Thanks to egg freezing advances, frozen donor eggs offer a viable, effective and affordable way to have treatment if you need an egg donor.

At Manchester Fertility, we have our very own egg donor bank available to all our patients. We have an extensive range of egg donors from all walks of life, giving you the widest choice of suitable donors that meet your preferences. All our donors are also UK-based and registered with the HFEA, so you know you will only be receiving the best quality eggs for your treatment and all donors will be traceable.

You may be unsure as to whether using fresh or frozen eggs is the right choice for you. Here are a few things you may wish to consider about donor eggs when thinking about a donor eggs treatment cycle:

Frozen donor eggs: The most advanced freezing methods

All our donor eggs, both frozen and fresh, come from our own award-winning Manchester Donors egg donor programme and are from donors of the same profile – young women aged 18-35 who are healthy and fertile.

Modern fast-freezing methods ensure high survival rates of our frozen donor eggs after thawing, giving you the reassurance of viable donor eggs for your treatment.

Donor egg pregnancy rates

Whether you choose fresh or frozen donor eggs, you’re still using the eggs of a young healthy woman of peak fertile age to have a baby. There are a lot of factors that affect chances of pregnancy when using donor eggs - it’s not reliant on the type of donor egg alone.

Our team will be able to provide advice tailored to you and will ensure you are given the best chance to conceive successfully.

Guaranteed donor eggs for your treatment

At Manchester Fertility, our careful egg donor selection process and stimulation protocols mean we offer a minimum of six donor eggs for both fresh and frozen cycles, giving you guaranteed UK donor eggs for your treatment.

With fresh eggs, you and your donor’s cycles must be well timed so egg collection and insemination can be achieved. We will guide both you and your chosen donor through this process to ensure the treatments run as smoothly as possible.

Frozen donor eggs are available at a time that suits you – with no waiting list.

Funding packages for all types of donor eggs

We now offer funding packages for both frozen and fresh donor eggs, giving patients greater choice and making donor eggs treatment even more accessible in the UK.

Our new Frozen Donor Eggs Multi-Cycle Package offers multiple cycles of treatment for a single, fixed substantially discounted price compared to the same treatment individually. This will give you cost control and the peace of mind that you have more than one cycle to try and conceive.

Access Fertility’s Donor Eggs IVF Refund plan is for women using fresh eggs from our donor programme and offers multiple cycles of treatment with the reassurance of a refund if you don’t have a baby.

Or you can choose to pay for treatment as you need it – it’s entirely your choice and doesn’t affect your treatment recommendation.
