IVF Egg Donation References
IVF is one of our most popular procedures, and you can read why on this page; with couples writing about every aspect of their experience with us, from the warm reception at the clinic to the unrestrained joy of getting pregnant. In the video you can also hear a proud mother who had almost despaired of conceiving and see the best referee we could have in the shape of young William.
After several miscarriages and discovering that my AMH levels were very low, my partner and I decided that our best option for having a much wanted second child was through egg donation.
We had been in discussion with a fertility clinic in London about IVF and we learnt that using donor eggs would involve a much longer and complicated process as well as being extremely expensive. So we decided to consider going abroad for the treatment.
We researched fertility clinics in various European countries and visited some online fertility chat rooms to listen to experiences of others. Gynem in Prague was getting very good feedback and so we arranged an initial consultation by skype.
The doctor we spoke to had excellent English and answered our questions very knowledgeably and in general we had a very good gut feeling about the clinic. Part of the appeal was that their process was really straight forward; the costs, timelines etc were very clearly laid out as part of their egg donation package. (For the record, Gynem was very competitive on cost compared to other clinics in Europe and the UK). There was also a very short waiting period prior to starting the treatment unlike at other clinics.
In the run up to the treatment, we had almost daily contact with Jana Poupe who answered all of our questions really quickly and helpfully and on the day of the transfer she was extremely supportive and kind. Their premises were very clean and modern and the process of the transfer was seamless. My impression was that Gynem's facilities in Prague were newer and more sophisticated than the clinic that I had visited in the UK and the published success rate is certainly slightly higher.
We are currently waiting for the result of the transfer and have frozen some eggs should we not be successful this time. Regardless of the outcome, we would not hesitate to recommend this clinic to others. Travelling outside of the UK for the treatment was absolutely no hassle as everyone spoke English (including the embryologist) and everyone got back to us really quickly when we had questions or queries.

The entire experience of the treatment was pleasant!
First we got in touch with Tereza through mail and she helped us in every step. She was patient and responsive to every query before we visited the clinic. At the clinic, the entire staf was friendly. Especially Veronica (my husband is still smitten over by her smile!!) and Dr. Mrazek. Tereza was again very helpful during our stay, taking care of each and every thing. Even she became our tour guide me Prague. Prague is a great city for vacation. The city absorbs all the stress of treatment that you go. Now I am 12 weeks pregnant!
I would definitely recommend this to others. We felt they are not behind money and provide professional services.

Thank you for everything. It was one of the best clinic that i have ever seen and all the people who work there are the best. My wife and me thank all of you.

Right from the first contact with Martina I had a good feeling about choosing Gynem for our Fertility treatment. All my emails received quick and informative responses. The doctors were very professional and helpful. The clinic was very modern and immaculate. We had previously had two failed IVF attempts in the UK and only had one fair quality embryo to transfer on each failed attempt. The result from our treatment at Gynem was far better than we could have imagined, resulting in 6 good quality blastocysts. We also had an amazing time in Prague as there were so many things to do to fill our days in between when we had to be at the clinic. The fact that we got to enjoy a holiday at the same time really helped take the stress out of our treatment and I felt so calm throughout the whole process. We are currently waiting to find out if this cycle has worked but whatever the outcome I would definitely use Gynem again and would recommend them to anyone I knew that was considering fertility treatment.

I have recently had treatment at Gynem Clinic in Prague from the initial contact, visit and treatment the communication has been excellent. My co ordinator Martina has always been prompt in her replies and been able to reassure me. The clinic itself is brand new and to a very high standard. I chose the clinic due to waiting times, medication included and location. Although I had a chemical pregnancy I would not hesitate and will use the clinic again in the future.

We were very much impressed about the clinic and the staff in general. The environment is very clean and serene, doctors and all the nurse/co-ordinators we met were very helpful, patient and understanding, and above all, honest. We really admire the smiling faces you always wore. We'll definitely recommend Gynem to anyone who wishes to have IVF treatment abroad.
NB: This is trully from our heart.

