A form of IVF that uses another person’s donated eggs instead of your own.

Is IVF using donor eggs right for me?

There are many reasons why you might think about using donor eggs instead of your own – from a reduced egg reserve, starting a family in later life or as a result of cancer treatments. But whatever has brought you here, a known or anonymous donor can be a viable and rewarding chance to have a baby of your own. If you decide this is the route for you, you’ll be offered donors who our egg donation team believe are a close match to you. We can offer counsellor support to help you through this process. Understanding the overpowering influence of nurture in a child’s development can be helpful to many patients. 

Who’s it for

You might want to use IVF with donor eggs if…

  • Your egg store is low or nil
  • You were born without functioning ovaries (e.g. Turner syndrome)
  • Your ovaries have been removed for cancer, ovarian tumour, or endometriosis
  • Your ovaries were damaged by previous chemotherapy or radiotherapy
  • You’ve experienced multiple IVF failures 
  • You have an inheritable condition


Statistics at Harley Street

We have an increasing availability of donor eggs at our clinic and stored in our donor bank.

It means we can match most recipients with a suitable donor very soon, even for patients of ethnic minority origins. We also use a new egg freezing technique known as vitrification that provides over 90% survival rates for the freezing and thawing process.
