Egg donation in Spain

Treatment: In-vitro fertilisation (IVF)
Provider: IVF Treatment Abroad
Date: Apr 2016

In March 2014 I got into an egg donation program with a clinic in Spain. I’m from Germany and here, unfortunately, ED is forbidden by law.

It took me some month to find that clinic by searching the internet for recommendations, statistics and all those stuff everybody in my situation will know about… They presented with good numbers, high success rates and acceptable prices, so we chose that clinic. We had a coordinator, with whom we corresponded by email and who gave us all the instructions. The doctors that she referred to when answering our questions were always different ones, which made me wonder how much they might now about our special case and how individual such a treatment could be. 

We had 1fresh and 3 frozen transfers, all of them unsuccessful . From transfer to transfer we felt more like we were just one couple of many and like nobody really cared about us and the reason why we didn’t succeed.

So I started again to search the internet for an alternative. 

And that’s when Ruth’s name came up. I read through her ivf. Treatment abroad site and decided to contact her. I got an answer almost instantly with many information and the offer to chat via Skype. So I spoke to Ruth and that’s all it took to convince me, that this was the right place to go  for us.

We talked about the former treatment and she suggested to do some further tests and also recommended one clinic in Greece which she thought would be best for us. Just a short time later we went to that clinic  to do some tests, get matched to a donor and do the paperwork .

We got a proven donor and 9 out of 10 retrieved eggs fertilized and developed into very good blastocysts that had to be frozen, because my endometrium wasn’t as good as it should have been to do a fresh transfer. So I went for a frozen transfer some weeks later. Everybody at the clinic was very warm and welcoming and made me feel like an individual and not just like a number.

And I got pregnant!!! We were so happy that after all those unsuccessful attempts and the thereby associated stress it finally happened!

Unfortunately the pregnancy didn’t develop further, but at least we got pregnant and now we are quite confident that the next try might be successful.

All this time Ruth guided us through every step, explaining everything, making suggestions and always being available when needed: You have a question? Email and you’ll get an answer within the hour. Need to talk? You Skype Ruth, talk to her and she’ll make you feel better, or at least comfort you, instantly. 

You can feel that she has a lot of experience and, even more important to me, plenty of empathy and the real ambition to help you make your dream come true: a child of your own. 

I wish I had known about her before , because now it feels like we wasted one precious year.

So, if you’re thinking about whether you should try with ivf. Treatment abroad/Ruth  I can only recommend to go for it! You’ll be in very good hands and you’ll be seen as the person you are and not just another client who needs to be handled.

Good luck to everybody !!! ‘
