    Default Egg Donation in South Africa #11

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.

    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

    Thanks ladies for all the info. Overseas travel scares me big time. I went to Canada once and the flights nearly killed me but I guess at this point we just can't keep trying our own embryos as the number of fails we have had really speak for themselves plus Wazza really know his stuff do if he says my embryos are duds then well they are duds. 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.

    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.
