egg donors

;( Hi, please, please help me. After waiting 18 months for a suitable donor, I finally got pregnant but unfortunately miscarried at 8 weeks. I feel so sad and just don't know how long I'll have to wait for another donor. Can anyone give me any hope? This was my 6th assisted conception attempt ( 3 IUI, 2 IVF and this one using the donor (shared) eggs) Feel I was really unlucky as my egg sharer could only let me have three and two didn't defrost so ended up with only one! Already started saving up for the next go but it's getting really hard.

RE: egg donors


I'm really sorry for your loss Mel. I can't answer your specific question but why don't you post your thread to the egg-donation / egg-sharing forum and hopefully somebody on there will.

Have you looked into egg-sharing? I think it's a great way to help two couples out and will hopefully be looking into it myself in a few months.

Do you think it might do you good to have a little rest from things too? You need to be ready both emotionally and physically and you really need to look after yourself. You need time to come to terms with things and let head get straight.

Please don't keep things bottled and we're all here to help eachother through it.

Take care Hun XXX

Hi Mel

welcome to the site.

very sorry to read of your m/c. it is such a horrid cruel thing to happen after so long waiting. but you are in a great place here, there is lots of support for you.

i'm afraid I can't help answer how long your wait will be :(
What is the egg-sharing/donation programme like in Sheffield? Can you talk to your clinic about the level of prospective donors in your area?

i do feel for you hun.. [zx127] hopefully being here now will help make the time easier
