Hello Ladies,

I am going  a little mad here as I am not sure how to navigate the site and access replies. I keep checking to see if there are any replies and seem to come up with old messages so I am not sure what I am doing wrong.. I am trying to decide between Institute Marquez and Sims clinic Dublin for Egg donation with ICSI and I wonder do you have any advice or experiences you could share. Dublin would be much easier for us. Yes , the price is horrendous so any other clinics that have good results very welcome. I can appreciate that you have all possible been through this part of the process re choosing your clinic but any thoughts help appreciated. I am feeling a little like a hamster on a wheel at the moment, turning into  a rat in a whole.

SIMS seems to take about 4-6 months from initial appointment to the egg transfer and this seems a very ling time.
Success rates appear to be 70% for clinical pregnancies and 55 % per cent for live births - does this seem average, good........
Any other stories thoughts experiences very, very very welcome!Many thanks.

Hi Julia,
Yes Sims is very convienent for treatment but if it is DE you are going for its a lot lot easier than IVF - you really only need very minimum meds and one lining scan - simple as that !!!
When we first decided on DE - I emailed about 20 clinics I found on the web - I then sorted through them and emailed back ones we were interested in. We based our choice on reviews on this fantastic site and of coure for us money was a big issue.
We decided on Reprofit as we could have 4 fresh goes for 1 at Sims !!!  Sort of a no brainer really !!!!

If you have decided on IM for your treatment I would say go for it - as long as you are happy and confident with your clinic it means a lot.

Dont get to hung up on % offered my clinics as really at the end of the day its a pure numbers game  / luck - call it what you will .

Going abroad for treatment is fine - its a nice break away with a bit of treatment too.  I flew home day of transfer - drove home in the snow to my house and got up at 5am for work the next day !!  It really is that easy .

Hope you make the right choice and go with what your heart says.
