Hi, I am 33 years old, FSH good at
I also have to add that I lived off of fellow IVFers success stories, viraciously! I made amazing friends online via iVillage and the blogging ART circles, who provided me with an unbelievable amount of great info through the whole process and were the best coaches. I found that this support was a major part of our final success.
I took advantage of all the resources and info I got from friends.
We did IVF abroad for two reasons. We are in WI, and there are not any great options for ART around here. Sadly. Only 2 clinics are doing IVF, one of which had totally let us down after our last inject IUI which led to all the ectopic mess. They were very unprofessional. the other clinic, well, just doesn't have a great reference. So after all the failed IUIs we were pretty much left with no good options for new REs locally. we started looking around and my DH had this 'crazy' sounding idea of going abroad for affordable IVF.
We chose Hungary for two reasons. First, I started networking via ART blogs and found great references for this clinic from a fellow IVFer from the Boston area. I did more research and decided to contact them and figure out the details.
Second, the cost made it easily affordable. The IVF with ICSI cost $2600
UPDATE --- Met with my dr... who by the way is wonderful.. I love her! So kind, caring and just brilliant!
Dr was happy with the cycle overall, just wants more eggs next time (mee too!).
