Hi,

Does anyone know what the criteria is for egg-sharing?  For example, what is the cut-off age and if you have endo will they still accept you? 

Thank you.

Evening,

    All clinic's have different rules so it is best to call around a few and ask to speak to the egg share co-ordinator and they will answer your questions criteria at the clinic i am sharing with was this:

Be aged 21-35

Have a normal FSH level (below 10 IU/l)

Have normal blood screens for HIV, Hepatitis B&C, Syphilis, Haemoglobin, Cystic Fibrosis and chromosome studies

Have no family history of inheritable disorders

Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of <30.

Hi Jo

My clinic is the same as Katie... apart from you have to be under 35. With regards to endo.... I have endo moderatly.... Nothing to serious, And I am aloud to egg share. But some clinic wont treat you if you have serve endo. As it can be past down to a female child born from your eggs.

Good luck... I think if you get all the tests going ASAP you should be ok.

Hi
I have just egg shared and I have quite bad endo.  The clinic didnt have a problem with it at all and it was my first go at IVF/ICSI egg sharing and I got 20 eggs - and a BFP!
