Donor eggs and sperm
Some couples or individuals may only be able to have a baby by using eggs or sperm from another person, known as the donor.
All patients having treatment using donor eggs or sperm will be required to use our counselling service, to fully explore the implications, before making any final decisions.
Donated eggs may be offered to women suffering premature menopause, whose eggs will not fertilise, whose ovaries have been removed, women with a genetic disorder that may be passed on or, older women.
Our patients can receive IVF treatment with donor eggs within 3 to 6 months of their initial consultation.
At Complete Fertility we can help you find a donor that matches your choices based on health, physical traits, education, profession and hobbies. The donor may be altruistic or from our egg sharing scheme. Alternatively a family friend, a relative or a person known to you may be your egg donor.

Some men may have a very low sperm count or no sperm for a variety of reasons. In these cases, donor sperm insemination may be an appropriate treatment option. A couple may choose to use donor sperm if the male partner has a genetic disorder that might be passed on. Single women and same sex couples may also choose to use our sperm donor insemination programme.
Complete Fertility has a large sperm donor bank and patients can select donors based on their physical characteristics, their employment, education and hobbies. All our sperm donors are carefully screened and have full medical histories taken. The sperm is frozen and quarantined prior to use.
