Third-Party Reproduction

hello? Anyone home?

I was curious if anyone still visits this board.  After unsuccessful three egg retrievals I am starting to research and consider IVF with an egg donor and was hoping to learn and share on this board.

  • I don't think anyone is on it. I've written quite a bit about DE stuff on here and am happy to answer any questions. Feel free to PM me.

  • Thank you for responding @peregrinefalconx and congratulations.  What a miracle that you will have a two little girls.  I'm just starting to learn about the DE process.  If we go that route we will likely use frozen eggs but I am researching both.

  • Yes, I am very excited to have girls and so close together. We did fresh cycle with a 1:3 (I shared eggs with 2 other women) and got pregnant on first go, which is fairly common (60% chance each time). Good luck! It is a somewhat mind boggling experience but you won't regret it.

  • Sadly it seems like this board is pretty dead :(  It looks like people post on the Infertility board with anything related to third-party, and I wish more would post here because the third-party topics are pretty specific and I personally would like to have group that focuses on this.  Maybe we should post on the Infertility Board to try to bring people over?  Hehe
  • Thanks for chiming in @stineandbean!  I started a thread on the IF board on DE IVF and while its not really active, people read it and its getting some traffic.  I continue to check this board now and again just to make sure I don't miss anything.  It would be nice to have some company while we take this next path to getting our family.
