Five years after our wedding, I began to think that something is just not right. First, the doctors kept saying that I was OK. But when I turned 35, my gynaecologist recommended that I undergo a more detailed examination at Gyncare. At the beginning, the essential thing for me was to find out what the problem actually was. I thought that when I find out, we would be able to tackle it, and this will result in having a baby. But IVF is not like shopping for a baby in a supermarket. Success only came after 4 years of trying. When I successfully gave birth to my baby, I was incredibly happy and felt gratitude to all the staff at Gyncare. If it wasn’t for their constant words of encouragement, personal involvement and search for all the available possibilities, I would have given up trying after the first year. Having a child after 16 years was a true miracle for us.
In Hedviga’s case it was a race with time – we had to hurry up very much to make sure we managed everything that was necessary, while we could. It was a marathon, and I am truly glad that we managed to do this within the boundaries of the female fertility period.
For four and a half years, my partner and I tried to conceive a baby, but it always resulted in disappointment. I underwent various tests and examinations, and finally we were told that becoming pregnant in a natural way is highly unlikely for me. Suddenly, getting pregnant and having a baby seemed a distant idea. That’s why I was even more shocked when we were successful with the very first IVF cycle. The whole process and procedure at the clinic was very convenient for us: we were informed about every single step, and when we had questions (which we often did), the doctor willingly explained everything to us. I can only recommend Gyncare to others. If necessary, I would certainly make use of their services again. And my advice to others? The key thing is to think positively and not to wait too long. The essential thing is to start addressing the issue.
Katka’s case is a proof that sometimes nature really needs only a little nudge. However, it all depends on the biological set-up of the patient’s organism. A great deal of optimism and inner ease and a relaxed attitude are certainly important factors. I also recommend that my patients carefully avoid the advice of ‘Dr. Google’.
After roughly 3 years of unsuccessful attempts to conceive a baby, I realised I had a problem with getting pregnant. First, my gynaecologist kept sending me for various tests and examinations (thyroid gland, genetic tests, etc.) and told my husband to get a urology check-up. We then started to look for an IVF clinic. We chose Gyncare based on online reviews, and the location was the second criterion – we wanted the clinic to be close to our home. We found the Gyncare centre for assisted reproduction, and my husband and I later often agreed about how lucky we were. We thought it would be a drawn-out process, but it all took a surprisingly quick turn. We underwent IVF in Gyncare, actually two times in 3 years, and we were successful in both cases. If necessary, we would undergo IVF again.
Jana and her story are an excellent example of why our work makes sense. The fact that everything went so quickly and without any problems is a coincidence – it is not always like that, and medicine has its biological limits. We can perhaps make small miracles, but we are far from being omnipotent.
I am in the second month of pregnancy now. After 9 years of trying and hoping that it would one day come, we finally succeeded. The conclusion of our long efforts came surprisingly quickly – I became pregnant two months after my initial visit to Gyncare. And how does it feel? It’s incredible. After all those examinations and tests, the large number of diagnoses and problems both on my and my husband’s side, we turned to Dr. Herman from Gyncare, whom my friends recommended to me. Only then did I realise how many people had gone through the same problems as I had, and today they have little children, some of whom are already attending school. If I had known how simple it can be, I certainly would not have wasted my time by attending meaningless tests and examinations. I spent almost three years doing this. (Gyncare provided me with) excellent care, a willing and kind staff and a doctor who openly and honestly told me everything as it really was. I can only recommend Gyncare: When I heard the heartbeat of our baby for the first time I almost started to cry.
We were all thoroughly delighted by Anna’s case. After all, very few jobs will give you as many stimuli to happiness as working in a centre for assisted reproduction. The road to success is sometimes short and at other times long and thorny, but it is always worth walking.
