! I’m new on this site. I’ve seen hundreds of messages here concerning both, successful and unsuccessful results of IVF and I want to share my own story of all the attempts to have my own child. Maybe it gives someone a little hope.
To begin with, my name is Anna and I’m 52. Like many others I had no children and for a long time I thought it was impossible to have at least one sweet child. But let’s not make haste.
I got married 12 years ago and I have been trying to get pregnant since that very moment. Of course my husband and I decided to find out what’s wrong after hundreds of ineffective natural attempts. Having passed some tests and analyses, it became clear that I had PCOS. I knew that the only way to have a child was IVF, considering my age. So I started to choose a clinic, where such treatment was legal and possible to do at my age. My DH and I chose a clinic in the Czech Republic. I had 2 cycles with DE there but they were unsuccessful. The doctors told me there is no reason to give up my attempts thus I decided to keep going in this direction. Unfortunately, I was 48 at that moment and that means I can´t do the next cycle in Czech clinic. And we again started our search. I was reading dozens of sites and forums trying to find any suitable place…and voila! We found out that in Ukraine there are no such restrictions related to IVF. Before we arrived there, we had lots of hesitations. Firstly, we’ve never been to that country and we thought it might be not the best place for TTC. But after careful consideration I agreed at least to try this opportunity because of the price. To my great surprise, Ukraine is a lovely country though there were some unpleasant moments. After usual preparations, tests, stimulations and all that stuff…it was a miracle! I succeeded in the only thing I was dreaming about for about 10 years and thanks that I’m a happy mother of Lily!
P.S. There is always a way out, you just need to believe and not to give up!!
