Starting my 4th egg donation cycle

I've been busy with work, school, and buying a condo these last two weeks but I wanted to report that I just got the monitoring orders and legal agreement for my next cycle, my fourth. The IP's are based in Asia and the retrieval will take place at a clinic at the West Coast. The monitoring will be done in my hometown though, so I only travel for the retrieval.

I can't believe this is going to be my third cycle this year. I planned to do one in 2009 but my agency eagerly kept lining up new ones with very little time between the cycles until I told them I didn't feel confortable committing to cycles that would take place more than 8 months down the road. I would hate to disappoint an IP couple if I had to cancel an agreement because of a new job or other life changes, and I also can't predict whether my body would still want to do this after so many times. My general policy is not to sign the legal agreement for a new cycle until the previous cycle is successfully completed. So no more cycles lined up after this one, for the moment being.

However, I am very excited about my next cycle and will be posting about it here.

  1. Hey there,
    I just happened upon your blog, and I wanted to thank you for writing it! My husband and I are moving toward donor IVF, and we are wrestling with the discomfort and risks would could be inflicting on someone else -- particularly someone who is facing financial hardship. Anyway, it's very helpful to get to see the different perspectives. Good luck with your next cycle!

  8. Thank you for letting the internet live vicariously through you. While relatively common, egg donation is not very well understood by most, but with more woman candidly discussing their experiences like you are here, it will eventually become better understood and accepted. It is because of women like you that unselfishly give that so many couples have beautiful children when they otherwise could not. Thank you thank you thank you.

  16. Donating eggs to those in need is always a good deed for the needy ones. If you have a good count and you think you and your body can do it then you should do it without any hesitation. You should do it as much as you can.

  18. While there may be minimum pain and sensitivity involved during the transfer of ova from the egg donors to the recipients, but it does not really change the fact that it gives women another chance to give birth to a child of their own in a controlled and medically-approved way.
