Frozen embryo transfer in Spain

Treatment: Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET)
Provider: Centro de Reproducción Asistida de Marbella (CERAM)
Date: Feb 2014

Our fertility journey started in 2006. After 2 years of heartache, frustration and cancelled appointments with the NHs we decided to go for treatment abroad.  We found out that my husband had azoospermia and myself a genetic disorder so we knew we needed to go down the donor route.

 We quickly found Ceram and we were impressed with their statistics. We were also impressed with the initial contact we had via emails. Our questions were answered quickly and effectively by the lovely Fiona.

We travelled to Ceram in Nov 2008 for our initial consultation. We were greeted by the Ceram team, including Dr Benito. We had the consultation with Fiona who explained things clearly and answered our questions. We finally felt like we were being treated as a couple with a dream and not names on a system.

We left feeling positive and confident that we were in safe hands with Ceram.

We returned for a frozen embryo transfer in May 2009 and again in Oct 2010. Sadly these resulted in a negative outcome for us. Yes we were heart broken but we were determined to return as soon as we felt ready. We remained confident that Ceram did all they could for us.

In May 2011 we returned again for FET full of hope. This time all went perfectly and we received the result we had waited a long time for.......a positive pregnancy test. After an extremely worrying and anxious 9 months our beautiful daughter was born in Jan 2012. We soon realised we wanted further children. We went back to Marbella in May 2013 for FET. It was a wonderful experience introducing our daughter to Dr Benito, Fiona and the Ceram team. Sadly we had another negative but returned very quickly 2 months later.

In April 2014 we will be welcoming twins in to our family. Although our journey with Ceram is over they will remain in our hearts forever. We made a wish when we went to Ceram and they granted us 3 in return. One day we will go back taking our 3 children with us to show them where our jouney began and ended.  We will be forever indebted to Dr Benito, Fiona, the rest of the team, and our donors for helping us on our difficult journey and giving us our happily ever after.

Thank you Ceram from the bottom of our hearts.
