Hi Gen 72!
What were the costs involved with known egg donors?
I know you pay the group $13k approx.
I assume you would have to pay full price for egg collection $5-6k.
Then your transfer...$2k.
Hi , I sent an email to them & they sent back a breakdown of costings . Took a while to get a response so sent a request twice . It seemed to me to be closer to 35k , I could be wrong but at the time OSED was more economical ..

@Gold Coastie & @ Lucky8 maybe not quite $35k, but I think just over $30k. If you either of you would like my figures let me know.
But OS ED is definitely cheaper...just depends what you want as a whole.
Hi , We are going to Santorini first to have a break as its been a loooooong haul with all this fertility drama & it's well deserved time to take a nice rest before hand . Our costs will be part holiday part ED so it's all relative really . In the end for 25k I will get ED & stay in a lovely island for 5 nights & see a city we've never visited - that was our thought process
Ruth say's I don't need to test for NK cells and its not relevant for me using donor eggs my issue is age. I went to GP to ask for Mother gene test he said there is no evidence that this effects pregnancy. He also said there is no evidence that meds for NK cells do anything. what the! he asked me the name of the meds for it, as if I would know I have never been treated for it. Everytime i asked a question he asked me 10 questions like a quiz, i.e. have you been told the risks for thryoid meds I said yeah insomnia and then he asked and what else, geez im not a gp, you are! Smartass. He does not like the herbalist thats for sure lol Im only going to him as he bulk bills.
Try dr Barabash's rooms . He charged us a few hundred dollars for an ultrasound 3 weeks straight once or twice a week ! Apparently he is very affordable although a well known surgeon . You don't need all this crap ! He will provide you with meds . he is Malvern if that's close Enough to you & works mainly through Cabrini .he is very open minded .
Mthfr - well depends what aspect of it you have . Mines c677t in which folinic acid as opposed to folic acid Is used . My clinician in Greece found out from a professor in Rome to make sure I'm taking folinic supplements as folic cannot be absorbed well in someone with my mutation of mthfr .
Lyn Burmeister put me onto the folinic acid . So I would suggest a bit of ignorance there on that topic !! The test you need is Mthfr , demand you want it regardless .
