of what to expect.

Being able to call upon our combined expertise in this situation is the massive underlying quality of Altrui and where our true value lies.

We are perfectly placed to offer every potential egg donor the guidance and support they need to make an informed decision. This takes years of experience to do well and is what we refer to as ‘due diligence’.

There are 3 main phases involved when finding an egg donor:

  1. Engaging in concerted and continuous advertising and marketing to raise awareness of the need for young altruistic women in the UK. All our egg donors are UK residents; they are not brought in from abroad.
  2. We give all potential egg donors comprehensive information and guidance, backed up by considerable knowledge, experience and patience. We carry out initial screenings and assessments of all prospective donors.
  3. We provide ongoing support throughout the entire egg donation treatment cycle, being on call, offering logistical help with travel arrangements, prompt reimbursement of expenses and access to a donors’ forum for reassurance and advice.

Because we value, respect and appreciate all our egg donors for the kindness and generosity they have shown, once we have found a great egg donor for you, it is unlikely that they will withdraw from the cycle or be turned down by the Licensed Centre on the grounds of unsuitability.

It usually takes up to eight weeks to take a person through this process to the point of being able to offer her as an egg donor.
