Hi all,

 

I am talking to people in Canada who have used donor eggs. Currently, the Canadian government is reconsidering the rules around compensation and I'm hoping my research will be able to provide some information/perspective from patients who have used donor eggs. In order to do this, however, I need to hear from people like you who have navigated the Canadian system to find donor eggs. I am also interested in talking to people who have decided to go abroad for donor eggs. So let your voices be heard. 

 

Don't worry all of your information will remain confidential. This means that I won't share any of your personal identifying information with anyone. In fact, I'm required to remove anything that will identify you. The McGill Ethics Board has approved my study and has helped me put in place safety guards to ensure your privacy.

 

The research will also be used to help me complete my doctoral degree in sociology at McGill University. 

 

Please feel free to message me here or email me at [email protected] You can also call me at 514-559-7593.

I used donor eggs from Mexico and it was easy, and a perfect experience and out of 6 eggs, 4 were perfect and one turned into my miracle.

Hi there,
I might be interested and suspect others might be as well. Can you provide some more info first on what your topic is?
Thanks,

Hi North,

 

I am looking at how Canada's regulations surrounding egg donation affects people's abilities to find donor eggs. I'm looking to interview people who travel for egg donation, people who stay in Canada and use a known or anonymous donor, and people who use frozen donor eggs. Additionally, I am interested in interviewing people who could not find or decided not to pursue donor eggs. 

 

If you or anyone is interested, I can set up a phone interview with you. I am really interested in hearing the voice of Canadian fertility patients so it would be great if you could share :)

Hi Guys,

 

I spoke to Skye today.

 

It was an easy conversation telling her about my journey and letting her know what I think about the process, the law and how I would like to see the system changed.

 

I highly recommend taking the hour to chat with her.  We need to have our voices heard as intended parents so that the new system is fair for everyone involved.

DE IVF overseas in Jan 2017 = BFN with no frosties

 

DE IVF overseas in July 2017 = ET cancelled because of poor lining, DH went without me and we froze both blasts that made it to day 5.

 

Mock cycle in August 2017 = by George I think we've got it! Lining responded well to a new protocol, FET scheduled for September 2017.

 

FET overseas September 2017 = cancelled due to poor lining. This is getting really frustrating now. Change of protocol again.

 

FET overseas October 2017 = cancelled due to poor lining.

 

FET overseas November 2017 = tried doing a natural cycle FET but a surprise O on CD6 cancelled those plans.

 

FET overseas December 2017 = natural cycle FET cancelled, again due to an early O (CD10) and thin lining.

 

FET overseas January 2018 = cancelled due to a 31mm cyst on left ovary.

 

FET overseas March 2018 = lining reached 6.4mm on a combo of pentoxifylline, estradiol valerate injections and Estrace. Trilaminar so despite being a bit thin the doctor said let's go. Flew solo to the CR for the transfer and found out my lining had grown to 7.4mm between my last u/s and the transfer date! Woohoo, go me! BFN 12dp5dt.

 

FET overseas May 2018 = lining reached 6mm on low-dose Gonal-F and the doctor insisted on going ahead with the transfer, despite there being no dominant follicle yet so there was no chance I would ovulate. On transfer day my lining was a disappointing 7.1mm. Transferred our last frostie (5AB hatching blast) on May 25, BFN on 13dp5dt.

 

Nothing left in the freezer, the bank account or the emotional reserves; this is the end of the pregnancy road for us.
