Response to Very sensitive question re remaining embryo


We had five embryos left. An unbelievable amount when you consider that they were from one cycle that produced two children and enough embryos for the three transfers I did. When DD2 was about a year old I contacted the clinic and asked them to use them for research or destroy them. I am not sure which they did. I knew three children was too many for me and I also know that I personally felt I had reached my own self imposed age limit. I was 42 which I know is actually pretty young but for a variety of reasons, it was my limit (which may very well have changed had I not had success!). We did not feel comfortable donating to another couple. This was the right decision for us but I realize it is not the right decision everyone. Wishing you luck as you make your decision-it is not an easy one.
