Patricia - going abroad is not so hard at all I guess the bad part is that in most cases it is not covered by insurance. My RE has an abroad program and it seems you would have to come over only twice the rest is done locally in the home country.

Re: How were your eggs fertilised?

Hi Cookie, I have no experience with that but was curious and googled. What I found is that other clinics on their site state that the sperm and eggs are left together overnight so it doesn't seem to be uncommon

Re: How were your eggs fertilised?

We did ICSI on all eggs as well. Low count and morphology issues. rE also said it would be a shame if I had to go through retrieval and then take chances with fertilization. Made send to me.
