IVF & assisted conceptions

We have recently found out that my DH has a sperm count of less than 1 million and decided to start enquiring about IVF. We have a fertility appointment booked for the end of the month with NHS, but I started enquiring about egg-sharing and IVF privately. I will need IVF with such a low count and the egg-sharing program will make it more affordable. Also, I will hopefully be able to make someone happy by donating my eggs and giving them a chance of having a baby.
I am currently working with Manchester Fertility and wondered if any of you had any experience dealing with this clinic?
I would appreciate your views, experiences and stories

Hi Juhere this is my first time on here. I have just found out my remaining tube is blocked so were considering IVF and egg donation. Can you tell me what health checks I'd have to do to become an egg donor? Lou x

Welcome to the forum!
I am not sure if you will be able to donate eggs if you have a blocked tube. Try to find out what your local clinic's requirements are. Can you not get free IVF on the NHS?
Here are just some of the requirements of my local clinic:
I had my first appointment and they did a blood test. They needed to find out my AMH levels as they need to be above a certain level. I have got some further appointments that include internal scans, full blood screen, counselling and also an appointment with the clinician. After that, they will try to match me to an egg receiver and start treatment. Think it all takes up to 3 months. IVF will be at a reduced cost due to the fact that I am donating eggs
Hope this helps xxx
