Egg-sharing is an IVF treatment which brings together women having conventional IVF (the sharer) with those unable to produce their own eggs (the recipient). The treatment enables these two groups of women to help one another - egg-sharers receive IVF treatment at a significantly reduced price, whilst recipients receive the eggs they need for IVF. So, if you decide to share your eggs or become a recipient, you'll be helping both yourself and someone else to become parents.

Egg-sharing was pioneered by consultants at the London Women's Clinic more than 20 years ago - and today, while several thousand women have benefited from this procedure across the world, it is still the LWC that is widely regarded as the home of egg-sharing. Recent results show high rates of success for both sharers and recipients.

How to become an egg-sharer

In all cases, acceptance is dependent on an initial medical consultation and blood tests. All egg-sharers must be 35 or under and meet the additional criteria established by the UK's regulatory body, the HFEA. Egg-sharing can raise ethical and legal questions and counselling is always necessary prior to starting treatment.

Please note that egg-sharing is not available at our Darlington clinic.
