Donor Diva: Let's Talk Egg Donation

We started our TTC journey in our mid 20s. I was one of “those” who thought it would be easy to get pregnant.

When we went for our fertility work-up, I found out I had high FSH, and my fertility doctor told me I had premature ovarian failure (POF). He also said our only way to have a family was to use donor egg.

It took me over a year, two in vitro fertilizations (IVFs) with my eggs and lots of tears to finally make the decision to move on. In February 2010 we welcomed our son via egg donation. Ant is now the center of our world.

After making the decision to use donor eggs, I realized how important it is for people to understand egg donation. It has become my mission to promote egg donation as a great choice for those who need it.

If you would like to know about my journey through motherhood, you can follow me on my personal blog Donor Diva: Mother via Egg Donation.

Navigating infertility is hard enough, but it is even harder when you feel like you can’t trust the people who are helping you.

Last week the news broke on the "baby-selling ring." Theresa Erickson and Hilary Neiman are (or were) respected surrogacy/adoption lawyers. What made them want to risk their good names to sell babies?

Right after Ant was born was when I had the strongest desire to have another child. I am going to chalk that up to hormones (and thinking maybe he was our only child.) After we paid our first storage fee on our frozen embryo (‘totsicle’) I knew I wasn’t yet ready to have another.

When given the diagnosis of premature ovarian failure (POF), it is devastating. I will never forget the day that I first heard the words: “Your FSH is high.” I could tell you exactly where I was and what I did that day. It is permanently etched in my mind.
