Hello everyone. A little background on my situation. I am 43 and have DOR. So fiancé and I are looking at donor eggs, per RE recommendation. Here’s where the story comes in – my sister is 39 and in basically same situation. Her FSH & AMH are a little better, but not much. She just tried an IVF cycle and only ended up with 1 follicle maturing, so switched to IUI, since she’d already taken all the meds. She is also going down the donor egg path.
I'm looking for opinions on the idea of using the same donor, with a shared donor program. Is this too weird? A pro is that the cousins would have ½ familial DNA, so would have that extra “bond”. Con – are they half siblings?
She lives in CO and her RE won’t do shared programs, I’m in PA and my RE does have shared programs. I’m going into RE on Friday and plan to ask all kinds of questions about our situation – but wanted to get some feedback from you ladies. What would you do in our situation? Thank you for your time!
