Hi, I am new to the forum. I have just left a comment in the other forum related to going abroad for treatment. I am 45 and will require donor eggs. I am seriously thinking about going to Spain. Apart from the one clinic mentioned, does anyone have any experience? Comments?

Would love to hear from you, share experiences, etc.

Thanks!
Gracie

Hi Gracie,

I did go to Spain to FIV Madrid at the beginning of 2010. We had a good experience there but ended in a bfn. Due to time zone differences between Alberta/Spain, we sometimes found that it was difficult to get same day answers and booking international flights at the last minute was abit costly and hard to arrange especially due to an air strike that was looming at that time. My dh speaks Spanish fluently so he had to be the translator in alot of the cases as the person there who spoke the best English left..that was also hard as not sure that dh asked the right questions sometimes.

So that was the cons. The pros were that there was no real waiting to enter the donor program. They recruit from the university so you are usually looking at eggs from the under 25 range. the clinic was well organized and we did feel that they did a good job. We found a clinic in the US however where the prices where reasonable but was easier for us to travel to. I am currently 34 weeks pg with g/g twins. If we would have had frozen eggs in Spain or not have found this US clinic, we would have gone back to Spain.

If you want advice on the Spanish clinics, you might want to try some of the UK forums as people there travel to Spain more often than they do from Canada/US so you will find a better range of people to give you ideas on which clinics.

Hope this helps

Hi Gracie,

we went to Europe as well, Czech Republic. And the experiece was excelent.The clinic is nice, they do speek english(although I'm Slovak-Canadian my self, so I speek their language.)I (41)also needed a egg donor, and the sistem is the same as everywere else- students. You communicate through the internet with them, the waiting was not very long, best thing ,their drogs are different, no injecting....we had 10 embryos, 9 were grade 1, and now I'm proud mommy to a 15 month old girl....
I can nothing but recommend the clinic,still have 7 more embryos(already offered for donation).....

Feel free to contact me for more info....
you can also check out their web: www.reprofit.cz

Good luck

Hi Gracie,

Congratualations.

I am considering doing a DE in Czech. I am communicating with Marcela coordinator for IVF vacation to Czech. They work with the clinic in Zlin. I also want to compare with other Czech clinics. I am curious to know why you chose reprofit clinic instead of the others?

May I ask about the centre you found in US? I am very interested to learn more. Many thanks in advance for sharing your experience. Mytime
