Hello!

Its time to break up our relationship with the freezer. Just thinking of it sends my head into a spin and tummy into an anxious knot. My health is not good. I could not go through another pregnancy. Its taken me a long time to come to admit that. It hurts. It burns. We don’t have any other wombs available – I’ve checked! And even if we did, my health is not good and I doubt my ability to look after a baby/toddler. Its time to let go to the embryos. My husband has already made peace with the decision. Its time.

  • Could you not donate them to someone? A hard decision I understand as ultimately you’re giving away your babies. But if you can’t use them, they might help someone else

  • Such a big decision but at least you have come to terms with it.
    I also did IVF and had 2 embryos we decided to give them to research as knew our family was complete.

  • It’s a sad feeling I think for a lot of women whether it’s removing frozen eggs or tubial ligation, the end of something, men seem to find peace easy with these decisions, you have the right to feel this way and hopefully eventually you will be at peace with your decision

  • I read this and wondered if I’d sleep-written it. I am in the same situation. I think it is something we do need to grieve – it’s saying goodbye to potential children.

  • I can empathise with you deciding that now it’s time to stop. It’s a tough decision to make especially when the heart yearns for more but the body says no. I didn’t have eggs in storage but my health, age & God knows, my mind I don’t think would’ve coped with another pregnancy so I made the decision to have my tubes not just clamped but cut & a portion removed during my C-section. Definitely not reversible but I am happy with my decision. You will eventually too. Cherish what you’ve got.
