First donor didn't work out :(

Our clinic rejected our first choice donor because of a medical issue in her family history. We are bummed. We picked a second choice and await the dr's blessing on this one. Have been through the lawyer chat on the phone, my own testing, my husband's testing, and an all day orientation with other couples using IVF. This is a VERY long process, isn't it :(

I am sorry your first donor was rejected but it is great to know your doctor is looking out for your best interest and not just his bank account. Our clinic actually picks the donors for us so they have been pre-approved which is nice. I wish you luck with the second donor. I know there are several women on here who have had a lot of experience with multiple donors and they will all be willing to share their thoughts with you on the frustration and how to deal with it. I have discovered that this whole process requires patience so just try to take a deep breath and relax. You'll find the perfect donor very soon!

I'm sorry that it didn't work out, but sounds like you're already moving on which is good.


I think things will go more quickly once you have the donor set ... before you know it, you'll be starting your cycle!


((((hugs))))

Sorry donor 1 didn't work out but I hope things go smoothly with your second choice.

Hi Becky. I am glad your doc is looking out for you but I know how frustrating it can be. It also seems to take FOREVER (btdt so I know). BUT, once you get going, things will move quickly. Hang in there and good luck.
