Hi Ladies,

Sallysmiles - Congratulations on being PUPO!!!! That's great that you have 3 onboard and 3 in the freezer! I hope that you are taking it easy during the TWW!

Lore - Congratulations on your BFP! I suppose you are about 8 weeks now? Have you had a scan yet?

KateLW - I am very sorry about your losses. Using the pre-tested frozen embies seems like a great, cost effective idea if you need both donor sperm and donor eggs. Are you provided with info as to the respective genetic contributors -- e.g., his & her eye colour, hair colour, height?

Stacey10 - I recognize you from the Zlin thread; I previously cycled there, but had to change to Dogus once I hit 50. Are you already plotting your next LO even though you have a bun in the oven?  ;D Can you spread a bit of your baby dust?  ;D

AFM - I had a lap/dye and hysteroscopy earlier this week. My fallopian tubes were completely blocked, so the surgeon took them out. She also found some endometriosis, which she removed. I will continue recovering over the next week before returning to work. I hope that this will make the difference in being able to achieve implantation success! We chose my donor for the next fresh cycle, and we should be flying out there in early November.

xx

    Srygrl, haha was asking for a friend as she has also hit the age zone, I've always followed the 3 threads on here as north Cyprus was on my radar when I was choosing clinics and it's very hard to stop reading as you get just about as invested in the ladies cycling as what they are themselves !! I'm sorry to read of your loss  ^hugme^ Hoping my wee one stays through to the end as zlin/Czech government are cracking down on the age limit and it is now 49 not 49+364 days so not sure what that means for all the ladies who were intending to go back for a fet in the yr that they turned 50, I'm glad I went when I did or I would be in that predicament as well, this baby is due 5 days before I turn 50 :) planned it that way so d/h would believe me when I said this was the last time   ;D  which I meant but obviously good that there a re options if something went wrong, although not to sure now if there is going to be an age limit in nth Cyprus now  :-\

    Hi, I'm considering ivf abroad but finding it really difficult to find comparable information on success rates etc.  I'd really appreciate it if you were willing to give me some information about the clinic your attending?   I was wondering if anyone who has used this clinic could give me feedback on how they found doing own egg ivf there? 
    How long were you abroad, and which cycle days? 
    Did you get local scans before travelling?   
    Did you get your medication locally or from abroad?   
    Can you freeze additional embryos at this clinic?   
    Do you know the success rates?
    How much did the cycle cost? 
    Would you use this clinic again?
    Is there a bmi limit for treatment?
    Is there anything else I should know?
    I'm about to turn 40, my husband is 33. I lost a tube to an ectopic in 2014 and we've just discovered that the remaining tube is blocked.   All the other scans and blood tests are clear, so hopefully ivf has a good chance.

    Good evening everyone, I thought I would share our experience at Dogus Fertility Clinic with you all as we found these forums very useful while going through the IVF process. I must have spent hours and hours reading through different treads.

    I'll start from the beginning my wife Hannah (25) and Myself (28) had been trying for children for about 4 years with no success. After making an appointment with our GP in England, we found out that Hannah had Polocystic Overies. Hannah was given Ovarian Drilling where they tried to burn the cysts off the ovaries but unfortunately this was un-successful. The NHS then put us forward for government funding for 1 free shot of IVF on the NHS at Wessex fertility center in Basingstoke, we were over the moon, finally thought we were going to have our own little family - A few days after egg collection we got a phone call to say they won't be putting the embryos back inside Hannah as they had abnormalities. We were later told that during the egg collection process they had difficulties because the eggs were deformed. That was it, everything was over/ We had a follow-up appointment to explain everything and to go over costs if we wanted to try again.

    A year later Hannah felt she was ready to try again, and with the advice of egg donation we decided this would be the best route to go down. While searching for clinics, I stumbled across www.dogusfertilityclinic.co.uk - This caught my eye because Cyprus was the first place I ever went abroad as a child & Hannah and I also had our honeymoon in Cyprus. (Although we had always stayed in South Cyprus, Never the North). I'm a big believer in fate so putting the links together it felt right so I sent then an email, within half an hour I had a response from Andri on [email protected] it gave us all the information and prices on Egg donation that we needed. After talking with my wife we decided to get booked in.

    Andri sent us the timetable and protocol - Because Hannah didn't have any periods, she sent a prescription for a contraceptive pill to regulate her period. Andri also sent a prescription for all other meds that were needed. This was emailed to a chemist in London that we called up and had sent out by post (arrived the next day) and cost about 40 for the whole lot.

    We had to send a few test results over to Cyprus. We managed to get a few like the blood tests done on the NHS & a couple we had to do private (Simen Analysis - 120,  Smear test 120, Ultrasound 150) - These were sent over to Cyprus by email.

    We decided to book our own accommodation for the week we stayed in Cyprus. We used Amy Villas and booked a lovely villa in Keyrina for 1050 and hired a car to get around. Flight were around 550 from Gatwick to Larnaca and the transfer from Larnaca was 40 each way. Andri did offer free transfers and transportation to and from the clinic, but I had been too organised and already booked it all.

    When we got to Cyprus, we got a lovely message welcoming us to Cyprus from Andri, the boarder crossing was no hassle at all, the taxi drivers literally just showed our passports at the boarder and they let us continue our journey.

    The first day at Dogus we met with Andri and Dr Sevket - Andri speaks perfect English and it was such a relief when we first met her, she was lovely. So down to earth and friendly, after meeting her I instantly felt at ease. I had to produce a sample in a private room while Hannah waited in the waiting-room. After this Hannah and I went into to meet Dr Sevket who was lovely, he spoke some English, but Andri was there to explain everything and translate for us. Hannah then had an external ultrasound to check how thick the lining of the womb was - All showing ok.  We paid the 4500 Euro fee on this day as we didn't like the idea of carrying this amount of cash around with us.

    That was it for the day, Hannah was told not to go in the Pool or sea after this day. So we had 5 days to enjoy Cyprus before we had to go back in for transfer. Northern Cyprus was lovely the people were so friendly and everything was so cheap out there. I think we took about 700 spending money which was more than enough for the week.

    Andri kept us upto date with how everything was going via WatsApp which was nice and re-assuring.

    On transfer day we were told that there were 6 healthy embryos and we had 3 put back in. This process took no more than 10 minutes. Hannah then had to lie down for 2 hours. The nurses offered to get food ordered to the hospital if we wanted.

    After this it was time to say good by to everyone. It was all very emotional, the whole process from start to finish just felt right. The hospital was clean and tidy and the staff all friendly, I really couldn't fault the place at all.

    We flew back later that evening after buying the meds locally for about the equivalent of 250.

    We did a blood test 2 weeks later and got a positive this week Hannah did the stick test and she got another positive.

    We are both so Happy, and can't thank Dogus Fertility, Andri, and Dr. S enough. Andri responded to every email quickly (Even on a Sunday)#

    We are booked in for a Ultrasound next week as requested.
