If you’re using donor eggs, choosing your egg donor is one of the most exciting parts of treatment.

At Manchester Fertility our own egg donor programme means we can offer you an extensive choice of UK egg donors, to help you have your baby.

Here’s your quick guide to the process of choosing your egg donor, and how our dedicated Donation Team helps you find the right egg donor for you:

Step 1: What does your ideal egg donor look like?

The first thing to consider is the physical characteristics you want your egg donor to have – so things like height, weight, hair, ethnicity and eye colour. This is so we can match your most basic requirements to the donors we have available.

Step 2: What sort of person is your egg donor?

You also need to think about donor personality, job or hobbies. Do you want your egg donor to share your outlook on life?  Or share similar interests? All these extra details help us to further identify the best matches.

Step 3: Egg donor profile information

We’ll give you the full donor profiles of egg donors who fit your preferences for you to review. Profiles include a personal pen portrait and goodwill message written by each donor, so you can learn more about them. We’ll also give you our own insight to help you find the right donor – we get to know our egg donors well!

Step 4: Egg donor selection

It’s so important to us that you’re 100% happy with your donor choice. We’ll support you in any way we can, giving you all the time you need to choose your egg donor.
