Getting Started

Egg Sharing

The Hull IVF Egg Sharing Programme:

One way to help patients who require donor eggs and to  help to reduce the cost of your IVF/ICSI treatment is through our Egg Sharing Programme.

You could give hope to those who have received the heartbreaking news that they won’t be able to conceive using their own eggs by donating half of your eggs following your treatment cycle.   This will also reduce the cost of your own treatment cycle.

On the attached price list you will see a fixed price for this treatment option, the Egg Sharing Arrangement Fee, which is substantially lower than the cost of standard IVF/ICSI.  The charge listed covers both treatment and drugs.  In return, you would have to agree to share the eggs collected from you in that cycle, with a woman who requires egg donation.


To be considered for the Egg Sharing Programme you must be less than 36 years of age with no personal or family history of inherited illnesses or abnormalities.  You will be seen by a doctor and a specialist nurse for assessment, and you will also have independent counselling.  The response to any previous fertility treatment you may have had, and the result of hormonal tests (basal serum FSH) will be reviewed before deciding on your suitability.

Your AMH reading should be within normal limits and a scan of your ovaries should show normal activity.  Your GP will be contacted, with your consent, for details about your medical and family history.  If you are adopted you will need to give details of your biological parents’ family history as far back as their grandparents.

Prior to treatment you will be screened for Hepatitis B and C, HIV (the AIDS virus), Syphilis, Cystic Fibrosis, Chromosomes, CMV, Rubella and Chlamydia antibodies.


Egg Sharing Arrangements:

(The woman donating eggs is referred to as the Egg Donor. The woman receiving eggs is referred to as the Recipient).


Note:  If both you and the recipient are having ICSI treatment, you will receive at least 3 eggs for ICSI injection.


Please note: your treatment can only go ahead if a matching patient who requires egg donation is ready to start her treatment.  This means that you may need to wait for a variable period of time until such a person is available.

For more information regarding our egg sharing programme and for details regarding our current schedule of fees, please contact the office team on 01482 382648 who will be happy to forward you further information.
