I've been TTC for 3 years. Just as we made the decision to use DE, we found out my DH's sperm was severely compromised. He's had varicocele surgery, and his doctor said to wait 3 months before doing IVF. So we are in a hold pattern now. I have already found a donor and had a preliminary consult with an attorney. We are saving money for this procedure. The clinics in my area have pretty good success rates with DE IVF, around 70%. However, I get a feeling that if the DE IVF cycle fails, the RE will again blame it on me. Even though I think my husband's low morphology might have something to do with our previous TTC failures.

That's a pretty good success rate. My clinic is claiming a 50 percent success rate using donor eggs vs. 2 percent using my own eggs (I'm 45). So, to me, the decision was a no-brainer.

It seems different clinics have different success rates. One I found posted an 80% success rate w/donor eggs. The one I go to said 70%. Another RE I consulted with said 60%.

My biggest fear is, even with greatly increased chance of success, the DE cycle might not work. We plan to do one in the next couple of months and already found a donor. She is an independent donor, and I have no way of verifying if her previous cycles were as great as she claims.
