    I am one of Wazza's patients but he is soon on holidays. Wondering if any Perth Gals had had an endometrial scratch and or lipoidal wash in Perth.. Done by a specialist locally.. Rather than flying interstate to have done by their regular FS. I want to transfer my last embie next month but have decided to have this procedure to increase my chances.. But looking at local FS as an sick of all the travel.

    Hooray, preferred donor says she still wants to do it. We're still looking at July 5 to head over to SA, if the donor's screening goes to plan.

    I transferred a bucketload of money to SA today via international bank transfers (CFC and donor agency). Any ideas on how long it will take to clear? Maybe 3-5 days?

    There is a lot of 'hurry up and wait' in this process, isn't there?
    Not as bad as IVF though :-)

    What dose are you starting on @ECM1981? You may get diarrhoea for the first 3 days or so which is why taking it at night can be helpful, as can starting it on a weekend so you're close to a loo! As you know, I was pretty ill but that's because I started on 1000mg. Once I halved it and started taking it in the morning (Gwenyth's advice) I tolerated it much much better. Good luck!
    Thanks so much for the Zoladex advice @Itwilhappen, much appreciated. I rang my FS today to see if she could prescribe it. I'm just waiting to hear back. I love your tip about getting someone to inject it who is experienced! Where does it actually get injected into?

    Looks like we might be there at the same time!
    Yes, I'm really struggling with the waiting for everything! Just want to get it happening. I've only just got all our test results back, was waiting for a while to get them all so hopefully can now get on track. Our donor should be having all her testing now. Hopefully!
    Good luck with your donors screening.

    @AdelMum how exciting! Its only 7 weeks away, for some reason i thought i had heaps of time but i really dont!! Is this your first time? Have you booked flights and accom?
    @kylie764 you could ask Dr Saba. He does my intralipids and he was a Dr at Fertility place but now has his own ob/gyn in Duncraig.
    @Tahli i just took my first diabex. I took half just to see how i go. I will take half for a few days and then bump it up. What do u think? I hope i dont get the runs!!

    Thanks @ECM1981 ... will give him a call tomorrow and find out.
    @Tahli =... I have begged a local fertility clinic to scan me... they did and only charged me $75 as it was the nurse who did it. Was a scan only for follicles and lining thickness.. not the whole kit. I have also been to Global Diagnostics (Kwinana clinic in WA) and they were a bulk billing clinic...so cost me nothing. Did have students watching and took twice the time though. Only a handful of their clinics bulk bill.

    @ECM1981 I'd do 500mgs for a week before upping it to 1000mgs. But you know your body best and how you're tolerating it. Due to the appetite suppressing effect you'll be buying less groceries that's for sure! I'm going to start back on 500mgs this Friday so I have the long weekend to cope with any possible side-effects.
    @kylie764 I wonder if there's a bulk billing clinic in Melb? Because I have lining issues I'd like to get multiple scans before the next transfer but at $165 a pop it soon starts to add up.
    Good news from CFC. Gestone is back in stock!!

    Just wanted to let others know that it is possible to go to SA for a shorter duration than the 12 to 14 days if you wish. I left my 18 month old DD home so wanted to minimise the time away. I had my scan and bloods on Day 14 in Australia.. Got the all clear to start as bloods and scan were good and egg pick up went well. I bought 4 days of Gestone in oz at $30 per day.. Flew out that night. Had only booked flights when my donors egg pick up was scheduled. All up.. 2 overnight flights.. 7 nights in Cape Town.. Though could have travelled earlier by at least one day.. But I did book this as and was lucky as was asked to show return journey at the airport on checking in on Qantas.

    Hope this info helps others. Organising the timing of all this does drive you crazy at times.
