Spain- Instituto Bernabaeu part 7

Hi Wenisk, I'm not sure to be honest. Its so difficult just now because it feels like standing on shifting sand. I think Spain were doing checks on arrival in the beginning but I'm not sure if they still are. It makes everything very challenging to plan doesn't it? Xx

    As far as I know they are temperature checking at airports so I am probably going to monitor my temperature before travelling just to be sure. Thanks Love_lucy for the tip on the Melia I will look into it. vrw100 - fingers crossed you get to go in September, we could be cycle buddies then.


    I am doing my mock cycle at the moment, my lining is not reacting to the Fematab after a week of increased dose its still only 5.8mm. I am waiting to hear back now on next steps and hopefully can keep on track and be ready for FET in Mid September.

    Vrw100 you some it up quite nicely as shifting sand. The rules and restrictions change overnight so who knows what the situation will be in a few weeks. I think if any of us want to get over there this year weíll need to accept thereís some risks.

    The infection rate in Spain is so much lower than it is where I live. I have more chance of getting it over here than over there! Iím going to also keep an eye on my own temp and if testing is still readily available iíll go get a test 48 hours before travelling for that extra reassurance.

    Shoegals sorry to hear your struggling with your lining. As a natural boost iíd recommend drinking lots of pure pomegranate juice. Doesnít taste so great but does help thicken things up a bit. Fingers crossed for you for September now.

    Just FYI no checks on arrival to Alicante but you have to download a travel app called Spanish health app I think and give them your location while youíre in Spain  You get a barcode and thatís scanned on arrival. 
    Your airline should link you through when you buy your ticket

    Covid test is done in the clinic

    Thanks for sharing your experience ZC. Planning this is adding to the stress of a new cycle so the more information I have the more it can help me feel prepared.

    I'm waiting for my period which should be tomorrow/ Wednesday and then hopefully I can get started.

    How is everyone doing?


    I am on my second mock cycle at the moment, have a scan on Thursday so hopefully my lining is responding as it should be.


    Love_Lucy and vrw100 are you still travelling in the next month or so?

    Hi Shoegals, sadly I'm having to delay this month thanks to the quarantine restrictions. However, I have made the decision to go ahead with a September cycle regardless, even if quarantine is still in place. The problem is that I will need to take almost 3 weeks off work if quarantine still applies. Thats half my annual leave gone in a single transfer, so if it doesn't work, then I'm running low on annual leave to have too many more cycles.

    I have written to my local MSP asking them to raise this issue with quarantine for those undergoing IVF abroad. Realistically, we will be the safest people over there and we won't be taking any risks because as soon as we are PUPO, we potentially have a baby to protect. I should imagine that most folk undertaking IVF abroad won't even leave their apartment, except to visit the clinic for the transfer. And we would certainly be wearing facemasks at the airport and on the plane.

    Love_lucy is going ahead with the August cycle though, so wishing her all the luck in the world with it.
    Xx

    Hi Shoegals - Fingers crossed for Thursday, hopefully this scan goes better and you see a nice thick lining!!

    My cycle is in progress and all preps in place for a transfer on Tuesday next week. I had my lining scan yesterday and thankfully it had got to 8.3 so i was given the go ahead. Flights and accommodation are booked and I start the progesterone on Thursday. It's all feeling very real now and I'm very anxious. It's also the first time I'll be leaving my little one overnight for the first time so a whole host of emotions with that as well.

    I was pleased to see the clinic have a new protocol of checking progesterone levels on the day of transfer, it will help give a bit of reassurance.

    Vrw100 - Thank you for your well wishes! Well done to you for taking a stance and writing to your MP. You're absolutely right that we should be treated differently as our reasons for travelling are different. I literally plan on going straight to the hotel and only leaving to go to the clinic. Hopefully something will come of it and you don't need to use so much annual leave.
