@KathrineG,
Hi, KathrineG. My program was conducted in the UK. I didn’t pay anything for the donor egg, just medical expenses and we also compensated the donor several day offs and transportation and hotel expenditures. I didn’t meet the woman who donated her eggs to me. The only available information was a short description of her weight, height, the color of her eyes and hair and so on. No photos available. Overall, the donor and I have the same height and weight, nose shape and hair color. I can’t say that my daughter resembles me greatly, but it doesn’t matter much. I love her greatly and I’m extremely grateful to a woman who gave an opportunity to become a mother.

@bettybetty,
Bettybetty, I’m really glad for you and your daughter. It’s nice that your program finished with such a positive result! I don’t care much about the fact whether my baby will resemble me or not.
However, my husband and I want to ‘buy’ donor eggs. We want to get a total anonymity.
Several days ago I contacted one clinic from abroad. They sell donor eggs and take money for their services. The prices are quite affordable for us. If I sign up a contract, I’ll get an opportunity to get a 3D photo of the women who may become an egg donor.
Frankly speaking, I’m a little bit puzzled about this: if I see a donor’s photo I think I will start thinking about her constantly and I will always see her in my future baby. On the other hand, I get a nice opportunity to choose the most appropriate donor egg… Just don’t know what to do.

@KathrineG,
Then just don’t do this. I got only a small description of the woman who donated her egg to me. You can do the same thing if anything causes you a problem or some inconvenience.
P.S. One of my close friends also went abroad to donate an egg. She was a single woman with some ovary problems. Her result was also awesome. Now she is a mum of a year-old boy.

I can't offer knowledgeable information, but generally, when you have misgivings this early, it will only get worse. I suggest you take them off your list.

@roger,
Hi, everybody! I’m back again and I need your help. I’ve got interested in one Ukrainian clinic. It’s situated in Kiev, but I don’t know whether to contact them or not… The problem is that this clinic has both positive and negative feedbacks, and I can’t really understand whether it’s good or bad one. Some ladies write that the clinic’s services are excellent. Others complain that the clinic is always too overcrowded and they have to wait in a queue to contact the doctor…
Now I have a question: if the clinic is always too overcrowded, is it a good or bad sign???

@KathrineG,
Hi, KathrineG! As far as I understand, you’re speaking about a reproductive clinic. I think if the clinic has lots of clients, it may be quite OK. However, you won’t get entire information until you go and visit this clinic by yourself. If you got interested in it, why don’t you call or email them? If I were you, I would certainly do it!!!
P.S. You may also search some additional information about this clinic on various forums, make a list of questions you would like to ask and then go to Kiev and discuss them with the clinic’s representatives.

@Lakelily,
Hi, everybody. I just want to ask you one more question about egg donation. I’m 48, and I need a donor egg to become pregnant again. My health is OK. I’m slim and full of energy. I try to eat only healthy food and do fitness several times a week. However, I have finished ovulating, and the last time I had my periods was when I was 44. Now I have to decide how many IVF with DE attempts to try. Is it enough to take 1 shot? Or maybe several shots will be ok?

@KathrineG,
Hi, you should discuss it with the fertility specialist you are going to deal with. I think you should pass a good medical checkup to understand whether your body is ready to become pregnant again. Only the med test results will reveal true information!!! However, if you want to enhance your chances of becoming pregnant, I would advise you take special vitamins or maybe change your eating habits by giving up junk food. I used to have some problems with fertility too. However, I ate too many fruits and vegetables. And, finally, I conceived naturally!!! You may try the same…

@bettybetty,
My hubby and I will travel to Ukraine soon as we have an appointment with a fertility specialist there. I have googled some information about this country. I know that it’s at war now, but the city we are going to visit is rather peaceful. Is there anybody here who has visited Ukraine recently? Especially, I’m interested in Kiev cause we’re going to visit it. Is the apartment and food cheap there? Maybe, you’ll advise some places to visit in free time???

Hi! I was in Ukraine in March 2016, and I liked loads of things about this country. Firstly, Ukrainians are very friendly and kind. They are ready to help you anytime you ask them. The country has quite a lot of political and economic problems, but it looks really cool. The things there are cheap if you buy them with the help of dollars or euros. Kiev is a modern city. It has appropriate entertainment for everybody. I used to do several sightseeing tours there. So you don’t need to be afraid of coming there by any means!

Please check out the State Department travel advisory. It's updated all the time to keep Americans knowledgable about their travel plans. The State Dept won't advice you to not travel, but they will tell you about scams to avoid.

@glitterbag,
Hi, ladies! Thanks your answers and messages! They’ve become a real help and support for me. Tomorrow my journey will start so I feel a little bit nervous. I’ve decided to try a donor egg because of my age. I look rather young and feel good, but my gyny recommends me not to take risks. I don’t want to experience any abortions, miscarriages or something like this…

@KathrineG,
If you use a donor egg it won't be your baby. I would recommend against.
If your husband dreams of having a baby with you it won't come true that way.
You could adopt and avoid the whole pregnancy if biological relationship is not important. I don't know what the odds of delivering a normal child at 48 and you should get some good medical advice on that. I think it's awful flippant for that doctor to jump right to a donor egg before you've had yours
evaluated. I suggest you do that research on the subject and crunch the numbers. I hope that nothing I said upsets you because it was not meant to.
I wish you the very best possible outcome.

@Candlelight8,
Hi, Candlelight8! Thanks for your message! I also thought about it. I really look very young and healthy, and none believes me that I’m 48 years old. However, I don’t have periods anymore. I can’t ovulate, but my kidneys, heart, lungs and womb are in a good condition. It means I’m healthy enough to carry and give birth to a child. My husband and I have also discussed the ethical side of this issue I told him that I would only carry and give to a child, but it won’t be genetically mine. He told me that the baby would be totally us, because I will give birth to him not anybody else. As for adoption, we also want to adopt. We want to adopt a little boy or girl as soon as our mutual baby will be born.
