Donating eggs with IUD
I'm hoping to donate my eggs to women who are struggling with infertility. I had my first consultation yesterday. I was really worried about having to get my Mirena removed-- I'd be willing to do it, but wasn't particularly excited about it! But it turns out, I get to keep my Mirena in! The nurse said I'll need to take oral BC for a month or so to help regulate my cycle (since my periods are irregular), but otherwise it's not a problem. She also said that they've extracted eggs from woman with Mirenas, and that the procedures went just fine, and the success rate of turning eggs into pregnancies was the same.
So yay! I know this is a random thing to post about, but I just wanted to share this experience with you. If you're considering egg donation and you have an IUD, there's a good chance you can still do it!
(And if anyone has any experiences with egg donation, I'd love to hear them. I'm also willing to answer any questions about the process as best as I can!)
