Interview with Director of Praga Medica (GEST IVF)

Successful IVF – Own eggs
My husband and I complete one round of IVF with Praga Medica, which I am pleased to say was successful. We are now very proud parents of a 9 day old gorgeous baby boy.

After 2 years of trying to conceive our second child we decided to seek the help of Praga Medica to see if we were suitable candidates for IVF. We attended numerous of appointments in the UK and doctors were unable to explain why I was unable to conceive. My daughter was conceived naturally and following her birth I never regained a normal cycle. (No ovulation). I felt that I was forever being fobbed off as told that if I conceived naturally once I would be able to again and to carrying on trying for another year.

From the first contact with Praga Medica (via Skype) I felt like an individual and treated according to my own personal problems. All of our questions were answered and I instantly trusted what I was being told. Communication after first initial contact was via e-mail and all responses were received within a day.

My husband and I travelled to Prague on two separated occasions to complete treatment. Once for 2 nights where we completed the initial checks and planned treatment. Then again a few months later for 10 nights where we completed egg retrieval/transfer. (Own eggs)

The professionalism and support from Praga Medica were second to none. We always saw the same people at the clinic and had face to face appointments with the doctors/consultants who completed the procedure. I always felt 100% at ease and informed of what was going on.

I would recommend Praga Medica to anyone looking to have IVF. The stress and worry of the procedure was reduced by the care and support of all staff and we can never thank them enough.

Prague is a fantastic city which has an amazing public transport network. It’s clean, safe and filled with history. We travelled to Prague during treatment with our then 3 year old daughter and there was plenty of activities and parks to keep her entertained. The whole experience felt like a holiday rather than a medical trip. I cannot wait to return!

Thank you Praga Medica you have completed our family.
