Your best option is egg donation.  At Manchester Fertility we have no waiting list for treatment with donated eggs.  You can chose between fresh eggs which requires synchronising with the egg donor or frozen eggs which are ready for use in our bank.  For further information you can call our donation team on 0161 300 2734.
