Hi - We are a couple currently considering our options. We recently gave birth to our beautiful, healthy, & gorg baby girl. Due to our age (42) we are not in a position to have any more children. We have a frozen embryo left over and now we dont know what to do. I dont think I can simply discard the embryo - but then again - who would want an embryo from a 40+
Any advice and suggestions would be appreciated

How & Where to donate a frozen embryo

I really feel for you. My dh and I were discussing this the other night. We currently have 11 blasties on ice from our 15th cycle (5th EPU) and while it took us this long to get pg and have been through nearly 100 eggs we don't know what to do and when to say enough is enough. I i hoped that i could just keep trying with them all but $ prevent. DH works with a guy who did IVF and have finished their ttc journey after completing their family and donated their remaining embies to another couple. They signed forms to say they are willing to meet the child(ren) should any be born (when they hit consenting age) my advise would be to speak to a counsellor and find out what are they criteria for donations ? Best wishes

I'd suggest you also speak to your fs. I'm sure that they would of seen this type of thing before and they would probably have great advice for you and may offer their own counsellor to you as you paid for it in past cycles. Good luck in making your decision.
