IVF TREATMENT WITH DONOR EGGS
Scroll down for more information
Based on your selections, we are showing you information on IVF treatment with donor eggs.
Please note, the selection/information on this page is not an assessment of your condition or a recommendation of treatment.
IVF treatment is the most successful method of Assisted Reproduction and usually provides the highest chance of conceiving, unless there are contraindications. At your first appointment, the consultant will assess which treatment option offers you the best chance of success.
We will involve your partner fully in the treatment process, and encourage you both to attend all appointments if possible. Both partners will need to attend the first consultation with the Consultant.
We have our own donor egg bank and can match you with donors if required. For Caucasian donors,we do not have a waiting list. For ethnic minorities, we tend to have a longer waiting time. To help increase our selection of donors, we have a partnership with IVI, which has a large selection of donors with different characteristics. This is available for UK patients only.
If your male partner has a good sperm count, then traditional IVF (where the egg and sperm are placed in a petri dish to fertilise spontaneously) is usually the best form of treatment. If there is uncertainty around sperm count/quality then the consultant may ask for a semen analysis to be performed or additional tests. Your results will be reviewed and the consultant will review your results and come up with the best treatment for you in the circumstances.
