Infertility and IVF
June Shannon and her husband have been battling unexplained infertility for five years. They have tried two full rounds of IVF… two cycles using frozen embryos… and endured the devastating blow of a miscarriage.
They have decided to try one more time using eggs from an anonymous donor.
A number of fertility clinics in Ireland now run egg donation programmes in conjunction with clinics abroad in countries including the Czech Republic and Spain. It can be a complex process but, put very simply, a woman who has made the generous decision to donate her eggs will be selected anonymously, loosely based on June's physical characteristics.
