Brianna & Rebeca

Our advice to others is that what may be perfect for one person may not be perfect for another. Decide what’s important to you and search, but be realistic as the “perfect” human doesn’t exist.

We live outside of Atlanta, Georgia, in a town called Grantville. My wife works at the Atlanta airport as an aviation maintenance technician, and I work remotely as a premium auditor. We have been married since 8-18-18. We began trying at home with a known donor shortly after we got married. But after a year of trying and receiving the diagnosis of diminished ovarian reserve, we decided to move onto IVF in Feb of 2020. We started our IVF journey at the end of May/beginning of June. We faced a few challenges on the way, as I was 32 at the time, and my amh levels came back at .355, which is pretty low for someone my age. I was devastated, but at least I knew why I hadn’t become pregnant yet. I was extremely discouraged, but after a lot of self-reflection and acceptance, I was ready to move forward with IVF. We went into it with a very open mind and tried to enjoy the journey as much as possible. My wife supported me the most throughout the process. Hands down. It was so important to me that she be very involved in picking the donor, so I let her pick her top three, and we narrowed it down from there. We heard about Xytex through a friend that had used y’all, and I had briefly looked into it before. We liked Xytex the most because we could view an assortment of photos. When looking for our donor, blood type, height, education, etc. were most important. Our advice to others is that what may be perfect for one person may not be perfect for another. Decide what’s important to you and search, but be realistic as the “perfect” human doesn’t exist.
