Success Stories With Donor Eggs?

Postby Adrianne72 » Fri Dec 04, 2015 12:37 pm

Hello everyone! My husband and I are just beginning our journey to use an egg donor with IVF and I'm desperately seeking some success stories from the ladies who have been successful using them. I just turned 43 and my hubby is 38. We have been diagnosed as having secondary unexplained infertility as I have one son (24) from a previous relationship. My hubby has no children (but has healthy swimmers) and we would love a child together, but it just doesn't seem to be in the cards for us based on my age now. So, here we are. We will be seeing a specialist in February and I would love to hear about everyone's experiences. Please do share with me. I'm a bit of a nervous wreck. Were you successful on the first try? How many embryos did you transfer? Advice? I feel like I need to know everything and I know nothing right now. *big grins Also, if you wouldn't mind sharing what your overall cost was? We are paying everything OOP, unfortunately, so we need to know how much we will have to save. It's so unfair that we have to pay for something that is free for so many people. *sigh

Thank you so much in advance. I look forward to hearing your stories and advice!
TTC with donor eggs!

Well I can't give you any success story just yet( hopefully soon) we just did our first transfer with donor eggs and it was negative :( thankfully we have 6 more frozen blastocysts for the next try. The donor process for us wasn't terrible just really expensive. We also did everything out of pocket and are currently at $49k. We chose a repeat donor for many reasons and she harvested good results. I just wish i didn't have such huge expectations, everyone says that donor eggs are almost a sure thing! Silly me, nothing is a sure thing:) the money will be well worth it if this works but I'll have a things to work through if it doesn't for $49k!!!!!

Hello! I know this thread is old and the original poster may have found all of the information she was looking for but in case someone else comes across it i would recommend looking at fertilityclinicsabroad com and eggdonationfriends com Websites include tons of stats (success rates, prices, expected treatment time, clinics guarantees etc), easily accessible reports on best fertility clinics, complete guide on de route and sometimes discounted offers. I hope it will be useful xx
