Hello,


I am so sorry about your boyfriend. this must be very difficult for you both to go through. I have not done egg sharing but I think you should call your local fertility clinics in your area and ask them if they do it. I think a few girls here have done it. I some what do egg sharing but it's with donor eggs. We are in a program that splits one donors eggs between 3 couples that need them. Perhaps you could split your own eggs with 2 other couples and they would cover the costs of your treatment ??? just a thought.


Many hugs to you on your journey !!!! may God bless you and keep you and your boyfriend.

If your eggs are fine, maybe you could consider IUI. It is less $$ than IVF. Have you looked into that option?

Thanks everyone!


My BF will be out of surgery later today and we will know the prognosis. I have an appointment for consultation Friday March 7 at the local fertility clinic. I found out that they don't even do egg donation there, but IUI is not too expensive. The sperm prep is $200 and $200 for one insemination. There are extras for fertility drugs, initial blood tests etc... It should come out under $1000, which I believe I can handle.


There will be some hard choices, though. I think the doc might not want to use any drugs, due to concerns about multiples. On the other hand, there is a limited amount of pre-chemo sperm. (I also contacted the bank for a copy of the full report of amount, motility, etc...) And another issue...I'm just off the pill and haven't had a normal cycle yet. I went on the pill at 14 for severe cramps so I don't remember what my real cycles are like. It's possible that I might have my own fertility problems anyway, which is very scary.


It's going to be hard to wait for my appt.
