Consider the Life-Changing Power of Egg Donation in 2024

This information was correct at the time of publishing. It may not reflect our current practices.

In the New Year, many of us set out on a journey of self-improvement, setting resolutions to improve our lives and positively impact us and those around us. One extraordinary resolution that can genuinely change lives is egg donation—a truly selfless act of kindness that holds immeasurable importance for those who long to experience the joy of parenthood.

For many people, the dream of becoming a parent is deeply ingrained. However, age, fertility, genetics, medical challenges or gender can pose significant hurdles, making the path to parenthood seem out of reach. This is where the profound altruism of egg donation comes into play. 

Egg donation involves a generous donor providing eggs to intended parents (or parent), offering a glimmer of hope to couples struggling with infertility, same-sex couples, and individuals who dream of experiencing the joys of parenthood. 

The Power of Altruism:

Altruism is the driving force behind egg donation. When you decide to go on this journey, you are sharing a part of yourself to bring happiness to others. It's a powerful expression of compassion and empathy, demonstrating that even in a fast-paced world, there is room for kindness and generosity.

New Year Resolutions & Egg Donation – Making the Connection:

As we contemplate our New Year's resolutions, we often focus on self-improvement—shedding unwanted weight, getting fit, and prioritising our health. It's precisely these resolutions that make women in pursuit of a healthier lifestyle a perfect candidate for egg donation.

Maintaining a healthy Body Mass Index (BMI) and adopting a smoke-free lifestyle are common goals for many embarking on their New Year resolutions, and it just so happens that these lifestyle choices align seamlessly with the criteria for becoming an egg donor. By committing to altruistic egg donation, you not only contribute to the well-being of others but also align your personal goals with a truly transformative and life-changing decision.

If you would like support managing your BMI you can seek support from the NHS, where resources and advice are readily available.

The Kindness of Egg Donation Makes a Difference:

Imagine the joy you could bring to a couple who has faced heartbreak and disappointment on their path to parenthood. By donating your eggs, you become a catalyst for their dreams, offering a chance at life, love, and the immeasurable bond between parent and child. Like Amy, who went through treatment with donor eggs in 2023.


"Thank you to everyone at Manchester Donors & Manchester Fertility for making my dream come true!

I gave birth two weeks ago to a healthy little girl – Hayley. We are both doing really well - I had a natural birth without complications. She's relaxed, and my whole family is smitten!

Thanks again for all your help finding my egg donor and for everything everyone at the clinic did for me!"

Like Amy's egg donor, deciding to proceed with the egg donation journey is a personal and profound experience. From the initial decision to the egg collection, every step is a testament to your commitment to making a positive impact. While the physical aspect of egg donation is crucial, the emotional journey is equally significant. Many donors find a sense of fulfilment and purpose in knowing they have played a vital role in changing someone's life forever.

The Criteria for Egg Donation

To transform your New Year's resolutions into a truly impactful and altruistic journey, consider the criteria needed for egg donation:

Age between 18 and 35: Natural fertility and egg quality start to decline after 35, making this age range optimal for successful egg donation.

BMI between 19 and 35: Maintaining a healthy Body Mass Index aligns with typical New Year's resolutions and is crucial for a successful egg donation.

Non-smoker: Smoking, including e-cigarettes, can adversely affect fertility and compromise the quality of eggs. To become an egg donor, you must be a non-smoker or have stopped smoking for at least three months.

Clear medical history: A clean medical history, free from genetic or hereditary disorders such as Type 1 Diabetes, is essential to ensure the health and well-being of both the donor and the future child.

Willingness to attend regular clinic appointments: Committing to attending regular appointments, including counselling, is crucial. We want to ensure you fully understand the implications of your decision to donate eggs and provide the necessary support throughout the process.

Openness to being identifiable: UK law mandates that a donor-conceived person can apply for information about you when they turn 18. Being open to being identifiable adds a layer of transparency and connection to the donation process.

So, as we embrace the opportunities and possibilities of 2024, let's consider resolutions that extend beyond personal goals—resolutions that have the power to transform the lives of others.
