Lynda & Max, UK
Hi I am writing this review as I guess like everyone reading this now you are thinking about going through IVF or egg donation abroad, like us we read every single review going to make sure we picked the right clinic for us.
Our brief history: We are from England, Age: both 40, 4 IVF attempts + 2 frozen
When we start this whole process we were very nervous about making the right choices and to make sure we were doing the right thing, we were impressed with the reviews online with GYNEM so we made our first visit to Prague to take a look at the clinic and was really happy with the service provided, we were picked up at the airport and taken to our hotel and picked up in the morning.
Martina is really kind!!!
The clinic by far was the most modern cleanest and helpful we have been too including the UK!!!
Our tip would be to stay in hotel in centre of Prague 1 and get a taxi to clinic as there isn't a lot to do in that area where the clinic is situated.
When we talked to the doctor we pretty much made our decision to go through egg donation with GYNEM straight away. He was really kind and helpful and told us all the information we needed.
The cost of IVF & egg donation is a 1/3 off what it is in the UK but all the tests & help wouldn't suggest this in fact I was so impressed with the level of service and help I'm surprised they can get away with charging so much for this in the UK!!!
Everything is anonymous & designed to make the procedures as stress free as possible for both of us.
To find a donor it only took two weeks to find a suitable match example; hair & eye colour weight &height specifications hobbies and education level of suited donor.
The morning of donation everything is organised like clockwork and hassle free and after 3/5 days when you go back in for implantation the staff couldn’t look after you any better.
We got to see the embryos when they were putting in and once done unlike the UK you get to rest for up to 45 mins after to let things settle.
I would certainly build in a holiday with your stay to chill out and take your mind off any thing you worried about also Prague is a lovely city with lots to offer great shops, restaurants & lots of history.
I am glad to say after our egg donation in Prague we flew back the day after and did a pregnancy test after two weeks which we were happy to find was positive and after a additional 2 weeks we had our first scan at 6 weeks and all was fine, both my husband and I are over the moon and looking forward to the rest of our life's. Hope this helps put your mind at rest.
