At my first intake, I was discouraged from trying to conceive and told that I only have a .5% chance of conceiving at my age. I understand that doctors need to tell patients about their odds, but the entire experience was so discouraging. I did conceive within a year (in spite of the low chance they gave me), although unfortunately I lost this pregnancy to a miscarriage. This was my third miscarriage. I was told my only options are using donor eggs, which costs either around $50,000 for live eggs or $25,000 for frozen eggs, or the embryo program, which was the only option I could afford. I was also specifically told I could have an input on the choice of embryo. A day later, I received a call from one of the donor program nurses. She told me that since I already had one child, I would categorically not be able to receive an embryo. When questioned about why this differed from what I was previously told she said, well I could actually be put on the list, but she has not seen anybody in my position ever actually receiving an embryo. This is absolutely heart wrenching for me to have gotten my hopes up so high and then be let down like this. I don't think the fact that one side of the program doesn't know what the other side is doing is an excuse. You are dealing with people's hopes for a future child here, and you better get your information straight. The experience was completely crushing, almost like a fourth miscarriage - I do not have $25,000 at my disposal, as I am sure most in my position wouldn't have. Yes, I am a happy mother of one child, thank God, but I also already suffered three miscarriages, does that not make any difference at all to get on their list? What's more, the demeanor she told me this crushing information with was completely cold and detached. You'd think if someone worked in this field (which they must have chosen at some point) they'd have a bit more empathy for people who desire nothing else than to be parents again.
