This forum seems to be the place to be! So glad I found it.
My partner and I are both 29 and planning for our future. We have been together for ages and always hoped we would have kids... yet now we are seriously organising it the whole process is so overwhelming! I do envy those who can just shag and get pregnant! I am hopeful I will be able to share my journey with you all; and hear about yours
Anyway, I am currently at uni and can't get pregnant until 2019 (when I am 32); however we have made an appointment with an IVF doctor to organise egg harvesting, insemination and freezing of the embryo. I want to get my younger eggs out now! Also, I have PCOS so I anticipate some complications as a result.
We are hoping to use international sperm (so we can ensure we get heaps of the same stuff); and also hoping to use both of our eggs at some point.
I had a few questions I was hoping you wise people could help me with before my appointment:
- is it legal for my partner to donate her eggs, and me to carry them?
- what is the best sperm donor bank from OS?
- Has anyone ever frozen embryos before? Is this successful?
- Have any of you successfully fallen pregnant with PCOS?
Apologies if these questions are naive - I am just learning! Also, apologies I am not up with the lingo yet but I am learning as I read
Thank you! I look forward to learning about your journey too!
