What would you like to know?

In the UK I know there is a waiting list of about 2 years in my area for eggs which is why we went overseas.

We also used donor sperm.

just any information about it from people that have already experienced this!!
yes i live in the uk, in essex and fertility treatment is not available to single woman that is not gay either, on the nhs, so i am having treatment at a private clinic!!
eggs and sperm were both available at my clinic and i only had my 1st appointment at this new clinic on the 12th april, because the 1st clinic i went to lost a nurse due to ill health and then one of the consultants retired, leaving them unable to offer any treatment, so i had all my blood tests and counselling in place and started treatment on Tuesday, my egg donor is receiving treatment paid for by me in exchange for half her eggs, so i'm crossing my fingers it works as i only have enough money for one treatment!
i had the scratch done on tuesday and will be using glue also when i have my embryo transfer at the end of june!!
i have been very excited but also very nervous but i have a great friend who has been there to hold my hand at every appointment, which i think has been invaluable to me!!
