how to prepare for ivf with donor eggs

Postby hally09 » Wed Jan 31, 2018 7:59 pm

Hello girls! Thanks to your comments I'm starting to change my attitude to the procedure. Now I feel more positive. I stopped thinking about relation with a baby from donor. Now I feel like I can move further. It's all thanks to you! I have some questions to you about the procedure. How you prepare to ivf with donor eggs? Is it the same as preparation to ivf with own eggs? How long it takes to prepare? I hope you'll share your experience! And also it would be great if you tell more about how you find donor, where did you have de ivf, how much you paid, etc. Let's have some chat!

I've already mentioned into my main thread that my feelings toward the procedure changed in a better way. Now I'm more into this. I still have some thoughts running into my mind. Despite them I feel more confident in using donor eggs. I found out about age limits and it kind of scared me. It turned out that each country has specific age limit for donor eggs recipient. This number varies from 45 to 50 years old. It suddenly crossed my mind that I have no time to waste! I will turn 45 soon. There is no time to think if this option is right for me or if I'm really ready for it. There is no time to waste on doubts and confusions. Now I'm fully on board! I talked to my hubby and he also thinks we should go for it. So I have a couple of questions for you! I really hope you will help me. What do you know about age limits for donor eggs recipients? I was looking through information on eggdonationfriends, but I've noticed that there is max age number missing in description about de of some countries. If you know what I mean. I will appreciate if you share your knowledge about this topic. And also I would like to know which criteria helped you to choose your clinic. I will be waiting for your answers! Again thank you so much for your comments.

First of all you should pay attention to your lifestyle. Take folic acid every day for at least 3 months before getting pregnant. This lowers the risk of some birth defects of the brain and spine of your child. Taking a pre-natal vitamin with folic acid is the best and easiest way to be sure you’re getting enough. You should stop smoking and drinking alcohol. Stay away from second-hand smoke as well after you become pregnant. You should eat healthy. Everything that goes into your body can nourish your uterine environment—and can boost your embryo implantation success. Avoid eating fish that are high in mercury, like swordfish and mackerel. Consider limiting caffeine intake.

Speaking about the procedure itself. As you know I'm also in search and I'm new to this whole de ivf thing. But I read lots of info lately. So I'd like to share with you what I know. Your treatment cycle and the donation cycle of your donor must be carefully synchronized, so that your uterus is prepared and ready to accept the embryo created using your donor’s eggs and your partner’s sperm. To do this, your doctor may first need to ‘switch off’ your usual monthly period and ovulation cycle. This is referred to as ‘down regulation,’ and is achieved using a combination of the contraceptive pill and hormonal medications. At the same time, your egg donor begins her own cycle of treatment, firstly undergoing ovarian stimulation, followed by egg collection and fertilization. As you are using donor eggs and not your own eggs, there is no ovarian stimulation needed for your IVF cycle. Instead the main thing is to ensure your uterus is ready to accept the embryo. This is achieved through drugs protocol unique to you, which encourages your uterus to grow its lining ready for the embryo to implant. You’ll undergo an ultrasound scan, where doctor measures the thickness of the lining to ensure it’s at the optimum level for implantation. You will be given detailed instructions of any continuing medications you need to take post embryo transfer, to ensure your body is hormonally supported throughout this crucial early stage as the embryo implants and grows.

Hi ladies
I am diagnosed with blocked fallopian tubes. One tube is completely blocked @other is not also working properly, due to some health issues, as per my doctor. But I feel like I have no health issue. I am completely fine & happy. Now all of sudden, I get to know about this, I & my husband very stressed because we both want a baby. Moreover, my family is desperately waiting for a good news, this makes me more stressed. My husband talked to many doctors and to his friends, one of his friend told him about egg donation &biotexcom clinic in Ukraine. I also heard about this clinic from my colleague. I am wondering, is egg donation & biotexcom are really the way? should I go with this? I am unable to think anything at this point. So, all the suggestions will greatly be appreciated. Thank you

Blocked tubes is not an indication for needing donor eggs.

Avoid Ukraine.
Avoid IVF and surrogacy in Ukraine. Ukrainian centers pay shills to post here under numerous sock accounts pretending to be patients in Ukraine. Centers using such deceptive advertising cannot be trusted and should be avoided.

I think you are very wise to think ahead! Because the carrying mom needs a strong uterus and overall physique, to prepare I took and am taking prenatal vitamins and eating mostly whole foods. I’m also more careful with my sugar intake. I just cut back on sugar, and actually didn't miss it much as I was doing it for baby. Try to get at least 8 hours sleep, drink water, and walk for exercise, basically a pregnancy diet. The iron is especially important for the uterus and your increased blood production during pregnancy. The IVF clinic will make sure you have all you need as they will also watch your cycle to be sure to put in embryos at the proper time. I wish you best of luck with your upcoming procedure! The shots and pills before your transfer are really not that bad, you just have to keep in mind what for you are doing it. Enjoy every bit of your journey. And know baby is all yours! No one will know it’s a donor egg if you don't tell, so just go for it.
