ECM, sounds like we had a similar experience at CFC. I also found it very impersonal, no one knew who I was, and the issue with Dr W not reading my file. Just got an email to say he is retired now and we need to choose another Dr for our transfer, so hopefully the next one will pay more attention.
I'm 37, but because of endo etc egg quality is a problem for me, but it's also not the full story. My feeling with CFC is they are just focussed on the egg quality and not much else. We have to be our own best advocates. You'd think for the money we are spending they could do a little better though! When are you planning to head back to SA?
I do appreciate the opportunity to access this technology though, and am so grateful to our donor. Am also grateful we have the resources to be able to go to SA.
I also think the Australian system is cruel towards women with serious fertility issues - there are so few real options to access donor eggs or adopt here - makes life much harder for us all. I've found this experience very isolating, which is why these forums are such a blessing.
