antibodies
I was diagnosted with nuclear antibodies and Reumatoid factor
according to my doctor my antibodies they destroy the nuclear of my eggs. I have done 3 IVF, with no positive pregnacy. Know my doctor says I should consider donor eggs, maybe I will have a better chance. But my question is, even if I consider donor eggs, I think my antibodies will still atack the egg, in your oppinion is there any change for me to fall pregnat at all. My doctor says is a very rare situation, I must keep trying, until I have that miracle egg that will survive.
I'm desperate, I don't know if I should try or not, as you know these IVF are very expensive, and with no result.

It seems like the options are to try the donor eggs or to give up and consider adoption. As you say the chances may be quite small. It really depends on how much you are willing to stake on a small chance.
