About Our UK Donor Egg Treatment Programme

18th February 2016

Egg donation in the UK can be an arduous process because of the lack of egg donors and the time that it can take after you actually find a donor. At Shady Grove Fertility, our UK Donor Egg Treatment Programme has removed many of the obstacles that can cause frustration. Donor recipients have many choices given the availability of prescreened donors we make available in our extensive and detailed donor database.

UK Donor Egg Treatment Programme Offers Recipients a Choice of Donors Using Comprehensive Databases

We pride ourselves with being open and honest during your treatment process and find it especially important that patients are able to choose their donor from our extensive database. By having access to the donor database, you can browse through a wide range of donors. You have access to pictures, family history, and the donors’ likes, interests, and more importantly genetic and ethnic background. All of our donors have undergone medical, psychological, and genetic screening tests, and with only 3 percent of donor applicants being accepted into our program, we ensure that the chances of successful treatment are optimised.

All donors provide pictures of themselves as children; the majority post adult photos as well. We feel that this helps make the process more transparent. We realise you have many choices to make in deciding on your donor; it’s important to choose which traits are most important to you.

The Shady Grove Fertility Shared Risk 100% Refund Programme

We’re delighted to offer our patients a Shared Risk 100% Refund, which allows couples to attempt up to six cycles for a flat fee. If you don’t bring home a baby you will receive a 100% refund (some exclusions apply), giving you the peace of mind to move forward without any extra financial burden. We emphasise that this programme is shared because we are committed to a positive outcome and will cover the cost of the unsuccessful treatment. With six donor egg cycles, we’ve calculated that the chance of successful treatment rests at 82 percent, and our hope is that the likelihood will only increase over time.

Your experience with Shady Grove Fertility begins with a complimentary call and medical consultation with one of our experienced and supportive clinicians who specialize in treating our UK patients, Michael J. Levy, M.D. or Gilbert L. Mottla, M.D. After speaking with your physician, you’ll only need to visit the U.S. twice throughout your treatment. The first time you visit us will be to meet the team, make sure all preparations are in place, and address any concerns you might have. The second visit will be arranged for your embryo transfer once you’ve selected your donor. You will not have to wait to hear about your donor choice, so we encourage you to get started at your own pace and on your own terms.

Although we are an ocean apart from you, Shady Grove Fertility coordinates care with local fertility centres that will monitor and keep you informed throughout every step of the process.

If you have any questions about our Donor Database or the Donor Egg Treatment Programme in general, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team by calling 0208 003 0827, or email Amanda Segal our International Patient Liaison at [email protected].
