Giving your eggs to someone can be an emotional process, which is why you must think it through completely before you undergo an egg donation to ensure that you complexly understand what you are going through. There are plenty of different legal requirements that you need to know as well, which will affect you at some point during your life, especially if the child born of the gift decides to find you. However, there are some restrictions on the law regarding who is able to know your identity, so make sure that you are comfortable with what that entails and who will know.


Requirements Set by the Law


There are some requirements that have been set by the law regarding your identity, which means that you can’t give anonymously, but that you must give your name. However, the good thing is that the people who are given the egg donation in Manchester, won’t know who has given it to them, but the children that are conceived are entitled to know who you are. When the child turn 16, then they will be able to find out information that won’t identify you, including any siblings that they might have that were also conceived in the same way. You will also be able to find out how many children were born using these gametes and the sex and year each was born.


Make sure that you are aware of your legal rights, including the right to know how many children were conceived using your gametes. However, you won’t be given any details regarding names and you aren’t legally responsibilities, claims or rights to the children born from the gametes.
