    Default donor egg in exchange for donor sperm

    Hi all,
    My situation is we've tried ivf
    icsi, had 1 success DD4 We now have done 7 attempts. We are still desperate to have a sibling for our girl and to complete our dreams.
    Has anyone contemplated donating there eggs in return for sperm to (DIY) from a couple. Do you think there would be many couples willing to exchange?

    renaeshep- good luck in your search hon. I think you would have a good chance of finding someone for this. I would jump at it if i had a partner. Unfortunately single and using donor sperm myself from clinic. I understand the cost becomes overwhelming after so many cycles.

    In the UK they do this and also egg share - meaning 2 couples use the same egg donor at the same time ( split the eggs between the 2 couples i mean).

    I myself dont think its a crazy idea as long as everyone is on the same page.

    i dont need donor eggs but maybe my husband can help you

    The tricky thing with this is you would need to donate your eggs before attempting any home insems yourself.
    You would have to be very sure about this before going ahead.
    You would also need to think about if your going to reveal to the clinic if you are making this 'swap' as they then to look down upon a sperm and egg swap because of the risk of one of the couples not being successful.

    However by doing DIY or home insems this is one way around having to tell the clinic IYKWIM!

    also you would most likely benefit from someone in the same state as you as it could take a while doing DIY
