Hi there,
I am pretty new to all this so any help would be greatly appreciated.
We've been trying to conceive for 3 years - with no success at all. I have been refused NHS IVF treatment as my FSH levels were far too high and they believe that I only have a 10% chance of IVF working.
They mentioned that the best option for me would be to use donor eggs.
My fertility specialist mentioned that I should try either the Lister (london) or the Bridge fertility Clinic (london). I believe that there is a waiting list for donor eggs in the UK but I believe that The Bridge (london) offer an international programme in Alicante. Would love to hear from anyone who has taken this path.
Thanks so much.

Hello Littleflower - I am having Donor Egg IVF at The Bridge and had a cycle at Vistahermosa, Alicante last November and hope to be going back for a FET.  It's handy as you can get all your scans done there and they interact with the Doctors in Alicante.  I think you could do it without them (it's probably a lot cheaper) but I find it easier to get all the medications and scans I need.

I post on the Vistahermosa  thread so if you decide to go to VH feel free to join in. 

If you need any specific questions answered feel free to PM me.
