Just starting our journey of finding someone to donate egg
The process can happen quite quickly if your donor is available (you can be in Cape Town in as little as 8 weeks!.) and has no issues in her testing (medical and psychological).
The process in Cape Town follows the same/similar timeframe
Day 1 - arrive in Cape Town
Day 2 - lining scan (you) at clinic
Day 5 - EPU for your donor (subject to how they are responding to treatment). DH (or sperm donor) does his bit.
Day 10 - Tx day.
Day 12 - fly home.
You do have to allow/be prepared for some delays sometimes. With our first cycle our donor responded as per the schedule. With the second donor , she took a little longer to respond so the EPU was delayed by 5 days. (We had allowed for this by planning a 17 day trip - it was a holiday after all 😁)
With our first cycle we selected her in December and were in Cape Town in March. This cycle resulted in a BFN. (MFI and immune issues were the cause)
With our second trip we booked our donor in July and travelled in January. The donor had been available to do an earlier cycle (September/October) but we needed the extra time to sort my immune issues out, get $$ and annual leave sorted.
Cape Town has heaps of good accommodation options and is easy to get around whether on public transport, taxi or hire car. (It's a real tourist city.)
The first time we used Air BnB (https://www.airbnb.com.au) and got an apartment in the CBD.
The second time we stayed here (http://m.atlanticaffair.co.za) because the apartment we stayed at previously wasn't available.
We also made the trip somewhat of a holiday as their are only three appointments at the clinic over the two week stay. So on our first trip we stayed here (http://www.inverdoorn.com) and did a safari. On both trips we also stayed here (http://www.spier.co.za). The first time for just two nights. We loved it some much we stayed 4nights on the second trip.
If you have any more questions feel free to visit all of us (friendly bunch) over in the donor Egg threads. Heaps of great support, advice and tips/tricks.
