Going through gender re-assignment and need to preserve fertility

Jasmine is going through gender reassignment and wanted to know how to preserve her fertility

She explained to one of our team members over the phone that she was planning to go through a gender reassignment and wanted to know what options she had if she wanted to have a child in the future.

Jasmine could go through the sperm freezing process via the NHS route but didn’t want to wait any longer to start her gender reassignment process and so she decided to see us privately.

After discussing with one of our doctors at her initial consultation regarding her history and future plans, Jasmine met our nursing team which helped her to complete all the relevant consent forms and screenings which allowed her to proceed with the sperm freeze process.

Jasmine visited the clinic a few times to supply a good number of sperm samples to allow our laboratory team to freeze enough sperm for the future.

Jasmine then felt happy to proceed with her most anticipated journey of configuring her identity

Have you ever thought of egg sharing for no cost IVF treatment

Egg sharing anonymously brings together women who need IVF treatment for different reasons. One woman will potentially have the ability to make plenty of eggs during her own IVF treatment while the other is waiting for the precious gift of donated eggs to fulfil her dream of a baby.

It gives women, who generously wish to donate eggs, the opportunity to help another woman and in return helps towards funding her much-needed IVF treatment.

Can anyone become an egg share donor?

Unfortunately not. Egg sharers are donating eggs to another woman and there are strict criteria in place in order to become an egg donor.
