    Thanks Ratty, I feel so much better about it now- it's all happening tomorrow and I can't wait!


    Many congratulation on the birth of your baby- Erin is such a beautiful name- you must be over the moon (and maybe a little tired too?!)


    Love Rachel xx

    travelling by air with meds???
    « Reply #84 on: 1/10/10, 20:25 »
    Hi, about to have first IVF in Poland and wondering what the general approach is by airlines (Wizz Air) in regard to carrying IVF medications (drugs & shringes) on board in hand luggage... consultant has said it won't be a problem as she'll provide a letter but wouldn't want to pay for drugs only to not be allowed to carry them on board - what are everyone's else experiences? Thanks

    Hi

    I went away to Spain with Syringes and drugs without a problem. The consultant provided me with a letter which I showed at check-in and everything was fine. I can't remember the airline but it was definitely no problem.

    Good Luck x

    i haven't traveled with fertility drugs before much less with syringes or anything but as far as i know if your prescriptions have the original labels on them (with your name, doc's name, the name of medication, etc) it wouldn't be a problem. same thing if you need to take diabetic medications which require syringes...hope this helps. but definitely bring the doctor's letter if you have it since it can't hurt....

    I travelled through four different airports in four countries last year and was only once asked to show the clinic letter. Once they saw there was medication with the needles etc they were happy enough.

    i travelled back from Spain 2 weeks ago with a box of prefilled syringes in my hand luggage and didn't even get asked about them. I did have a letter from my clinic just in case though.

    Flying and IVF
    « Reply #89 on: 18/11/10, 18:45 »
    I have just finished a conversation with my friend who has just been successful in the UK with SET and is 8 weeks pregnant.  I as discussing with her that we had decided on Budapest and would go out in January.  She told me that her specialist had advised against air travel during her IVF.
    I spoke to my GP also and she said although not proven it could be argued that the lower levels of oxygen in the cabin could affect implantation.  As you can imagine I am now worrying about this hindering our chances as we need to go overseas as we can't afford the UK's inflated prices.
    Anyone have any facts?
