Wanting to egg share

I am 29 and my BMI is 33 – I am currently reducing this on a weight loss programme. I have had two previous natural pregnancies with no problems, I have no known fertility issues and my partner and I would love a child together, and need ICSI for a chance of this to happen. I am wondering would I be accepted to egg share while losing weight? Thanks in advance.

You will need to reduce your weight to have a BMI of 30 or lower to be accepted onto the egg sharing programme.  There are other acceptance criteria too such as hormone level and being a non-smoker.  More information can be found on our website.  Keep up losing your excess weight as this is really important if you are trying to conceive.
