    @winsor I've emailed you the CFC price list and both twin's profiles if you'd like to take a squizz.
    Dr W has requested a psychological screening of my 18 y/o egg donor is ensure she is mature enough to donate which I think is very sensible. I have to pay for it though. I've also raised her having her AMH tested with the ED agency.

    @winsor - My two cents - I think she is not a great option because
    - if she is saying she wants to keep some for herself I'd say she is not ready to hand them over to you fully or make the emotional disconnect.
    - I doubt very much any clinic would let you do that anyway (could be wrong)
    - 36 is on the verge of too old
    - complicated relationship situation
    - what if she only gets a few eggs ?
    I haven't really given much thought to the teen-hate thing. I guess I'll see how that goes when we get there, but all we can do is love them as much as possible and let them know that we wanted them and tried for a long time to have them. Donors in CT are able to tick the yes/no box as to whether they would be open to future contact so you could always choose one of those..

    @Windsor hi ☺ i would be leaning more towards a younger donor that already has children because what if you did share the eggs from your friends donation and you fell pregnant and she didn't. How do you think she might handle a situation like that? It could cause problems with relationships. But i dont know her obviously so Im sure all that would be discussed prior. Its really nice she offered, a guy my work did ivf with his wife to get their child. She has offered to donate for me too which is sweet. I have the same concern as you when they arr teenagers but your right, they will always find some reason to hate you! All you can do is bring them up to be balanced and know they are loved and wanted. Goodluck

    thanks @JulieMalooley & @ECM1981 yes, I think it's too close & complicated with her. she's lovely to offer but I think she really wants her own family (& after breaking up with DP's cousin she thinks this is further away now). I mentioned to her it's usually <35 with own family already and what would happen if we got pg but her eggs didn't work later (I mentioned the risk of the 1cell unfertilised eggs not defrosting properly yet). DP said she was just being emotional when she offered. I must admit my eyes did light up for a second when the possibility was raised, but then my logical mind kicked in with the complexities. I said I'm happy to help her with any ivf questions/cycles if she wants to save her eggs.

    thanks, I didn't realise about the future contact option at CT. I'll look into this more tonight once work finishes. DP was keen on a holiday to CT. yes, all we can do is love them of course.

    I think it's just Nurture who ask their egg donor's about future contact.

    Good point @Tahli.
    Just on the 1 cell egg freezing @winsor, my first cycle being an egg freeze I had 10 frozen, 8 actually defrosted but of those I only ended up with 2 x 3 day embies for transfer. I think the defrost rate is not too bad, but the final embie rate ended up a bit lower than it did for all my other cycles. Really, thats a 20% embie rate and on other EPUs I had 30-50%. Not a huge difference but maybe the quality is slightly affected and if I had to do it again (single, getting older, whatever) and no other options, I'd still tell people to do it, but do it ASAP.

    And gift of life did too when i picked our last donor.
    @Windsor i have recently signed up to egg donor australia just to see. The girl that offered to donate for me recommended i do because she said there are lots of women all in different circumstances offering to donate. She is going to offer herbeggs once she has had her family. Its just an option to keep in the back of your mind as i know you have had a tough time lately xx
