Thinking about known egg donation?
In the UK it is possible to donate or receive eggs in what is referred to as a ‘known donor’ arrangement. Simply defined this is ‘donating to someone you know’. This kind of donation raises particular questions for those involved, which might relate to the kinds of relationships the egg donor and recipient have at the outset of treatment, as well as to any future relationships with one another and any offspring.
As part of a research project looking at the experiences of egg donors (the ‘EDNA’ study) De Montfort University, in collaboration with the SEED Trust, Pride Angel, Fertility Network UK and Donor Conception Network have produced this short guide for those thinking about known donation.
