Hi, ladies. I’ve decided to write here because I need someone to help me understand what to do further. I’m 37 years old, and now I’m having a very tough PCOS. I was diagnosed when I was in my early twenties. When I was 28, I underwent a successful treatment and gave birth to my lovely son. However, it was the only time I got pregnant. Now I’m married for the second time. My second husband is 5 years younger than me, and he dreams about having a baby son or a baby daughter. We’ve been trying to TTC for nearly 3 years, but our result was BFN. I had already consulted my gyny and passed all necessary tests. She advises us to IVF with donor egg to get better results because of my bad anti-muller test.
My husband and I are German, and egg donation is forbidden here, so we went to Ukraine to ask a Ukrainian reproductive clinic to assist us.
Actually, we’ve contacted Biotexcom. It’s situated in Kiev, the capital city. We’ve chosen this clinic because it we found loads of favorable feedbacks about its services in other sites.
However, after our first visit to it, I had more questions than answers. Firstly, the clinic turned to be very tiny. It’s situated in a small private mansion. It was a little bit surprising, because I thought that the clinic would be much bigger.
Secondly, we visited it several times, and both times I was extremely overcrowded. When we paid our first visit, the clinic’s administrator told us that they had too many visitors that day. She offered us either to wait nearly three hours or come the following day. She added that it would be nice if we came early in the morning, because we would have more chances to visit a fertility specialist then…
They do have so many patients, but why don’t they organize their work properly??? Maybe, it’s a peculiarity of the Ukrainian NHS….
We visited Biotexcom for the second time the following day, and again it was overcrowded, although we came at 8 a,m.
The clinic’s administrator told us that they were going to open three more branch offices to organize the clinic’s work properly, but she didn’t tell us the time when these offices would be open.
Overall, we liked the fertility specialist, we’ve consulted. She looked very positive, but, unfortunately, we didn’t get the opportunity to talk with her in a relaxed atmosphere. When entered the doctor’s office and started to talk with the doctor, the door opened several times and the junior medical staff came in to ask the doctor about something. The doctor also had several phone calls, and she answered to them!!!
Now I have question: if the clinic has so many patients but can’t organize its work properly, does it mean that it’s a good one???
