Donor Egg IVF after Premature Ovarian Failure

Just wondering if there are any success stories with anyone having being diagnosed POF (premature Ovarian failure) and then went ahead with IVF with donor egg?

Any information on the above would help.

Thank you

I am quite sure that the IVF drugs can do the work as long as you get a good egg donor, so yes I am sure this is possible . What do your clinic say or have you not reached that stage yet? XX

My clinic discharged me saying donor egg is my only hope and should get in touch once I've decided to use either a known donor or donor banks.

I already have a donor ready. I am almost finalizing clinics at this stage. I've detailed my concern in the other response to you.

Yes I don't get periods anymore. Peri menopause and 7 weeks pregnant with donor egg. Most people that do DE have POF. Xx

That gives me hope... so basically I've never ever had periods beside the only first and the second bleed at puberty. Drs think I have been menupausal since teen years and now I am looking at private clinics to book myself for a DE ivf.

Was it your first try? How long have u not bled since? Sorry for asking so many questions.

Thank you for such a sweet and motivating response. I cannot explain how I feel, it took us 4 years to come to terms with having to use donor eggs which now isn't the problem - we are both fine with it so long as the baby is ours and carries my husbands DNA. What I want to know is, is it just that simple? My Dr says I'll have to take medication for 10 days before they can do a transfer!!! (Private clinic) it's all so overwhelming and feels unreal - it keep questioning myself to know if this could be right and if really it's just a matter of 10 days? I've not bled for 25+ years and had no hope due to POF and now for drs to say 10 days is panicking me. Not sure if I've explained really well.

Sweetie we went ahead with our treatment and with the grace of god everything worked for us first time round, I am 20 weeks pregnant with twins all because our prayers were answered.

I wish you all the best of luck in your journey and hope you can be as happy as I am now too. πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€
