I went for my blood test this morning and then had a brief chat with the PA about donor eggs - how hard was it to find a donor, etc. She said that it was easy to get an egg donor - that they have 8 or so on file that I could chose from. If I didn't like any of those eight, I could use an agency ( I almost wrote eggency!) to find some one that met my requirements.
The most important thing that she said was that there is a 70 - 80% success rate with donor eggs - even at my age! This was music to my ears. This sounds interesting! I know it costs significantly more to use a donor egg but the odds are so much better that I think it is a better financial investment.
I am really excited and have a new hope for the possibility of having a child.
I never thought I would get to this point but here I am - seriously considering it.