After two failed attempts at IVF in our home country, a colleague introduced me to the idea of travelling to Prague for IVF. Her friend had undergone treatment in Prague and she felt that the experience she had there was a more helpful and informative one than that at home. After contacting a number of agents for clinics, my husband and I made contact with Medical Travel. They stood out above the rest for us from the onset. Both agents that we dealt with throughout the experience – Barbora and Richard – couldn’t have been more helpful or resourceful and were always available to find answers to our queries efficiently and in a timely manner – all this counts when you are going through such a terribly emotional and personal journey. What won us over was the fact that a Skype call was offered and arranged for us to talk with a member of the medical team at the clinic they liaised with. This allowed us to relay a lot of the fears and concerns we had about the treatment in advance of any commitment to treatment and it helped to assure us that the decision to undergo treatment abroad was the right choice for us. When we got to the clinic, Richard personally met with us and facilitated our engagement and interaction with the admin and medical teams. The experience was as painless and effortless as it could be on our part - given the circumstances. It also helped to have the process explained to us as we went through each stage. We attended Gynem Clinic in Prague. The clinic was a new, purpose built and extremely clean and modern facility with an excellent medical staff team. Overall, we couldn’t have asked for a better or higher class service than that which we received from Medical Travel and the Gynem Clinic. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend Medical Travel to a couple who should find themselves in similar situation to us. I’d score the service we received 10/10 – top class!

My name i Elisabetta. I am Italian and I live in Norway With my husband Christian who is Norwegian. They say the third time is a charm. It certainly was for me and my husband since I got pregnant thanks to the Third try with egg donation: our litt le angel Adrian was born on the 6th of this month. The most precious gift for us to get for our wedding anniversary. The doctors and nurses, the whole staff at Gynem are superbly qualified and nice and empathic and took great care of us. And the client representative who assisted us gave us the best assistance ever. Great quality and great prices. I definitely recommend Gymen to whoever needs fertility treatments. It's definitely worth it.

It was after a year when we realised that we may not be the lucky ones to have a baby naturally, we therefore thought of turning to IVF. Immediately after deciding to go down the route of IVF, it was apparent that it is very stressful task from wh ere, how and who. These are the questions which naturally are very stressful. I contacted several clinics in Spain, India and Czech. The experience from clinics in India was particularly poor with no or very little response. Spain was quite expensive and it was not a good option as IVF in the UK would have cost almost the same. We than contacted Richard via email. He was extremely professional in getting back to us within matter of hours. He explained us the complete process and answered all our questions very carefully and took his time in making sure we were satisfied. After having satisfied we decide to go to GYNEM via Richard. The whole experience was stress free. My wife decided to travel to the clinic for first appointment and had face to face meeting with the doctor and Richard was present all during the process (including airport pickup). The medicine were posted to the UK and it was all very simple on how to use the medicine (with some help from YouTube). And we than arrived for the main process and decided to take a holiday in Prague and have the IVF done. The entire Medical process was very smooth. Perfectly timed. And I must mention that Gynem clinics is way better that our NHS hospitals. Very clean(spotless). Staff speaks English so we didn't had any communication issue. The doctor , embryologist and nurses did brilliant jobs. We are now expecting our first baby in January 2017 into 3 months of pregnancy. I would like to thank Richard, team at medical travel,doctors and nurses at GYNEM for wonderful work.

I would highly recommend Gynem clinic. My husband and I live in Prague but we are both English speakers and so our co-ordinator to book our appointments and to answer any questions we had between appointments. From the very first communication over email and phone, coordinator was friendly, helpful and supportive and we really felt that she couldn’t do enough for us. When we went for our appointments there was a lovely warm reception for us and every single receptionist, nurse and doctor that we met were all very professional and caring, we really can’t fault the service they provide. We felt we weren’t just another couple but that they took an individual approach to our treatment and were extremely thorough in explaining all treatments in detail and answering all of our questions. The positive experience that we had with Gynem made the treatments so straight forward and took away a lot of anxiety and stress that we had been feeling prior to starting with them. I believe that this relaxed atmosphere helped with our treatment and we are now 13 weeks pregnant!!!

After five attempts in the UK our dream is coming true thanks to GYNEM fertility clinic.
Although we are miles apart we felt at ease from the start of our journey. It was a good feeling, very professional yet very friendly, nothing was to much trouble. All the staff we had contact with were great.
Our co- ordinator was fantastic helping us all the way, easy to contact replying to our questions very quickly we feel we have a friend for life.

