If you are looking for an egg donor for your IVF, you are in the right place.
Egg donor in the UK?
Finding an egg donor for IVF can be difficult as phenotypes vary from patient to patient. According to medical organisation guidelines, you should look for the donor who matches your phenotype – at least – race, skin color, height, hair color, and eye color. As there are countries like the UK where egg donation is allowed – there are restrictions with donor’s compensation and anonymity. UK donors have to be non-anonymous according to the law. That makes it really difficult to find donors who are willing to donate their eggs. This is one of the reasons patients from the UK are going abroad for donor egg treatment. There’s also a financial reason – as treatment abroad is often cheaper than in the UK.
Egg donor in Australia?
There’s a similar situation in Australia as donors are non-anonymous so there are not many of them available and donor egg treatment is expensive. That’s why Australian patients going abroad as well as patients from the UK.
The UK and Australia are just examples of what causing patients to go abroad.
Egg donor in other countries?
Obviously, there are other countries struggling with similar problems or countries where egg donation is not allowed at all – for example – Germany where egg donation treatment is not allowed at all. German patients are forced to go abroad looking both for donors and IVF clinics.

However treatment costs are very high – the average donor cost is $8,000-12,000 and it doesn’t include the IVF treatment procedures (fertilization, lab procedures, embryo transfer etc.). There are many well-established egg banks in the USA, however, not all of them offer transportation of oocytes to Europe.
