How to donate eggs in the UK

Altruistic egg donation is a wonderful, generous and selfless act. It allows a chance to make a real and meaningful difference in the life of another; to give hope to those who have none and offer a precious, life-changing gift that will help make another family complete.

It really is important that you are able to make a fully informed decision about whether egg donation is right for you. As the only organisation in the UK who specialise in finding and looking after altruistic egg donors, Altrui is 100% committed to giving you all the information and support you need to make your egg donation an easy and rewarding experience for all.

More information can be found on other pages and there is a selection of videos in which an Altrui egg donor talks to the experts and asks questions about egg donation. An information pack is also available to download or, if you would just like to talk it through (without any obligation at all), please get in touch directly and we will be happy to have a chat in complete confidence.

Probably the best thing I’ve ever done. I feel incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to help another couple create their very own family. Not only that, but what I have learned from the entire process about myself and fertility are invaluable!

Liz - Egg donor

Becoming a donor was one of the most amazing journeys, knowing that the gift you are going to give to someone is a life changing gift. From day one of my appointments and starting my treatment I received an amazing amount of support from both Altrui and the clinic I was allocated, they were with me every step of the way.

The whole process of egg donation, to me, was quite easy. The hardest part, I think, was trying to write about myself for my profile! I was worried about injecting myself with the hormones but my nurse was happy for me to ring her when I was about to do it and I had absolutely no problems and didn’t find it uncomfortable at all. If I ever needed anyone, there was always someone at the end of the phone. I was never worried because I knew I’d be able to speak to someone and Altrui sent me plenty of helpful information. The team assigned to me for the procedure were very informative, helpful and attentive and I would highly recommend every team for every part of the experience.

I would recommend Altrui to anyone thinking of donating. They were helpful from the beginning to the end. They were always checking up to see how I was going on and they would respond to my calls and texts quickly. The staff are so friendly and made me feel at ease.

Even when recovering after the egg retrieval they rang to check up on me and gave me the best advice for after care.

I feel so happy that I have been able to help a couple and have given them the best gift they could ever ask for – a family.

I would definitely think about donating again in the future.

The experience as a whole has been amazing. I cannot fault the dedicated staff at Altrui who really do have donors at the heart of everything they do. Such a personal and caring service. I felt fully informed at every stage and it ran so smoothly. The clinic was lovely and the staff there mirrored the caring and thoughtful service I received from Altrui. It has been a real pleasure from start to finish and I would recommend donation to anyone who is able to. I feel so privileged to be part of something so special and can’t wait to find out more about how my donation has helped someone start or expand their family.
