So as some of you may have experienced treatment robs you of your fertility. I am 32 and never had children. Luckily I got my eggs frozen few months back. I think when you are going through treatment etc everything is so overwhelming I’m finding now it’s the waiting game I’m dealing with the loss and emotions of my fertility which I’m finding extremely sad and hard.
I am in a serious relationship and we both want children but unfortunately my partner isn’t too keen on adoption (which is another story I think he’s being very closed minded) so iv been doing all my research on surrogacy. I’m not in a position now to do this but I think it’s good to be prepared for the future. However the research out there is not very informative and mostly American where I live in the U.K. Looks like cost wise it’s £20k in total! I can’t imagine getting my hands on that amount of money.
I would be really interested in hearing from women that have or going through this experience that could kindly shed some light on the matter? It’s making me feel really down about my future and not being able to have a family…
