Hi, everybody! I’m infertile due to a bad oocyte quality and a tough PCOS. I have already had a laparoscopy and three BFN IVFs. When we had our last IVF protocol, the doctor told us that I need a donor egg to conceive. We live in Germany, and, unfortunately, this procedure is forbidden here, so we have to go somewhere abroad to get a donor egg. There are loads of country where egg donation is allowed, but we got interested in one Ukrainian clinic – Biotexcom. We decided to contact it because there are many favorable feedbacks about this clinic in the internet. We also liked its fees and services. Two weeks ago we visited Kiev, and here is my feedback about this clinic… Firstly, we were unpleasantly surprised to find out that Biotexcom is a small clinic situated in a tiny private mansion. They do have loads of patients, but they can’t treat all of them properly. The administrator, clinic managers, doctors and other staff are very unfriendly and formal there. They treat you like one of many infertile clients who come to them daily. In addition, they try to spend as little time as they can on talking with their clients. We didn’t like it very much, because we had so many questions, but the clinic’s representatives were too busy to answer them. The clinic’s halls were overcrowded with people of various nationalities. Some people were even sitting on the stairs to wait for their turn to consult a doctor. We waited nearly two hours before the doctor was ready to speak to us. Overall, we were a little bit shocked by a cold and formal reception in this clinic. If they have so many patients and can’t organize their work properly, do they provide all them with qualitative medical services???
P.S. We met one couple from Germany. They were getting an egg donation in Biotexcom. They were also displeased with the way the clinic managers treated their clients. For instance, the husband complained that he couldn’t hand over his sperm because it was a large queue of other couples on that day and he had to come another day. As a result the couple had to stay in Kiev longer than they expected. They also told us about the apartment they were provided by the clinic. It was a tiny flat with old furniture far from the city center. They driver always picked them up in an hour after their phone call, and they came to the clinic too late, and had to wait in a big queue. This feedback about the clinic made us also alert. If the clinic can’t organize its work properly, why do so many people come to them??? Is there anybody here who have gone to Ukraine to get their infertile treatment???

Hi, dear. Really sorry for you having such a bad experience with that clinic. Why have you chosen them, hub? I don’t think reputable clinics should treat their clients like this. If I were in your shoes, I would quit them nearly at once.
P.S. If you’re still interested in them, you can check their success rates. I wish you good luck, dear! Xxx

Hi, naughtykatty. Nice to meet you, dear! We really did our homework before we decided to visit them. We googled some information about them on the internet and visited quite a lot of various fertility forums. Biotexcom seems to be really popular among infertile couples around the world. Most of the feedbacks about this clinic were positive ones. However, we also read some feedbacks where their former clients complained that they had to wait in large queues or their program managers didn’t pay enough attention to them. We even found the fact that they had helped a 66-year-old woman get pregnant and give birth to healthy twins. Isn’t it amazing?

Sounds great, hun. I would also check the way they’re going to find an egg donor for you. It should be a young woman with a strong health. She should have a healthy heredity. In addition, I would also check how they are going to treat the donor. This does a great job, so she deserves the best of the best. Don’t you agree with me?

Yes, I quite agree with you!!! I wouldn’t deal with the clinic that earns money on young poor women. I want my donor to get the best of the best. Our program manager told us that all the egg donors who donate eggs for Biotexcom patients get decent money compensation. The clinic pays the transportation, living and medical expenses. However, not all women can become egg donors. The clinic accepts only women from 18-25 years as egg donors. These women should pass a rigorous medical checkup. They must be moms of at least one healthy child. In addition, the clinic studies their family trees to find out whether their parents, grandparents, siblings, uncles and aunts are free of hereditary diseases.

It’s awesome that the clinic creates an extremely comfortable environment for egg donors. I think it’s a good sign. Hun, but how would they actually find a donor for you? Will you be able to see her?
P.S. As far as I know, in some countries ED isn’t totally anonymous. A child can get some information about his biological mom when he becomes an adult person. I think you should check this too once you’ve decided to ED overseas.

Egg donation is totally anonymous in Ukraine. It means nobody will get any information about the egg donor, the woman who donated eggs and the baby conceived with the help of donor eggs. This was one of the reasons why we decided to choose Ukraine. Before visiting the clinic for the first time, we sent the clinic’s representatives a short description of the woman who would suit us as an egg donor. Our program manager told us that they have a large database of the women who agree to donate their eggs. The clinic’s specialists will choose the donor with the help of a special software. If we sign up a contract with them, they would show us the donor’s 3D photo.

Hi! Woodylady, the things you’ve written about the way they’re going to choose a donor for you sound great. Nevertheless, will they charge any additional fees for this. As far as I know, some fertility clinics do this… What about Biotexcom?
P.S. I have a close friend. She cycled in Spain. They had to pay a huge sum of money for ED because of additional tests…

I don’t think they would charge any additional fees from us. We have to sign up a contract with them. According to this contract, the clinic would charge only a fixed sum. As we’re going to book several shots, our payment will be divided into several installments. We may make the payment either in cash or via a bank transfer. However, if you don’t do certain tests on time, they may fine you. Do you think it’s OK?

Fertility treatment is a complicated procedure. It involves loads of complex manipulations… Your fertility specialist should know whether you’re healthy enough to take part in the ED IVF or not. You’ll take hormone medicines and it may influence on your health greatly. They may also use your health tests to predict the success rates of your program. Dear, will you use fresh or frozen eggs for your program? As far as I know, fresh eggs are supposed to be more effective than frozen ones…

We plan to use fresh eggs. My RE says that they are really better than frozen ones. When oocytes are frozen, they may be damaged in some way. In addition, handling frozen oocytes requires a certain level of expertise. Not all REs are able to handle them correctly. If we sign up a contract with them, the fertility specialist will study my menstrual cycle. He would choose the best day for the embryos transfer. I’ll have to take birth control pills to synchronize my periods with the donor’s ones. My hubby’s sperm will be picked up too. It will be used to fertilize the donor’s oocytes. Then three embryos will be transferred into my uterus. I will have to take hormone medications to support my possible pregnancy. The first fertility test should be done in two weeks. If it’s a positive one, I’ll have to take hormone medicines up to the twelfth week of pregnancy. This is the way Biotexcom does ED IVF. What do you think about it?

This procedure is a standard one, hun! I don’t see anything special in it… But I’m keen to know how they are actually going to select an egg donor for you. Some clinics offer only the donor’s profiles. They don’t let you see the donor’s photos. Others can offer the photos of the egg donor when she was a child. What about Biotexcom?

When we were going to visit the clinic for the first time, we sent them a short description of the woman who would suit us as an egg donor. We specified the weight, height, eyes and hair color of the woman who would suit us as an egg donor. Our program coordinator told us that they have a large database of the egg donors. They use a special software to find egg donors for particular DE IVF. If you sign up a contract with them, you’ll be able to see the donor’s 3D photo. This they way the clinic matches egg donors for their egg donation programs. What do you think about it?

I quite like the way they are going to find an egg donor for you. Seeing a 3D photo of an egg donor sounds really wonderful. I’ve visited the official website of Biotexcom. I should say that they have very reasonable prices. Hun, have you made up your mind what to do further? Will you visit that clinic?
P.S. I’m just curious to know your final decision.

We haven’t made our mind yet. The clinic does seem to be a reputable one. Their prices suit us. They also offer free accommodation and transportation services. As far as I know, not all clinics are ready to provide such service. However, the clinic is too overcrowded. Thi s is the only thing we don’t like about them.
