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.

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.

Sarah - Egg Donor

I have loved being an egg donor and I am happy that I have been a part of such a special process. I have my fingers permanently crossed for the couple, and I will always have them and their child in my heart and thoughts, I wish them all the happiness.

Robynne - Egg Donor

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.

We are incredibly grateful for your help with this, and all your support in general through the whole process. You have made what could have been a very difficult decision seem so positive and straightforward. Thank you again for everything.

Super news, today we took a home pregnancy test & for the first time ever it was a positive result. We are so so happy 🙂 We’ve been to the clinic for blood tests, and will repeat in 48hrs to check everything is OK with the medication levels I’m taking. So still feeling very surreal.