My experience with Medical travel was totally amazing from the start to the end:). Martina was so helpful and helped me all the way through the process. She answered to all my emails and also reassured me so many times. I longed for a baby for almost 10 years. I tried many times Ivf, artificial semanation, you name it I tried it. I had alot of heartache, and nearly gave up. Then i came across this website and I see that it made many women fulfill there dreams. The doctors were great there and made me feel so important and not just a number. After trying on the second time I finally got pregnant. I couldn't believe my eyes. My husband and I were so happy and our hearts full of joy. Now my baby is 10 months old, she is my princess. Our life is now complete.

Medical Travel from the first time I contacted them has been nothing but professional and prompt with their dealings with us. In the beginning, I was hesitant to consider doing my ICSI overseas due to the possibility of additional stress of being far from home and the fear of not knowing the language and what quality of medical attention we will receive. However, as soon as we contacted Medical Travel and communicated with Barbora (who was always very helpful and answers all our questions), our fears subsided. We also did a lot of online research to see other people's reviews and they are also all positive. It was then not very hard for us to make the decision to go ahead with Gynem.
The support we got before, during and after our treatment is absolutely brilliant! The facilities of Gynem are comparable if not more superior than the ones I've seen in the UK and for the fraction of the price, it's really a no-brainer! The service is also superb, we got picked up at the airport by a professional transportation company (and got ourselves a free city tour), we were brought to the clinic on our first visit to make sure we know where we're going, plus Barbora was there each time we have an appointment to make sure that we are supported. She was our translator and really all-round support during our treatment. She even gave us tips on where to go and lent us her Prague zoo card!!
I am now 7 weeks pregnant thanks to the capable hands of the Gynem medical staff. I cannot thank them enough!!! I will certainly recommend them to everyone!!!

We would like to highly recommend Gynem Fertility Clinic - we are both 42 years old and left it quite late to have a family. We had two IVF cycles in London and were not impressed. We did not know how different it could be but we did feel like it was a factory in London and had no success and no real explanation except that we were too old. We found Gynem after searching for IVF abroad and got in contact with Jana Poupe who speaks and writes very good English. We decided to go over to Prague to meet Jana and Dr Mrazek (which you can do though Skype) as we wanted to make sure it felt right. We were very impressed with the clinic and the team are so lovely. Jana helped us with looking for a hotel and getting us picked up from the airport so you felt you had someone looking after you from the start. We decided to go ahead with Donor IVF and on our third try we have found out that we are pregnant! We have received such excellent care and we felt the staff really looked after us and that we were not just a number. Jana is so lovely and to whom we class as a friend as nothing is too much trouble. She was always happy to answer any queries we had to put our minds at ease and kept us informed of progress. Don't hesitate to look at Gynem if you want a excellent service with wonderful people along with up-to-date facilities. We also love Prague and will be back to visit :)

We feel very blessed to have found and been treated by the Gynem clinic in Prague. The service that this clinic provides is absolutely excellent. They organise pick up from the air port and take you to your hotel, they also pick you up from the hotel and take you to your appointment.
All the staff speak good English understand your circumstances and are very friendly nothing is too much trouble, they do give that personal touch.
Dr Mrazek the head physician is brilliant and he understands your situation he has the ability to make you feel very relaxed and comfortable.
Dr Thomas Rieger is the embryologist he lead us to a private comfortable room and informed us how our embryos were doing he explained everything to us and what was going to happen next.
Dr Lubos Vicek performed my transfer he was very through and checked and double checked the embryos were transferred correctly. So much so his procedure has resulted in very happy news for my husband and I. I really will never forget Dr Vicek nor will I know how to thank him.
The one person I would also like to thank is Richard Kvech he was our coordinator, non of this would have been possible without him, he organised everything from airport pick up to appointments even helped me with my lack of computer skills, had the patience of a saint with all the questions I sent him, he is brilliant and answers your questions straight away.
I would recommend the Gynem clinic 100 % and if you do get a chance ask for Richard as your coordinator.
Yes we feel very blessed to have found this clinic.
Thank you to every one at the Gynem clinic

We found you all very welcoming and helpful and the pre, during and after care attention was and still is very good. I would have no hesitation in recommending your clinic to people that are looking to go through IVF.
The only thing I would say, and this is no criticism of you or your colleagues as everywhere we have been is the same, is the lack of information about what happens once the implant takes. With this in mind I suggest that you source some midwifes possibly in different countries etc that could speak to the first time parents and explain what will happen once the pregnancy has been confirmed. For example when the scans take place, blood tests that will be carried out, food that needs to be avoided and stuff like that.
Anyhow as I have said I would have no hesitation in recommending you in the future.
In the meantime thank you very much from both of us for all your help and kindness.

