Egg donation in UK is permissible subject to fulfilment of certain conditions and terms laid down by the government authorities. A growing proportion of women require donor eggs to conceive and we at Gaia Fertility are there to help you at every step of the process.
Donated eggs are provided to women who are experiencing early menopause, whose eggs will not fertilise, who have had their ovaries removed, who have a genetic condition that might be passed down, and older women.
To donate your eggs in the United Kingdom, you must be in good health, between the ages of 18 and 35, and must have two normal ovaries. Besides, the egg donors in UK must fulfil the following criteria:
To donate your eggs at our partner surrogacy clinics in UK, you must be able to go to the clinic to meet the donor team, undergo screening tests, get counselling, and have your eggs collected.
The egg donation process begins with self-administering daily injections to stimulate your ovaries for 10 to 12 days. The stage of your ovulation cycle will be determined by regular ultrasound scans. Besides, the actual egg collection takes between 15 and 30 minutes and can be done with a slight sedative.
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority oversees all egg donation in the United Kingdom. Currently, this implies that all donors and receivers must maintain their anonymity.
As the ones born through egg donors reach the age of 18, they have the right to seek the HFEA for the donor’s identity (full name, last known address, and date of birth).
Being an egg donor, you have no legal, financial, or social duties to any kid born as a result of your contribution now or in 18 years. Any child born after the donation will be the responsibility of the receiver.
If you select an anonymous donor, our expert professionals will try our best to connect you with a qualified donor who meets all of your requirements. Our Donor Coordinator will first offer you a matching request form, which we will use to add your information to our waiting list.
Physical traits such as ethnic origin, height, build; skin tone, hair color, and eye color are all factors to consider. Our egg donation coordinators will oversee the matching process to ensure that you get the best match possible.
Our specialized Egg Donation Team will be your initial point of contact with our clinic, and they will walk you through the treatment procedure and answer any questions you may have.
