Donor Egg IVF treatment... looks like we've set a date

I've wrangled with options and whether I'm happy or not to a) accept egg donation and b) happy to go abroad.

Thank you to all those ladies who have helped me come to terms with this next step and those who've provided their thoughts and journey experiences about donor egg IVF and having it abroad.

Fingers crossed for everything working. Now that's the next worry for my list! x

Hey @smith15 - just wondered how you were doing x

Clinic and staff were brilliant and being away from home for a little while really helped with stress levels. We were told to rest the day of transfer, but we could travel home the next day.They gave me drugs to prevent uterine contractions for a few days and my husband carried the cases. I was walking like an old lady, though! Terrified I'd do something wrong, but that's just me!! So with hindsight I would take a couple of days afterwards to rest if possible. Positive experience though :) Hope all goes really well for you x

I think we're going to extend our trip a little bit. So that we're there for 10 nights in total. How are you feeling? When did you get back? x

hi, feel happy for you. I'm looking for a clinic abroad too. And it seems to me dangerous a bit. We don't know the culture, peole, language and that makes a barrier between us. one positive side is you can go to the country where people are able to speak English.

I'm afraid of it.

Btw, where is your clinic? Do you know a lot about country you'll fly? Is there safe?

How moch will you pay?

sorry fo too many questions..

best regards from woman who wants to have a baby too

Hello Miranda! It's so lovely to hear of women who go through this too alongside me! We've chosen too. I'm now on the pill awaiting to start in a couple of months. Let's stay in touch xx

Being on the other side we were quite lucky to have 5 shot de ivf package as well. They guarantee the outcome if this is your case also. My clinic refunds money back if those are 5 failures in a row. Actually we passed 3 shots. The 1st - bfn. The 2nd - early miscarriage. But the 3rd transferred was successful :)

Are the patches like the pill? x

Reply

No I have been on the pill leading up to it, then start hormone patches that thicken the lining up ready to receive the embryo so a lot less drugs than our last cycles xx

Ahhhh. I see. I have about 5 weeks of injecting ahead of me from April. Patches sound much nicer! x

Just seems very weird only using patches after so many injections last few goes. Keep in touch xx

All the best with it lovely lady xoxo ❤️

It’s an old post someone commented on earlier... it appears that people are doing the rounds of the old post commenting again. But I start injecting again tomorrow... so I’ll take your luck and wishes! xx

Oh god I’m sorry. Glad I didn’t say too much which may have been upsetting. It is so annoying to have people comment on old posts; it bumps it so it looks like a new post. Good luck with the treatment xoxo
