    Hi! I think I have a bad ovarian reserve. I think it’s the main reason why my hubby and I are still childless. I did got pregnant several times naturally. Both times, I had a miscarriage after the 5-7th weeks of pregnancy. My gyny recommended us an IVF. They took 5 eggs out of me, but none of them were good enough to be fertilized and transferred into my uterus. The fertility specialist who was in charge of our program told us the reason why we can’t conceive may be my bad ovarian reserve. She advises us egg donation. Her words were like a blow for me. I’m quite a healthy woman and I never thought that I would have to come over such things. However, I did have bad oocytes. Now, I have to decide what to do further. My hubby says that we should try ED. He considers DE IVF to be the best choice for us. I quite understand him. He’s really sick and tired of all these. However, I think I’m not ready to get pregnant with the help of a donor egg. Is there anybody here who has the same fertility issue? How did you manage to conceive? Did you use DE IVF or managed to conceive naturally?
    P.S. Nearly a month ago, both my hubby and I visited one fertility clinic. We travelled abroad. The clinic seemed to be quite reputable. We found loads of positive feedbacks about it on various fertility forums. However, we were a little bit puzzled by the things we found there. Firstly, the clinic turned to be rather small. When we entered it, we were impressed by the number of people we saw there. The waiting room was overcrowded. We had to wait nearly two hours before the RE was ready to meet us. I quite liked the doctor. I think we would deal with her. But those long lines do make us extremely tired. How do you think: should we trust the clinic with long lines or not?

    Hi, there! Firstly, I’m really sorry to hear about your struggles of getting pregnant. I’m in the same boat like you. My trouble is a low ovarian reserve. I was diagnosed with the symptoms of early menopause nearly a year ago, and like you, I need DE IVF to get pregnant. My hubby and I are also looking for an appropriate clinic. We take into consideration such things as success rates, price and the list of services they provide. You may also use these criteria to find an appropriate clinic.

    Hi, Jumper! Thanks for your answer. The thing is we quite liked the egg donation package this clinic offers us. They don’t charge much and it’s really great. They offer us oocytes of 18-25 year old women. According to the contract, the clinic takes all responsibilities for finding a woman who would suit us as an egg donor. They have to test her health to make sure that she’s healthy enough to donate her eggs. They also have to check her heredity to find out whether her parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles are free from any hereditary issues. These are the things we really liked about the clinic.

    I think you should be very cautious while opting egg donation, hun. Though this procedure may give you a nice chance to become a mum, the baby won’t be totally yours. He may resemble your hubby, but he might not resemble you. Are you ready for this? In addition, I think it’s quite difficult to find a woman who would be like you. Each person is a unique one. Even twins differ in some way…

    I quite understand what you mean, hun. But DE IVF may be my only chance to conceive. There are quite a lot of women with DOR who do manage to conceive. However, I’m not among them. We do continue to ttc naturally, but I’m not pregnant yet. Even if we opt DE IVF, I will be extremely grateful to woman who will share her eggs with me. I will love this child with all my heart.
    P.S. The clinic’s reps offer us an opportunity to choose an egg by ourselves. If we sign up a contract with them, we’ll be able to enter their database and choose egg donors by ourselves.
