    Are Donor Eggs Right For You?

    Posted: 14 April 2018
    Are Donor Eggs Right For You?

    Not sure if using donor eggs is right for you? Treatment using donor eggs offers an amazing way for infertile women to have a baby but it’s not always easy to make the decision.

    It often comes at an emotionally difficult time, when IVF treatment with own eggs has failed or there has been an unexpected diagnosis of needing an egg donor.

    At Manchester Fertility, you don’t go through this alone. We’ll help you make the right decision, so you can look forward to having a family together with our support every step of the way.

    Dedicated donation team

    Brought together specifically to personally help people who need donors to conceive, our dedicated Donation Team has in-depth understanding and expertise of donor conception.

    They’ll take you through your journey, making sure everything happens when it should whilst also providing you with personal one-on-one support. They’ll be by your side at every stage, from initial treatment enquiry to treatment outcome.


    You’ll also be given professional support from our fertility counsellors. They’ll discuss how you feel about using an egg donor, address any worries or concerns you have and prepare you for what may happen in the future.

    Such as how to tell your child how they came to be born, discussing your decision with family and friends and what happens if your child does want to find who their egg donor is via the HFEA, when they turn 18.

    Counselling happens early in your journey as the implications of using an egg donor are considerable and need careful thought before you can consent to treatment. But once these are understood, it can be a relief to know that we can help you have your family through egg donation, so you can focus on getting ready for parenthood.

    Finding the right egg donor support

    We’re also here to help you find your egg donor. Finding an egg donor who you’re similar to can provide a lot of reassurance and comfort, so we put great effort into donor matching. Choosing the right egg donor can take time, and we’ll support you in making the right decision for you.

    Our egg donors are all healthy, young and fertile UK based women aged 18-35, who write detailed donor profiles to give you real insight into who they are. We also get to know them well, so are best placed to advise and help you in your choice.
