Hi everyone , my husband and I are about to start our first round of IVF with donor eggs in a few months . I was diagnosed when I was in my early twenties with premature ovarian failure and now I am 30 we have decided now is the time to start trying .

It's a very isolating experience.

I feel like I'm in slow motion, my life is in slow motion.

I am hoping that with the support of this group I can get through this the other side .

I'm so greatful so many of you are sharing your stories. I have kept my journey very private as I felt ashamed , however after all this time I feel I can now start opening up and sharing my experiences .

Thanks 😁

Hi Summerdays. Welcome to the Forum. It won't be long before you too find the support you are looking for as you start your treatment. I have lots of photos from successful ladies/couples who have undergone egg donation - happy families. Obviously I wish you both well with all of this, and of course for success. Diane

Hey, welcome to the family! This is a really good site for information and support when starting treatment. There are quite a few ladies here doing DE treatment as well as others doing OE cycles. Please dont feel ashamed, none of this is your fault....we've just been dealt a bit of crappy hand unfortunately! And remember its nobody else's business so you dont have to tell anyone if you dont want to, only share what you are comfortable with and choose wisely who you share it with. Wishing you all the best.xx

Welcome..we have some lovely peeps on here!

I’m just starting a DE round :-)

Good luck with your journey xx

Hi Summerdays1, welcome to the group you have come to the right place. I joined last Jan as I embarked on my 1st round of IVF with OE but I didn't respond to meds and was told that it wouldn't happen and only option DE, I was very upset at the time but after sharing experiences with other ladies on here that had gone down the DE route it made me feel more open to the idea, I am now undergoing treatment abroad after selecting a donor and I feel like we made the right choice as all I want is to be a mom. Please don't feel ashamed it really isn't your fault and as Cinderella has said it's your business and you don't have to tell anybody if you don't want to but I've found it helps if you have somebody to talk to as it can be a difficult journey. Have you thought of counselling? Xx
