Has the internet helped?

New School PhD Candidate interested in the following:

What effect does the Internet have on women and assisted reproductive technology? Has the growth of the Internet given women more choices in reproductive medicine?

If anyone has donated eggs or obtained eggs through the Internet, I would be grateful if you would be willing to share your experience.

Hi, without the internet I would not have heard of the clinic where I am going to have treatment with donor eggs. I communicate with them via email as I am in the UK and they are in Spain. I first heard of them through this site which has been the most incredible source of information and suuport through my 6 failed treatments.
So, yes, the internet has most definitely helped!
Me & DH both 41
ICSI #1 - abandoned
