My BMI is 30. Does this mean I can't do the egg share programme?

Hi, my BMI is slightly over what you would like it to be. Do I need to get it to 29 to be able to have egg share or can I still be considered for the programme?

You do need to have a BMI under 30 to be eligible to be an egg sharer. The reason your BMI has to be in this range is that you should be at a healthy weight before you try to conceive.  Also at an optimal BMI you will have a better response.
