jbwz — The Bump

jbwz Newbie

Hi, Just joining and figuring out how to use the board. So happy a place like this exists!  I am 41, TTC for 3 years. After about a year of IVF (mainly many cycles of medication with only one unsuccessful egg retrieval), I was recently told that an egg donor would be my best option and that I had a very low chance of conceiving without one.  I always knew a donation might be our last hope, but I thought I'd at least have a few more cycles to try without receiving such depressing news. Better to know before going through more months of shots, but I'm taking the news really hard and am struggling so much emotionally.  Has anyone been through this that can offer some advice? I have been seeking support groups for infertility in NYC but can't seem to find any.  Thank you!  Julie
