Post subject: IVF with egg donation
I'm 42 and had a sterilisation reversal 2 years ago which left me with just my left tube open. I got pregnant last year but miscarried at 8 weeks.
I'm considering trying Ivf with egg donation and was wondering if anyone can recommend any clinics in the uk or abroad that do this?
I would appreciate any advice xx

I know Care clinics in the UK have an egg donation programme. Manchester, Notts and Northampton being the ones with the best results/shorter waiting lists. It's £400 (non/refundable) to go on the waiting list and it's anything from 3-12 months depending on donors. I think the cost is around £5000 - £6000 for a cycle.
There are also some good reputable clinics in the Czech Republic - these use only anonymous donors by law. The cost is around €5000 (so much cheaper than here - and the exchange rate is excellent at the moment). They usually have waiting lists too as they are becoming increasing popular with women from the UK.
Reprofit in Brno do DE as do their sister clinic in Zlin (can't remember the name). They are very modern, clean and professional. Most correspondence is done by email and they speak good English.
There are also clinics in Prague and Oostravia; as well as Spain.
Have a look on the Net. Fertility Friends has lots of info/threads about cycling and DE abroad; with travel guides, prices, links and directions plus flight info.
Hope that helps a bit. My twins were the result of treatment at Reprofit - and they were very good. Best of luck,

I'm the same age as you Hayles also had a reversal 2yrs ago and only have a left tube No pregnancies for me though and i also looked at reprofit last year after being told my tube was blocked, got an initial quote of around £2,900 (with the exchange rate at the time) but that was with my own eggs but included going to blast and ICSI ,
I didn't fancy donor eggs but the idea of tandem cycling seems like a really good one As then you have the option as to which to go for and you haven't wasted a cycle if you don't respond well or your eggs don't fertilise
If i had decided to go down that route I would probably have gone with them , but as Julie said there are quite a few EU clinics offering similar packages .
Have you had any NHS investigations since your reversal ? To see if there's a reason you haven't conceived since, you're entitled to the exact same treatmenton the NHS as any other woman who wants to conceive , I know some docs try saying you're not as the reversal is a private op but thats bull , so if you wanted further investigations first then they are available .
However i do know from experience that the NHS do everything very slowly and it's taken me 18 months from being first told my tube was blocked to getting an op in September to try and open it so i can understand why you wouldn't want to waste more time . Good luck with the IVF if you go for it and if you ever want to chat then the reversal ladies are there for you xx

I had a deivf cycle in Slovakia (Gyn-Fiv in Bratislava http://www.gynfiv.sk/en/) in March, we are pregnant!!! Was very pleased with the clinic.
Can't recommend the clinic highly enough - we got so much better treatment there than we did here in UK. They were so nice to me.
They are charging 4300euro for fresh DE cycle, no waiting list.
If you need anything just ask and I will be happy to help.
Good luck with ur cycle
