Are you a single older woman and want to have a baby?

This information was correct at the time of publishing. It may not reflect our current practices, prices or regulations.

Here at Manchester Fertility we help many women to have children on their own. Thanks to our sperm donor recruitment programme, we have donor sperm from UK sperm donors.

But did you know that you can also opt to use donated eggs in your treatment too? We can help you have a baby if you are on your own and aged up to 50, by using the eggs of one of our donors instead of your own eggs.

This is because success rates for infertility treatment are heavily reduced once you reach your early 40s simply because of declining egg quality. If you’re over the age of 44, we strongly recommend the use of donor eggs instead.

By using the eggs of a much younger woman – all of our egg donors must be aged between 18 and 35 – it increases your chances of successful pregnancy because the eggs are younger and of better quality.

Treatment using both donated eggs and donated sperm involves minimal appointments and travel to and from our clinic. All the different tests and scans you need, and appointments with our consultants and counsellors, are carried out same-day if possible to ensure maximum convenience for you, especially if you are travelling to us from outside our region.

So if you do want to have a baby but are worried you’ve left it too late, if you are 50 and younger, we will be able to help you straight away at Manchester Fertility. You do not need to go abroad to foreign clinics for treatment, we have egg and sperm donors ready for you.

If you wish to talk to us about what this treatment involves, give our friendly Patient Advisors a call on 0161 300 2737. You can come and see us for a free, informal one-to-one where we can take you through what happens, and you can see our private clinic facilities where you’ll be receiving all aspects of your treatment.
