    I had the Spanish flu and double pneumonia and it was touch and go a few times but I pulled through. Now I have a cold whilst waiting for my Caesar tomorrow.

    Default Egg Donation in Greece #5

    Hi girls, regarding doing DE with Dr N.

    I know that he picks the donor for you & I'm pretty cool with that.. bcos even a genetic child you don't get photos of before they are born so you can choose another one!

    .but I've been wondering where do the donors come from? Are they only Greek donors or do they also come from other countries? And what kind of info do you get told about your donor? Anything at all?

    I'm of Celtic heritage.. Scottish/Irish.. Very fair skin with freckles, blue eyes, light brown hair.. Silly question but did anyone else doing DE worry that the donor wouldn't match your own colouring? I don't expect a donor to actually look like me, but general colouring feels important at least??

    Also has anyone done a tandem cycle with Dr N? Where you use half ur own eggs & half donor? Can u even do that?

    Appreciate any info

    Hi Phia,
    We were extremely lucky and fell pregnant on our first cycle. I had not bothered with IVF here in Australia as my percentages due to age were against us and I did'nt have the time or money to spare. After over ten miscarriages (due to old eggs they say) we took the plunge and off we went to Greece. Feeling very blessed and hope you are too!!!

    @Charlie74 hey lovely, just popping in quickly coz im at work, yes you can do split cycle, thats what im doing next cycle. And yes, they have donors to match you. Greece is multicultural so all kinds of donors available. They legally have to match colouring. I'll pop back in this arvo or pm me :-) iz good to see/hear from you again. Ive been thinking of you xox

    @Charlie74 hey mate, i misread your post about split cycle, i thought you meant shared sperm not eggs. So im not sure but i dont see why not. Dr N is very easy going so im sure he'd listen properly and openly if you asked him about it :-)

    Apparently there are Greek donors and Polish donors, not sure what other nationalities, I'm sure theres a few ! My friend has blonde hair and blue eyes and he matched the egg perfectly. Her son has the bluest eyes and blondest hair. My son has Greek donor and he looks like me my mother says, plus Dr Nikos said I look Greek so I shouldn't worry !!

    As for tandem cycle, I've never done it since I wouldn't bother with my aged eggs. After all, I really just want to pick up my last 2 embryos and make a sibling for my son. I'd have to get my eggs tested if I did a cycle with my own eggs, then its way too costly...I can't afford all this on my own.

    I went to Dr today and got my scripts for Progynova and Clexane. Also getting full blood test done to see how things are going, iron levels etc. OMG its so close until I try again !!!

    Hi @Charlie74 I'm of Scots/celtic descent as well. Dr N found us a donor that matched my fair skin and eye colour . We won't know how it worked out for a couple of months yet . Bear in mind, if you were going for a donor here in Australia you wouldn't necessarily find a matching donor.
