There are many reasons to consider assisted conception with donor eggs, including:

  • no ovaries or they have been removed
  • eggs are low quality and unlikely to achieve a successful conception
  • at risk of passing on a medical condition to your child
  • undergone cancer treatment adversely affecting your ovaries
  • experienced recurrent miscarriages

Egg donation can enable you to have a much wanted child and experience pregnancy first-hand.
