Hello Sunrise - I did international IVF donor egg cycle and my answers are below for you:
So we are pretty sure we will be doing a donor cycle soon. I have done so e research and decided on international donor and international donor clinic mostly due to cost. I am strafing to get cold feet. What if it does not work? What if the clinic messes up and we have no protection because it is not in the USA. I have some questions.
How many IVF’s before donor egg cycle ? One cycle, my own eggs and many IUI’s
Your age at donor cycle? 41
Successful first time? If not how many cycles ? I was successful my first time with donor egg cycle
Frozen donor egg or fresh? Fresh
How old was your donor ? 27
How many eggs, embryos did you get? 27 and all were fertilized
How many did you put embryos did you put back in? 2
Was your donor a previous successful donor ? I was her first time…
How many month before your donor cycle did you start the process? I had my own egg IVF in April, lost the baby to miscarriage in June and did my donor egg cycle in August
Clinic you used? And would you recommend this clinic? Fertilite in Tijuana Mexico and YES, I would refer them and have!
Any special preparation for your donor cycle ? Honestly, no… Just ate healthy, and after the transfer ate pineapple core and cauliflower
Cost of your donor cycle? Meds for her $2500, testing for her $500, her compensation $800, my meds about $300 and my transfer $2500 - total was about $6500
Any regrets? None! I am 32 weeks pregnant with a little boy, I started off with twins and lost one right before 8 weeks
Any advice ? Go with what you feel is right, be secure in your choice and just enjoy the experience. I went into it with an attitude of if it is meant to be it will be, I took no special vitamins, no acupuncture, drank my cup of coffee a day and was at peace with whatever was going to happen…
Good luck to you, and if you have ANY questions, PLEASE feel free to ask!
I would really appreciate as much feedback as possible.
