    My ED journey ... just need your help

    Hi, everybody. I’m here to find your help and advice. I have very tough PCOS. I was diagnosed with this disease since I was 12. My first periods were very irregular. When I was 16, I was very much overweight and hairy. Then I started to take metformin. I lost nearly 20 kg and my periods started to come regularly. When I was 27, I gave birth to my first child. My hubby and I decided to conceive the second one when I turned 30. We’ve been TTC for 2 years. Then we tried several IVFs but none of them came with BFP result. Now we want to do the third IVF. My gyny recommends me to do IVF with a donor egg, but it can’t be done in Germany, the country where my hubby and I live at present. We decided to try our luck in Ukraine. We’ve chosen Biotexcom. The clinic is situated in Kiev, the capital city of Ukraine. It has quite a lot of favorable feedbacks on various fertility forums, so we I decided to visit it too. However, when we came to Kiev we were a little bit frustrated. Firstly, we didn’t expect to find out that the clinic was so tiny. It was situated in a small private house. We visited it twice and every time it was overcrowded with people of various nationalities. We met loads of Chinese and Indian patients there. The atmosphere was noisy and unpleasant. The staff was constantly going forwards and backwards. It seemed that the telephone was ringing for ages and nobody wanted to answer to it… The clinic administrator showed us by her facial expression that she was bored to death by our question why we had to wait in the queue to meet the clinic’s representatives. We used to visit another Ukrainian clinic the other days, and everything was different there. It was called Nadia. Firstly, the clinic halls were empty. The administrator was friendly, and the doctor soothing. We liked the way we were treated there, but we didn’t like that the clinic’s halls were empty. To be frank, it looked like we were in a horror film, because not a single soul was there. We didn’t sign contracts with any clinic and went back home. Now we have to decide whether to come back to Ukraine and choose one of these clinics, or go and try to get the egg donation in other clinic or maybe another country. I just want to get to know your opinion about both of these clinics. If the clinic is overcrowded with the patients, but the staff is cold and unfriendly, what does this mean???
    P.S. Maybe there is someone here who has gone to Ukraine to get an egg donation program. Please share your experience with us… I need your advice because I really don’t know what to do further…

    Ugh, those clinics sound ghastly. Listen to your instincts. I have no experience with either.

    I did do a frozen embryo transfer at Reprofit in Brno, Czech Rep. and it was a very good experience. The clinic is cheerful, clean and busy. The nurses and staff, albeit a little brusk, are friendly and the doctor was GREAT! I didn't fall pregnant from my transfer but their success rates are very good for egg donation and they are very inexpensive. They may even be able to help you with own egg IVF as they've had pretty good success with PCOS patients.

    I hope this is helpful!

    Hi, dear! Really sorry for you having so bad experience in that clinic. I’ll advise you to check their success ratings. They may have so many patients cause of high success ratings and affordable prices. You may just tell your program manager about the things you didn’t like during your visit. If they’re real professionals, they’ll fix everything, I hope. If you don’t like them, of course, you may quit them.

    Hi, ladies! Thanks for your messages. They’ve become a real for me! Before going to Ukraine, we did googled some information about this clinic on various fertility forums. We found quite a lot of favorable feedbacks about this clinic on various fertility forums. We even found the fact that they’ve helped a 66-year-old woman to conceive. Loads of ladies wrote that they liked their fertility specialists. These are the main things that make me hesitate.

    Hi, dear. If I were in your shoes, I would also check the way they treat egg donors. Cheap clinics like to deal with poor young women. I would check that the woman who agrees to donate her to me would get the best from the best. Don’t you think it’s fair? How are they going to find a donor for you? Will it be a short description or will you meet a donor?

    Hello, ma name id David and I'm working as account manager in surrogacy clinics (Ukraine). If you need any help, I can help you. Our clinics are very famous and most programs we make for people abroad. In Ukraine all programs are cheaper than anywhere and we not inferior to the quality, we have a huge database of donors from which you can choose suitable for you that will fit your phenotypic characteristics.

    Hi! Would recommend looking onto surroparents.org. It deals with egg donation and surrogacy. Moreover they offer free consultations. So this might be a good chance to have a private talk with their patient coordinator in London. Our journey started with the site. In a couple of days we signed the agreements with the clinic we passed de ivf in.
    A little background. Long ago I was diagnosed on endo and pcos. I'm 38, eggs undergone aging - they won't do with ivf. So we were recommended de. Taking into consideration our medical history and 1.7 ttc we booked 5 shots program. It's confirmed with the guarantee. If you fail to get pregnant 5 times they refund money paid.
    We experienced treatment overseas and I'm sure it's more attractive financially than doing it for ex. in UK. We had our attempts, all meds and the guaranteed result for 9900 euro only! And this is so easy to check the prices on their sites.
    Hope this helps. Good luck
