I am in limbo land at the moment after an ectopic pregnancy,and trying to research eggsharing,as it is possibly are only way of affording IVF.

Can anyone give any advice/help on the following?

Would I find it harder to be matched up with someone due to the fact that I am Rhesus negative?

Also,my mothers younger brother was born with Spina Bifida & is mentally handicapped,would this make me unsuitable as a donor?

Thanks girls

Kathryn

Hi Katheryn,

You may like to ask peter in the embryologist section about this question.

Also one of our members (carols) has a website called www.donatingeggs.co.uk

Good Luck
Tony.

Hi Kathryn,

As Deanne said I don't think it makes any difference what your blood type is. Its more a case of CMV compatability. ::)

As for the genetic question, you would need to ask Peter that one and it would probably be a good idea to speek to your consultant about any concerns you may have.

What area of the country are you in? There are lots of women in your position of needing help with funding IVF and think that egg shareing is (at the moment) the best way to do it.

Good luck Carol

Hi. I'm blood group O RH negative. I've egg shared twice. I don't think the rhesus factor makes any difference.

Hi Kathryn

Im rehus negative and have just done an egg share scheme, my dads Uncles son was downs syndrome but the clinic was not concerned, the treatment didnt work this time but would def consider doing it again, the way I got through the negative result was to think that the receiptnets treatment worked, but its not made me think I wish I hadnt doen egg share, its worth considering talk to one of the counsellrs at the clinic if you have any major concerns, good luck x
