What is egg sharing?

Learn more about a procedure that impacts two fertility journeys. 

Egg sharing is a process that brings two parties who are facing their own fertility struggles together.


The first is an individual who is undergoing IVF treatment and is known as the sharer. The other is an individual who is unable to produce their own eggs and is known as the recipient.


Egg sharing involves the individual undergoing the IVF cycle to share their eggs with someone hoping to undergo their own treatment cycle (a full treatment cycle, i.e. all the monitoring, tests and procedures required in a full episode of treatment) but is unable to produce their own.


The sharer can then continue their IVF treatment at a significantly lower price as a result of choosing to share their eggs while the recipient receives the eggs they need to undertake their own treatment cycle (a full treatment cycle, i.e. all the monitoring, tests and procedures required in a full episode of treatment).

I Trust Fertility - Egg sharing

Our process

The egg sharing process

Before choosing to share your eggs, we recommend taking the time to analyse all outcomes of your decision in both the short and long term.


This is a big decision that could change your life as well as someone else’s life, and we want to help you make an informed decision, every step of the way.


At itrust fertility, we adhere to the criteria established by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority.


Here’s our process: 

First, as it is with all of our procedures, an initial consultation will be carried out with a fertility specialist.

Blood tests will be taken for a thorough assessment of any potential egg sharer’s health. It is only after the results of the consultation and tests that you will be approved as an egg sharer.

All those opting to share their eggs must be 35 years old or younger.

Choosing any fertility treatment option should not be taken lightly, but this option, in particular, can raise several ethical and legal questions for both parties to the process.


This is why we make counselling a condition prior to starting it.

What you need to know

Stay informed with the answers to your questions

Depending on your circumstances, the questions you have before choosing this procedure will differ, but here are the answers to the most common questions you may have at this time.

What you need to know

Stay informed with the answers to your questions

How do I know if I’m eligible to share my eggs?

At itrust fertility, we will only clear you for the process if you meet all the criteria laid out by the HFEA and once you’ve completed all the necessary consultations and tests. 

How many eggs will be collected for the sharing process?

It’s impossible to predict the exact number of eggs that can be collected from an individual. 


During any IVF cycle, however, we attempt to collect as many high-quality eggs as possible, which can number between 10 and 15 or higher. 


Check with your clinic if there is a minimum number of eggs required to proceed with sharing your eggs.

What happens if I change my mind?

No decision regarding your fertility is an easy decision to make. You have complete authority to change your mind during any part of the process right up until your egg is used to create an embryo ready to be transplanted in your receiver.


Talk to a fertility specialist if you are having any doubts.

Can I meet my receiver or sharer?

You will not be able to meet your receiver or sharer in person or find out any identifying information about them.


If any children are conceived as a result of the eggs you shared, however, you can choose to be informed by your clinic.
