Types of egg donation treatment available at IVI
Using a known donor
You may choose to use eggs donated from a relative or another known person. The donor would undergo medical screening as part of the process and counselling would be necessary.
Using an IVI donor
IVI offer 2 types of donor source, both use non-identifying information such as height, ethnicity, hair and eye colour to provide the best possible match to the individual or couple.
IVI can source a UK donor and the whole process will take place in one of IVI’s UK clinics. IVI UK currently partner with Altrui who support IVI patients in matching recipients to egg donors, providing a one donor to one recipient policy. This guarantees that the donor will donate her eggs exclusively to you.
Children born as a result of egg or sperm donation in the UK have the right to access identifiable information about their donor once they reach 18 years of age. An egg donor’s details will be kept on the HFEA Register, where they are carefully protected and are not available to the general public. Donors have no legal rights to children born as a result of their donation.
Donor from IVI in Spain
IVI have a network of clinics across Spain that for many years have been working with UK patients who require egg donation. Egg donation is anonymous in Spain. IVI in Spain has the largest frozen egg bank in the world. We therefore have access to egg donors with all characteristics, with no waiting list.
