Shared Donor Egg Cycles are an immensely affordable option and a new outlook for Intended Parents.

What is a Shared Cycle?

A donor’s eggs are public to two (or three) recipients who divide the cost of shared donor egg cycle. For some, this is a lucrative way to meet the expenses of egg donation.

The Egg Donor is hormonally injected and egg retrieval is executed. The resultant eggs are split correspondingly between the two parties (or three) and the eggs are fertilized with the Intended Fathers sperm of each side.

The Intended Parents remain anonymous to each other both before and after the procedure.

Egg donors who take part in shared cycles typically have undergone a previous fruitful donor egg cycle. The recipients may be selected as primary and secondary recipients, which would determine who receives the extra egg if an odd number of eggs are produced. The primary recipient may also receive all of the eggs if there less than a certain threshold produced.

Recipients are designated by who first engaged with the donor, or the length of time the recipient has been waiting.
