    Hi kitkats, I just checked.... Greek legislation stipulates 1 to 3 embryos can be transferred.

    I am going in March and I plan on having two DE out in. That is all the doctor has ever suggested as well.

    In April '14 I had 3 put back (entirely my choice after discussing the options) and then had a singleton ... My understanding was that over 40 you could do 3 and 4 but I didn't look further into it given that was what a Greek/Australian FS told me the year before based on his knowledge of his mates clinic.

    Thanks ladies. So confusing. Im sure once im there and discuss it with my specialist it will be clearer. It's a fine line. I'm worried about multiples but then I'm scared to end up with none. Such a big decision.

    New Law regarding the number of embryos transferred in Greece
    by Chrysa Karakosta, Embryologist


    At the end of September 2014 the national regulatory body of assisted reproduction in Greece brought out a new Law regarding the number of embryos that can be transferred according to certain parameters (FEK 2589/29-9-2014).


    The Law specifically states:


    In women under the age of 35 using their own eggs, it is permitted to transfer one or two embryos.
    In women over 35 and under 40 years of age using their own eggs, it is permitted to transfer up to two embryos in the first and second treatment cycles. Three embryos are allowed in their third cycle and any following treatment cycles.
    In women 40 years of age using their own eggs, it is permitted to transfer up to three embryos.
    In women over the age of 40 using their own eggs, it is permitted to transfer up to four embryos.
    **In the case that the embryos have developed from the use of donor eggs, it is permitted only to transfer up to 2 embryos.**
    It is also obligatory to sign a consent stating which scenario one belongs in and how many embryos are to be transferred prior to embryo transfer.

    @Kitkats if you don't want multiples at all only transfer one, you shouldn't transfer more than your willing to carry really, I know it's a very personal decision, but if your adamant you don't want multiples at all, and keep in mind, even transferring one can result in a twin pregnancy

    Twins even triplets would be a blessing. Im thinking more of the quads etc. I guess I've answered my own question. No more than 3.

    We're here currently. My bit of advice is to make sure you visit other locations and do trips. Dont think Athens is the type of place you could stay for too long but the food is sensational.

    There is a Tavern just off Arkadias which Dr Nikos will tell you about which is fantastic. Literally 100m from the clinic. Hope everyone is happy and doing well whichever phase of the journey that you are on.

    We tried three banks before we were able to exchange AUD to Euro. Alpha bank would exchange others wouldn't. Also a lot of restaurants are only accepting cash not credit card for payment.

    I have a query for ladies who've been to Greece... I am wondering how close to your departure to Greece did you hear from the clinic about your donor? ie. the donor had been selected/finalised, etc. We will be leaving in 6 weeks... so I'm wondering if I should be worried.
