Experiences


L & A (43) - the Netherlands - 2013

After three IUI attempts and four IVF attempts the gynecologist in Ghent (Belgium) made us clear that we were going to spend our lives only with the two of us, until my partner mentioned the option "egg cell donation". The gynecologist was completely surprised and indicated that egg cell donation was another story and that you have a 40 to 60 percent chance on success. After much thinking and deliberation we decided to go for egg cell donation.

Then arose the great question 'Where do you carry out such an egg cell donation?' In the Netherlands it was not possible because we were not considered to be "a medical problem". In Belgium and Germany it turned out that you had to bring your own donor with you, and they did not take into consideration your appearance. So when we searched for possibilities abroad Spain, Cyprus, St. Petersburg and the Czech Republic passed along. The Czech Republic seemed to be attractive to us especially since you would not have to fly back (although not proven we heard some stories that after replacement of the embryo and after flying back home, unfortunate miscarriage followed. That we wanted to avoid at all times).

The Czech Republic was also interesting for us because "they" offered a kind of all-in package: the offer and the price were clearly stated. Money is not the most important but since we had to pay the last IVF attempt by ourselves, we looked critically at the price. Housing was included and we had to travel to the Czech Republic only once (in case of Spain and Cyprus you had to travel at least twice to the destination). The important thing was that they took into account my appearance and my background (such as education) during the selection of a donor.

Next we contacted Frans Zweers - he works as a representative between the clinic in Ostrava and the client. Frans has guided us very well, he looks at the person and is willing to find out everything for you, so you can travel to the Czech Republic with a peace of mind. We could contact him at any time and he was very prompt in answering questions.

When we arrived in the Czech Republic, he was also awaiting us and he escorted us to the clinic. Everything together gave us a very good and familiar feeling, which was very important to us. After a week's stay in the Czech Republic, we could travel back to the Netherlands.

When we went for the pregnancy test, the result was positive! What happy we were, and we are! We were also very pleased that we have chosen for this egg cell donation at that time. Meanwhile, I'm already 23 weeks pregnant and we are overjoyed.
