of patients towards having to use donor eggs can vary a lot !
Many older women have poor ovarian reserve , and they know that the best way of
having a healthy baby is to use donor eggs. However, lots of them find it very
difficult to come to terms with this.
believe - It's not going to be my child because my baby is not going to carry my
DNA. This is why they point-blank reject this option and refuse to explore it.
other hand, there are other women who say, "Look, at the end of the day
all I want is a baby. The DNA doesn't really matter , because as long as I love
the baby , this will by my child."
They are very
happy to accept this option , and are grateful that not only are there young
women who are happy to donate their eggs, they're also pleased that the
technology exists today to take advantage of this treatment something which simply
wasn't available 40 years ago.
acceptability of using donor eggs depends on the attitude of the patient and
what they really want from fertility treatment the propagation of their DNA ?
the pleasure of experiencing pregnancy ? or the joy of bringing up a baby ?
