Hi I am new to FF and looking to build my courage to go again for a 2nd donor egg attempt. We have been TTC for about 4 years, and about a year ago were advised that DE was our best option, due mainly to our lack of success and my age, being 42 at the time. This came at a v difficult time in my life, as in the very same week that I began fertility investigation, I lost my Mum to cancer. Only 7 months beforehand we'd got married. We decided to get on with things and following a 2nd trip into hospital to have one tube removed, fibroids and endometriosis dealt with, we went to IM Barcelona last summer. In late August we had a BFN. Up until then our spirits had been very good, as we were doing something positive, yet after the BFN i kind of collapsed in a heap, realising everything that had happened. We had another set back in Oct when we were told my DH had significant DNA frag issue. He was very upset. But in a more recent test it seems now to be normal. I think we're ready to try again and I guess we just need to give ourselves the last little kick to get ourselves moving again. We're also undecided about whether to continue with IM, I wasn't too impressed with them in the Autumn and others have had negative experiences too it seems; the success rate seems to have dropped off. We could try somewhere like Zlin instead but that means starting all over again. I guess we just need a bit of inspiration and support to take the next step forwards. It would be great to talk to others on FF and get going again.
The info I've seen here already is beginning to help so thank you to FF, its so good to be able to relate to other members with similar issues and feelings. I had no idea how hard this was going to be.
