I know that no one usually posts on this site butthought I would give it a go. Just trying to get as much info as possible on egg donors. DH and I are going down this route. We are on a waiting list but want to try and speed things up a bit. If anyone has info on any ideas to help eg. advertising, we would be really grateful for your ideas and experiences,<br>Thanks,<br>Lou

Thanks for replying Trace,<br>I never thought about that but maybe I should do some leaflets. I remember that you were having a donor egg from your cousin who is off to live in Australia. How is it all going?Do you have a date to start?You must be very excited.<br>Keep in touch,<br>Lou

Hi Trace,<br>Just noticed that you had posted on this part of the site again, thanks! I am waiting for AF so that we can try again. I know that I ovulated last month as I had progesterone tested. Just can't quite believe that if that is the case then it is not possible to collect one follicle. DH and Ia re going to try a natural cycle with IVF, and clomid so that if there is one follicle they will go for collection. I have been such a poor responder and FSH usually around 10 but the Lister are happy for me to give this a go. After that I think we will have to go for donor egg. No response from ad. place in OK magazine but we have been on waiting list for one year now. Think you are going for a scan day after tomorrow so all the very best, not long until you are on 2ww now, <br>Good Luck,<br>Lou

Its great news that they are going to try and do one more protocol at least then you know you have done everything before DE, Ive not heard of that protocol before but you only need 1 to fertilise and latch on so you have just as much chance as anyone else. My clinc told me today that Mandy has 14 follis and has her last scan on Friday morning so it looks as though EC should be Monday and ET Wednesday, am very excieted now as I think it all sounds very positive .<br><br>PMA PMA PMA<br><br>Take care and good luck let me know what happens . :)<br>Trace x

Hi Lou,<br><br>There is a web site www.donatingeggs.co.uk that was set up by a woman looking for donated eggs.<br><br>You will find lots of information there and info on how to advertise such as what you can and can't put in it ect as well as being able to put an advert on there for yourself.<br><br>It is a long and labourious process of waiting for a donor to come along and I feel that any little thing we can do to get one quicker can only be a good thing. It also helps you feel a little more in control than perhaps we are....<br><br>Good luck Carol <br><br>

going abroad

Postby johanna » Tue Sep 28, 2004 12:20 pm

I currently live in greece and had ovarian failure 6 yrs which was not detected for some time since then i have been through all the usual stuff trying to get pregnant, i finally accepted that egg donation was my only option and found a really nice clinic here in greece where the waiting list is only 4/6 months long and only a month long in Athens. The eggs are shared between 2 people which brings the cost down to about 2 thousand pounds. Wish me luck

Hi Johanna, thats really good news. I wish you all the best. I too have what they term as an early ovarian failure :cry: but I still do not give up :? I too have decided to go on a waiting list, currently not on it as looking at the different clinics. But I have had a few ivf treatments but none as yet have worked. I had a break for two years and really needed it. Only started posting here recently and what a help all the girls have been. There is always advice or support if you need it. So welcome to the board, post away and best of luck with any treatments. Love Jjj :wink:

Hi
Just wanted to say I am soon to have my ET on my first Cycle of Egg Donor IVF. Even though I had a donor on my behalf and I have paid for treatment the wait has been so long to find a donor. I wish you luck on your journey jill x

Hi Jjj,
Thanks for the reply, I think my Donors EC and DH sample will be Wednesday or Thursday next week which would make my ET Friday or Saturday. I just hope my lining is thick enough to carry on, I had real problems down regging and they put me on another drug plus the spray to bring on another AF! I am now on spray and drugs to build the lining up. Take care love Jill x

Hi Jill, well you will have a busy week next week. I am sure the lining will be fine, you still have plenty time for the drugs to take action. Look after yourself and look forward to meeting your little embies. Love Jjj

Thanks Jjj,
I rang my nurse today to air my worries about my lining not being thick enough for ET. She said that it is possible to up my drugs if it isn't thick enough which is good love Jill x
