My story, just like many others, came with disappointments. My husband and I initially began this journey due to him having a vasectomy and then his reversal not working. We went into this thinking it was going to be relatively easy.I have two other friends whom were able to get pregnant from their first IVF cycle. Well, that didn't happen with us. For some unexplained reason, my ovaries were not reacting as they should to the hormonal treatment. I was not producing enough eggs to really give us a good chance (3-6 eggs). Even after increasing the dosage and making some other changes, still no luck. Then Dr. Browne suggested the donor egg option. Of course, I was extremely heartbroken facing the fact that I could not get pregnant. So the idea initially was kinda a reminder of that fact. After talking with Dr. Browne a few times, with my husband and a counselor, I was able to accept it with open arms.
It has been a year now since I had my beautiful twin boy and girl. I am overwhelmed with joy and can't imagine life without them. I'm very happy that I made the decision to give it another try. Five cycles later......and our life will never be the same.
