    Does anyone know if the clinics in Spain have a Body Mass Index cut off for treatment? We need donor eggs and I have a low ovarian reserve

    I look forward to hearing from you

    I've just come back from visiting my consultant here in the UK and he suggested that I reduce my BMI to 32 before commencing treatment (it's currently 36). This was a recommendation rather than a requirement so I guess you should be OK.

    Have you heard anything from any of the clinics in Spain re this? [IMG]smileys/smiley5.gif[/IMG]

      Body Mass Index

      Hi there!
      I am from the Us and just had an IVF on April 29th at IVI Barcelona. I am 5 feet 7 or 1 meter 70 and was at 91 kilos. With Christmas and the anxiety i gainned 5 more kilos.

      My doctor suggested and asked me to looose weight down to about 85. And I did! No excersice. No hunger. Just having meat, veggies and fruit. Non fat milk, soy yogurts for desert. NO BREAD or Cheese!. So it CAN BE done.

      The doctor did not tell me: You are too fat, we are not going to do any procedure. She just asked me to loose the weight to improve my chances and in case I do get pregnant, have a healthier pregnancy w/o High Blood Preassure, Sugar Levels, etc.

      Hope this helped!

      Goold luck
