    Trying to weigh my options here.
    Want to know how much for a FET, How much and the process to transfer embryos to Canada. Need to make a decision.
    The one I did recently was about 6000-7000zar. Can't remember exactly but quite cheap by Australian standards, only $650 or so!

    Congratulations @BB4Me you are pregnant! Thanks for info on big cats at Stellenbosch winery. We might make a day trip there.
    @KMP sounds like you have a beautiful blast on board. Good luck.
    @Tahli - I didn't realise this was your 4th time. I have everything crossed for you that this will be the one.

    All this talk of single transfers working has got me thinking. We were going to put 2 back in but really don't want twins (but would deal with it if we got them). We need to weigh this up.....

    @mummy2016 When considering agency fees and donor egg supply I found Cape Town to be a better (and cheaper ie. half the price) option than in Canada or the States. I have one friend who had one DE cycle in Canada, two have purchased eggs through/gone to the States and four have gone to SA.

    What I liked about SA was that they have a regulated process. In Canada it seems semi-legal, where in SA, it is a legal process. The number of cycles that CFC does instills confidence that the egg donors are treated well and the doctors have it down to a science.

    All prices for SA in $CDN. Flights $1400-$4000 depending time of year. KLM & British Airways have the quickest. Agency fees ~$1500. DE cycle with CFC (CFC is the only clinic I would use in Cape Town) was $6000 in 2015, I have heard that has increased in 2016.

    I am pretty sure that CFC won't do a 'put everything together and ship them off.' (I know they do this in the states for ~$20,000) I went to SA for a fresh embryo transfer. As I had 10 embryos remaining and contracted an infection on the plane home which causes miscarriages I requested that CFC ship my embryos to Toronto.

    After much e-mailing (the lab here was terrible), it took four months to get the embryos here. Things I would recommend:
    - Ensure that your sperm and egg donors are tested for STDs to be Canadian compliant (Hep B Antigen required for Canada, this is not required for donor sperm in SA or the US).
    - Use the embryoscope ($400 in 2015, likely more now). There seemed to be a bump in BFPs in 2015, when CFC started using embryoscopes. My doctor here thinks it is great.
    - Be very specific with CFC on labelling the straws (and specify if you want only one transferred) when they freeze the embryos. My straws are mishmashed: two yellow straws (one with good embryos, one with not-so-good embryos). So I am playing roulette at my next transfer.

    DO NOT USE Cryozoom for delivery from SA to Canada. He promised the world and ghosted when I said it was time to ship. I highly recommend Kynisi. Costa is great and knows the requirements for shipping embryos around the world. Cost to ship is GBP 1800 or $3000.

    My e-mail is in the private message. I don't come on the forum much as after my BFN (and miscarriage) it is hard to read about others getting excited about going or their BFP. Though I would like to thank all the women who have children and posted that it was worth it a few weeks ago. It gave me hope, and made me feel better about this soul sucking process.

    @mummy2016

    FET package fee: 5800 = $510
    Plan fee: 1100 = $97
    35 Gestone pack: 1275 = $112

    I hope this helps!
