Response to Pathology report, parvo virus. MC ment


I don't think the parvo would have originated with the donor, b/c I don't think, to date, there has ever been documented a case of disease transmission from eggs (whereas the seminal fluid in donor sperm DOES carry disease). THe risk, and hence all of the infectious disease testing we have to do on EDs (twice even), is all theoretical at this point. It IS possible however to have been exposed to something and not develop antibodies. It has happened when people get chicken pox twice (not shingles, the actual chicken pox), and also evidenced by vaccines wearing off (eg I had to have rubella shot twice). So in theory, you could have been exposed and not known it? It seems like either of these things is such a longshot odds-wise though. I'm just so sorry you are going through this, in addition to the crushing blow you've already experienced, this must be terribly frustrating not feeling confident with about the remaining embies. I would definitely speak with your RE, and maybe even make an appt with an infectious disease specialist (I did not know this specialty existed until recently until my mom had a MRSA infection recently in the joints of her hand - the doctor she saw was very knowledgeable about stuff most GPs, and presumably REs, are not). Huge hugs, again I am so sorry for your loss.
