You are dealing with serious fertility issues. You thought you just needed more time. You tried to relax. You used an ovulation calendar to track the times you would be most fertile. The problem is your menstrual cycles are very irregular. You have gone months at a time without a period. Testing from the fertility specialist traced the problem to your lack of egg production. You may think adoption is your only option, but there is another route you could take to conceive. Egg donation could be the answer for you.
An Egg Donor Could Help You to Have the Family You Want
Many women choose to donate their eggs to help patients like you to become a mother. They are typically in their early 20’s to early 30’s, allowing doctors to harvest eggs at a point in their lives when they are most fertile. Every donor goes through a careful screening process to ensure that the woman is healthy. You will be provided with basic information about your donor. You can choose an anonymous donor or you can choose someone who is willing to share their identify. If you go this route to become pregnant, the egg from a donor will be combined with your husband’s sperm to create an embryo.
You will go through a prep period in which you will take special medication to prepare the lining of your uterus for conception. When the time is right, the embryo will be inserted into your uterus through in vitro fertilization. At that point, you will need to sit back and wait to see if implantation will occur. In most cases, the procedure is successful.
Why Choose Egg Donation?
While it is true that you will be using someone else’s egg if you have an egg donor, your husband will still play an important role in conception. You will be able to experience the wonder of pregnancy and childbirth. You will create a bond that can’t be broken when you carry your own child. You will be able to travel the complete journey from conception to delivery if you choose this option. Adoption is an amazing experience as well, but you don’t get to carry the baby. Egg donation allows you to be the one to bring your baby into this world.
