Donor egg to older partner

Would it be possible for me to donate my egg to my older partner? Would I then have to be part of the egg share programme for other women? And would I still be eligible for the IVF discount if the donation was solely within my family unit? Thank you.

You can donate your eggs to your partner.  We have experience of this with other couples in your situation.  You also can be part of the egg share programme as your donation is occurring in your family unit.  However, if you only donated to your partner you would not be eligible for any discount on your treatment.
