Egg sharing - screening and consent of egg sharers

The Private Healthcare UK guide to infertility treatment contains articles on infertility and IVF treatment which are aimed at improving your knowledge of treatments for infertility, their benefits and potential risks.


In this section


Screening and consent of Egg-Sharers

Prior to acceptance as an Egg-Sharer, you are required to complete initial screening test and consent forms.  


Tests required include:

HIV (repeated 6-monthly)

CMV (Both IgG and IgM)

Hepatitis B & C (repeated 6-monthly)


Cervical swab for chlamydia

Chromosomal analysis

High vaginal swab

Cystic fibrosis (saliva sample)

Sickle Cell





These tests may be undertaken by your GP. Patients should be aware of the possibility that one or more of these tests may reveal a previously unsuspected condition or infection. It is also the Egg-Sharer’s responsibility to inform the clinic of the possibility of any genetic or inheritable disease present in their immediate family. Failure to do so is a legal offence.


These tests must be carried out once before being accepted into the Egg-Sharing Programme.   HIV must be repeated again during the treatment cycle. These tests must be repeated at the start of any treatment cycle in which you are planning to donate eggs.
