Donor Treatments

Donor Treatments

In certain cases, patients may need to embark on treatment using donated sperm or eggs. Patients may have relatives or friends who may wish to donate. These are known donors. A known donor and their partner would both have the opportunity to have implication counselling to ensure they are both comfortable with the process.

For patients who opt to use anonymous donors, we work with a number of independent organisations that specialise in sourcing donors. We will provide you with the guidance and put you in contact with these organisations. These organisations will work with you to match a donor that your requirements.

At The Surrey Park Clinic we offer a range of treatments with donor eggs or sperm for heterosexual, same sex couples and single women via intra-uterine insemination IUI, or In Vitro Fertilisation IVF. We work closely with a partner clinic in Spain, and whom have over 20 years experience of working with international patients. The treatment packages are tailored to each patients’ requirements and patients are prepared at the clinic in Guildford and just need to make a short trip to Spain for the transfer.

Donor Eggs

Egg donation in Spain is anonymous and altruistic, according to current Spanish legislation. Before a female donor is assigned to a recipient couple, she undergoes a strict testing before she can donate her eggs.

Egg donation in Spain

Our partner clinic is a leading egg donation centre in Europe with one of the first programmes in Spain. Because of their experience of more than 20 years, the large number of egg cell donations in our repository and the social and cultural status of our donors, they can guarantee that:

  • No waiting times.
  • We will conduct rigorous medical and genetic screenings of donor candidates.
  • We will select the most compatible donor from a medical perspective
  • We assign an exclusive donor for each receptor, which results in a better quality of egg cells and a higher number for donation. We guarantee an average donation of 11 egg cells and a minimum amount of 8 high quality eggs donated
  • We will perform a thorough selection of physical characteristics that are similar to the receptor’s

The patients will attend an initial consultation at The Surrey Park Clinic where any required blood tests, scans and the required paperwork is completed. The patient will be prepared, monitored and medication administered by the donor team in the clinic and you will be assigned to a consultant and nurse.

Advantages of donating eggs

  • It’s the reproductive medicine technique which gives the best results.
  • It does not involve ovarian hormonal stimulation or daily injections to the receptor
  • It does not require anaesthesia or sedation
  • It yields the lowest rates of miscarriage caused by chromosomal abnormalities related to age
  • Undergoing egg donation with The Surrey Park Clinic also comes with the assurance of flawless management at each stage of treatment.

Donor Sperm

Treatment with donor sperm is available for heterosexual and same sex couples and single women. This treatment can be either carried out by intra uterine insemination (IUI) or In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF/ICSI).

Sperm donors can be known or anonymous.

Known donors might be friends or relatives who may wish to donate. A known donor and their partner would both have the opportunity to have implications counselling to ensure they are both comfortable with the process.

For patients who opt to use anonymous donors, we work with a number of independent sperm banks both abroad and in the UK. We will provide you with the list of sperm banks we work with, as well as the information about ordering the samples that you require.
