Getting Egg Donation Right

For you as a donor, for you as a recipient and for your future child.

We specialise in finding, matching and looking after altruistic egg donors with one-to-one, anonymous donation. We are proud of the outstanding success rates with Altrui donors, from working in partnership with the best clinicians in this country.

Our whole ethos at Altrui is not just to get egg donation right for our donors and recipients but, most importantly, for any child, or children, that may be born as a result. Whilst we are fully focused on helping our recipients to get pregnant, we also look longer term to consider what is best for any future children, which is why we have taken such care in planning the way Altrui works and what makes us so different.

Hundreds of people have realised their hopes of starting, or completing, a family through us.

Using our extensive knowledge and understanding of all aspects of egg donation and IVF, we guide egg donors and recipients through the process, offering a very personal and unique service.  Our aim is to make the journey simple, safe and rewarding for the kind women who come forward to donate some of their eggs.

Our dedicated team is committed to making the egg donation process the very best experience for everyone. Your care is paramount at every step of the way, reflecting the Altrui ethos.

Thanks to the many incredibly generous women in the UK who have donated eggs through Altrui, our egg recipients no

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!

Corinne - 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.

Sarah - Egg Donor

Thank you to everyone at Altrui for taking such good care of me. You have been super stars!! You helped to fulfil my dream of becoming an egg donor and I couldn’t have done it without your kindness, support and dedication.

Kirsty - Egg Donor

Being a donor through Altrui was the best decision I ever made, I was treated absolutely wonderfully by all the staff at Altrui, and I would wholly recommend that anyone thinking of becoming a donor should choose Altrui.

Caroline - Egg Donor

The procedure itself was really straightforward, very little discomfort on the day itself, swelling afterwards, but that is to be expected. The thing is, all these minor inconveniences pale into insignificance when you consider what you are actually doing: giving the gift of life and hope.
