    I have only booked through qantas which flights were Emirates the whole way. Found it easier to have all connecting with the same airline saves picking up your bags at the lay over. Also Emirates are amazing to fly with wouldn't fly with anyone else after having fly with them.

    We are flying with Emirates from Brisbane in May. But I think the 1st leg defaults to Qantas.

    We have a 6 hour wait time in Dubai though so I would imagine that is a comfortable buffer should there be any delays from the Qantas end.

    It was simply the more economical option as Emirates had a special between xmas and NY.

    The flight from Brisbane is definitely Emirates. If you're concerned, check with airline or booking agent.

    We are flying Etihad as we normally do to Europe every year (I travel a lot for work) and fortunate to always travel business. We're actually going via Milan this trip as was quicker than the 9 hour stopover for the direct flight from Abu Dhabi to Athens (flight gets to AUH at 11pm)

    So here's a question. What actually happens when you arrive? Is someone kind enough to do a short step by step guide on timeline when you're there? (Going to Dr Nikos)

    Default Hi!

    Congrats Wetsetter! Awesome news!!! Another one for Iakentro! Hi Vixjc! Hi everyone!

    I have been absent from commenting on the site for a while... but have been keeping up to date - so many newbies! Our plans for Greece were significantly delayed which was quite upsetting... I'm hoping it will happen this year. DHs sperm results from the FISH test were not flash... which means we need extra procedures and extra costs. We needed to change from Athens to Thessaloniki where our clinic has more facilities that allow a range of genetic tests on sperm and embryos.

    As a broad comparison, I'm wondering if anyone has their TOTAL costs in Aussie dollars for their whole experience in Greece, ie. Flights & accomodation for 2 people in Athens for a week, plus drugs and egg transfer/clinic costs? We are still saving up and am allowing roughly $12,000 plus extra for genetic tests... I know it can vary a lot due exchange rates, etc but any comments appreciated. :-)

    I know that one of mine (the successful one) was all up approx $13,000 ish - but I wasn't being careful about what I spent, and I take monster doses of drugs, I was using progesterone pessaries that in Aus were costing around $50 a day because I needed 8/day in the first trimester (I ran out of the nicer cheaper Greek ones). These days I use the progesterone injection bought in Greece - cheaper and less gross :-)

    The exchange rate was more favourable then though.

    Default Return Flight to Athens

    Hi kategc and Ozrainey, I just checked our itinerary and you're right it's Emirates from Brisbane - Athens.

    We have a leg with Qantas coming back. It's labelled "Qantas by Emirates". I can't recall why Emirates was using Qantas for the return.

    Hi CherryCP

    These are my sums if that's helpful.



    Hystogram – 100 ish

    Blood tests – 70

    Blood tests – 60.35

    Semen tests – 144.70

    __________________________________________________ ____________

    Appointment with specialist– 130

    Specialist handling fee fee – 1000

    Other treatments leading up to Greece - $600-800 (this is a guess. My IV drip alone will be $400.)

    Return flights from Brisbane to Greece $3864

    Accommodation in Greece $100 per day for 14 days = $1400 (Hoping this will only be about $70-$80 per day once we book it)

    Food $60 per day for 14 days = 840 (Another guess)

    Treatment cost for donor egg/transfer in Greece 6,500 Euros = proxy $10k

    Plus whatever meds we need post transfer.

    So total for us (if you don't count our personal genetic testing) for Specialist fees, treatment leading up to leaving to prepare my body, flights, accommodation, food, is $17,770 ish Australian dollars.

    We are going to stay in an apartment so that we have cooking facilities etc. I have a link for super reasonable places.

    Flights and accommodation will vary greatly depending on what time of year you go, what type of accommodation you choose and how long the clinic you are with, needs you to be in Athens for.

    Hi,
    I have been advised to stop my Utrogestan and Progynova as of today (12 weeks). Did anyone else just stop completely or did you gradually lower doses to wean off them?
