Hi All

So glad this thread has taken off!!
Just got my timetable for my last ivf using my eggs. We should be stim 24 Sept and ER is estimated to be 8th October. Really hope this is the one but I think I need to start my research in relation to donor eggs.

Ladies I need help to how to go about it? I have been googling donor eggs overseas and not getting very far. Any suggestions? Looking at the Asian countries due to price and I am Asian.

Thanks

Hi Unlucky!

Just thinking - can I call you something else to perhaps bring you a bit more luck? Would like to push positive karma towards you
Anyway, all fingers and toes crossed for your new cycle - that you won't have to move onto DE!

Yesterday I did a bit of googling (well, Hungary-specific) and I was thinking - depending on where you live - perhaps you wouldn't have to go as far as Asia? I am sure that when looking at donors, you can narrow in on what is ethnically closer to you (including blood groups etc.) and I am sure that there are Asian donors in countries outside of Asia? Or is Asia close to you (not sure whether you mean Asian living elsewhere or Asian living in Asia)? If Hungary were to be an option for you (I posted the link earlier to the clinic) perhaps you could enquire as to having an Asian donor? For example. The clinic seems to have a fantastic reputation in Europe...

AQ - huge congrats on the 2 stone badge keep going!!!

Bugs - sorry people have upset you stick with us ladies instead

Unlucky - good luck for you upcoming cycle.

Cveah - looks like we all may be considering DE!

Personally if I need DE I would probably look at Spain because I have olive/Mediterranean skin and most people think I'm Portuguese or Spanish so I would want to match my skin tone as much as possible. Also in UK the whole not guaranteed the quality of you donor would concern me.

Just had a lovely end to a lon journey for one of my friends. She had tried for 7yrs, 5 ivf cycles and 3 m/c so had a tough time. Anyway her eggs were crap and she has immune issues and they are not very advanced where she is so she did surrogacy overseas and she just flew out to meet her twin girls last Friday how lovely. I'm absolutely made up for her. Hope that cheers you all up xx

Bubumaci- If we have to move onto DE i shall check out that clinic as Hungary is not too far from the UK and looks beautiful too x

MrsE- I have same complexion as you and ppl assume i am spanish when i am in spain and if dh was white we would defo seek DE in Spain for that reason but as dh is black, our baby will favour him anyway so won't matter so much x

Bugs- I realise what you mean now... i think its disgusting that you were named in the thread and that these women we have supported have turned to be downright selfish and thoughless after going through IVF themselves! it seems a case of 'im alright jack' with some of them. No names mentioned. I won't sink to that level. Some of the preg ladies are lovely. Some need a reality check and also how would they like it if they had multiple fails and still were not pregnant and there was a thread all about pregnancy on a ASSISTED conception board?! talk about insensitive when there are TONS of pregnancy threads on PREGNANCY forums! xxx

Hi everyone, sorry about my rant it just really hit a nerve. AQ on some forums that thread would have been moved as it can be upsetting but the thing is I was not saying if your pregnant you're not allowed to post it's the pregnancy talk by all means update and I don't even mind the thread as it means I can pop in there and see how there doing when I choose too. It pushed me over the edge when my miscarriage was referred to as my troubles but any ways all is said and done now and I think I'll just stay here now xxxx

Anyone looking for donor eggs try the fertility friends site it is region specific so you can see other people's reviews on clinics. I think all of us are having a last attempt with OE so it will be nice to do it together xxxx

Bugs- I totally agree. Of course its nice to hear success stories, but there is a big difference between announcing your pregnancy and sharing tips and advice on IVF, compared to posting about pregnancy in detail, right down to what clothes etc you are going to buy... that is just cruel to do on a assisted conception forum when baby and bump has a huge pregnancy section for threads like this and no matter how you get pregnant, be it IVF or natural, pregnancy is pregnancy and such matters should only be discussed in detail on pregnancy forums. Anyway my rant is over now too. Onwards and upwards for us ladies in here it will soon be us pregnant and setting up a thread over on the pregnancy forums cos i dont know about you ladies, but as much as these threads have been my lifeline, i am more than ready to move onto pregnancy boards! lol. I would always pop back here to help others through this nightmare though xxx

Totally agree Africa.
I can't wait to move over to the pregnancy forum. I thought i would be well over there by now when i first posted.

I have had a lovely day with dh today. We went to bygone times and then had our lunch out. I went for a run for the first time in ages when i got back and is it wrong to say i really enjoyed it!!! I have been tying to work out why my egg quality is so bad. None of my family have ever had problems and i have always been fit and healthy, although went through puberty late as i was tiny so wondered if that could have caused it???

Oh well, i can't change it. I will love my baby whatever x x x x x

MrsE- Yes sorry meant to say what a lovely story about your friend x

Cvaeh- I don't think going through puberty late made a difference as i was only 12 when i did and look at me... just nature going wrong and sadly it had to happen to us we will get there, even if its not the way we thought x

Cveah - I agree with AQ I think it's just bad luck. I initially thought it was cos of my thyroid which I got at early age of 18yrs old but then there are others in same or worse boat than me that don't have that issue. It's just something we will never know I guess. But I I have a gentoo daughter I will be telling her to freeze her eggs at an early age just incase it's genetic! My mum took 3 yrs to get pregnant naturally aged 28 cos ivf didn't exist then so who knows my mum could have had the same problem.

Feeling knackered expecting the witch sun/Mon which is never good! Stupid I know but I always think even for just a second perhaps this'd nth it may work - how insane am I!?! Ha, ha xx
