Could your health be stopping you from being an egg donor?
Now’s the time for New Year health kicks and diets, and at Manchester Donors we often start to receive a lot of new egg donor applications from women who can now donate eggs, because they’ve improved their health and lifestyle.
If egg donation – or IVF and egg-sharing - is your goal in 2018, these are some of the positive changes you can make to help it happen:
If you apply to donate eggs, one of the first things we’ll do is check that you’re actually healthy and well enough to be an egg donor. We’ll only accept you into our programme if donating eggs won’t compromise your own health or wellbeing.
At Manchester Donors we spend a lot of time on preparing you for egg donation. This doesn’t just include a thorough medical assessment and fertility check but also psychological preparation in the form of counselling, to discuss the long-term implications of egg donation and how you feel about it.
Our focused approach to your care is one of the reasons why we were the first fertility clinic in the whole of the UK to be named a National Gamete Donation Trust Donor Centre of Excellence.
