The infamous "Donor Egg Speech"
If you just found out you have high FSH there is a good chance you've heard it...."There is no treatment for elevated
FSH levels or the increased chromosomal abnormalities in older women’s eggs. The
only alternative besides adoption is substitution of eggs through ovum donation." "Your chance to conceive with your
own eggs is less that 1%"
What a crushing blow to hear these words! I've read so many stories from women who have be diagnosed with high
FSH and have received a version of this speech. There ARE Dr's out there who are high FSH friendly and are willing to
let us try with our own eggs. Keep in mind that many RE's and clinics are more concerned with their success rate than
dealing with us. If you get the speech, I suggest you find a new Dr!! There is hope out there!
