With egg donation, donated eggs are retrieved from a young, healthy donor. The eggs are fertilised and the resulting embryos transferred into your uterus. Our pregnancy rates are over 67% – better than most clinics in Europe.
Egg donation treatment can be very successful. As successful parents of a donor-egg baby ourselves, we can tell you that once your baby is in your arms, she feels truly yours.
Thanks to the steady supply of healthy, altruistic donors in the Czech Republic, waiting times for donor eggs are short. Under our exclusive deal with the clinic, all of our patients get priority booking. Your wait for donor-egg treatment could be just six weeks.
In the UK, availability of egg donors is a problem. Egg-share arrangements can be problematic, since donors are older and going through fertility treatment themselves. At our clinic, your donor is young, healthy and recruited just for you.
The shortage of UK donors isn’t helped by the legal right of donor-conceived children to trace their birth parents. Whatever your views on the matter, no such barrier exists in the Czech Republic: egg donors remain anonymous.
All donors are well-educated Czech citizens. Many are students: the city of Brno has the largest undergraduate population in the country. Rigorous medical screening includes psychological, sexual and genetic testing.
Donor matching is also excellent – we have an exclusive agreement with the clinic to use photos of donor-egg recipients in the matching process. This ensures an even closer physical match.
The clinic carries out almost 1,000 egg donation cycles a year: more than any other clinic in the country. The clinical pregnancy rate (fetal heartbeat) is 54.9%. But that success rate rises to 57.1% for the donor-egg patients our agency helps – reflecting the care and support we provide. The cumulative live birth rate over three cycles? Over 90%.
At Your IVF Journey, we’re always on hand to discuss your treatment options. Once you’re ready to proceed with your egg donation cycle, we’ll ask you to complete our medical questionnaire outlining your fertility history and donor choice.
After your questionnaire is reviewed, we’ll tell you if you need any more scans or tests. We’ll then schedule your treatment date and you’ll be free to book your flights, accommodation and arrange time off work.
In most cases, your medical preparation will include taking an injection to close down your ovaries a month before your embryo transfer. You’ll then start taking stimulation drugs. Once at the clinic, you’ll be given additional medication and your partner’s sperm sample will collected. Five days later, you’ll have your transfer.
Apprehensive? Please don’t be. Ben and Becky Saer, founders of Your IVF Journey, have had successful egg donation treatment at the Czech clinic. We’ll explain everything very clearly. We want your experience to be as stress-free as possible.

Your IVF Journey is committed to totally transparent pricing. Unlike most clinics, where ‘extras’ can often double the cost of treatment, your egg donation trip includes everything on the price list. Fertility drugs are separate – talk to us about our discounted rates.
Our agency fee is £395 for fresh donor-egg cycles.
The price includes careful management of your treatment by former patients of the clinic. Plus the chance to jump the queue and have your egg donation treatment in as little as six weeks. This fast-track route, together with our other financial benefits and savings worth up to £1,000, makes our egg donation service unbeatable. For a full breakdown of how we look after you, see our price list.
If you don’t fall pregnant after your first donor egg cycle, we’ll give you 50% off our agency fee for your second course of treatment. And if you’re not pregnant after two egg donation cycles, you only pay 50% of the treatment fee for your third cycle. (A copy of the clinic’s ‘shared risk’ offer is available on request.)
