Egg Sharing

We started the egg sharing programme in 2013 after my wife suffered an ectopic pregnancy, which resulted in her having both tubes removed. However after the initial tests and before we started treatment we decided it was too soon after and we weren't in the right state of mind so we pulled out before a recipient for her eggs was found. We now feel like we have dealt with all our past issues and want to start trying for a baby. Would we be able to take part in the egg sharing programme again?

I am sorry to hear about your ectopic pregnancy and glad that you now feel that you can try again.  It is difficult for me to answer whether you will be accepted as an egg sharer again as I don’t have details of your medical history.  I would suggest that you contact our Patient Advisors at the Unit and they will be able to advise you.
