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.
Thanks midnight i have a gp that will help with scripts but i was hoping Dr M still helps you find out problems even if you're doing overseas treatment x
He sure is.. Just sent you a PM xx
I used Dr M for my last DE cycle OS. He is fully on board (and a lovely man).
I won't feel so alone in all this, that way.
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.
