They work with World Egg Bank...so found a donor i like there but with the exchange rate it works out to about $24,000 for 7 eggs...

    No idea what to do or where to start. After 8 rounds of ivf we really are at the end financially this time. Any advice ladies?
    So sorry to hear that @Fudge09 I've not heard very good things about the world egg bank. @JulieMalooley did a WEB cycle if I remember correctly. I don't think it has very good success rates? My counselor warned me off it.

    I found my egg donor on Egg Donation Australia, if you go along to meet ups and are active on the site it may not take you very long to find someone. I just had to cover her costs, days off work etc.

    Other than that maybe you could find an FS or a GP who will help you go through a clinic in SA?

    @Bongley my fs also told me the stories about WEB but said he was aware it was because they were not using vitrification to freeze eggs in the past. He said that this has now changed and a colleague in melbourne is using them at monash. He rang his colleague who said he would be happy to use them these days as they are now greatly improved and they are having success with them. I just feel so torn...this will be our last shot.

    Ps my clinic will not work with me going o/s

    @Fudge09 you may be able to get everything you need from your GP. You just need to find out if they will prescribe you synarel and progynova I think. Stuff your clinic if they won't help. No @Bongley I didn't use WEB, my donor was organised through my old IVF clinic.

    Default IVF over 40 #22

    Ps my first cycle was an egg freeze with vitrification and the final defrost/fertilisation rate is definitely lower than fresh eggs. From my 10 eggs I got only 2 good embies. I averaged about 50% with all my other EPU cycles. Could have just been my batch though..

    Because eggs are only 1 cell, there is a higher chance of damage to that one cell during freeze or defrost as opposed to freezing embies which are multi cells and if one or two get damaged it won't affect the embie.

    I can't recommend SA more highly @Fudge09. And if you aren't successful first time it's around $3000 to go back and transfer your frosties.
