    No apparently Greece is still ok, some clinics just want you to bring cash while others have o/s bank accounts etc so for now everything is still carrying on as usual

    I would be super worried the clinic would stop operating and not be able to pay their staff. Let alone have any services in the hotels/restaurants etc.

    It wouldn't worry me, but if things like that would worry you, then there's also Spain, although that's slightly more expensive than the other 3

    Greece doesn't worry me either (I'm going back in Sept for FET), it will just be even more of a cash economy than they already are. The only thing is I will be more careful about security because of carrying around cash.

    What about South Africa? You can pick your own donor, the fertility clinic in Cape Town gets great reviews, it's a great holiday and is significantly cheaper than the US.

    I was so close to choosing South Africa, I really wanted to go there for the holiday side!

    But mostly for us it was seeing adult donor pictures, and the stim process, they seem to stim lighter in SA than other clinics and hence get less eggs. I kept reading about ladies not getting many frozen embies, and that is important if you want to try for a sibling from the same donor - well for me anyway.

    But I have heard great success stories from all the different clinics, so I guess it all comes down to what you can afford and feel comfortable with.

    @Vixjc I guess you could look at it too that you are helping out their economy because you are still supporting them!

    Did anyone that has done an overseas cycle get really nervous before leaving? We depart in 2 weeks and I have been having horrible dreams about going there and she doesn't produce eggs/nothing fertilizes properly/my immune system goes crazy and nothing implants!

    Sorry another question. If I get the elusive bfp I need to have another Roy d of intralipids. But getting spots for this us difficult cod my immune dr is so busy.

    So I was think g of booking in now in anticipation of getting the bfp and I can always cancel if it's negative - I have done this before on my last transfer last year.

    But I can't remember how many days after a 5day transfer do they make you do the Bt? My estimated et is 25 July and a due date website says 9 August will be beta day, but that wd be 15 days post transfer and 20 days post ovulation, is that right?

    I think all clinics vary slightly on when they require a blood test to be done, the clinic I went to it was 9 dpt or 14 dpo but I've heard some clinics leave it as late as 19 dpo for the blood test

    10 days past 5 day transfer for SA but trust me if you pee on a stick and see a bfp you'll be booking in earlier
