    Malitek I don't think you will be covered by any Aus policy that I'm aware of...there may be specific medical tourism insurance policies though? Because a transfer is so minimally invasive I've never bothered looking into it, but the TESA process is a bit more involved I guess. I have a friend who is going over in Oct who has the same problem, in not sure she has thought about this either.
    I assume it's twilight sedation for the TESA procedure?

    Charlie- I did 5 cycles myself BUT was very realistic and said to my FS that I wanted to move to DE after second cycle. I got pregnant first cycle from one egg, one embryo, but was blighted.

    Second cycle nothing.

    It's emotionally exhausting and stressful trying yourself but you need to be ready to use DE.

    For me I just wanted the best chance of a healthy child (which statistically was not real for me).

    The DE journey was stress free and a total joy in comparison. I'd recommend it but you need to decide when you're ready.

    With real statistical chances of 1% using your own eggs vs 50-60% with donor, the time $ and energy involved for me I wished I hadn't listened to my FS and just walked away and done what my heart told me was right, from the beginning.

    You'll know what's right for you and when.

    I was ready after 2 cycles, my husband wasn't so we did 6 cycles and after our miscarriage we both had enough. We still had one blast left and couldn't face using it and later donated it for research. If you're comfortable with using DE I'd say go for it now - those stats are right. Seriously though no one can answer that question for you, its such a personal thing.
    I'm sorry your cycle ended so badly, you see LB don't you? You'll find she will be pretty honest if you ask her whether to move on now or not.

    Hi everyone. It's been a long while since I've been on the forum but I thought this might be of interest to you and wanted to make sure you knew about it. I can't think of another group of people that might have relevant informed views to provide. http://consultations.nhmrc.gov.au/pu...roductive-tech

    @Charlie74 yeah I always had my wtf appointments booked ahead of time either for a scan or a wtf depending on how the cycle worked out. You can just call your nurse (or they will likely call you...I seemed to have erased a lot of that info from my brain now!). I felt the same as you regarding just wanting to parent and honestly I know E is the kid I'm meant to have. If your happy to do it, move on and go with the odds - its a far more positive experience than over 40's own egg ivf that's for sure.

    Hi Charlie,
    We did 6 stimulated cycles and had 2 miscarriages. We had a choice to do one more cycle here but we decided to invest those $ where the chances are higher. We have only just started our journey for egg donation in Cape Town and I am so thankful for all the amazing ladies who are sharing information here. We felt ready to take this next step and are looking forward to starting the egg donation process.

    Hoping4best thanks for that. I will make a submission for sure. I have already raised issues with the Fertility Society of Australia. I'll have to juggle this with everything else and bubs due by deadline.
