Donor Failed again

goldie - January 15

My donor who is 26 yrs failed the first cycle due too starting off with high E2 having to be given meds to lower it, when she started to stim they didn't give her the right amount of meds for her and her E2 fell, so the cycle was cancelled.

This month, her E2 was high again, they gave her meds to lower it and it did not come down this time and the IVf cycle was cancelled again.

Donor nurse said, the donor told her she did not have a good period like she normally does and when they gave her and u/s her lining was already a 7.

How can this donor at 26 keep blowing the cycle? If she was put on BCP for 2 weeks, how can her lining be at 7 already.

Is this not a good donor, should I ask for another one?

Thanks

I realize that you are disappointed, but the donor didn't "blow it". It is clear that the donor is having atypical cycles and two atypical cycles is a red flag. Please understand that there is no way to predict a donor's response to the stimuation medications until the cycle has actually started. Donors are not egg machines. They can have their own here-to-forth unknown reproductive problems that become evident during the stimulated cycle. Anticipating your disappointment, I'm sure your RE felt a great deal of pressure to continue the second cycle. I think you RE made the appropriate judgement call and cancelled both cycles. I suggest you go back to the drawing board and choose another donor.
