I just saw this and thought it was really interesting; a CBC story on coparenting websites with some interviews. Apologies for crashing the thread (I am not a SMBC but have considered it a lot over the last few years).

I could definitely identify with the grieving of the nuclear family by the 2nd woman, that was really hard at first, feeling like "what was wrong with me" that I couldn't do things the normal way, though I've never thought of doing it other than on my own as a result.  And the loss of doing it with my own eggs has been harder than the loss of the "normal" pattern of meeting a guy, getting married, etc.


Me: 40 41 42 43, single, FSH 6, LH 2 (FSH not high, but exceeds 2:1 ratio), DOR (AFC 5-7, v.low AMH), all else normal/healthy.
