Helping a Family through Egg Donation: An Egg Donor Shares Her Story,  May 31, 2012

Some women, due to age or physical reasons, cannot produce their own viable eggs.

Amanda (not her real name) is a 27-year-old Georgia woman who chose to become an egg donor after watching friends and family go through the sorrow of infertility. “A friend of mine went through IVF treatment three times,” Amanda says. “And my aunt was never able to have children of her own.

Atlanta Fertility Doctor, Fertility Clinic: How to Find One

Is it time for you to find an Atlanta fertility doctor or see which Atlanta fertility clinic makes you feel most comfortable? It probably is if you are over 35 and have been trying to conceive for six months or more — or under 35 and have been trying for a year or more.

IVF Study: Three Embryos Is Too Many

Two may be better than one for older mothers

Women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) who receive three or more embryos have no better odds than those how received two, according to a new study published in the journal Lancet. In addition, there is a greater chance of multiple births, which create more risk for the mother and for the child(ren).

The researchers also say the decision to transfer one or two embryos should be based on prognostic indicators, such as age, and they recommend that fertility doctors seeing a new couple with infertility should move older women to IVF sooner rather than later.

Empty Follicle Syndrome (EFS) is a rare-occurring condition where no eggs are retrieved during an IVF procedure, despite the ovaries having many potential follicles. Out of all women diagnosed with infertility, only a fraction will not be able to conceive using their own eggs. Having EFS meant Holly was part of that small percentage. Holly and her husband Ryan contacted an egg donation agency and began their search for “the one.” After sorting through numerous candidates, Holly and Ryan chose the donor they call “Angel.”
