IVF Egg Donation
January 2017

We have found the whole experience at gymem absolutely amazing. Responses to emails are always prompt and having a personal international rep has meant we can have continuity along the journey.  I don't know when Martina gets to sleep .... she was even texting after midnight the day we arrived to check we reached safely after the plane had been delayed by a few hours arriving at the hotel at 3am.  Having airport transfers organised by the clinic made the whole experience of travelling very stress free. The pre treatment tests are cheaper and much more thorough than in the uk, I felt like I had had a full MOT! So we have returned to the UK with 2 grade 1 embryos on board and hoping to cuddle at least one of them in 9 months time. Praying hard."

The only thing that could have been better (not for the website just for the clinic) is .... it would have been good to have had the suggestion of embryo hatching mentioned over the phone during the days after fertilisation while we were waiting for transfer. In that way we would have had an opportunity to read up about it and decide as a couple rather than make a rushed decision, alone on the day of transfer. Having since read up about the procedure it sounds like it might have been a good idea given my age. This comment is not a Critisism but just an observation that might be helpful in advising other patients.

We really are greatful for all your help Martina and for your attention to detail. We will definitely be recommending your clinic. Hopefully, I will have some good news to report in 11 days. Take care!
