As the old Team Miracle has split months ago now, I think it's time to create a new home for the new clinics to avoid confusion. If you are going to Cyprus (or thinking of going there) to have your treatment with Dr F, please join this thread.

I had a cyst on one of my ovaries but didn’t affect things. When I did luckily get pregnant I had polyps discovered during a scan which worried me but that didn’t affect anything either. Good luck Sporty Spice with treatment, hope you get to proceed. Dr F did a scan when I arrived on day dh gave sample so Iam sure she will know what is best.

Someone told me to stay away from area the bags go in to get the x ray. Also instead of going through the metal detectors at airport dh told them I was pregnant so a lady searched me instead. Not sure if this made a difference at the airport but want to point it out.

Good luck ladies xx

That's reassuring Clarabelle! I'm keeping my fingers crossed & will value the opinion of Dr. F.

I fly out this week & at the clinic on Friday. Eek.

Never thought about the X-ray. I can't even remember the airport routine from the last time around. Thank you for the heads up

Meant to go there for the check-up tomorrow, with transfer next week – a little earlier than planned. Are you getting your embryos transferred tomorrow or is it your check-up day?

Hello - I'm here at the clinic, just waiting my turn. It looks as if it's going ahead providing the frosties defrost just fine. Exciting.

Thank you for the good luck vibes 🤞

All four in the vial had defrosted fine but I definitely wasn't going to have all four back, so it's ashame one little embie has gone to waste. The clinic wanted an extra €1000 to freeze just that one on it's own & I already have a separate vial of four in the deep freeze. All that hard work to make it & it goes to waste. I think I would have rather donated it but there wasn't any mention of such a choice at the time.

Tinseltown it's ashame we must have just brushed shoulders today.
How did you get on? Do you have your transfer day?

My lining is a bit on the thin side (7mm), so we did a Neupogen wash and upped the meds.

Dr F said it should be ready by the transfer date in 5 days time. Now waiting to see how many eggs fertilised and how many will pass PGD.

That sounds promising. I ended up eating/ drinking pomegranate juice and whether that works I don't know.
Did you have the embryscope? I enjoyed looking at the daily updates.
For transfer today, one of the ladies filmed on her phone and social media'd over to me. Rather strange little white 'blobs'  returning back.

Yes, we literally just returned from the supermarket with fresh pomegranates and pomegranate juice!!! Great minds...

I’m getting used to Cyprus, and I feel relatively safe and relaxed. Might help that we rented a place in a residential area this time, with the tamest and cutest dogs around (still wondering whether they’re well-cared for street dogs or are owned by a neighbour) demanding petting each time we step out of the house.

No embryoscope this time as it’s under maintenance for the next few days, but it’s fine as we’re doing PGD anyway.

Sporty Spice — are you staying in Cyprus longer and making it more of a holiday? Or are you off back home soon?

We're here until the 1st March & rented our own place via Airbnb situated just north of Nicosia. Clinic is 15 mins by car. It's okay but heating is temperamental (not great when it's 7° at night) so we have decided to add a hotel or two into the mix.
