Tigger - My decision to go to Cape Town for donor eggs is due to it being almost impossible to find a local donor. Also the process is as little as 3 months from choosing a donor, receiving your treatment plan and making the trip over there. Financially all up it's about $15,000 and my husband and I (& DS) went over in June 2012 for 2 weeks and had such a wonderful holiday in conjunction with my treatment. Unfortunately I came home with a chemical due to my immune issues. We were lucky enough to have 2 frozen embryos so I'm going back in 1 week (on my own) for a final attempt. I am now on the most aggressive immune treatment so hopefully this time it will be successful.
Cape Fertility Clinic have a 70% pregnancy rate for a fresh transfer and 50% for frozen (I'm having 2 transferred so a higher increase for me). They are very strict on the quality of transferring and freezing hence their high success rates. Believe it or not there are plenty of Australian women that go over there for donor eggs such as myself. I'm currently chatting & supporting & receiving support on two threads with soooooooo many lovely women doing exactly what I'm doing. Most are coming back pregnant and fullfilling their long awaited dreams of finally achieving a pregnancy.
