One of the hardest things infertile couples need to do is to make decisions. This is especially true when they are thinking about emotionally charged and sensitive issues as to whether to use donor eggs or not. After all , there are always multiple options, and the answers are never black or white. This can become especially difficult if both husband and wife don't see eye-to-eye about the subject.

There really is no easy answer for this kind of impasse, and doctors are not always the best people to give guidance, because this is something that depends on your individual personal preferences.

It can be very helpful if both of you can talk to one person whom you both respect and trust. This could be one of your parents - or perhaps a coach ; a friend; a mentor; or a psychological counselor , who can help you discover the right decision for yourself. You need to find someone who is kind and empathetic, so you can unburden your heart, and discuss the pros and cons of all the options which are available to you.

This path will give you peace of mind that you've made the decision which was right for you !
