This seems to be working really well now and no more arguments because he is involved in some way and we are not just talking completely about the IVF.

    We have picked our donor and she has done her assessment. And I have even just received our dates for Feb and drug protocol so it seems now we just wait.
    That sounds like good advice. I think once we get to the pointy end of the stick DH will get whats happening. At the moment its just talk and paperwork.

    Calling all SA ladies has anyone used Dr M- reproductive immunologist- during a donor cycle in SA? I am having an appointment with him in January and i am wondering what his views are in overseas egg donation and whether he will still help me if he knows we are doing it?

    @ECM1981 im going to see dr m and prob go down ed path. Im aware of others that used him and looking to do ed. Do you mean help as in immune issues or were you looking for someone to assist with scripts etc. Im not too sure on the latter. All the best.

    I used Dr M for my last DE cycle OS. He is fully on board (and a lovely man).

    Hey Outoftime. My DH is detached as well. He's not opposed to it, but isn't prioritising it like I am. I like the way you and your DH shared roles and I think my DH will let me choose any Donor I want, to be honest. He just doesn't really want to be involved in the research and planning side of things. I like the idea of him choosing an element of it like the travel and owning that.
    I won't feel so alone in all this, that way.

I can't read his mind so I just try to put myself in his shoes. We are focusing on waiting for our furbaby to come early next year. That makes nice for a change of conversation.

    When are you looking at beginning the process? We're doing the paperwork and stuff now but will leave the test etc to after the Christmas holidays.
    Offshorechick do you ever feel like your DH is going to get frustrated with the whole decision and what's involved and change his mind? I do. Scares the crap out of me. It's only in little moments that I realise that he truly does want this for us too, despite me very obviously wanting it a whole lot more. Like last night when he dreamt I was 10 weeks pregnant (and winging about the heat, he adds)... Yep that would be me!!

    Default Egg Donation in South Africa #11

    Quote Originally Posted by Maxwellsmum View Post

I have never heard of this before and need to look into donor embryo options now as just got my one and only BFP last month from transfer number 8 with my embryo but today at my 8 week scan it was an empty sack so now I am waiting to miscarry the sack and my specialist Wazza in Brisbane said it is embryo quality. I was thinking Greece but when I saw this it spiked my interest. Would I be able to use them and get Wazza to do my cycles/transfers?
    Hi maxwellsmum! I'm a Wazza girl too.
    A travelling donor is one who is paid to travel to a chosen clinic to undergo treatment. I believe they usually collaborate with set clinics overseas as they don't usually meet the criteria set by clinics here in Australia.
    QFG ethics committee require donors to undergo extensive testing including psych testing that can take some months - travelling donors don't usually allow for this extensive type of testing. I also found when I looked into it that the costs involved with travelling donors (even to overseas clinics) was quite prohibitive - I could do two DE cycles in South Africa for the cost of one with a travelling donor.
    Warren will support you as you work with your chosen clinic overseas. We did two cycles in SA and both times he helped us with immune protocols, scans, medication support etc.

    If you have any questions feel free to PM me.
