    Try dr Barabash's rooms . He charged us a few hundred dollars for an ultrasound 3 weeks straight once or twice a week ! Apparently he is very affordable although a well known surgeon . You don't need all this crap ! He will provide you with meds . he is Malvern if that's close Enough to you & works mainly through Cabrini .he is very open minded .

    Mthfr - well depends what aspect of it you have . Mines c677t in which folinic acid as opposed to folic acid Is used . My clinician in Greece found out from a professor in Rome to make sure I'm taking folinic supplements as folic cannot be absorbed well in someone with my mutation of mthfr .

    Lyn Burmeister put me onto the folinic acid . So I would suggest a bit of ignorance there on that topic !! The test you need is Mthfr , demand you want it regardless .

    Stay focused & push politely 😀

    Oh & the Nk cell test , dr Lynn recommended that one to me & so did my clinician . its not a blood test but a biopsy at day 21 of your cycle so you will need an FS to do that one . Also a heads up with the tests if you chose an os ed then the clinics require tests to be not more than 6 months old leading up to transfer . My husband & myself feel like pin cushions !!

    Hi! I did the NKC blood test. The results were sent to my OS clinic and they advised no further testing of NKC required, ie no biopsy. I was happy with that... Of course if you have reason to suspect implantation issues, then the biopsy is going to provide better information. Just in my situation it was not needed.

    Also all OS clinics are different when it comes to tests required and when they 'expire'. Iakentro requires about 10 different tests for the woman (can't recall exact number). They are blood tests, swabs and a scan. Of course the tests for DH/DP are a lesser number - why do they always get off so easy!? There are a small number of these tests that Iakentro requires must be less than 12 months old (eg. scan), so unless you take more than 12 months to save up and travel over (like I did), then there is usually plenty of leeway. If you've recently done ivf then that saves on repeat tests. I just got copies of everything from my FS.

    Hope this helps.

    the blood tests aren't conclusive enough for Nk testing apparently for some specialists & biopsies are considered more accurate . My sister has just had a biopsy done as she is undergoing Ivf . Last of her own eggs to be transferred . completely different FS to me as well . I asked for a blood test both with FS & Clinician & they both wanted the Biopsy . I think it's one of those topics with differing opinions with dr's perhaps .

    Ps @CherryCP , is the Nk test for also not only implantation but for when the embryo grows & the body doesn't attack it as a foreign object ?
    I didn't realise it effected implantation as well .i should read up more on this topic !

    Also @******** you mentioned seeing a Chinese dr ? I see an acupuncturist in the city who also has given me some herbs . He Helped me recover from d&c quicker . He sees a lot of patients who are about to go OS for Donor Eggs . A friend conceived naturally at 43 with twins said he made it happen for her . So my girlfriends made me go see him I think it's a great support system .

    Hey Girls and partners reading. I am one of the lucky mums to be. Please if you are at all having a doubt about what you are told or whats ok do yourselves a favour contact Dr Nikos Kanakas at Embryoland for a second opinion. You are not under contract until your in Greece.
    I and some maybe bias, however, i had a call last night too from him checking how im going prior to bubs arrival. Nothing like services here.
    So please any doubt contact Embryoland.

    Hi everybody!

    I know every situation is different but I was just wondering what pretests were required by the clinics?

    Laparoscopy
    Hysteroscopy
    U scan
    Bloods
    Swabs
    Fish test
    Endo scratch

    These are some listed in your previous posts. I was just wondering if I've missed any.

    Going to see the FS next week. Hopefully it'll be a positive reaction rather than me giving him a coronary!!!!

    Hi Gold Coastie.
    Other than the usual HIV etc tests i did the following tests and procedures -
    Ultra sound
    Hysteroscopy
    Fsh test
    NK testing (biopsy)
    Endo scratch.
    I think that was it.

    1) Did you all just take enough meds for the flight and buy more once in Athens?

    I brought some with me, and bought the rest in Greece, especially the pessaries, much cheaper and better than the Aussie ones.

    2) Can anyone tell me how they reacted to the prognova and if so how soon after taking it ? I have only been on 1 tablet for a few days and seem awfully bloated!

    I was on like 8 or more a day, so I didnt really notice anything except for when I was around 12 weeks and I started getting migranes. I stopped soon after.

    3) May I ask if you did double embryo transfers or just went with one and if you went with 2 did it result in twins?

    I had double embryo transfer and ended up with one gorgeous son.
    4) Did anyone have serious second thoughts just before leaving?

    No way ! I thought long and hard about my donor egg option, planned it for months. Only second thoughts I had was which clinic and I'm glad I chose the one I did. Embryoland, where embryos come to life. I really should be his international agent. He can pay me in embryos. haha

    Thanks so much.
    Hope this helps.
