I am really upset; donor embryo info

Hi ladies,

After much consideration about funding, my awesome DH and I decided to move forward to donor embryo. We have come to terms with the bio thing, we really just know in our hearts we want a family.

So I have been researching this all morning and I find 3 clinics that have programs, and they say they won't let you in if you are over 45. I turn 46 in November, but I don't look it, feel it, or act it. My DH is 30. I am totally devastated... why would there be discrimination when I can march in and do a donor egg program upwards close to 50? Have you heard of anyone my age being successful in finding an embryo?

I also read a post that a couple had posted on miracles waiting and received no responses because the wife was in her 40s.

I really am shocked and saddened. I thought we found the 'answer'. Of course I would rather go with donor egg but it is just not financially viable for us at this time. My heart is aching.

hi, Mattie,
You don't know me but I've been on the ttc over 40 board for a year. Just found out that my one and only IVF try is a bust. that's it and I'm also moving on to donor eggs. Really upset. It is nice to see you on this board, though. I feel like you're an old friend even though we never chatted! I, too, am running out of time. Just turned 43. If nothing else, it is good for me to hear this info that, even with DE, there is a time limit looming.

I really hope things work out for you!

best,
martha
