here i go again
i read your post few times, so questions are generated:
I can't speak to your question about the Ukraine because I didn't get our donor from there. Our ED was from Czech and it was a wonderful experience. We got to select the donor from a large number of traits - physical, educational, as well as hobbies.
...kelly, i dont want to be suspecios in all these procedures, but many things flew through my brain.
i.e, you said that you select donor from a large numbers....
i am not sure about this. prague is a small town, litle bit more than 1,2 mil. people, and whole republic 10 mil.
people are conservative, so i dont think that their base is such a big so you can chose one of few who has same blod type like you or your husband, eye colour, education, hobbies etc. really you can not check any of these things except blood type. all you have is doctors word! thats why i think that all these negotiation, choosing smallest details etc are just ... words fly.
of course, their base is i.e. maybe 50-100 girls so they can not satisfy such number of pairs. they are not golden fish.
that is why i want to pay more to get really that i want. finally, you have god's role to create further family, to chose what you want and make a significant part in future. kill me if i am wrong!
ive been contacted from some agency in ukraine and they gave me donors base so i could choose girl. i thought it is legal. after i contact other clinic, ive been told that is not legal at all. so it means that there are realy possibility to make really everything that you have on mind!
to be honest, this agency doesnt have much ED to chose. mostly are ok, but few of them are realy the last one i will chose at all!. thats why this doubt is created in my mind...
... The donor we chose had previous success where the two women she donated to prior to us got pregnant. They had stats on the number of eggs she produced as well as the number that fertilized.
... how do you know these details?
In our case, the donor was 28 years old, and had two successful donor rounds prior to our case. During our round, she produced 16 eggs, 12 fertilized and we transferred 3 very good blasts. We got pregnant on our first round with twins.
Prior to our donor cycle, we had undergone 11 IVF rounds (2 cancelled, 2 chemical pregnancies, and 7 BFN) so we were thrilled at our result. At the time they told me that non of the embryos were top quality which is what they decide upon for freezing - in hindsight I would have asked them to freeze any that made it to day 6. Easier to know after the fact.
Hope that information helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
... ough, i didnt get it! you have more frozen embrios?
please reply when you will be able to do so. i dont know what to do. my had is like a drum.
sorry for my language, but i think that it was clear...
