Embryo Adoption

Hi folks

Coming to the end of my ICSI journey. At last consultation prior to this round the doctor said we could look at egg donation.
I can't get this in UK due to lack of donors.

Been looking at Embryo adoption abroad. Seems a lot cheaper too.

Does anyone have any experience of this and any advice?

Thanks

Hi

I had ED treatment at Institut Marques in Spain, I know they do an embryo adoption scheme too so it may be worth you taking a look at their website.

There are lots of excellent fertility clinics in Spain, have a look on our treatment abroad threads.

:goodluck: to you.

Love Gracie

Hi, I'm having egg donation at IREMA, they looked for my donor in just a few days and I'm waiting for the egg collection; The experience so far is both, scary and exciting, but I'm so happy with my clinic, they are all lovely and caring.

If you need any help or I can help you with something just tell me...

i used fiv marbella.for embryo adoption, currently on 2ww. was €2800. for the tx but you then buy meds. oestrgen patches and progesterone pessaries. quite cheap in spain for medication. this time i bought 12 weeks worth of meds for €120. approx
marbella only give 2xd3 embryos. it what still cheaper even with flights and accommidation thrown in than uk egg donation. in : D spain and a lot of others abroad, it is anonymous donation though. if you havent got a problem with that - seriously consider the option. xx

wishing you well on whatever you decide

Thinking about it too...

I see on this thread it is referred to as EMBRYO ADOPTION and not DONATION which is an interesting play on words there.

I am 42 and looking likely to have to accept this as my only option in the coming months.

I have moral and emotional reservations but am trying to come to terms with acceptance - anyone got any tips on how to mentally prepare for this option, which lets face it, none of us ever thought when we were younger that we would ever have to accept ot face up to as our future path.

Thanks guys and good luck in all you do,

hi neaverbeaver.

there were 4 things i/we thought about

1 did i want to pass my congenital condition on. i have pushed my luck 4 times and the jury is out on my 2 youngest. they look like they possibly having it. doesnt affect them badly yet.
2 was i ready to quit trying to have more children
3 both my eggs and his sperm are b**gered so chances of another of own were slim to zero. with my eggs being knackered my chances of m/c were 75%. donor egg chances go back down to 25%
4 would i love potential child in the same way as i do my others

finances did have a say in the thought process as well. quite honestly, its one of the best decisions i have ever made. the treatment protocol is so easy, in the main its not stressful and hopefully i get a take home baby.

i understand this is a very hard and personal decision, but so far personally for me, at least it has been the best decision i have made. they try to match as closely as possible.

the only other question is "do i want my baby or a baby".

i got my bfp this morning, got to blood test tomorrow and im praying the numbers are good. i am over the moon as the embryos were given to me but its my blood and nutrients that are sustaining it/them. so from now on its my baby, no-one elses. of course i am grateful to donor sperm and donor eggs, but its/they are still mine :-D


hope ive helped just a little bit. i wish you well neaver beaver and everyone else with your decisions and possible adventures

xxxxxxxx : D

I too am having/had embryo adoption, basically I'm too old too! My reasoning was that other chances hadn't worked so adoption was next, this is just a very early start to adoption! It is no different but I (very hopefully) get to adopt a new born!

Good luck on your journey xx : D

I don't know about you, but for me, the mum is the one who is awake at night, the one who gives the education, love and everything to a child. Is the genetic material that important? In my opinion, the feeling of carrying your baby make it yours, not a paper that says that genetically is not yours...

I'm sure you will find great support groups and make the right decision.

Neaver - Check out the Donor Conception Network, it has help and advice on all things donor.

My first daughter was conceived through DEIVF in Spain and it makes absolutely no difference to me where she started out. She is biologically mine and a few genes make no difference to me at all. I'll admit it was a tough decision though, my husband and I had quite a lot of counselling before deciding to go ahead.

Hi folk

Not been on in a while. It was nice to read comments on this thread so thank you.

I think we are going to have egg donor treatment here. The treatment abroad is just too scary for us. How do u know which clinic to chose etc?

Looking at a clinic who work closely with IVI Valencia.

Well, that´s great. I hope you have all the luck in the world.

I did the egg donation treatment in Spain, at Irema Clinic (in Alicante) and I got pregnant at the first attempt with them.... I tried several times before but always with my eggs, and nothing.

Now I am so happy and I highly reccomend the treatment and the clinic, so if you need anything, just pm me.

Good luck!

just a little update from me, the spain bfp wasnt viable :-(, but i had been contacting serum in greece who specailise in testing lady bits blood. so they tested said blood from the mc and it came bk positive for.hidden infections, which incidentally causes recurrent early pregnancy loss. was put on antibiotics and DH and they advised me.to have a hysteroscopy with them. i did this on 4/2/14 and it was brilliant :-). they cleared scarring from infection and losses, my fibroids are still behaving, tc, hey gave me.a.mild d&c, and made all my bits pink again. also gave me deep implantation cuts and serum advises me to go straight for.embryo adoption after my first AF. i am now on 2ww.
ive also been put on light immune therapy, so clexane jabs, prednisolone and intralipids infusions. 1st was 7 days before ET, then 1 on ET. i have to have another on OTD if its positive and then a final 1, 10-15 days later. all in all its not so bad.

they told me i would get 3 x grade 1 frozen blasts, which i did, and i must say im very hopeful!!!!

these beautiful blast only cost €2000 so im hoping, that given my age, 1 has taken. would be wonderful.

will update when i know more - what i will say is no mattwr what the result, serum biomedical instutute in athens greece are absolutely fabulous! communication.is brilliant, penny is a caring lady who treats you like a person (not.a.cash cow) and treats you wuth respect and dignity. she also treats you individually not a one size fits all and i have a lot of faith in this lady. she mainly treats older women with a myriad of problems and more often than not is successful where others have failed.

i would recommend serum athens greece wholeheartedly, regardless of outcome !!!

Hi

Not been on here in ages. We have made a decision we are going to have Donor Egg treatment at GCRM in Glasgow. The whole thing about going abroad just seemed too stressful. On the waiting list now so treatment should be around November time.
