Hi. My partner (age 40) and I have had 5 failed cycles. We had quality embryos/blastocycts most cycles but couldn't achieve pregnancy. Did PGT-a testing and how heading for egg donation. I'd be keen to hear from people who had a similar experience, went towards egg donation, and are now getting a clearly greater number (or higher quality) embryos/blastocysts. Is it true? Has egg donation noticeably improved the situation? So much as reaching pregnancy? Which banks are you using? Which clinics? Would also be interested in comments from those where it has not helped? Many thanks.

i had great egg retrieval and implantation of embryos but never achieved a sustainable pregnancy. We did donor egg and I now have 2 amazing DC.
we used ivig post implantation to support the pregnancy. We did ours through London Bridge clinic in Ukraine
