Hi Kathryn,

Our desire is to try one IVF with my eggs and husband’s sperm (with me carrying the pregnancy) before moving on to using donated eggs. We do understand the poor success rate for a woman my age, but if we don’t try, we’ll always regret it. So far, none of our doctors have expressed any concern about me being able to sustain a pregnancy. Currently, due to financial considerations, we are looking to go overseas for the IVF treatment, particularly Barbados.

We are also looking into shared cycle Egg Donation in US.

Thank you so much and we look forward to hearing from you again.

Thanks for the email.

As for egg sharing – our sister Agency (Agency for Surrogacy Solutions) had offered a program like that but we have not had any young women want to share their eggs with another couple. Once they explore it they realize they’d rather save their money to do a cycle and not share.  Some clinics  (I believe Fairfax in VA used to do it) will match couples and have them split an egg donor cycle – but this still seems to cost at least $20 – $25K per couple.

As for using your own eggs – I do not know what the success rates in Barbados are for people having issues with their own eggs. What I do know is that some Israeli clinics are having the highest success rates for the over 40 women in the world – we were told 24% – 36% success. This is unheard of anywhere else.

Hope that helps.
