Hello all,

Me and Hubby are going for ICSI as soon as we can.

I am going to donate my eggs. 

The hospital told me it could take quite a few months to find a match. I thought it would be quite quick. I thought there were quite a few people needing eggs.

Would this hold up my treatment? I would still donate even if it takes a few months.

Any information would be appriciated.

Hi there,

I heard recently at the NGDT conference that the Cromwell has more donors than waiting recipients - a very unique situation in the UK - but I would say if the news gets out then there will be a rush for treatment there. I presume you're egg sharing. I don't know if eggs for egg-share can be frozen while waiting for a recipient and it seems such a shame you may have to wait as you want to do this very kind thing by donating to another woman.

I hope you're not kept waiting too long. There are many other clinics in the UK with a dire shortage of eggs but I don't know if it's logistically possible for you to go to another clinic?

Best of luck in your treatment and I hope it all works out soon for you.

Hello,

Just spoken to the Cromwell and they have plenty of people needing donating eggs. They will call me next week to let me know the match.

Phew - you did get me worried there  :)

Hi - I'm so glad the Cromwell might be able to help you.

How strange that I heard there were many more donors than recipients, someone must have  gotten things very mixed up!! Sorry for any confusion. I do hope you're not waiting long to get a good match.

Best wishes

Ginger