I highly recommend Gynem Clinic/Medical Travel, it exceeded my expectations. I was nervous at first to travel to Czech Republic for treatment, but after two failed attempts in Canada, it was my next best affordable option. My first contact was with Medical Travel and my coordinator Jana was truly excellent! She responded kindly and quickly to all my emails and answered every one of my questions. She made me feel very comfortable and confident about traveling to Prague. I was very impressive with the clinic, it was professional and modern, and the staff spoke English and were very friendly. There were no surprises or extra fees, it was truly the best decision I made. I was kept update throughout the whole process of embryo development and was lucky to have 5 great embryos on day 5. We transferred two excellent quality embryos and froze three. I am pleased to say I am 5 weeks pregnant!

We decided to start IVF after two failed attempts of IUI here in Ireland. After doing a lot of research between clinics abroad and here in Ireland we decided to try Gynem Clinic in Prague. From the first time I emailed Martina everything was explained to me and she answered all my questions quickly and informatively. Choosing Gynem Prague was the best decision we made. From the very first visit with Martina and Dr Mrazlek we felt so at ease. We made two visits and I was able to get my medications here in Ireland and had my first scan done here which meant we didn't have to spend as many days abroad. Our time in Prague was so relaxing and I have to say that being abroad made everything less stressful. We were picked up a the airport and brought to the clinic. The clinic is new and pristine and I can't fault it one bit, I have visited 3 different clinics in Ireland and it has to have been the best. We only had the egg transfer on Sat 1st Sept so we are still waiting the result but regardless this is definitely the clinic I will be recommending to anyone looking to have IVF and if I have to go again here is where I will be going. Thank you to all the staff at the Gynem Clinic it was an absolute pleasurable experience.

Choosing Gynem Fertility Abroad is the best decision we have done. First, we did a lot of research and compare UK clinics to clinics abroad. It turned out that Gynem Prague ticked all the boxes. One of the main reason we choose this clinic is the success rate and the credentials of Dr Milan Mrazek.
The clinic is spot on. Very clean and tidy, and all facilities and equipment are superb. When we first met Dr Mrazek it gave us more confidence to go for it. He is kind and very professional. Jana Poupe our representative is also very good and answers all our questions. We exchanged a lot of emails and asked too many questions, and she answered it all promptly.
The whole of the team Gynem is very friendly and professional and the clinic itself is very impressive. We are very satisfied with the service. It's excellent.
We are having a positive result now but also thinking of doing it again in the future for more children.
We highly recommend Gynem Fertility in Prague. Travel was so easy plus we enjoyed exploring the beautiful city of Prague. Thank you so much to all involved in the program.

Excellent clinic, found Doctor Mrazek very professional and helpful and speaks excellent english. The treatment we received from this clinic was excellent and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Any time we visited the clinic all the staff were very helpful and could not do enough for this, we were never left waiting and the staff always offered us tea, coffee or a drink of water. Doctor Mrazek advised us on the best possible treatment and answered all our questions, we never got this level of service in Ireland, we were constantly being rushed through consultations. Doctor Mrazek even carried out the procedure himself. Unfortunantly our treatment was not successful on this occasion but it was due to no fault of this clinic and we will be returning for more treatment. Jana was our client representative through this whole process and I dont think we could have done it without her. She set up all appointments with the clinic for us and met us at the clinic, organised hotels, taxis and anything else we needed. She was so helpful, pleasant and could not do enough for us. She constantly emailed us and kept in contact, any time I emailed with a question she emailed straight back with an answer. She was an absolute angel to us through out our treatment. We would recommend this clinic 100%.
