so DH and I have had it confirmed with our recent third failed ICSI IVF that the only route we have to have a child will be with donor eggs. While I am still grappling with the magnitude of that DH is happy to proceed 'whenever I feel ready' ...
so being the planner that I am I have trolled the various websites for donors here in Australia and OS. At this stage If we choose to go OS I kinda have a preference for which country but wanted to ask those who had done this already:
1. what was your primary concern when choosing a clinic?
(ie did you pick your clinic first and then a donor that serviced this clinic or did you choose a donor first and pick a clinic close by?)
2. Should blood type be a consideration? (I am Rh negative, does this make a difference?)
3. What criteria did you use when picking a donor?
(did you choose by physical aesthetics ? Age? Cultural heritage? Medical background? Tried and tested donor?)
And I guess what also terrifies me at this early stage of our decision making is for those that did it and ended up with a BFN, what did you think was the underlying factor?
Looking forward to your feedback.
