Hi when we went our fertility center was in Thailand, but now i believe they don't go there anymore. We also used Cathie, but for the cost and what she does i cant see how she charges that much. I thought i had to go through her and if i wasn't under that assumption i would off bypassed her and communicated directly with the center. However i don't know how easy it is communicating with the centers. The center we used not all the workers understood English 100% so on the day there was almost a mix up as to how many embryos were to be transferred, but luckily they left paperwork lying around and we realised just in time. The donor agency had a lot of donors to choose from and they supplied us with there information that is available. The experience is expensive however i don't think it is too expensive compared to others that i looked into, they are however like any other business to make money. We didn't have any problems with Genevieve however her manner in emails may come across rudely at times. That is the problem when you mainly rely on emails to communicate, however you can also contact her via skype. On the up side i did fall pregnant and am due soon so i cant complain, we were not let down by our donor and she was there at the correct times. Also if you have been doing IVF for a while i don't see it as too stressful as you already know what to expect it is just the added problems of booking flights and finding your way around new countries but since we have traveled in the past i didn't find the experience stressful only the communicating via emails trying to get everything sorted and understood before leaving.
