A simplified version of the egg donation process is outlined in the graphic above and we are at the end of the phone if you want to ask us about egg donation, or you can find out more information on our website.
During the preparation and screening process you’ll have initial screening blood tests and complete a health check and a counselling session for you to discuss the personal, emotional and legal aspects of being an egg donor. There is no cost to you for egg donation and you’re able to be reimbursed for expenses such as travel and childcare incurred to meet your appointments.
■ Do I need to have completed my family to become a donor? You don’t have to have finished your family to be an egg donor, we get enquiries from younger women before starting a family.
■ I have had my tubes tied can I still be a donor? Yes as egg donation treatment involves the ovaries, this also applies to hysterectomies.
