    We accidently seen some of the donors when we were over there. They were all stunning. And yes all had beautiful hair plus skin.

    Hi ladies, I'm jumping in, better late than never. My DH and finally decided that we will be seeing Dr K at Embryoland in July, if anyone is going to be in Athens from around July 7th-14th let me know and I would love to catch up. I've only gone through 4
    OE cycles, so not many compared to a lot of women, but after only making it to transfer once and all my embryos arresting after day 3 I thought it was time. Of course my Melbourne FS told us to keep going with my eggs, due to my age, 34. She said we would eventually fall pregnant, but the emotional and financial toll was becoming such a struggle. After 3 miscarriages from 8-16 weeks we've decided to do PGD testing even though Dr K said it wasn't necessary, I just want to do everything in my power to avoid another miscarriage. I've stalked this page and have followed everyone's journey, so inspiring, it honestly puts my mind at ease.

    Have any of you ladies had issues with lining?

    Thanks in advance,
    carrie

    And some of the fellas are pretty hot too just quietly! (Says the slightly biased chick with a Greek DH :-D)

    Welcome luv :-). Any number of failed cycles is 'too many', so don't think you're jumping in too early. Each of us has a different springboard moment. Fingers crossed you get a dream run from here. In the meantime start packing your summer dresses cos Athens in July is going to be HOT HOT HOT!!! :-)

    Edit - and I had lining trouble initially, but now I use about 9 progynova/day and an oestrogen patch every 3 days and it works a treat.

    I am officially 5 weeks pregnant today. I have had cramping all day, every day since transfer. There's no blood at all and I have read this can be normal but just wondering if anyone else experienced this?

    Hi @********

    Even if you are the perfect recipient the data indicates you have around 70% chance of success in Greece. Yes there are a lot of factors involved in getting a BFP. Some remain a mystery to medical science to this day.

    I guess what we are all trying to say on this thread is that if you go to one of the reputable clinics in Greece that we have mentioned, you will get individualised care and attention, better facilities, technology and a much better chance of success than what seems to be provided in Oz. Another major factor is you will get an anonymous donor if that is important to you.

    Greece is not a 'silver bullet'. Like many things in life, there are no guarantees. Some of us have been to Greece multiple times. By going to Greece some of us have found out about problems we have that were overlooked in Australias 'one size fits all', factory process.

    You need to weigh it all up and then make a decision that is right for you. I really don't want to push my clinic, but if you want another opinion, I can PM you the contact details of an ivf abroad rep that deals with many ivf patients and OS clinics. It won't cost you a cent to have a Skype chat. It may help you resolve some queries you have.

    With me, my Oz FS said I had about 2% chance of getting pregnant with OE. I have done numerous tests including NKC (no probs), AMH (too low - 1), laparoscopy (mild endo), hysteroscopy (pollup removed, small cyst). DHs previous partner had a few miscarriages and a FISH test indicated potential issues with sperm. Apart from that I've got the all clear. I would prefer an anonymous donor. Plus I am in the over 40s bracket and am running out of time!

    I have a 2% chance if i use my own eggs. I have an increased % chance if i use a non-anonymous donor in OZ (but that is not what I want). Or....... over 70% chance with an anonymous donor in Greece... ummm... what will i do? let me think about it for a millisecond... yep, I'll put my money on Greece. (Actually on the site i posted to you recently they say 75%).

    Everyones situation is different. Keep the questions coming. Hope we can help you achieve your dreams.

    I just love the help and support I have been given on this forum. I don't know whether I would have gotten this far without it.

    Hi AussieAmerican.

    We will also be in Athens in July, dates be around 8th. We will be only there for a couple of days as we have embryos already in freezer ready to go.
    But love to catch up.
    Where will you be staying? We will just stay at president hotel seeing it's only a few days.
    Never had any dramas w lining but Dr Nikos will sort that out for you if you have issues w it. X

    Congrats, from what I understand its completely normal esp w donor eggs too. It's from them implanting deeper and uterus expanding and making room. X

    Thanks vixjc, , you're right it's going to be HOT! My DH is Greek so we were in Athens and Zante 2 years ago, the heat is something crazy. I'm from the US, near Chicago so I'm not used to the heat, especially when it's in the 40s.

    It's really assuring that your lining cooperated. I'm a little nervous about it but I feel like all of us ladies are in grea hands with the clinics we've chosen.

    Hi Kategc, thanks for the reply. My husband is Greek and has family in Athens and Zante so we are so fortunate that we don't have to pay accomodation,'we will be a few
    Kilometres away from Embryoland.

    Where are you based? I'm in Melbourne. I'll try to figure out how to PM on here and we can exchange details if you want. It would be nice to catch up in Greece for a souvlaki and whatever yummy deliciousness Athens has for us.

    All the best! If you don't mind me asking how many embryos did you have make it to freeze? I'm very hopeful that we have a few to freeze after this cycle
