    Hi all, can I ask what the expected number of eggs is for Cape Fertility? I've read that they aim for around 12? I know everyone is different and have seen others get quite high numbers through reading the thread.
    Our chosen donor has previously gotten around 12 the last 2 times she's donated.
    My only concern is that we have male factors as well and wondered if I should have been looking for someone who gets more.
    Thanks :-)

    @HB13 How many blasts did her recipients get on each cycle? How many did they transfer and how many did they freeze? If I had male factor issues then I'd personally be looking for more than 12 eggs as the starting point. And if you were open to it, I'd look at putting a few eggs aside to use with DS to be safe. Good luck!

    Hi Tahli,
    Thanks for your response. She had 5 and 6 blasts at day 5. I don't know how many got frozen or transferred or if those numbers were after transfer. We have already booked her in so I probably shouldn't be questioning now! I suppose I wondered if they ever up the drugs a bit to aim for more if there are known sperm issues. Or if their standard is to get 12ish every time?
    When we initially read 12, with that many blasts I was really happy compared to what we used to get! But have read of people getting quite a lot more. I know it's quality versus quantity. She has also had 1 child of her own.

    I'm sorry, I don't know the answer to upping the stims. I know when I tried to ask anything about my donors meds I was politely shut down!! You can only ask the question I guess, just reiterate to them your sperm issues and that you're hoping for good quality egg numbers.

    @HB13 my first donor gave us 11 embryos in total so 2 transfered and 9 to freeze. Im not sure what the complete collection was, they never told me that. The donor we have chosen now has had good retrievals with 8-10 blasts. I hope she can do the same again for us. Just about to call CFC to dind out whats going on with our timing

Anyway his number is on the website so i rang it thinking it was the clinic. Whoopsie but at least now you know he is not retired so now to try the number he gave me.

    @ECM1981 I'm glad to hear it's a sabbatical and not 'retirement' as my nurse told me! How did you get on lastnight...did you find out what's happening with your donor?

    Default Ready to Go :)

    Flights booked with SAA arriving in CT on 5 June, scan on 6 June CFC. Can anyone recommend an accupuncturist in CT?

    Just trying to sort out accomodation looking at an apartment in the De Waterkant area as it is much cheaper than V&A as we need 2 bedrooms as we have a 6 year old daughter.

    Love reading about people journey. I am doing an immune protocol with my Adelaide fertility specialist haven't told CFC yet. This is my first cycle with them. Do you actually get to talk to them or Skype with them prior to the first scan? Just seems odd to put so faith into a Dr I have never even talked to.

    $26 000 whoa crazy.

    CFC well under $10k for full cycle with donor and FET about $500. Even blood test there is only $17. Freezing is super cheap too in comparison with QFG.

    I personally preferred the intimacy of CFC and the genuine friendlinesd of the doctor there compared with QFG in Brisbane (who treat you like a number and always have issues with accounts). The anaesthetic costs in Brisbane were outrageous too. I was not impressed at the length of time one anaesthetist billed when I had been accidentally given my theatre notes with anaesthetic start and finish times. Being a clinician who works in hospitals I knew it was a ridiculous. Surgery time 11 minutes billed an hour. Typical IVF money making attitude.

    Quality of eggs is the issue not numbers. Too many eggs overstimulated will not mean a better outcome. Trust your doctor to know what they are doing. I had 7 eggs and nearly kissed Dr Matabese and she was so thrilled that I understood. 6 fertilized with 4 high quality embryos. 2 pregnancies from 2 transfers so far.

    It is always quality over quantity with IVF. Older eggs will have a higher fallout at fertilisation than younger or better quality eggs.

    Upping dtims is not good. Overstimulation redults in higher numbers of less poorly developed eggs. Seriously, these people are specialists who know what they are doing. Just trust them to do their job, and they do it well at CFC.
