Egg & Sperm Donation

Egg and Sperm Donation

If a patient can not produce healthy eggs or sperm themselves, they may be able to receive eggs or sperm from a donor to help them get pregnant. Fertility treatment with donor eggs is normally carried out using IVF. Anyone who registers to donate their eggs or sperm after 1 April 2005 can no longer remain anonymous and has to provide information about their identity. This is because a child who is born as a result of eggs or sperm being donated is legally entitled to find out the identity of the donor upon reaching the age of 18 (HFEA Code of Practice 8th Edition, section 11: 11.30 & 11.31)
