    Hey @Phia
    Mine in Thessoloniki was 5675eu for the first fresh cycle then 1400 for the FET and the last one will be 1000eu.
    The clinic is very beautiful. The coordinator is immaculate in communication via email. Answering every question straight away. Always there. Always supportive. (As if you are the only person on their mind.) I throughly recommend them and they are the ones who got one of my friends pregnant twice first time and second time.
    I'm sure the prices are very similar in Athens?
    Storage I think was about 300eu

    Hey Monty73
    Wow another single mum to be. You've powered through this - what a trouper. When your baby comes it's going to be some amazing lucky child. My male donor is from Denmark. My female is an athletic type like me.
    Good luck girls!
    Xoxo

    Hi there @Monty73, I'm glad you liked Kostas, he's a really polite and genuine guy with a wonderful knowledge of Athens. I can't wait to go back and try this restaurant called "5f" I think, 5 something!

    Enough about the food in Athens, since I'm hungry right now and that's all I can think about, I even went back to my Greece photos and drooled. Greeknom.jpg5F.jpg

    I'm single also and did 10 ivf's on my own, this was my 10th time and wohooo I got lucky, its easier on your own sometimes. Though when the baby does come, help and support from family and friends is definitely something you cherish.

    As for the sperm donor question, Dr Kanakas said to find a donor through Cryos International, he gave me a list of the sperm that was available in Athens. Most sperm is shipped from Denmark , but there are some on ice in Athens. My donors profile had photographs, audio recording of donor and a full profile, family tree etc, very interesting. I'd love to find out the siblings my son has out there in the world, I have to ask about that one day? I have no idea if I can find them????
    https://dk.cryosinternational.com/

    Good luck to @Power child I hope you have success this time ! Never stop trying until you get what you want ! I wish you happiness and joy with a baby in your arms soon...

    I know a few girls in Europe right now, both are PUPO !! I wish them the very best luck too, one went to Genesis and another went to Embryoland. Hope they both come back happier than they left !!

    It's so nice to see some new posters keeping this thread alive, after all it's because of this place I found Embryoland and now have a son, whos nearly ONE !!

    I'm so clucky and really want another baby, I keep thinking I was only lucky the first time and it won't happen again. I come here and read your stories and feel stronger and inspired to keep continuing forward. I will pick up my little frosties and hopefully give them a warm snuggly home for them to grown in. I hope it happens and I look forward to seeing Dr Nikos again and hearing him say in his Greek accent " Don't worry..."..

    Thanks so much ladies. @Phia I haven't got the costs yet for PGS but the DE cycle is about 6000k euros I think inc meds for the donor. I'm unclear as I paid for a sperm donor also. FET is about 1400 I think... @gorgeousgeorge and @Rhino should be able to confirm that as they also went in recent months.

    Are you waiting for Dr Nikos to respond? He's normally really quick so maybe follow up. I have a call with him in Sunday to discuss my next visit.
    @Yasna Whilst I was there I spoke to Canadian woman who had a BFP first round then came back for a sibling and she found out that day it was BFP again! She was going to stay in Athens and do another transfer if she had a BFN, so it does happen. Stay positive
    Thanks so much for the donor info, much appreciated. And I second the Greek food, looking forward to going back to eat some more!

    @powerchild thanks so much for your lovely message and glad to see other likeminded single women out there going the Greek route like you and @Yasna. Best of luck for your upcoming visit.

