    Floppy my DH is Thai and looks quite Khmer. When we were living in Thailand & look at ED we found most donors were lighter skinned/Chinese-Thai because that was the preference of the Thai customers (egg donation & surrogacy is HUGE in Thailand although people normally don't talk about it). The staff at the clinics thought we were very weird because we were happy to accept any colour, they kept telling my poor husband that 'whiter is better'

    But....several of the clinics did have some darker-skinned donors on their books, so it's a matter of asking around.

    Have you tried New Life Thailand? They are a reputable clinic with practices located in many countries. They also have one of the largest egg donor databases in the world and I found them very well priced.

    Personally we had success in the Czech Republic however the donors there might not meet your physical requirements. For anyone else reading, we had a great experience in the Czech Republic at a clinic in Zlin. It is very well priced (pricing is on par with South Africa) however it is safer and you get a European holiday!

    The cost factor was important for us too - for those willing to use a Thai donor - rather than flying in a western donor - full cost for the initial donor cycle & recipient cycle was between $5,000 and $9,000 depending on the clinic.

    Hi there, it seems like this is the right thread for me. Alice your story is so very inspiring for me, and is leading me to think that Zlin might be the right clinic, if I choose to go ahead with this. Naturally, coming from Aus, Thailand is really appealing, but the consistency of the reports coming from Zlin is encouraging. It does sound safer. I am anxious for my child though, or future child, as I so would want him or her to be able to contact her or his donor. I guess these are all the factors that come into play. If someone had an absolutely wonderful report of New Life Thailand, and of flying their donor in from Europe, that would be great, but I just don't seem to reading them anywhere. It seems very tricky to find the right ivf clinic in Thailand from here. It's an important decision to get as right as possible, that's for sure. Thank you to all ladies who are contributing to this thread, it is helpful.

    Hi Tiggylig, these were some of our concerns too, we just couldn't find enough, or any really, reports of people flying Caucasian donors to Thailand. There are plenty of positive experiences we found of Australians using caucasian donors in India at SCI, however this was combined with surrogacy. As we didn't need a surrogate we didn't really want to go to India.

    We thought long and hard about the ups and downs of anonymous donation. We know information about our donor but don't know who they are. We will be open and honest with our children and intend to take them back to Zlin in their teens if they want to go and will do anything we can to help them if they want to know more. Plus, European holiday! Flying a donor from the EU works out to close to the same as if you just went there anyway! They also do egg donation in Spain and countries like Georgia, The Ukraine and Russia. I'm not sure what their laws are regarding anonymity, especially in the east, as I've seen donor photo listings.

    Sorry ladies, my phone changed my name to Tight Lug. That sounds very suspect - a cross between tight hug and something else.

    The idea to travel to Europe for DE has been with me a number of years. It was always my plan B, if I didn't conceive through ivf with my own eggs. And then I did. It was our seventh try - five fresh two frozen and budda bing budda bang along came our boy. I absolutely thought that one was enough - but then out of the blue, three years in, and it seems I have a new dream. It is completely unexpected, since I am now, well, old! For a mum I guess, I don't know. I am forty five. I shall see how I feel in a couple of months. But the amazing thing is I saw my specialist, who I so respect, and he was supportive of the idea and will help from this end. That certainly tipped the balance. And Alice, it was really interesting, he was opposed to the idea of flying Caucasian donors to Thailand because of the risk to the donor should she over stimulate. There are questions then, about who is responsible for her once she gets back on a plane should there be a problem. It made me feel even clearer about the direction I wish to take. As did your post.

    Love TIGHT LUG xx

    Default some info on THailand

    Hi there,

    I've been lurking in the background also Alice to find info on Bub hub on Thailand Egg donors. Hope you don't mind if I join in! I have found some great information from other forums.

    We are also looking at the Thailand option due to it's closeness and also seeking a donor that our child to be may be able to contact when they're older if they wish to. Its simply asking the Agent and they will ask the donor.
    Thailand has medical clinics equal in quality and expertise as our clinics here. In another forum Caucasian Egg donors have flown there to donate.
    In Thailand you can get Thailand egg donors or Caucasian Egg donors. They come from the Ukraine, South Africa to name a few. The Caucasian option is more expensive it seems.

    I have done some research and found from other ladies who have donated their eggs their..'All Ivf' in Bangkok was the clinic they used and they spoke highly of them.
    The agents for Egg donors I have viewed are 'New Life'...big data base of Thai & Caucasian. Simply email them for password to view online database.
    'Cathie Sanchez' who also does other countries and 'Megan from Thailand Surrogacy'.
    I am sure there are others but yet to discover!.
    I here there are Agents like the above that may be slightly dearer than going direct to the clinic by a few thousand $$...but they co-ordinate everything for you and keep in touch. And there are like co-ordinators that work with the clinic that charge the same as the clinic prices (the clinic pays them a fee)

    That's it for now! we are still researching!. Alice let us know where you decide to go.
