    Only asking because I said to my partner if we end up doing IVF and we have left over eggs I would donate them I obviously don't have any issues with ovulation so can't imagine facing that obstacle too!

    I am sure there are places in Australia you can donate them to.

    It is interesting how usually you think of women having egg quality issues but not many people think there will be a problem with the male.

    Default Azoospermia #2

    Confused. @ttc1981: what did u mean by doing IVF and donate the left over eggs?

    Edit: you can always donate but clinics prefer a younger donor for quality. They also prefer one has completed the family. Don't ask me why because so many sperm donors haven't and the family limit takes into account of that. Your DH has to agree and does the counselling with you.

    For me, I only have left over embies. As far as I know (not even sure is true), nsw doesn't allow me to donate the left over because we use DS. Strange if u ask me. They keep telling us that we own the embryo but in this circumstance, we don't seem to own it. Also, if a donor is kind enough to donate, I don't think he would mind me donating to the other family? In WA, I was told that I can donate the left over embryo since we owned it. As for the family limit, the ART dept will make an exceptional rule for the embryo. Ie. Instead of 5 family limit, it can be six if the pregnancy occurs. Embryo has the highest priority than sperm or egg.

    I just meant if we are fortunate enough to have a successful IVF journey I would donate any left over eggs... I am only 34 but yep bordering on the 35 which as my doctor said things get harder from there... I just have heard of so many women who cannot conceive with there own eggs... My doctor specialises in women's fertility so was telling me about it... Calling tomorrow to speak to concepts about what the new DR Teoh specialises in and whether to change from Dr Artley... But yes a lot to get before then... I just understand Malak issues where her partner isn't keen on DS unless it's a DE... A lot to take in and get thru... Now just letting people know we are seeing a fertility specialist due to PCOS as easier to say that go into it all

    @ttc1981: Oh I got it. It would be left over embryos rather than eggs then. They normally fertilise all eggs per cycle. The main point of IVF is to get as many eggs and fertilise as many to have a chance of getting one to transfer.

    Sometimes you realise how hard this journey can be 😕.

    Today got my results back from the FS for my AHM etc and she said my eggs are good for my age. This makes me sad that if it wasn't for azoo there would be no problems.

    She did mention that she had a patient (she is an OBYGN as well) fall pregnant naturally at 50 years old!!

    I also remembered to ask about live birth rates for the mTESE and it was a very interesting conversation. She said that it all comes down to the eggs of the eggs if the female which is good.

    Since we aren't doing DS we will do spermhope and she was all for it. She said if we get a natural miracle pregnancy to let her know lol. I said to her that we can only dream!!

    I pretty sure that most of us are in the same boat -- only male side of problem. So yes, I could have fallen pregnant naturally in no time given my 100% implantation rate so far. The truth is that we have to accept somehow. If no problem, then no need IVF etc anymore, right? You need two to make a baby. On the bright side, one infertile is better than both.

    I'd wonder so many times if it was my bad eggs that wasted DH precious sperms. However, after my first round of donor cycle, it proved that good sperms make a huge difference in the fertilization rate. After this, my FS ensured me that my eggs are fine because i was still wondering about my egg quality after the first round.

    I also asked if there is any live birth from DrG patients. The answer is yes but it is all about the diagnosis and quality of sperms. For his patients, only half of them with sperm found have life birth. If i remember correctly, it is like 5%.

    Half of the chromosome comes from father and the other half from mother. So you need to have both good egg and sperm to make a baby. Certainly, good eggs will give a kick start. I stopped wonder if it was the sperms or the eggs. It will only drive me crazy to live in the past.

    That says, it is good news that you can have good quality eggs, it is one problem less to worry.

    It took us using donor sperm to find out my eggs are crap! And we tried two different donors before my FS would call it. So so SO glad there are drugs that can help with egg quality.

    Having said that, I have a friend who needed both the drugs I was on to have success with her eggs, but after that she went on to have a natural pregnancy for #2 (turns out her issues weren't ones that needed IVF). So maybe there's a chance people like her and possibly me can produce fine eggs in a natural cycle, but not when stimmed?

    I will never know, but I wish there was a way!

    @Sariele: look at MGC Bertie. Who would have thought that her current pregnancy is from IUI after N rounds of IVF?!? Perhaps yours would be the case.

    Edit: when are you coming over for the cycle?
