Hello ladies I have been reading and following the many journeys on this forum for 2 years. I have myself been on the egg donor trail after several failed IVF attempts over 7 years. We should have done it sooner However,the possibility of success keeps us hoping when we see the BFP's and healthy deliveries reported here. We have been to Cpt for Egg donor IVF 3 times in a year. One fresh cycle that resulted in a MC @exactly 5 months due to amniochorionitis (an infection inside the uterus of unknown origin really) and 2 chemicals from the FET's. We had chosen a lovely 24 year old unproven donor. In 2013, 10 eggs ending with 7 embryos, 2 transferred and 5 frozen. She has donated again this month but I don't know the outcome. Dr LeR was my lovely physician at CFC. We used Nurture for the egg donor, they were more expensive ($2250 USD this years fee) than the others ($1650 for proven) but the experience was positive. This time I am on the hunt with other agencies as well. A bit surprised to see girls on several sites, but I guess 7000 ZAR fee doesn't change for them. How do you feel about proven and unproven donors? We /I will go again at the end of April I hope. Cape Town is lovely anytime of the year and I felt safe exploring on my own.
Our stories vary but we want the same outcome. I admire all of the ''stick-to-it-iveness'' women have when we have a goal. The support on this thread is warm and kind which is needed when the results disappoint. But we pick ourselves up and start the next offense.
Baby dust to all the hopefuls this month in CapeTown
PS not sure yet how to put our info in our ''byline'' :S
