    Thanks @Chiefsgirl and @midnite01
    That's news to me about Capetown. Do they go there because its cheaper or to find donors?
    Chiefsgirl can I ask why you choose Hawaii ove Capetown when it seems like it costs the same as doing it here in Oz?
    I appreciate the help. I wasn't sure if anyone went overseas.
    Is the quality there as good as here?

    @Webified we needed donor eggs and wanted an anonymous donor so had to go overseas.

    my DH chose Hawaii as he liked the coordinator, we could see adult and childhood photos and had detailed medical history. They had a high success rate and it seemed that the donors produced more eggs than cape town.

    I wouldn't read too much into our results though as we had an extraordinary result and transferred two blasts and ended up with 18 in the freezer. I am currently pregnant with one.

    I would say for straight up ivf you are best to stay here and get Medicare rebate on your cycle.

    If you go down the donor egg route then there are many different places you can go, many ladies on here have been to Cape Town and Greece too.

    Thanks Chiefsgirl and congratulations!! I take your advice with Medicare and staying here. Perhaps we might try one last time here and if no luck then go overseas and use donor eggs. What was the medical service like there? Did you feel safe and well looked after? Im assuming that you had the embryo transfers done there, correct? Im so happy that it has worked well for you.

    @leyshoja I've never had that happen to me either & I'm on 25mg a day. It could be the fish oil.

    RPA in Sydney is very cheap if you are talking about still using your own eggs. Or donor eggs, there's just a few months wait list.

    Webified - when you have a chance, read through this thread http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...rica-10/page27


    You will find that the overseas option for DONOR EGGS is a relatively common thing and as someone who has been to Cape Town 3 times, I can tell you it is safe, easy, professional and IMO much 'nicer' than my experiences doing OE IVF in Aus.

    When you start looking into going overseas it can seem overwhelming but it is actually quite easy and South Africa is relatively cheap (2 week holiday including the Donor Egg IVF was $15k for me - the cycle and Donor Eggs cost about $8500).

    Good Luck with whatever you choose. ~

    @Webified we felt very safe in Hawaii. Yes I had embryo transfer there and they have all my frozen embryo's. I can't bring them back due to snot laws in Australia.

    The level of care we received was great. It was a small clinic but has been going for 25years and the fs were well known.

    @Webified, completely agree with this statement. Cape Town is very professional and we felt safe there. Very fast to get a donor and have your cycle underway too but only go there for donor egg otherwise it won't be cheaper.
