Testimonial – Caroline – IVF with Egg Donor

All going well we will have a sibling for our little girl in August 2016
We first contacted PRAGA Medica in January 2015. It is now December and I am 8 weeks pregnant. I am 45 years old with a three year old from a natural pregnancy. After losing a baby in 2014 due to a chromosomal disorder, my periods became irregular and blood tests followed by a scan diagnosed an early menopause. Egg donation was our only option to add to our family. We were recommended a clinic in Barcelona by my consultant gynaecologist for the high success rate. We looked into this clinic and did our own research of others. Gest IVF promoted by PRAGA Medica stood out for us mainly because of the reviews but also for the price being more affordable than the Barcelona clinic. There were a number of reviews at the Barcelona Clinic that told of feeling it was more about the money for the clinic. We contacted both clinics at the same time. Jana from PRAGA Medica responded promptly and telephoned at a conveniently arranged time for us. The Barcelona clinic kept ringing in the morning when we had chosen the afternoon option (due to work commitments) meaning their first couple of calls were missed. Meanwhile Jana had sent through more useful information and her professional, efficient, extremely likeable manner meant that we didn’t pursue the Barcelona Clinic further. The process through PRAGA Medica was so straight forward, Jana helped us every step of the way. After our initial consultation with Dr. Alexander we chose the Maxima option with the TOP package and assisted hatching on one of the two embryos agreed to be implanted. Medication was organised and brought from the clinic for the duration of each treatment. We had our first fresh embryo transfer in June followed by a frozen embryo transfer in August. Some are lucky enough to fall pregnant on their first transfer, the Clinic’s stats show that there is a good chance of this and it is good to have a positive attitude but be prepared (easier said than done) for a negative result. My second fresh embryo transfer in November, performed by Dr Monika Polakova, was successful. I sadly miscarried one of the embryos at 6 weeks but amazingly a scan the next day showed I still had one embryo growing. It’s early days but all going well we will have a sibling for our little girl in August 2016. Our experience with PRAGA Medica and Gest IVF has all been positive and we would highly recommend them to others looking for similar treatment. The clinic was clean and efficiently run, the doctors knowledgeable and professional and Jana was the perfect person you need to coordinate everything for you from accommodation and transfers (a great guy called Jan did most of our journeys) to interpreting and generally anything you have questions about – if she doesn’t know she will find out for you and always with a smile. We found Prague itself to be an enchanting city, the transport system is so easy to use, the people are friendly and we felt safe at all times. We took our daughter with us on two occasions, she especially loved the many play parks, Prague Zoo and the outdoor swimming pool at the ‘beach’ in the summer. Caroline and Mike, England.
