Could IVF with egg donation be right for me?
The reasons people have egg donation vary, but everyone who comes to us for help wants the same result—a healthy baby. We want that for you, too, and we do everything we can to support you on your journey. There are a number of different reasons why you may need donor eggs:
- You are in a same-sex male couple.
- Age. As you get older, the number and quality of your eggs decreases.
- Early menopause. During and after menopause, you stop having periods and producing fertile eggs.
- Some genetic conditions, like Turner syndrome, can have a negative effect on fertility.
Whatever your reason, we will look after you and give you the guidance you need.
Your egg donor
We expect that you’ll have an idea of what physical characteristics you would like your donor to have and so we share the information we have about the donor’s hair, eye colour, height, weight, build and complexion.
We also ask each of our egg donors to write a personal description, it won’t include any specific information such as names of people, places or schools, addresses or dates of birth; it’s just to help you to get a feel for what your potential donor is like.
We also ask our egg donors to write a goodwill message, which is a personal message for any children born from the donation. The donor might want to say why she wanted to give someone else the chance to become a parent, or include some words of wisdom or advice and hopes for the child for the future.

Our frozen egg bank
IVF with donor eggs, your options explained
We offer two options for IVF treatment using donor eggs:
Frozen egg donation: you can choose your donor online in our Care Fertility egg bank. You can select either a standard set of 6 eggs or a large set of 9 eggs. The eggs are thawed at your convenience, then fertilised either with partner or donor sperm, cultured in Care laboratories, and then your embryos are ready for your embryo transfer.
Fresh egg donation: our team will help to match you to a suitable donor. Your cycle is synchronised with your chosen donor’s treatment and when the donor’s eggs are collected they are fertilised either with your partner or donor sperm, cultured in our Care laboratories, and then ready for embryo transfer.
