    Thanks for the info,
    The birth co, seems to be good and really economical.
    I might give it a go instead of going to my clinic, Lister, they have had enough money from me.

    take care and good luck xx

    I'm late to this topic but perhaps it would be useful to  give it a bump!

    I have just received a list of tests I need from CFC in SA and was wondering where best to go - so thanks very much!

    (That's when I decide I'm absolutely doing this of course!)

    Hello,

    Just adding to this thread with info that i found out.

    I have been using the private 4D scanning companies to do my lining scans. My local one does it for about 75.
    They will also do the blood test for either 25 or 50.

    The people were experienced at this sort of thing and they said that they had seen an increasing amount of people who were going abraod for treatment.

    Might be worth phoning a few in your local area.

    Good luck everybody

    Hi there

    has anyone doing DE IVF / ICSI abroad found a good clinic in the UK - south west / swindon / gloucester region who will liaise with the clinic abroad and do scans for a reasonable rate?

    Thanks

    Hi there

    I asked the same question for the South East a while back but didn't get an answer!  Although I decided to do everything in situ in the end...I just rang around the clinics in the area asking if they did this and also what the cost would be.  London prices were 750 plus blood tests...Brighton area 650 + blood tests...way more expensive than the clinic in New York!

    If you have your clinic abroad organised, ask them if
    a) they have any patients from your area and if so, are they able to recommend a clinic local to you
    b) if your clinic monitors on weekends you will want to find one in the UK that also opens on the weekends (many don't...and as the NY one does...needed the same flexiblity...the body doesn't wait!).
    c) if you do monitoring local to you, then make sure that they understand what is required of them (timeframes to get the results to your clinic for analysis) and also if they have done it before.  Too many cooks n all that!

    Very best of luck to you!

    Scans in Scotland
    « Reply #146 on: 10/03/10, 19:03 »
    Hi,
    Due to length of waiting time and cost of treatment in Scotland, I am considering going abroad for IVF treatment (using own eggs). To reduce the time spent abroad from two weeks to one week I need to find somewhere in Scotland who would be willing to undertake the first few scans. Has anyone else in Scotland had any success in finding a clinic willing to help?
