What is egg-sharing?
Egg-sharing is an IVF treatment which brings together women having conventional IVF (the sharer) with those unable to produce their own eggs (the recipients). Egg-sharing enables these two groups of women to help one another - egg-sharers receive free IVF treatment whilst recipients receive the eggs they need for IVF. So if you decide on egg-sharing, whether as a sharer or recipient, you'll be helping both yourself and someone else become a mum.
Egg-sharing was pioneered by consultants at the London Women's Clinic nearly 20 years ago - and today, while thousands of women have benefitted from egg-sharing across the world, it is still the London Women's Clinic that is widely regarded as the home of egg-sharing. Recent results show high rates of success for both sharers and recipients.
