Should egg sharing be allowed or is it exploitation?
Question: ICMR has given guidelines that when 7 eggs are available for each, sharing should be allowed. However, it is not just the quantity of eggs which decides the outcome but also the quality. Does it mean that it is ICSI for all in egg sharing to omit GV and MI oocytes from the count of 7?

I really feel egg sharing should not be done. The couple who has exhausted a good portion of their income and the female partner who has gone through multiple injections and monitoring should get the advantage of all her eggs. This is because each oocyte may not be mature and hence, may not fertilize. Once oocyte banks are available this system is not required.
