Hello all! It has been awhile since I have been on here, I had to recreate an account as I cannot get into my old one! No issues, everyone is probably new anyways ha-ha. I am starting to wrap my head around our next plan of attack on this crazy roller coaster ride and I enjoy talking to you all while its going on, it seems no one quite understands outside of this world! So we are planning on heading to Greece (Newlife IVF) in the spring, i will likely go for my testing in January and then follow along with whatever happens from there. I am wondering if anyone on here would be open to discussing their experiences with that clinic (if anyone has been there) and experiences with Egg Donor IVF. This will be my first time with Donor eggs and my first time going international, to say im nervous is an understatement! 


Anyways, happy to be back and hear about/from everyone! This is such a great thing when going through such a huge process.

Welcome Britt!


As someone who was in your position not too long ago, I would suggest reading along or joining the 2018 donor buddies thread. There is a great group of people there who are all very knowledgeable and supportive. I haven't personally been to Greece (we went to the Czech Republic) but there are a few ladies there who have been to clinics in Greece and some who are planning to go there. If you have any questions in general about the process feel free to send me a message!

4 failed IUIs (2015 and 2016), 1 failed IVF (2016)

DE IVF 2017 - one embryo transferred, ended in miscarriage

FET 2018 - BFN

No embryos left - taking some time to decide what is next.

I also wanted to jump on and say hello and welcome back! Definitely hop over to the 2018 Donor Buddies thread. 


I'm going to Greece for DE IVF, too. I'd be more than happy to chat if you want to PM me. My husband is going over in a few weeks and I'll go later this year!
