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.

Whenever I travelled and sent in picture of my train tickets my funds were always back in my account within hours of sending them in. I would just like to thank everyone at Altrui for being so amazing – so much so that you may have persuaded me to go ahead and do it all over again!

Altrui and the clinic are a big part as to why I chose to donate again and again – without the fab service I wouldn’t have been able to do it and it’s been like a journey with friends each time. Lovely people, lovely place and I can’t recommend you all highly enough.

My husband and I would like to express our immense happiness and gratitude to Altrui for their assistance during our difficult journey to become parents. This has been for us a difficult but wonderful experience that has enabled our dream to become mother and father to come true. Thank you very much Altrui.

Egg donation is one of the most amazing, fantastic experiences I have ever had. The joy you get from it is undescribable; it’s the most amazing thing a woman can do, by helping another couple to have a child. I can’t wait to donate again – best thing I’ve ever done.

I have recently donated my eggs for the first time, after using Altrui. They found the best clinic in my area, with an amazing caring doctor! And, most importantly, they matched me with an incredible recipient couple!

Throughout my journey with Altrui, everyone around me told me what an amazing thing I was doing. And tbh, it didn’t feel quite as amazing to me – it just felt right, felt normal. Everyone deserves the chance to at least try for a family, and to me, that’s all I was doing – giving them that chance. To me, it was just a short course of medication and then my part was done.

BUT, after the procedure, I was handed a gift from my recipient and a note inside. It was only after reading this note that I truly understood the impact of what I had given this couple. While this is certainly one of the things I am most proud of myself for doing, it’s not entirely life-changing for me – I’ve always been a caring person that will help others, but my day-to-day life is still the same. But to my recipient, it has changed their own world! It’s not just a handful of eggs, it’s the chance of a family, it’s a massive bundle of hope, it’s their dreams hopefully coming true!

And all of this is down to Altrui! Every little detail is explained every step of the way – at 6.30am and at 11.30pm! They really do value their donors AND their recipents! I honestly cannot recommend Altrui enough! Thank you so much for helping change a couple’s life!
