In the UK today there is an increasing number of women who, for many different reasons, need donor eggs in order to conceive. We are working to find donors and, when you think of the immense impact that successful treatment can have on the lives of an infertile couple, you will understand why, as a potential donor, you are so important and so very special.
If you decide to become an egg donor, you will have the opportunity to help one of these women to bring new life into the world and a new light into their lives.
Who needs your help?
We need egg donors in order to help women who can no longer produce their own eggs. It may be that they have lost their ovaries due to cancer, surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy or that they are suffering from early menopause.
You will be financially compensated for donating your eggs in line with the HFEA guidelines in the UK, further details can be found on the HFEA website. Any donation made in the UK must be made in an HFEA licensed facility and you must be aware that UK donor anonymity has been removed (more information on the HFEA website).

An excellent resource for egg donors, The National Gamete Donation Trust (http://www.ngdt.co.uk/) was set up in 1998 as a national government-funded charity to raise awareness of and seek ways to alleviate the national shortage of gamete (sperm, egg and embryo) donors. In particular the NGDT has a very useful page for egg donors: http://www.ngdt.co.uk/images/stories/pdfs/becoming_an_egg_donor.pdf
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (http://www.hfea.gov.uk/) is the UK’s independent regulator overseeing the use of gametes and embryos in fertility treatment and research. They have plenty of information about the rules and requirements governing egg donation: http://www.hfea.gov.uk/egg-and-sperm-donors.html
