Are you one of the many women who can’t get NHS fertility treatment with donor eggs?

As NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) continue to reduce and restrict IVF provision, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to access treatment with donor eggs in some areas of the UK.

Many NHS CCGs don’t fund treatment with donor eggs at all. Others will only fund if certain criteria are met. And some will only fund the associated costs of treatment and not fund or source donor eggs – leaving finding an egg donor and all costs up to you, the patient.

Getting treatment in the UK with donor eggs is possible privately with Manchester Fertility – and it’s quicker and more cost-effective than you think. Here’s why:

Treatment with donor eggs: UK-wide acceptance

Unlike NHS clinics, we’re completely free to treat patients from anywhere in the UK and even internationally. We can help you have a baby with donor eggs no matter where you live and can tailor the treatment journey to suit you. We offer treatment up to the age of 50.

No waiting list: UK egg donors available now

We don’t have a waiting list for treatment or for donor eggs at Manchester Fertility. You can start treatment with us as soon as you’re ready, with a choice of UK egg donors to help you conceive.

All of our egg donors come from our own donor programme. They are:

  • Healthy and fertile UK women
  • Aged 18-35
  • HFEA registered
  • Fully identifiable to your child in future – you can also find out about donor siblings

Private treatment with donor eggs: Fresh or Frozen

We aim to make private fertility treatment with donor eggs accessible to all. So we offer a choice of fresh or frozen donor eggs at Manchester Fertility.

Treatment using frozen donor eggs has a shorter timeframe as the donor eggs are already stored in our donor bank, so you can begin treatment immediately.

With a fresh donor we will work with you to synchronise your cycle with your chosen donor and arrange a suitable treatment plan.  We’re here to help you decide which type of donor eggs are best for you.

Discounted treatment with donor eggs

Would you like discounted treatment with donor eggs? Or a money-back guarantee? We offer both at Manchester Fertility, through our range of pre-paid funding plans.

If you’re using fresh donor eggs, we offer Access Fertility’s Donor Eggs IVF Refund Plan, which gives you up to three cycles of discounted treatment with a 70% refund of your plan fees if you don’t have a baby.

If you’re using frozen donor eggs, we offer our own Frozen Donor Eggs Multi-Cycle Package, which gives you up to two cycles of treatment at a substantial saving.

Or you can choose to pay for treatment traditionally as you go along – the choice is yours.

No matter how you choose to fund your treatment with us you are guaranteed six donor eggs per cycle.

Expertise, support and special care

Using an egg donor to conceive has its own unique implications, emotions and sensitivities, which we well understand at Manchester Fertility through our many years of expertise in donor eggs treatment.

Professional counselling is included in your treatment to help you prepare for your journey and your future together as a family, along with the personal support of our dedicated Donation Team every step of the way.

Treatment with donor eggs: Get started

It’s easy to request treatment with donor eggs at Manchester Fertility. Just self-refer online or contact our Donation Team on 0161 300 2737 to get things started. We don’t need a GP referral.

We’ll start with an initial informal chat so we can understand more about you. You’re also invited to come and visit us  for a free 1-2-1, to talk to  about treatment, learn more about our egg donors and funding options.

If you’re planning to visit the Fertility Show Manchester next month (24-25 March), we’ll be there at stand B10 all weekend, ready to answer any of your questions.
