Become an egg donor
Becoming an egg donor takes a special person and is so important in transforming the lives of infertile couples. By deciding to be an egg donor you have the opportunity to help an infertile woman bring a child into their life, which is by far the best gift anyone could receive.
There are an increasing number of women worldwide who, for many reasons, can not conceive and need an egg donor. Unfortunately many women never get the opportunity to undertake treatment due to a shortage of egg donors.
Egg donors help to treat women who can no longer produce their own eggs. It may be that they have lost their ovaries due to cancer, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery or that they are suffering from an early menopause.
Who can become an egg donor?
You can become an egg donor if you are fit and healthy , between 21-35 years. Fertility clinics may accept known donors who are older than 35 years, please contact your local clinc for further information. It is important that your periods are regular and normal as this indicates that hormone levels are within normal range. Also you must be of a healthy weight and Body mass index (BMI).
How do I donate eggs
The procedure of egg collection would take place in a HFEA regulated clinic of your choice. The process would include counselling, infection and health screens. You would be required to take medication to stimulate the production of eggs, the procedure involves lightly invasive surgery to collect the eggs.
Things you should know
The birth mother retains all the legal rights to the child, it is advisable however to have a legal contract setting out any agreements if any for future contact of the donor with the child.
It is illegal within the UK for a woman to sell their eggs.
We at Pride Angel ask that all donors are donating purely because they wish to help infertile women, without any financial reasons. You are entitled however to ask for any resonable expenses occurred.
- As part of a research project looking at the experiences of egg donors (the ‘EDNA’ study) De Montfort University, in collaboration with Pride Angel, Fertility Network UK, Donor Conception Network and the SEED Trust have produced this short guide for those thinking about known donation.
- This resource shares the advice given by women who have acted as a known egg donor on a range of questions that this kind of donation raises, such as the relationships between the egg provider and recipient as well as any future offspring.
- This new, free downloadable resource is coming soon and is intended to be of use for those considering providing eggs in a known arrangement. It may also be of interest to recipients of donor eggs and professionals who are supporting families using this arrangement
