I'm 41 years old now, just finished our 5th IVF and have no clear answer as to why it hasn't worked yet. I'm trying to figure out what the next step should be... Welcome to my nightmare and thanks for reading.
PS~ English is my second language so please forgive my errors :)
I talked to the doctor (he is so nice!) I asked a bunch of questions and he said I should take my time and think about it. He called the girl and asked to wait a month, she agreed but doesn't want to wait much longer because of the wedding plans.
He guarantees me 6 mature eggs with her, he is confident in her egg quality. Last time she cycled was a year ago and there is a baby out of that one and another one from a frozen egg cycle. He can guarantee me a blast for sure but feels he can get me 2 or 3, even with Dan's sperm. He had proven to create blasts in the past so he is not worried about that.
If I go with another donor, we could possible get 8 eggs for the same price. But he said that doesn't necessarily mean a better outcome. He is not pushing for this particular donor, her count is on the low side, and for him another girl might be a more cost effective choice for his business, but this girl has such a great track record that he is happy to use her again.
I like her, what can I say? And I have a good feeling about it. To be honest, I would move forward with it today, but a month to think about it can't hurt.
In the meantime, we'll look at other girls, keep our minds open and see.
