Time for egg donor?
An_241790 posted:
I am 45 y.o. My husband and I are looking to get pregnant. We consulted a fertility specialist who tested my FSH level. Found it to be high...reflecting a likelihood of poor quality eggs. My husband has very low sperm count, so the sperm must be extracted from his testicles. The specialist recommends egg donor. I want to try for my own first however. I want to try IUI with fertility pills. I appreciate any insights. Thanks.

Hello An_241790 and thank you for posting.

If you do not feel comfortable with your current fertility specialist's recommendations, you can make another appointment to discuss what you'd like to do with him or her. Maybe you can work out a plan together. Or you can seek out a second opinion--perhaps from an expert who specializes in helping women who are at an advanced maternal age.

Because of your age, I would encourage you to be proactive and get started with a specialist you feel comfortable with. You may want to post on our Infertility Treatment community too, for more support.

Best wishes to you and your husband both,

I'm not going to vacuum 'til Sears makes one you can ride on.~
