We know how reassuring it is to get direct egg donor experiences and hear from those who’ve already donated eggs, when you’re deciding if it’s right for you
Here’s what one of our recent egg donors had to say about her donation journey with Manchester Fertility and Manchester Donors. She kindly contacted us to let us know how much she valued our support and care.
Here’s her story, which she allowed us to share:
“When I contacted Manchester Fertility about becoming an egg donor I wasn't sure what to expect, it was my first time to do anything like this. I was worried and doubted if I would be accepted.
“After my initial contact I was asked to come to the clinic for my first appointment…I was excited but also nervous. But I was very quickly assured that I was in good hands and in a very professional environment.”
Valued egg donors, professional support
“From that first appointment I was more than happy to work with the clinic team - everyone is very kind and they make you feel very valued as a person.
“The whole team is professional yet still it's not the clinical manner you may expect. All of my concerns were addressed and my questions promptly answered, nothing was too much, even when you have to reschedule something last minute.”
Stress-free egg donation process
“The whole process was very easy to follow and the procedure to collect the eggs went without a hitch.
“I am very glad and humble from this experience because it did give me insight into what some women endure so they can hold their precious baby and be a Mum.
“The whole team is absolutely superb and you can be assured they will make you feel at ease and supported 100% at all times. If I decide to donate again I’ll definitely go back.
Are you eligible to be an egg donor?
Would you like to donate eggs with Manchester Donors too? If you want to be an egg donor you must fulfil certain criteria.
This is to ensure a safe egg donation experience for our donors and healthy, quality eggs for those who need them to conceive.
Egg donor criteria includes:
- Being aged 18-35: We can’t accept egg donors older than this due to the natural decline of fertility as you age.
- Having a normal BMI: This is because being obese or underweight can make the egg donation process less effective and increase your risk of complications.
- Being a non-smoker: You must be a non-smoker or have quit at least three months prior to applying, due to the effects of nicotine on fertility and eggs.
- Having no history of genetic or hereditary conditions in your family.
If you can meet these criteria, you could apply to be an egg donor with us.
