    Hi everyone - a quick update from Cape Town. My ET with Dr Matebese was this morning, and it went very smoothly. She was very supportive, and very professional - it took a total of 15 minutes, including the embryoscope viewing, preparation and actual procedure (painless).

    We had 11 eggs retrieved, 8 fertilised, from which we got 7 'beautiful' blasts. She put back 2, so 5 to freeze.

    That's fantastic news @Rubywoohoo and has got me in a positive mindset for my turn. Only 8 days til I go. Fingers crossed you've got two sticky embies in your oven

    Its been a while since I've logged in, but looks like there has been some really positive outcomes for so many. Here's hoping it will be my turn sometime this year. We have managed to find a donor, and been in contact with the clinic. But it seems we always encounter 1 o2 delays, so now it looks like we'll be heading over to Durban in November.

    I actually had a few questions, if anyone has the time to reply?
    • Just wondering if anyone has done the draw down method to sync cycles. I'm due to start this process in September, and really not looking forward to the menopause symptoms.
    • Is it standard to have 2 blasts transferred? My doctor here has advised against it given the risks associated with multiple births, but I'm torn as I want the best chance of success possible. I'm curious to know how others have made a decision around this?
    • Has anyone brought their embryos to Australia? My FS here has suggested I need to look into this. I can't find any details about the regulations in Qld.
    Well best wishes to all the ladies in the midst of the cycle or making their way through the 2WW.

    Hi Blu

    I haven't heard of the draw down method, I used the Pill to sync my cycle with my donor's when I went to Cape Town in 2015 and will use the same method when I go back to Cape Town in 2017 as there is a aspecific time frame that I have to have a FET.

    I don't think that it is standard to have 2 embies transferred. We requested a double embryo transfer as we were aware of the risk of a multiple birth and we didn't mind if we had twins (my husband is a twin). Our Dr in Cape Town agreed as I am very healthy with no underlying medical issues that could have made a multiple pregnancy dangerous. We were very lucky that both of our embryo's implanted and our twins are now nearly 11 months old.

    My understanding was that you are unable to bring embryos to Australia as the donor is unknown however there was another thread on BH earlier in the year where somebody had researched and said that you can but that the requirements to do so varied between states, so sorry unable to shed any light on it. Maybe check with your clinic in Durban they may be able to tell you.

    Good luck in November.
