    A friend of mine did embryo adoption at a clinic in the Southampton area and was successful, think it cost around 4500

    @snowdropwood I'm 42 and considering embryo donation, I'm single too.  I think I heard your name in another post somewhere.  Anyway, I'm leaning towards overseas treatment.

    @kittykat76 4500 euro in Southhampton?  That's amazing!  So they got an embryo donor?  Was it a frozen embryo?  Were the donors a couple who had a previous treatment?

    Yes - we have chatted before  - I am looking into treatment in Bristol atm, joined DCN ( donor conception network) which seems informative / helpful xx

    Hi Snowdropwood, I'm 43 and I did double donation at the Lister in London.  I'm currently 29 weeks pregnant from that cycle.  I'm married but my husband has male factor infertility so we were already using donor sperm but then due to my age we moved to donor egg too.  I've found it harder to find others who have done double donation as most are just donor egg or sperm although I have connected with some other ladies on Instagram.

    Hey there! I am having embryo donation (x2) in Prague in March. I am 45 and my husband is 47. We've never been pregnant. We've tried IUI's and Clomid years ago. We didn't think we would try anymore and have had a child free life but then- I changed my mind. We are pretty excited. The cost overseas is quite reasonable- way better than what we would pay here in the US.

    Hi Snowdrop
    I'm solo mum and did double donor but had embryos made for me rather than donated embryos already made.  I had my treatment in Cyprus although I'd rather have stayed in the UK the costs were prohibitive.  If you want identifiable donors I believe Portugal they are now doing open embryo donation.

    Thanks all - I have an appointment  soon in Bristol for assessment for DD. I have found Portugal clinics also very informative and offering non anonymous treatment.  I think counselling is also necessary at this time as I feel I stand at a crossroads and feel quite overwhelmed at times.  DCN also really helpful inc library, forum, workshops etc . xx

    Hope it goes well for you.
    I've been looking into DD or embryo donation mainly from clinics abroad (Institut Marques and IFC), if I do go ahead with it I want to do it by next year as i'll be 44 this year. I want to focus on getting me healthy again before starting as its fair to say I haven't been taking good care of myself since my Husband and I split.
