Cyprus for our ivf treatment

Hello all,

Not been around a great deal as had a lot going on in life in general - moving house, working, being ill and imminently becoming grandparents (DH has 2 adult children from a previous marriage).

DH and I have been together almost 3 years, ttc for 2.5 of that time and had all the tests offered to us. All come back normal for age (I'm 45 now, he's 48) except low AMH suggesting poor ovarian reserve and probable low egg count. NHS consultant said only choice was privately funded donor ivf (no NHS treatment as was 43 by then).

Anyway, after some soul searching we decided to go with 1 cycle of ivf and started looking into costs, success rates etc. Found UK out of our budget range so started exploring international options. Well, it appears not only have we found a clinic but, we've had initial discussions with the team - patient coordinator and consultant - and are looking at treatment in the autumn. Success rates in our age group are fantastic (75% average for detectable heart beat at 8 weeks post transfer) and the price is competitive.

Have got an appointment with our gp coming in to discuss the investigations we need doing before we go to Cyprus and to see how we go about organising them, what they'll cost etc.

Really excited to think we've got the chance of parenthood ahead of us.

Hi remember, what great success rates! Are they for using donor eggs or your own?

If my current cycle fails I may look to go abroad but don't know where to start!

Can I ask how much the treatment in Cyprus will be?

Lastly wishing you all the luck and success with your treatment, I'll look forward to hearing all about it x

Thanks for your kind message Goodthings. Those rates are for donor eggs - the consultant, Dr Murat, only offers donor egg treatment to women over 40 as results are so much better.

The treatment is 5000€ (though there's a discount voucher worth 500€ via the website and includes everything apart from my drugs and pre treatment investigations - bloods and a scan or two. Accommodation for 2 people for 11 nights half board 4 star hotel for duration of treatment, transfers from airport to hotel and between hotel and clinic plus a few other things is 1000€.

Everything so far is free of charge including calls with consultant and the clinic choosing a donor by matching appearance and education levels etc.

Thanks so much for the information and it does sound much cheaper than treatment here.

Thanks again and wish you all the luck and success xx

Thank you. I am impressed so far and hope that continues right through our process as, at 45, thus is likely to be our last chance - unless I win the lottery!!

Good luck, we are looking into IVF abroad soon. We just need to save up but I've got time on our side luckily. We've been trying for 4 years, realistically can't afford IVF but we will try and hope for a miracle in the process.

Good luck. I went abroad to SERUM in Athens and I now have twins. Best decision of my life to go abroad. Good luck

Got our list of blood tests and medications from the clinic and we're off to see our gp next week to get the ball rolling.

We're hoping that the bloods can be done easily. 1 of the medications I'm already on; one is available over the counter and so I'll only need 1 prescribing - and we hope our GP can do that privately without referring on to a consultant.

We need a copy of the HyCoSy I had done in 2015 but it looks like we won't need any other tests doing as things stand at the moment.

I'm 42 and my husband had vasectomy about 12 years ago. So we have decided we would love to try and have a baby together x
I don't want to use Donor eggs and am aware that my eggs my be past their sell by date so prepared for no baby if that's the case 😕
I have made appointment with GP to get bloods done and see where we go from there x

Can I ask which clinic your looking at? I've been looking into team miracle (Cyprus ivf centre) and serum. It's so hard to make a decision. Good luck
