Response to Has anyone heard of VITRIFIED EGG DONATION?
i know that cornell in NYC is doing a trial and has had good results. a friend of mine got preg using the protocol at cornell. it didn't work the first time but then she had one embie left on ice and it worked on her FET! pretty amazing when you think it was double frozen: first the egg and then the resulting embie.
if you can afford another fresh cycle, that would be my suggestion only because you're having a hard time and the vitrification hasn't been perfected yet. also you should see what they mean by 97% success. how many people have actually done it and are in that group? what is the live birth rate? etc.
i don't know the rhyme and reason of why our DE cycles work sometimes and other times don't. i feel that if you have covered all your bases, gotten your immune testing done and checked your dh's sperm, then it really is somewhat of a crap shoot. here is my history to show you that miracles really do happen!
4 IUI's + 5 OE IVF's - all BFN
donor #1 transferred 2 blasts - chemical pregnancy
donor #1 FET 3 blasts of questionable quality - BFN
donor #2 we were cancelled out of that cycle because she didn't produce enough eggs
donor #3 transferred 3 on day 3 - BFP, early m/c
donor #4 transferred 3 on day 3 - success! our little boy is 3 yrs old!
donor #5 transferred 2 blasts - BFN
donor #5 FET 1 blast - BFN
donor #6 transferred 3 on day 3 - success! 28 weeks pregnant!
i'm wishing you all the very best!
