Hi, everybody! I want to ask your advice. Is there anybody here who have decided to go abroad to get its egg donation program& I’m American, but four years ago I married a guy from Germany. At present we live in Berlin. Two years ago both of my ovaries were extracted because I had large cysts on them. However, I have a womb, so I can conceive if
I use a donor egg. Unfortunately, egg donation is prohibited in Germany, so we have to go somewhere abroad to get a donor egg.
We have read loads of information about various reproductive clinics in the internet, and got interested in a Ukrainian one. It is called Biotexcom. The clinic is situated in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine.
Overall, we found loads of favorable feedbacks about it in the net and visited its official website where we could read about the clinic’s services and its fees.
Two weeks ago we came back from Ukraine and were really puzzled what we saw in a real life…
The clinic turned to be a small private house with various doctor’s offices. The halls are so overcrowded that some clients even had to sit on the stairs. The staff was too busy. I guess if
they could, they would run.
I didn’t like the clinic’s administrator. Her eyes, voice and facial expression proved that she was nervous and really tired of communicating with the patients. The phone rang every ten minutes, and the administrator didn’t have time to answer.
There were large queues everywhere. We had to wait nearly an hour before the doctor was ready to meet us
. While waiting in the queue, we got acquainted with one French couple. They were also getting their egg donation program there. They told us
loads of things about the clinic, and we were really shocked by the fact how careless the clinic managers were.
Firstly, the clients always have to wait in the queue. Sometimes they even have to come the following day to get a doctor’s consultation. Our new male acquaintance told us
that he had to wait nearly two hours before they were able to pick up his sperm, and it made him so tired and nervous…
We visited another reproductive clinic in Kiev named Isida. The atmosphere was different there: a quiet and empty hall, a smiling administrator and a very soothing doctor.
We’ve decided not to sign up a contract with any clinic yet. Now we are pondering what to do further: to contact one of Ukrainian clinics or look for something else? What do you think about it??? Maybe, there is someone else who has already been in Ukraine and had his egg donation program there???
