    Does a cheap fertility clinic deserve trust?

    Does a cheap fertility clinic deserve trust? 14th Apr 17 at 12:03 PM
    Hi! I have some problems with my fertility and this is the main reason why my hubby and I can’t conceive. I’ve contacted the doctor and she diagnosed me with PCOS. I know that this health issue is rather spread around the world. Loads of ladies with PCOS manage to conceive every year. I have already experienced several treatments, but they didn’t work with me. I took metformin. It did helped me to reduce my weight, but again, I didn’t get pregnant after having taken pills more than 2 years. I had a surgery, and it didn’t work with me too. Now, my gyny recommends me to try egg donation. We will do IVF with donor eggs. For me, it’s the best solution for us as I’m sick and tired of taking pills. Both my hubby and I dream to become parents. Now, we’re searching for the clinic to suit us. We’ve visited several reproductive clinics. Both of them are situated overseas as ED is forbidden in the country where we live at present. The first clinic seems to be a reputable one. We’ve found loads of feedbacks about it on various fertility forums. It has rather good success rates. In addition, we quite liked the ED package they offer. They offer free accommodation and transportation services and don’t charge much for their services. These are the things we really liked about this clinic. However, there are some things that make us a little bit alert. When we visited the clinic for the first time, it was too overcrowded. We had to wait nearly two hours before the doctor was ready to meet us. We quite liked her. She seemed to pay attention to every single detail: she studied the results of our health tests very attentively and asked us quite a lot of questions. The consultation lasted nearly 45 min. Both my hubby and I felt very tired after our first visit to the clinic. My hubby is a very hot tempered guy. He said we shouldn’t deal with them. I still hesitate. I liked the doctor we met there. In addition, their prices are more than favorable… What do you think about cheap overcrowded clinics? Do they deserve trust?

    This doesn't sound good; especially the cheap and over crowded part. It sounds like a cut price factory and who would be giving the donation, as it's probably unregulated.


    If you both found queuing tiring and your husband is quick tempered, could you cope with lack of sleep from having a newborn or teething baby and realise that children really do try you sometimes ?

    Hi! Firstly, I’m really sorry to hear about your health issue. Unfortunately, PCOS is rather spread nowadays. Nevertheless, you shouldn’t give up. My sister also has PCOS. She managed to conceive after having reduced her weight. She also started to work out regularly and eat healthier food. As for the clinic, I would choose the one you feel really comfortable with. If you find something uncomfortable with the clinic, it’s better to quit it.

    Hi, ladies! Thanks for posting your replied to my initial post. I should say, that I also know that there are quite a lot of women with PCOS who are able to conceive. In addition, there are quite a lot of treatment methods that I may use to overcome my fertility issue. So there is still a hope for me to get pregnant naturally. However, my hubby does want to become a hubby as soon as possible. This was the main reason why we applied for DE IVF.

    Have you tried Methyl Folate for a few months? Folate is the natural form of folic acid but folic acid can actually be harmful in some people.

    This is a much simpler and cheaper alternative than fertility treatment added to which, baby is getting the essential folate rich environment to start out life.

    Sometimes being over eager doesn't help.


    I didn't think I could conceive, but eventually got a hospital referral several weeks in advance. I had my suspicions, which were confirmed on examination, that I was pregnant, and the doctor said it was very possibly because I had relaxed, having been given an appointment.


    I know someone else, who having no luck decided that it was meant to be, and gave up....then became pregnant...twice.
