First of all, I would like to thank everyone who responded to me when I first joined this board about a month ago. I was so overwhelmed at the time, and it made me feel much better!
Now, after months of poring over potential donors, my DH and I have selected one we felt really good about. However, when I spoke to our donor coordinator this morning, she informed me that the donor had recently had a Mirena IUD inserted. Now I'm back to feeling overwhelmed and concerned. Most clinics won't even let someone become a donor until two months after they have the Mirena device removed. This would obviously significantly impact our schedule, and I'm also concerned about the number/quality of eggs this donor will now produce as a result of the Mirena device. I also have to wonder why on earth a donor - and this one is experienced - would put in such an IUD when she knew people were actively considering using her as a donor.
So she currently has the Mirena IUD in place? It does seem odd she would have that inserted while she is on a donor list, hmmmm. Maybe she thinks it is no big deal, she'll just have it quickly removed if she is selected as a donor and it is really good reliable birth control. It is easy to have an IUD removed. I had one removed and it was quick, easy and painless.
I don't think the IUD will effect the number or quality of eggs after she has it removed. If she is the one you want I would wait for her and don't let the IUD worry you.
