Lesbian IVF

I am 22 years old and as far as I am aware I have no fertility problems. However I have a female partner and when the time comes we would like to use her egg, but have me carry. Can I get IVF on the NHS for this reason?

Receiving donated eggs from your partner is a treatment we offer at Manchester Fertility. Your partner would have to be able to donate to you and I would recommend you both have a fertility MOT before you decide on your treatment. You will need to approach your GP to find out if you are entitled to NHS treatment.
