Egg Share after Sterilisation

Hi Brian, I'm 33 and thinking of taking part in the Egg Share programme. My problem is I was sterilised three years ago but I have not had a period since. Would this be something that could be sorted easily or would it cause a problem for us? Thanks

There are several reasons for not having periods and are likely to be unrelated to your sterilisation.  I would advise you to have your ovarian reserve checked by a blood test. If the result of this is satisfactory you may be a good candidate.
