It is essentially anonymous but you get to choose your donor from a comprehensive profile where they outline family medical history, personal medical history, a bit about their hobbies, looks, likes/dislikes, reasons for donating, you see baby photos through to when they are about 8, but no adult photos. You also get a donation history from the agency showing how many donations/pregnancies from donations etc.

All done, one really good 2d, 4 cell embie on board, so begins the tww. The other 4 frosties are also really good quality with almost no fragmentation among them.
I managed to upset the doctor and scientist with the questions I was asking about doing another EPU if this cycle failed. Seems I shouldn't have been on the donor wait list if I hadnt yet given up on my own eggs as that means I was not ready. Makes sense I suppose....

Good luck @leyshoja ! Hope everything goes well for you. I have a couple of friends that have babies from the donor path, and they are so happy. One always says that it may have been a donor egg, but it is her blood that flows through her daughters veins.

I agree, why on earth couldn't I try with my own once more, now that I've got some good embies as backup. Does that mean that I'm not allowed to try naturally between FET's also ?! Apparently I was 'informed' that they wouldn't do any more EPU's if I was on the donor waiting list - like hell I was. I would have remembered that ! I still feel like a naughty child after that conversation yesterday, which makes me a bit angry. I've given them a tonne of money and am paying them for a service, why can't I choose my own treatment options.
I have the same opinion about only 1 embryo being transferred. Why can't I have two !!! If there is only a 1 in 3 chance of success, and I'm prepared to take the risk of twins, isn't that my concern, not theirs ..? They will consider it if I have to do another FET after this one, so why not consider it now ? Personally I think they do it so that I HAVE to pay for another cycle. Rant over.

@leyshoja - I agree, it annoys me how sanctimonious the clinics can get about what is 'best for you' - I think we should decide what is or isn't in our best interests. I had the same naughty school kid feel after being scolded by a counsellor at Melb ivf for having had a boyfriend whilst on the single girl/sperm donor path. I was told I had to be out of a relationship for 3 months before they would let me continue.

@leyshoja - luckily I had been out of the relationship for a couple months already - we had actually started ivf proceedings as a couple then we split so there was no hiding it. But I was annoyed they were forcing that on me.
