IVF Egg Sharing – Definition, Cost and Application Process

Aug 25, 2020

Each fifth couples have difficulties with conception. In 2020 about 1000000 babies were born using donated eggs, sperm, or embryos. Egg donation offers hope for some infertile people to have children of their own. However, IVF programs are not that affordable for most of the couples. Therefore, they have to collect a lot of money and spend much effort for their first program. Luckily, there is a way to cut the IVF cost twice via IVF egg sharing.

What Is IVF Egg Sharing

Egg sharing is the type of IVF when several women receive eggs from the same oocyte donor. It can be a woman who donates her eggs to lower her IVF cost or a donor who shares her oocyte with two different recipients. 

If a woman decides to share her oocytes, a clinic can give her a discount for the IVF procedure. However, if there are no shared eggs at the clinic, one can opt for IVF egg sharing programs and pick one donor for two different recipients. Therefore, the donor gets full rewards and both couples receive half of the oocytes after egg retrieval.

IVF Egg Sharing Cost

Sharing one egg donor with another couple can help you save up to 50% of the program cost.  In Moscow, the cost of shared egg retrieval is as low as $1435, and the donor compensation starts from $2975.
