At some point fertility issues will affect 1 in 6 couples here in the UK– that’s over 3.5 million people.
Sometimes fertility problems and issues can be addressed and couples will be able to conceive using their own eggs and sperm whilst having treatment. But when this is no longer an option, couples who are still struggling to conceive may need the help of egg donors to realise their dream of having children and becoming parents.
However, in the UK there is a well-documented shortage of eggs. It is not unusual for many clinics to have waiting lists of up to a year and this has often ‘put off’ couples from seeking help and advice as they believe the wait and journey will be simply too long and arduous.
But there is good news as currently this is not the case at London’s Harley Street Fertility Clinic (HSFC), and many women will be able to start treatment here quickly. But, we always need women from all backgrounds to become egg donors. By doing this, they can give the ‘gift of life’ to those who desperately need help when trying to conceive and other options have sadly failed.
We are extremely grateful to our egg donors and would like to take this opportunity to thank all of them past, present and future.
If you think you could help by becoming an egg donor please call the clinic for more information or to book an appointment with one of our consultants.
