Trying to Conceive with DOR
(New Bedford, MA)
I am overwhelmed. I am 40 years old and have been informed by a Reproductive Endocrinologist at Boston IVF that my chances of conceiving on my own are <5% because of diminished ovarian reserve.
My Day 3 FSH was 18.4. Because of my elevated FSH, I have been informed based that I am not a candidate for either an IUI or IVF.
The RE recommended egg donation as my best alternative for pregnancy. You were recommended by a friend.
I am a nurse and have always believed in Western medicine, however I am sad to think that egg donation is my only or best alternative. I can barely function beyond my sadness right now.
I just read Inconceivable and have been perusing your website. While both give me some hope---in my mind, I cannot get my arms around where to even begin to try to help myself in some alternative way.
I would love your feedback.
