Hi Peter - I hope you are well.

Can you tell me what the implications would be if we were to accept eggs (in an egg-share cycle) from a CMV+ donor (I am CMV-).

Love Nicky xxxxxxx

CMV can cause birth defects, I would advise not going with a CMV postive donor

Good luck!

Hi Peter - A little more concerned now! Should I be worried that a clinic has suggested that we could use a CMV+ donor as CMV is carried in the fluid around the egg, and this is then cleared away??

The best thing to do here is to take advice directly from your clinic as they know all of the details. Personally I would not use a CMV pos donor on a CMV neg recipient.

Good luck!
