Hi, everybody. I came here to ask you to help me choose a clinic for my egg donation program. Several words about myself. I’m 30 years old. I was diagnosed with PCOS at 22 and have been TTC for nearly 5 years without any positive results. After my last IVF the doctor advised us to try to conceive with the help of a donor egg. Unfortunately, cycling in the USA is too expensive for us now. My husband and I got interested one Ukrainian clinic. It’s situated in Kiev and its name is Biotexcom. We decided to contact this clinic because we found loads of positive feedbacks about it on various fertility forums. We even spoke with one woman who had her egg donation program in Kiev last year and give a birth to lovely son. The boy resembled her greatly though he was conceived with the help of a donor egg. We contacted them via the phone, and we liked how they talked with us. However, when we came to Kiev we were a little bit frustrated. Firstly, we didn’t expect to find out that the clinic was so tiny. It was situated in a small private house. We visited it twice and every time it was overcrowded with people of various nationalities.
We met loads of Chinese and Indian patients there. The atmosphere was noisy and unpleasant. The staff was constantly going forwards and backwards. It seemed that the telephone was ringing for ages and nobody wanted to answer to it… The clinic administrator showed us by her facial expression that she was bored to death by our question why we had to wait in the queue to meet the clinic’s representatives. We used to visit another Ukrainian clinic the other days, and everything was different there. It was called Nadia. Firstly, the clinic halls were empty. The administrator was friendly, and the doctor soothing. We liked the way we were treated there, but we didn’t like that the clinic’s halls were empty. To be frank, it looked like we were in a horror film, because not a single soul was there. We didn’t sign contracts with any clinic and went back home. Now we have to decide whether to come back to Ukraine and choose one of these clinics, or go and try to get the egg donation in other clinic or maybe another country. I just want to get to know your opinion about both of these clinics. If the clinic is overcrowded with the patients, but the staff is cold and unfriendly, what does this mean??? I need your advice because I really don’t know what to do further…
