I have decided to try and access some of my Superannuation funds to enable us to use a donor egg, as at 46, I'm out of my own eggs
My husband and I have an appointment with Lynn Burmeister from Monash IVF on 11th October to discuss our options, but in the meantime we're trying to decide whether we want to try and find a donor here in Australia or go overseas.
For those of you who have decided to use a donor from overseas, may I ask:
Where did you find your donor? What country/clinic?
What made you decide to source an overseas donor rather than someone within Australia?
How quick was the process?
What was the cost in AUD?
Did you have success in getting pregnant?
Lastly, for those of you who may have accessed your Superannuation to fund the process, were you able to add your travel and accommodation expenses into the quote that you provided for DHS or will they only pay out on the medical procedure?
I'm just so confused about what to do. I know that going locally will be less expensive, but I just don't know about the whole process of having to find a donor, build a rapport with her and hope that she likes us enough to want to donate.
Thanks so much for your time and support everyone.
