IVF Egg Donation
January 2014

I was nervous about undergoing fertility treatment in another country. From the initial enquiry I received prompt feedback to all questions and had a Skype consultation with the doctor which was really helpful. We were matched up quickly to a suitable donor & received all medication in the post. Any questions I had were responded to by the representative, Martina, in a timely manner. Anything she didn't know & needed medical input she took away and got the right answers. When the time came to go to Prague we were picked up at the airport & taken to our hotel which was great being in a strange city! Martina collected us at the hotel the next day to go to the clinic. Very impressed with the facility itself - brand new & pristine! This was another worry before we got there but we were reassured once we saw it. We met with Dr Mrazek at the clinic & he was extremely nice. We also met the embryologist who gave us an overview of the blood test results they had taken from my husband. All the staff speak good English so there wasn't a communication issue. We returned home & Martina kept me up-to-speed with how the fertilisation process was going & we had 2 good blastocysts for transfer & 2 to freeze which we were delighted with! The transfer took place 5 days later & I flew home the next day. It was a difficult decision to make to proceed with an egg donor due to failed ivf cycles with my own eggs but I wanted to have a child & felt this was the best opportunity for us. I am currently in the 2 week wait & feel confident & hopeful that it will work. I would recommend anyone in a similar situation to do this, the service was excellent & the staff efficient & knowledgeable. Thank you to all involved in the program.
