Repeated Failed in IVF, Egg Bank Help Me Get A Baby

We spent four years trying to get pregnant and changed four powerful hospitals in Japan, but there was no good news for a long time. I made up my mind to come to Taiwan for the egg recipient program, but I still failed twice. We were so disappointed that we came across the Stork Fertility Center at this time.

Just a few days ago, I gave birth to my long-awaited child, and I felt very happy. I have been undergoing infertility treatment for 4 years since I was 40. We spent four years trying to get pregnant and changed four powerful hospitals in Japan, but there was no good news for a long time. Considering our age, my husband and I started searching for the egg recipient program.

In the beginning, we hoped that we could do the treatment on our own, and reduce the cost by not going through an agent, so we chose Taiwan for the treatment. We initially chose to perform treatment in other hospitals in Taiwan. But that hospital was unable to ensure the number of eggs retrieved by the donor. The number of eggs the donor retrieved the first time was not as high as expected, so the donor did two egg retrievals. We were so disappointed about the result. We ended up with two transfers, we spent twice as much time and money, and even though we ended up with three embryos, we still couldn't get pregnant.

We were very disappointed that we planned to end the fertility treatment, but I didn't want to give up and tried to convince my husband. Therefore, we started our treatment in Stork Fertility Center last year (2017). Fortunately, the consultant of Stork was able to communicate in fluent Japanese and answer our trivial questions. We received the doctor's instructions through the consultant, therefore we went to Stork for the first consultation smoothly.

There are very luxurious hotel-like rooms in Stork. We stayed in that room for one night, and an airport shuttle took us directly to the hospital. The doctor is very gentle and cheerful. The doctor answered all of our questions based on medical evidence, so we can continue our treatment with peace of mind.

After the initial consultation, the consultant notified a donor who met our expectations by mail. The donor provided us with 20 frozen eggs, which were fertilized and cultured into 11 embryos.

Based on my physical condition, the doctor prescribed implanted medicine to me. During the implantation cycle, I did not have to fly to Taiwan. I had my endometrial thickness confirmed and blood values drawn at the hospital in Japan, and finally let the stork doctor decide the date of implantation.

After the transfer,  I stayed in bed, and although the doctor said I did not need to stay in bed. I know I'm a little overwrought, but I think it's better to be cautious. After returning to Japan, the counselor also emailed several times to confirm that I had taken the right medication. When I checked at the Japanese hospital and confirmed that I was pregnant, I was convinced that the multiple inspections that done by stork were really necessary.

It has been a year since the initial consultation, and I have given birth smoothly. Thanks to the Stork fertility center that gave us hope when we were about to give up, we can still live a family life with children. Thank you very much.

先日待望の子どもを出産し、心から幸せをかみしめています。私は40歳からの4年の不妊治療で日本の有名実力病院と言われる4病院で治療を経験しました。結果が出なかった事や自分の年齢を考え、卵子提供での不妊治療のアプローチを開始しました。自分達夫婦が主体となって治療を進める事が出来て、仲介業者を通さず費用も抑えることを考えて台湾での卵子提供を目指しました。実は、初めての卵子提供での治療は台湾の別の病院を選択しました。その病院では、ドナーさんからの採卵数が確保出来ず、2回の採卵を依頼する事となりました。1つしかできなかった胚盤胞の数にただ茫然としたことを思いだしました。私は同じドナーさんにお願いして2回目の採卵をしてもらいましたが2回目も同じ感じでした。結果、できた胚盤胞を2回に分けて移植しましたが全くダメでした。2倍の時間と費用をかけて移植可能な胚盤胞をなんとか3個確保し移植しましたが妊娠できませんでした。これで不妊治療を終了しようとする夫をなんとか説得して昨年、コウノトリ生殖医療センターでの治療を開始しました。

コウノトリのスタッフに流暢な日本語のメールで私達の細い質問に応えてもらい、適切な指示をもらったことで順調に初診を迎えました。コウノトリの初診は、ゴージャスな病院内のホテル1泊と空港から病院までの送迎がセットとなっていて、安心の初診となりました。お医者さんは優しく爽やかで、私たちの細かい質問に医学的な根拠を踏まえてしっかりと答えてくれた為、安心してその後の治療にすすめました。初診を終え、メールで私たちの希望に合ったドナーを紹介してもらえました。20個の凍結卵子保有のドナーさんの卵子は、受精後11個も胚盤胞になってくれました。コウノトリでは私の身体状況に合わせて移殖前に必要な薬の調整を指示してもらいました。また、日本のバックアップ病院の検査結果を踏まえて移植可能な日が指示されました。移植後の安静度はやり過ぎかも・・と思うぐらい慎重で、帰国後のクスリの服薬に関しても担当者から何度もメールで確認してもらったため飲み忘れなどなく過ごせました。バックアップ病院で妊娠確定の検査結果を聞いた時には治療の厳密さには理由があるんだと確信しました。

コウノトリ生殖医療センターでの初診から1年ちょっと経ち、私は、出産ました。お陰様で諦めかけていた家族の形で生活が出来ていると思うと感謝しきれないほどです。本当に有難うございました。
