    Default IVF over 40 #22

    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.

    Default IVF over 40 #22

    First transfer we had two hatching blasts which failed to implant then the CT Dr suggested testing a few more things, found I had high ANA, went on an immune protocol and transferred the last two frosties which were lesser quality and now 14 weeks with twins.

    First donor was thru my old IVF clinic btw, 34 yrs old, 5 embies, no luck. Second donor was 24 and from Cape Town.

    Did you have any concerns regarding the number of eggs produced by your donor? I know that i am guaranteed 7 eggs at WEB and would be fearful of less than that in SA?

    Yes, I was definitely concerned because my donor had never done an EPU.
    No guarantees either but I'd recommend going with a proven donor. Proven as in proven EPU or pregnancies, not proven because they have their own children - which also gets them listed as 'proven'. Plus if your donors EPU doesn't go well they have an egg bank that you can utilise for free. One of the CT ladies had to use it not long ago as she only got a few from her donor so from memory they gave her 5 from the bank and fertilised both lots. I would confirm the egg bank guarantee with them though as there was nothing about it in all my documentation.
    My donor was only proven because she had her own child and if I had to do it again I'd choose someone based on their EPU's. Having said that my donor provided us 12 embies and we ended up with 4 really good quality blasts which were probably all going to be babies I reckon if my high ANA hadn't destroyed those first two. I'm happy to give you her details if you want to use her

    @Julie Malooley would you mind sharing clinic info with me as well. I am looking into donor embryos and trawling my options for next year @Fudge09 I am also looking into DE I found out a bit about travelling donors today which may or may not be worth looking into. The price is 26000 Aus $ but the donors are coming to Australia which means any frozen embryos stay and can be transferred in Aus. I have to speak to my clinic to get further info next week. I am thinking of using my super to pay for it as I am broke now as well. It is a hard call to make but if I can access my super for it then I will do it now while I can still have babies or try to have them with the help of science and I will worry about the super situation and the fact that I spent it all when I am 100 and they allow me to have it. AFM my 8 week scan yesterday showed an empty sack or a blighted ovum I think they call it. I was too upset to call my clinic yesterday and discuss it so I just stopped my meds last night and am hoping to bleed soon by myself but am not feeling it. In fact my b.oobs hurt big time today and I am starting to think I might need to ask about them about a d and c or something to help move things along before we go away for our Christmas holiday.

    @Maxwellsmum I'm so sorry to hear about your blighted ovum. You must be devastated. I hope your FS and clinic are very supportive and can help you out before Christmas as needed. Thinking of you. Hugs.
