    Sorry to read you've had a miscarriage love...
    there is The World Egg Bank option through Monash IVF in Melbourne if you're not keen to travel overseas - when I looked into it a couple of years ago it was about 23k all up for 6 frozen eggs imported from the USA. At that stage Monash were the only ones in Australia with authority to import eggs.
    As Blinky said, this cost to me was prohibitive but it does save a lot of the time faffing around with travel etc. if that's not your thing

Still waiting to start my miscarriage as only stopped my thousands of support meds last night but that is another story. Might need to look at a D and C ?????next week to get things moving along. So ****ty but hey such is life.
    Actually Monash seem to be in Qld too.

    Seems that QFG are running a 'trial' next year with the travelling donor and Warren is FS overseeing it. It isn't cheap approx. $26k, almost works out cheaper to go OS for DE have a holiday and then be able to go back for FET. And of course because it is in Australia it isn't anonymous, upside is your embryos are here for FET.

    But it is another option.

    Happy Monday everyone!
    Does anyone know if you can request AMH tests done of donors before you reserve them or commit to a particular clinic. I have contacted CFC and had email discussions with Dr LaRoux and Karin - however only sending in their medical questionnaire today and haven't get collected all the medical tests for DH & myself yet...
    Wanting to get a jump ahead by testing my two top picks' AMH before committing.
    Cheers ladies

    From my vague memory the AMH donor testing is only about $100.

    Does any-one know if any of the CFC FSs believe in immune issues/protocol. I know Dr W doesn't and he's my normal FS but he'll be away for my next transfer in Jan, so I was wondering who to go with next. I'm thinking Dr M as she's so lovely but I need my next FS to support a strong immune protocol.

    Yes you can get AMH tested. It's well worth it in my opinion. It saved us from using a donor that likely would have given us very little in the way of eggs. It's not very expensive. From memory a little more than we pay here, but not more than $100.

    Dr W is my FS too and I'm also going in Jan for a transfer on Jan 27. He recommended Dr M as his replacement. She administered my intralipid last time I was there and she was lovely. Dr W always supported my protocol even if he doesn't believe in it personally so I assume she will too. I just plan to do the same thing this time that worked last time.

    Wow, @MrsErinR if I continue to get bfn's over the next few days I'll be heading back for my remaining embryos over the Australia Day long weekend too! Do you have frozen embryos from your daughters successful cycle?
    Cool, I'll go with Dr M. I initially had email communication with her and she was so lovely, plus seeing her in the waiting room welcoming patients she seems so warm.

    Thanks Tahli how are you feeling? Do you know if you can get it done before 'committing' as such to a donor?
