  • Successful IVF Following Cancer Treatment At Embio In Greece

Successful IVF following cancer treatment at emBIO in Greece

Treatment: In-vitro fertilisation (IVF)
Provider: emBIO Medical Centre
Date: Jul 2017

"I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 32 years old while at the same time I had my wedding booked and plans to start a family. We had to postpone everything since treatment was our first and main concern and had priority over anything else. I had to start chemotherapy and was warned that it may have an impact on my fertility, something that brought me a lot of grief at the time. I was faced with a lot of very serious decisions regarding my cancer treatment and knew that any kind of family planning would have to be put aside. About two and a half years later I decided to stop my medication and try to conceive naturally. After a year and a half of trying without success, we found out that my 'ovarian reserve' had been affected by the chemo and I also had a blocked fallopian tube. When I came in to EmBIO for my first consultation and scan with Dr Paraschos, I instinctively thought he knew what he was talking about. He had made his research concerning my ordeal with cancer and all its details before seeing me and created a protocol to use less drugs and work with an emphasis on my natural cycle so as not to trigger the cancer. Although I was told that my chances were low, I felt that he and his people would do everything possible for me.

I believe that no other clinic would have paid such attention to my case. My doctor and staff at Embio made me feel secure and hopeful and reassured me that I was in the best of hands and so it turned out.
I definitely recommend emBIO clinic to everyone. That’s exactly what I have already been doing! From the doctors, and in particular Dr Paraschos, to our IVF coordinator, to the nurses and receptionists, everyone was really compassionate and unforgettably lovely to us! God bless them all! I am a healthy mother with my beautiful miracle daughter in my arms and a wonderful partner who was and is my rock!"
