share your experience using donor eggs Rss

Hey there. I'm really sorry to hear about your problem. Don't lose faith, though! A new clinic and donor eggs, there's a very good chance it works out this time! I'd suggest you keep hoping but be prepared for every outcome. There are always more methods that you could try, for example, surrogacy. I do hope this works out for you, good luck!
Hi there. I am really sorry to hear about your problem. I hope you are doing okay. Iknow it must be really hard for you. It's never really easy. I have been through it. I was devastated. However, you seem to be very strong. I like that you went with 6 IVFs. Don't lose hope yet. Things will work. Maybe think about surrogacy. I wish you good luck. Take care. Hoping to hear more soon. Love and prayers.
Koralily, I know the struggle is real. I have been TTC for nearly 9 years. The days passed into months then into years. the wait and hope-driven me. Infertility journey is terrible and the treatments take a lot of patience. I have had three IVF cycle which failed terribly, The devastation took my sanity. Later on, I developed low ovarian reserve. Which nearly made my chances of conceiving naturally to 5%. After a lot of research, and learning from other infertile couples, The surrogates inspired me in a lot of ways, which later turned me into a passionate intended parent. I and my husband are anxiously looking forward to starting our surrogacy journey. However, I may have to go for donor eggs. But we will try with our own eggs to try our luck. As it gets only one decent egg. However, donor eggs will work too. My clinic gets me a perfect match as a surrogate according to our preferences. You can weigh your options, and decide a good fertility clinic for surrogacy. I believe it's all about upbringing, the child needs the one who can love and care. Good luck!!
Hi! I hope you will be fine.
I really become sad after reading your case. Don’t be so upset. It’s a natural system of the world. You are a strong girl, how you can lose hope. You should try again and again till you succeed. It’s better to try than giving up. The only step to be successful is to think positive. Don’t lose hope.
And no matter if he/she will not look like you. The only thing that matters is the training that a mother gives to his child. My cousin went through this process. They used donor eggs. Now they have a baby. Her wife looks happy with him.
I think you should use donor eggs. People do this for their children.
It may good for you.
All my sympathies are with you.
Take care.
Bye
Hey! Your words felt deep inside. I mean 6 IVF. It's just so hectic and tough at the same time. This is not that easy to have so many failures. This procedure is itself a costly one. And the thing that must be important that you want a baby. That's it. Why you are worried about the procedure. Or the egg. Of where do they come from. Your baby would be yours. Why would your baby hate you? You have gone through so much just to have a family. Isn't that enough?
I would suggest you go with donor eggs. If that is going to work for you.
Dear things have to be taken positively. Behind every dark wall there is light. You don't have to feel very bad. If your eggs are not good then the donor eggs can be really great for you. Don't worry about the resemblance. Sometime in the real parents the child gets nothing from the parents. Just think what you are getting after such long wait.

Hey! I agree with your thoughts. You have strong thoughts about the surrogacy procedure. Which I believe would be enough to inspire many to go for this procedure. At times even I had many questions about surrogacy procedure. But then I knew about the surrogates. Their lives their intentions. And I just start loving the concept of surrogacy. These beautiful women make this procedure even more beautiful. And yes I never depend on who carry your child. It all depends on the upbringing. I am happy to hear all these thoughts.
Hey. I don't have any experience here but a friend does! She had her baby using donor eggs. She only had two embryos of her own but they didn't work. So she had to get her procedure done with donor eggs. Her clinic provided this to her. She now has a very beautiful boy. He sure has great genes.

I am using a donor egg for my process. The main reason for that is that I have a poor ovarian reserve. The experience was great! In fact, the whole process was really new for me. I think the credit goes to the clinic. There communication services and technology usage really impressed me. When the time came where we had to choose a clinic we were the access to their donor egg database. I was astonished to see how they have over 100 plus donors. I then along with my husband started to choose the most suitable one for us. The database included all the information regarding the donor which really helped us. Once we had chosen the donor the clinic started the process. The sperm was also analyzed to ensure that it was of good quality. After this entire process, the procedure of embryo began. Good luck to you. If you need any help do let me know.

Our clinic has a special technique. Each donor is fixed in the photo and video with the help of special 3D technology. You're able to see a woman from all sides. Zooming in and out the image. On the basis of this material, an anthropometric and physiognomic portrait of the woman is created. Then her basic characteristics are digitized. After receiving the same data about the future father they can be superimposed on each other. This helps to predict the possible appearance of a child. In addition, the other data, such as the IQ of the donor, education, abilities, inclinations and state of health down to small details like dental health, temperament and character traits are also calculated! The history of the donor's family is also explored.Their donor/surrogate database is huge. This makes the choice quite a hard thing to do 'cause you always find sth attractive for you in every other donor. Of course the dr has the last word as for the donor confirmation. For us this choice coinsided.
6 IVF failures is too much. Lots of reasons could be considered here. PGD is used to screen for single-gene disorders. Or for chromosomal translocations, where parts of chromosomes are rearranged. PGD is necessary when a patient is concerned about specific diseases such as: tay sachs, cystic fibrosis, fragile X and other severe genetic disorders. It will also identify aneuploidy. Have you ever discussed with your dr this option?
Dropping in. Im so so sorry that you are going through this journey as the rest of lovelies here are. I 100% feel your feelings are normal for any person in the situation like this. It gets harder as time passes to see everyone around you pregnant. I too felt as though wherever I go, someone is pregnant. Or there are tons of beautiful baby bellies around! And not one of them is mine =( I want to reassure you and let you know that you are not alone in this journey. There are so many of bravies walking the same path. So, please, lean on us when you need. As for God, no one can tell you what to feel, what to do, or what to believe. All I know is I want to believe for myself, that Lord has a plan. And He is working on my perfect miracle baby. Maybe it will take a bit longer than every one else. But may Lord prepare us for something so incredible that we might need rest for now. I can only hope this is the case. I don't judge you for being angry or whatever. This journey is terrible. It tests who you are as a person, as a wife, as a friend etc. I hope you find some comfort in my message. We are all with you and here to lend an ear. Hugs x
