I decided to write here because I need your help. I’m 37 years old, and I suffer from early menopause. Actually, I started to have problems with my periods 5 years ago. Everything started with short delays, and 10 months ago was the last time I had my periods. I’ve passed all possible tests, and my gyny diagnosed me with early menopause. Two years ago, I married a very good man. We love each other greatly, and we want to have a child. As I’m not able to ovulate any more, the doctor advises us to try egg donation. However, this procedure is very expensive in the place where we live. We decided to go to Ukraine and try our luck there. We contacted one Ukrainian clinic. The name of this clinic is Biotexcom. My husband and I decided to choose this clinic, because we’ve found loads of favorable feedbacks about this clinic. However, the things were quite different when came to Kiev to meet the clinic’s representatives.... Firstly, we didn’t like the way we were received. When we came to Ukraine, we were met by the translator and driver at the airport. The clinic supplied us with the apartment and meals, and it was really nice. Nevertheless, when we came to the clinic, we were unpleasantly surprised by the way we were treated there. Firstly, the clinic was located in a private villa overcrowded with visitors. There wasn’t even a vacant place to stand. The clinic’s administrator turned to be a very unfriendly lady. We heard how she had a loud arguing with one couple, and it was a little bit shocking.... The clinic was really overcrowded with visitors, and each couple required nearly half an hour to consult a doctor. We had to wait nearly two hours before the doctor was ready to meet us. Overall, we liked this fertility specialist, but during our talk her phone rang several times, and she answered to both calls. We visited another clinic in Kiev. Its name was Nadia. The things were quite different there. We were met by a courteous administrator, and the doctor was extremely soothing... However, the clinic was empty. Now we have to decide which clinic to choose... Frankly speaking, I liked the second one, but it was sooo empty. Bitexcom representatives can’t organize their work properly, but they do have patients... question pregnancy pregnancy, fertility 19 9 2 comment 7466231 pregnant?? 2017-03-23T14:33:13Z 2017-02-28T20:55:35Z Jennifer jennifer_j8dyso8zk7z6m So I finished by birth control month and from there stopped taking it, my first day of cycle was Jan 25th. We have not used protection since then. My 28th day would have been a week ago. I am now a week late and yesterday I had a bit of spotting. No other symptoms of pregnancy but the spotting made me think of implantation. a week ago and yesterday I took a test and both times got a negative. I realize it can take some time for your period to come back after getting off BC but this long just seems ODD to me because I have always had the easiest, "normal", regular period ever before BC.&nbsp; Could I still be pregnant even with those negative tests, if the spotting was just yesterday?? anyone else experience this? Sorry for the long winded post! question 4 3 1 comment 7482221 being pregnant after 4 miscarriages 2017-03-23T14:31:25Z 2017-03-22T14:20:51Z Grace Evans grace_evans_e5tke1093o069 Hello,&nbsp;<p> I experienced 4 miscarriages in my life and I want to say it is very hard for every women.<br /> Every single day was like a nightmare, I couldn't accept my misery and helpless. The life was not important to me anymore. The one thing I wanted was to be a mom. I changed 2 clinics, did lots of tests, used to take different medicine, underwent 4 cycles of ivf but with no results. I was in despair but once I told to myself, wet noodle, it's not a time to give up, stand up and move on.&nbsp;<br /> haha, fortunately, it's worked for me, I started new cycle of de ivf and now I'm 8 weeks pregnant.&nbsp;<br /> The only thing I want to tell is never give up, God sees your&nbsp;efforts, He will help you..&nbsp;</p> problem pregnancy pregnancy, concieving 4 3 1 comment 7470201 new round after 3 BFN 2017-03-23T09:45:37Z 2017-03-06T09:56:22Z Gwineth Black gwineth_black Don't know if this particular question were asked before but it was I can't find it sorry<br />Well, this is going to be my 3rd ivf&nbsp;round overall and 2nd egg donation ivf round<br />this time I have changed clinic and even country of the treatment but that's not an issue at all<br />the thing is that I am not really sure if it is ok to go for more than 4 ivfs&nbsp;in a row..? I mean is that really damaging to your health or maybe it is all very individual? Or you wouldn't advise it to anyone?&nbsp;<br />well, I am just thinking about the contract to conclude I have 2 preferable options: 1. 5 attempts ivf contract with the refund in case of 5 BFNs and 2. 2 attempts ivf with the transition to surrogacy.&nbsp;<br />I think &nbsp;that I might get advice for the local fertility specialists but I would like to know the issue before.&nbsp;<br />Thank you a lot! question 30 3 1 comment 7481534 Spring! 2017-03-21T17:01:33Z 2017-03-21T17:01:33Z Grace Skogen grace_skogen We are into our second day of spring.&nbsp; What is your favorite springtime activity with your kids or baby?<br /><br /> <br /><br /> <img src="" title="Image:" /> question 0 1 1 create 7388229 Girls 1930 Name Elimination 2017-03-21T09:02:44Z 2012-04-13T22:48:00Z rachelrazzle rachelrazzle Copy and paste from the post right before yours and remove just one name.
