Need donor eggs?

At the Herts & Essex Fertility Centre, we can offer treatment to those women who need donor eggs, and usually within two to three months* of application. As one of the busiest egg donation centres in the UK, we can offer you a 54% (Jan 2016-Jan 2017) chance of achieving a clinical pregnancy.

The majority of our egg donors come to us via our egg sharing programme. This is where you would receive half of the eggs collected from a woman who is undergoing fertility treatment herself.

She will have met all the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) criteria and she will also have been assessed as having the potential to produce a good number of healthy eggs (see diagram below).

We are also happy to treat women who bring their own known donor along to the clinic.


*For treatment with caucasian eggs – other ethnic backgrounds may have a slightly longer wait.
