Who donates eggs and sperm for our embryo adoption programmes?

We accept less than 10% of potential applicants willing to become egg or sperm donors

The egg and sperm donors who take part in our embryo donation programme are comprehensively checked for medical fitness and mental health throughout the recruitment and evaluation process. Regardless of who we suggest as donors, you should feel comfortable that these requirements will be met.

 

Egg Donors

All potential egg donors are seen by three medical doctors, undergo laboratory testing and psychological counselling.

Our egg donors are fit, good looking and intelligent women with healthy children of their own.

Our egg donors are fit, youthful, good looking and intelligent women aged under 32, with healthy children of their own, a model medical history, perfect lab results and ideal follicular reserve.

We carry out a precise and analytical examination of possible egg donors. Before joining our bank of egg donors, women must pass a series of medical evaluations. The donors are also given a psychological screening and counselling to make sure they are completely comfortable with committing to the egg donation process. The egg donor selection process ensures we can provide you with the confidence you need to make your choice.

Thorough selection of potential egg donors enables us offering you the best quality eggs and the highest success rates

As our prospective egg donors are all aged under 32 with children of their own and an high follicular reserve, we can always gather a sufficient amount of eggs following even limited stimulation dosages. This low stimulation dose means we can maintain the natural quality of the egg, developing donor embryos that are very effective.

Our comprehensive medical evaluation method for women donating eggs ensures we can give you donor eggs that are the best quality and therefore, present you with the greatest chance of success and donor embryos that are highly effective.

Sperm donors

All potential sperm donors are seen by three medical doctors, undergo laboratory testing and psychological counselling

Our comprehensive medical evaluation process for sperm donors ensures we can provide you with the best quality sperm which will give you the greatest chance of success.

All our donors have been pre-screened and are shown to possess very high quality sperm:

  • greater than 80 mln/ml concentration
  • progressive motility (A+B greater than 60%)
  • sperm morphology normal
  • cryo-tolerance (will not lose its qualities after freeze-thaw procedure)

Our sperm donors are active, healthy, intelligent men aged 25-40 years old with healthy children of their own. They are good looking, but with no particularly distinctive features

The donor sperm we use does not need to use the sperm microinjection into the egg technique (ICSI). After donor sperm has gone through the freeze-thaw procedure, it still fertilises the egg using the most natural method.

Only sperm that is frozen-thawed is allowed to be used. By using this frozen sperm, we can help to prevent serious infections such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV being transmitted. We freeze and store samples for 6 months and then the donor will repeat the blood test to check for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV. If there is a clear result with no infection present, only then can a patient use the sperm.

NEW! Now we have the opportunity to offer you donor embryos created with donor sperm from the European Sperm Bank.

NEW! Now we have the opportunity to offer you donor embryos created with donor sperm from the European Sperm Bank. This means that you can gain access to extended profiles of not only our egg donors, but also of the sperm donors from the European Sperm Bank too and have the option of using an open donor.
