Need explanation and help!

Our doctor at Bio texcom explained us the following, I definitely can add to the discussion. Several surgical procedures can correct problems or otherwise improve female fertility. However, surgical treatments for fertility are rare these days due to the success of other treatments. They include:
Laparoscopic or hysteroscopic surgery. - These surgeries can remove or correct abnormalities to help improve your chances of getting pregnant. Surgery might involve correcting an abnormal uterine shape, removing endometrial polyps and some types of fibroids that misshape the uterine cavity, or removing pelvic or uterine adhesions.
Tubal surgeries - If your fallopian tubes are blocked or filled with fluid (hydrosalpinx), your doctor may recommend laparoscopic surgery to remove adhesions, dilate a tube or create a new tubal opening. This surgery is rare, as pregnancy rates are usually better with IVF. For hydrosalpinx, removal of your tubes (salpingectomy) or blocking the tubes close to the uterus can improve your chances of pregnancy with IVF.
I’d myself been through lapos before the actual treatments. In my case those worked out, I conceived.

I’m here to answer some of your your questions/concerns. Why shouldn’t I if it can sedate you somehow. So, let me start with that we failed to find a surrogate from our surrounding. We had to choose the clinic first, only then were able to choose a surrogate. That was the most attractive surrogate for our profile requirements. We were sure that she had absolute understanding of the process because she was an intelligent person judging from her education and profession. She was there exclusively with the desire to help people become happy having their small sense of life. She was a noble woman of 32. She had already had 2 children and carried our child in the exact manner that we would like her to. First we met our surrogate on the 12th week of her pregnancy. This term is believed to be the safest one. So, the staff had all the preconditions to testify the success. That was the first time we could breathe again. Before it we were exhausted. You know, when people are overly optimistic, it’s much easier to be let down by circumstances. We didn’t think the world was going to end the next day, but also didn’t like to hang our hopes on things working out on their own. Simply by the power of positive thinking.

I understand your fears. But look, we went to Ukraine for treatments. Earlier we found out that Ukraine is one of the very few surrogacy friendly countries in Europe. I’ll tell you about the pros of it. Unlike other nations that limit or even ban surrogacy, in Ukraine the intended parents of child are considered to be biological parents from the moment of conception. They are specifically named as biological parents in the birth certificate without any mentioning of surrogate mother. Importantly, the surrogate cannot legally keep the child after the birth. The child is considered to legally belong to the prospective parents from the very moment conception. In fact, there has not been a single reported case of a disputed custody claim arising over a surrogate parenting arrangement. In contrast, the laws in several US states (and in Russian Federation) allow a surrogate mother to keep the child after its birth, regardless of the agreements between the intended parents and surrogate mother.
In biotexcom they have legal experts and lawyers who provide all patients the necessary legal support. You can also have a heart-to-heart talk with them and ask for advice as well. Of course all pros and cons should be weighed. I tried to tell you about everything that made us trust the institution. With its help we became parents. It’s worth all the contradictions. Just find the silver lining. Try to be calm and look on the bright side!

Hi ladies. Here are things that helped me. Figuring out the people who could sit and be a great ear when I needed it, not just dismiss or want to avoid the reality of IF and how I was feeling in this new pursuit. Avoiding people who made me feel worse. Finding special things to do when otherwise my mind would run - movie, series, book, day trip, walk on a beauty day, etc. Connecting with an IF counsellor who could help me reframe my thinking and plan in advance how to better get through events and situations that gave me anxiety. And ultimately reminded myself that giving myself my best and healthiest shot at this does not involve negative self-talk or torturing myself emotionally - finding key statements to repeat helped. Things like “I am doing the best I can and giving myself my very best shot.” “I will get through this and be kind to myself in the process.” “I believe in my body and even if it takes time, I know I will become a mother!!!’’ In addition to the spermogram doctors at BioTexconduct sperm analysis for apoptosis. Conducting this medical test embryologist determines presence of the damaged sperm cells which prevent successful conception and can cause child’s DNA damage. In the case of cells’ poor quality, doctor prescribes appropriate medication, afterwards perform reanalysis and successfully fertilize the egg. Karyotype analysis is the part of a standard analyzes set (karyotype test shows the total number of chromosomes, the sex of the person being studied, and if there are any structural abnormalities with any of the individual chromosomes which can cause child’s diseases). Conducting programs of the egg donation and surrogate motherhood doctors calculate the ideal “window of implantation”. This is the most successful period for the embryo transfer without disturbing its structure and endometrium integrity. Starting to work with the infertile couple, their specialists use only individual approach in each case. First of all, members of the medical staff carry out detailed diagnostics of patients in order to identify clearly the seeds of the disease or reasons of the unsuccessful IVF attempts. There are no identical protocols as BioTex team does not work in the traces. Because positive result of any medical program is their main goal! Doctors of the Kiev center walk the line of the latest methods of treatment. So, for example, embryologists use the most successful method of working with blastocysts, namely, embryo transfer on the fifth day. They are believed to be more developed than 2-3day embryos, so have better chances to make their home inside.

Hi, here’s some of my background.
Me - 40 yo when started ttc since 2014. Dh - 42 yo. dx: PCOS, blocked fallopian tubes. amh <3,2. Dr suggested PGD as I had a miscarriage the previous years before going ivf route. Plus dr suspected me to be a carrier of Wilson disease - a very rare treatable disorder. I had already been through 2 failed ivf cycles with oe when dr told us to move on plan B - egg donation. Though we got prego with the 2nd round only. We’re happy to have our ivf kid now & are planning to pass another cycle for a sibling with the same biotex clinic. To be fair, there are other clinics in Ukraine that are great as well. Moreover you will find similar plans there. The reason they chose biotex is because they independently read a lot of great reviews online. There isn’t as much info in the US forums as there are in European forums. Evidently because Ukraine is only a two or three hour flight for most of them.

Hi, lovely. We passed de ivf overseas which was absolutely new exciting journey for us both.
During my cycle I joined ‘cycle buddies’ forum and it was a great source of support. There’s loads of other forums too, and the women that I’ve ‘chatted’ with on the site were extremely kind and helpful.
The other thing that really helped me was humour. I kept the radio in my car set to the 24 hour comedy station.My husband and I watched funny movies.
I was more antsy during the second week. And my husband was very good at reasoning with me not to test early. We waited until the day the clinic told us. I was really glad we did.
Anyway, thoughout the two weeks, I made sure I kept busy. I did yoga more often.
I know this phase is tough to go through. Sometimes it feels like in dog’s time - years than weeks. But you will know the answer soon enough. Have my fingers crossed for you xx