    Xxx

    @Phia hi, my cycle ended up being around 7000euro, that was for donor eggs, the transfer, meds for me and donor, the donor epu, we didnt get any frosties so i dont know how much that is. :-) That didnt include pgs. I think pgs is about 2000euros in greece. They get the results back next day so you can still have a fresh transfer though i think, which is good.
    @Monty73 hey mate, you know, in a way, its kind of good that you now have a good reason why last transfer didnt work. Iykwim? It makes me feel more hopeful for your next one. I thought any fs would be able to see uterine septum on an internal ultrasound? If youd done ivf before, as you have, they usually check your uterus to make sure its a 'normal' shaped cavity and they measure the size of it to check thats normal too. But maybe they can only have that done in a laproscopy. I always thought they knew from the ultrasound. Coz wouldnt they have checked when you had endometriosis diagnosis surgery? i guess not though. But it seems really promising too that youve got all the right drs lined up doing all the right stuff and some definite information for your troubles. xox
    @Lucky8 hi was it u who nentioned prednisolone and lining. If you get more info about that, can you share it please? I was thinking of taking it empirically, just in case but interested on hearing other opinions and info to the contrary :-)

    Anyways happy weekend lovely ladies xox

    @gorgeousgeorge my cost was about that but inc the charge for donor sperm so I thought yours would be less?
    It's strange but it's never been picked up before on all the scans I've had. But I'm thinking maybe wasn't very big so maybe that's why and I also have a tilted uterus so maybe not as visible??
    But the Dr who done my lap/hysto must have seen it but left it be.
    I think Dr S was surprised also yesterday just by the way he told me. He has already sent through photos which I have sent to Dr K. They mean nothing to me! Not sure what I'm looking at but I'm sure all will be explained when I see him on the 30th.

    I am hoping it's a big factor in my failures so I am focussing on the positives of it all rather than past mistakes by my other specialists. And maybe now I have a reason.

    Still very concerned about next time. Have you got any further on your next trip re DHs tests or using donors?

    Have a great weekend all :-) xx

    hi @gorgeousgeorge

    the testing was with the Genesis clinic & it seems predisolone can interfere with lining quality so I beleive they may be lowering dosages to minimise impact to lining health .

    if I hear more will pass it on .

    Thanks ladies for all the info re cost - it's such a difficult choice! But very exciting

    Yes, I'm still waiting on a reply from Dr Nick, so might resend.
    @gorgeousgeorge good to know PGS is done so quickly! It takes 3 weeks at Monash in Melbs!

    HI everyone
    @francesthecat praying your two blasts stick and grow!!
    @AngelD thank you – I ended up contacted the fertility clinic and letting them know how concerned I was. One of the lovely nurses is giving me a lot of help and said she’d ask their doctor any questions I have and she’d get back to me. So at least I don’t feel so alone now! I have finally (yesterday) received a letter from the hospital I was referred to – they’ve issued me a date for first appointment 28th Nov! So still have to wait a while... I’m glad I have lots of symptoms so I know i”m still pregnant – at least I won’t stress about that
    @Peninsula Girl your plans sound amazing! And getting all the meds in Greece is a lot cheaper!!

    @powerchild good luck in a couple of weeks!! I haven’t had puffiness when flying but a friend of mine always does (even to Bali). Her GP gave her fluid pills to take but not sure if that’d be safe when you’re heading home pregnant!
    @Monty73 welcome back!! I’m so sorry you didn’t have a positive result this time! So glad you have found the cause so next time BFP!
    @Yasna you will be lucky again! Can’t wait to hear when you’re plans are set and you’re heading back to Greece!
    @Phia I heard back from Dr Nick extremely quickly and then he set up skype call within a few days – so yes do follow up as maybe your email didn’t reach him?

    My costs at embryo land were exactly what Dr N had told me before we left – we paid $3000 euro in cash on our first visit. Then we paid amounts at the chemist for donor meds and to embryoland post transfer to a total of $4000 euro. (total $7000 euro). We then chose to purchase enough utrogestan pesseries and cyclacur (progynova) to last until week 12 as it’s a lot cheaper there (from the chemist). We didn't have any to freeze and didn't have any other tests done.

    Have a great weekend everyone

    Thanks for that Rhino! Glad you got some certainty for care during your pregnancy. Yay!

    I was on such a low on Monday, a really really low day.

    Ladies, on this thread and others, are so kind, caring and helpful. I am so thankful and especially grateful for the support.


    It makes a world of difference for what is a very lonely journey for me in real life.

    ((((((Big hugs)))))))
