It’s true…it hurts to be infertile. Like any other disease.

Recently, sitting face to face with an infertile patient, I asked him what the first thing was that came to his mind after being told that he had no sperm count. After a short silence in which his eyes gazed downward and then back again toward me, he stated, quietly “I thought it might be the end of my family lineage.”

Title: Building Your Family Through Egg Donation
Subtitle: What You Will Want to Know About the Emotional Aspects, Bonding and Disclosure Issues
Jolance Press, 2007.
Author: Joyce Sutkamp Friedeman, Ph.D., APRN, BC, LPCC

Building Your Family Through Egg Donation is a good and helpful book for intended parents considering using an egg donor. This book discusses the emotional aspects of conceiving through third party or collaborative reproduction.

I found the layout of this book to be a bit confusing but the overall content very informative and thought provoking.
