I'm not through a FS for this I just went to my gp for everything to go over. After doing 27 cycles previously it is just piece of mind for me. I'll only have a couple extra blood tests.
Gestone is a great way to get your progesterone though so try not to worry.
Lisa that's great news, the waiting is the worst part for me so I hear you on that!
Does anyone know the rules on donation in sa.
You know, how often one can donate and maximum donations, I thought I read that this was quite limiting ensuring that people are altruistic in donating or they can't really make a living off of it? The rules I think in wa are there is a 3 month cooling off period then 3? Month quarentine then they can only donate to max 5 families including their own, and obviously no payment. Just wondering I guess whilst waiting for my donor to have her tests !! Waiting ... Waiting !
That's the hardest part of IVF I reckon. Alllllllll the waiting
Fern girl - I don't remember seeing the 'rules' laid out for DE but the worldwide professional practice for DS is 5 successful donations so it makes sense the same would apply for DE.
Yes that waiting period befor Cape Town is awful as you feel so useless. Then comes the 2ww. Then comes the HCG tests wait. And then the ultrasound wait... Never ending!
Good luck - I have just bought my first Packet of Elevit morning sickness pills (ooh I feel sick ALL DAY) so the waiting is worth it !
5 times apparently with live births so of course that relies on recipients completing paperwork after giving birth.
"According to South African law, an egg donor may have no more than five live born children from their donated gametes. Therefore as a donor you are allowed to donate more than once."
