This paper addresses the question of the single-parent project, its paths and unique journeys. At the same time that in them a path many times shared and repeated is glimpsed. The issue has a growing statistical presence worldwide that makes visible social, economic and rights changes on the women’s agenda. The central objective of the writing lies in describing in the first person the circumstances that led Helen to resort to egg donation as a reproductive method and the duels that this journey entails. In short, in Helen’s story, the encounter with the impossibility of the reproductive body itself and the solution offered by medicine is glimpsed in a paradigmatic way; while on another string, the singular and clinical dimension of the subjective decisions for which she will have to answer shines through.
