Women who have donated their eggs to help someone they know get pregnant have shared their experiences as part of an ongoing research project to help others who are considering the process.
Experts from the Centre for Reproduction Research (CRR) at De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) have partnered with four leading UK fertility support organisations to produce a short guide which shares the advice given by women who have acted as a ‘known egg donor’.
In collaboration with the SEED Trust, Pride Angel, Fertility Network UK and Donor Conception Network, DMU researchers asked the women what advice they would give to others who are intending to donate their eggs in a known arrangement (donating to someone they know).
The new resource is free to download for anyone 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.
