Anyone gone through egg donation? HELP!

Post by higgins237 » Fri May 16, 2008 6:06 pm

Could anyone tell me of any donor agencies in Mi? Just went through our 2nd IVF journey which we again had a failed outcome. For me, it's my eggs. I have diminished ovarian reserve and my eggs just don't cooperate. We never made it to transfer stage. I am of course devastated and get seem to begin to understand why. My emotions are a mess and I can't even begin to know what to do next. Our Dr said egg donation and/or adoption are our only choices. I don't know what to do. We don't have any children and I have never been pregnant so this is very hard. All I've ever wanted is to be a mom. Anyone gone through egg donation and could you tell me how to come to grips with the fact I will never have a biological child?

Hi Higgins,
Here is a little bit of light at the end of your tunnel --
Just wanted to let you know that in the "General Forum" there is a thread called "Egg heads" -- there you will find lots of support and advice about egg donation from women either going through or who have been through the process.

We are also in a similar situation, trying to decide if egg donation is the next step, or adoption. I can only say that after lots of soul searching, my DH and came to the realization that we'd really like to be parents to a child, even if in the end this child wasn't our biological child -- Everyone has to find a place that they are comfortable with. If either of these options don't work out for us in the end, we'll then have to deal with the idea of being a childless couple and we just aren't ready for that.

Hope the information helps you and I wish you lots of luck on your journey to become parents.

xx Amy

Higgins237, we too had a failed IVF cycle because my egg quality is poor due to age (37) and chemo that I went through for cancer several years ago. I am a model and actress and graduated with a 4.0 gpa, so the thought of donor eggs was horrible, but once I put my ego aside and realized that raising a baby no matter what DNA it came from was what was most important. I am now 6 1/2 weeks pregnant with twins- we saw both heartbeats yesterday. There is also stuff written about how genes have choices and being in your body, supplying the embryos with your blood can make a difference in what choices are made.. this is where the connection to the mother comes in. I hope this can help you with your decision. I cried buckets but once I made that decision, I have never once looked back. Best of luck and baby dust to you.

Hi Jen,
I'm sorry to hear about your failed IVF. But donor eggs are such a blessing! I am now preg (11w5d) with donor eggs. I've had multiple failed IUI's and IVFs.
From my side, there are some non-profit public organization like Happy Family(Surrogacy) and IVF consultant reproductive technologies, medical, legal, ethical and psychological aspects. I hope that helps you somewhat. This board is full of great gals that are very supportive and helpful!
