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.

I have to say it’s been a truly humbling experience going through this and realising the magnitude of what someone has gone through for me and my partner. After such a tough journey through infertility issues, it’s been inspiring and uplifting to think what a stranger has been prepared to do.

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.

Being a donor has been a life-changing experience for me. I am so glad I’ve been able to help someone to potentially have a child/children. The whole process was explained so well to me with all the different staff members/nurses/doctors etc, I felt at ease every step of the way.

In particular, of course, we will never be able to express our gratitude to our amazing donor. I become very emotional when I try to describe how I feel about the gift she gave us. Our boy is now thriving, and we are simply loving getting used to family life. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

I was well and truly looked after by the team and the hospital. The actual procedure was painfree. I would definitely do it all again. Also to wake up after egg collection to a personal letter from my couple made it all so real and well worth while knowing I had made a difference to their life.
