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.
Hello. How are you? I hope you're doing well. Your queries are all genuine. It's okay to be nervous before trying something new. I'm really sorry to hear about your failed IVF. I'm sure it's a very hard time for you. I hope things get better for you. Donor eggs do normally work out. This is because only the fertile donors are allowed to donate in most clinics, so there's a high chance it'll work out. The baby will definitely be yours. I know there are a few questions regarding the scientific procedure behind it. But do you not want a baby? Trust me it's a good process. Go with it! My best wishes are with 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.
You have probably heard about using the eggs of a younger woman? The success rates for donor egg ivf are really high, although the process is very expensive. I'm 45, almost 46, newly married, no children. I did conceive naturally in April. My Reproductive Endocrinologist was very surprised and monitored my blood levels weekly. We saw a heartbeat at 6 weeks. In a younger woman this would have meant a 90% chance of the pregnancy succeeding. At my age, however, the miscarriage rates are something like 60-70%. So conceiving is only part of the struggle. I miscarried at 9 and 1/2 weeks. It was devastating. My understanding is that the donor egg process is only available to women through age 50 or so in the U.S. But women could continue to conceive with donor eggs after that if a doctor would do the process. My husband and I are just starting to try again, but if it doesn't work after 6 months or if I have another miscarriage, we will seriously consider donor eggs. We already have an adoption in process. Anyway, best wishes! You are not the only one trying to beat back the clock!
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.
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.
