Hi Jessie, Im an ovarian stage IV survivor, lost all my reproductive organs plus my spleen and apprendix. Thank God I'm still here. I had an early menopause at 38 and have had no children, I did cry my eyes out being told I'm postmenopausal. I just want to encourage you to stay the course. Saving your eggs doesn't end your chance of being a mother. I didn't see in your note that your losing your womb. Honey lets look at the possibilities--your doctors are trying to save you some of your eggs for the future. Your eggs are your children. You have every right to mourn the loss of your fertility It wasn't part of the deal or hope. Ask the doctors what is the % of success, whats the procedure, how long can they be stored..ask your questions to get good info, You're in my prayers and get some answers.View Thread
