Treatment Options with Donor Eggs
Following your fertility investigations (link) and considering your situation, the clinician will recommend a treatment. There are several treatment options with donor eggs.
Our Imported Donor Egg Programme
We offer a successful treatment programme with imported donor eggs. We import frozen donor eggs from our recruitment partner clinic in Europe. Donors are matched to your characteristics and preferences and are young women in their twenties who comply with Irish legislation. The egg thaw, fertilisation and embryo transfer procedure takes place in Ireland.
Our Known-Donor Egg Programme
We can facilitate treatment for patients who have a person known to them (i.e. a sister, cousin, or friend) who is willing to be their donor. We have long-standing experience in providing this service if it is an option for you.
Travel Abroad: Treatment Coordination Programme
We provide coordination services and linked care for patients who wish to attend partnered clinics abroad for anonymity or for specific services, e.g. a donor of a particular ethnic origin.
Donor Egg Treatment Process
After meeting with the doctor to discuss your plans, you will speak with the donor egg team who will coordinate the process and guide you through each step. Your first appointments will be with a fertility nurse specialist and our fertility counsellor. The fertility nurse specialists in the donor egg team have extensive experience in donor egg treatment, and they will guide you through the process.
Donor Egg Nurse Meeting
At this meeting, the fertility nurse specialist will explain the donor matching process, information about the treatment, options to consider, and legislation concerning the use of donor eggs in treatment.
All patients wishing to embark on donor-assisted treatment must see the fertility counsellor for an implications counselling session. The session is not an assessment but a discussion to explore the practicalities and emotional elements of using a donor to build your family.
