Ms Sharon  from Califonia, USA is married for 10 years and had been trying to have a baby without result. She is 36. She was visiting Malaysia when she heard of Malaysia Health Tourism and took the opportunity to have her fertility treatment in Malaysia. After much searching through the web and through contacts, she decided to have her consultation at Metroivf and her first visit was on 13-3-2017. She was found to have ovarian factor infertility from local investigations and from her past medical report which fortunately she brought along. She and her husband were so confident of MetroIvf and request to have their treatment started that same day. She was on her ninth day of her cycle and because of her irregular cycle; the attending fertility specialist Dr Tee Swi Peng decided that she can start her treatment that day. She had her egg pickup on 23-3-2017 and managed to produce 4 good embryos. However, due abnormal progesterone level, fresh embryo transfer was cancelled and the embryos were frozen. Her husband had to leave to America due to some urgent matter.

Sharon stayed on to continue her FET treatment and on 17-4-2017, two frozen embryos were transferred. Three weeks later a small pregnancy sac was seen within the uterus.  Bravo! Sharon is pregnant! Her husband was so delighted to hear the best news that they have been waiting for and he came back to Malaysia and fetched her home to America. In January 2018, she delivered a healthy baby girl, a joy to the family in the cold winter.

Too Late For A Miracle???

Mr and Mrs LML are a lovely couple from Singapore. They got married at 40 years old and have been trying for a child since. They had 3 failed IVF cycles and their fertility specialist in Singapore did not recommend her to try again with her own eggs as her FSH level was already very high. Her AMH levels (ovarian reserve indicator) were low which confirmed that she was nearing menopause.

Mrs LML went to numerous centres for a second opinion but decided to finally settle for Metro IVF as she had read and heard many good reviews. She finally decided to have an IVF with Egg Donor cycle with Metro IVF as she was very comfortable with the doctor and staff here.

Mrs LML commenced her cycle in March 2016. Her donor produced 16 mature oocytes which was then matched with her husband’s sperm via ICSI. 2 Grade 2 and 1 Grade 3 embryos were transferred on ET day and 3 embryos were frozen for future use.

In early April 2016, Mrs LML informed us that her BHCG was 116.4IU/L. When she repeated BHCG after another 4 days, it increased to 402IU/L. We advised her to go for a scan to detect the gestational sac and heartbeat. Unfortunately fetal heartbeat was continuously not detected till 8 weeks and D+C was scheduled.

Mrs LML was advised to rest for a few months before attempting FET with her remaining embryos.

In September 2016, Mrs LML started her FET cycle. FET was done with 2 Grade 2 and 1 Grade 3 embryos.

2 weeks later, she informed that she was pregnant again. Her BHCG was 238.8IU/L and progressed to 1355.2IU/L 4 days later.

Their family life is finally complete when she delivered her baby boy  in June 2017.

A Pair Of Libyan Angels: Two Is Better Than One!

Madam Fama and her husband are from Libya and were married in 2010. They are expatriates currently residing in Pahang and came to us in 2013 seeking treatment for infertility following recommendations from their friends. Madam Fama attempted to try for pregnancy a few times with Clomid as she was wary of doing too many injections during IVF. Her previous experience of doing IUIs in Pakistan also made her wary as she was uncomfortable being probed and scanned as she was a bit shy in nature.

Two years later, after numerous unsuccessful tries with Clomid, we finally managed to persuade her to reconsider IVF. Her IVF cycle commenced in August 2015. 10 oocytes were harvested and ET with 3 embryos was done 3 days later.

Her luteal support appointment was uneventful when she was suddenly admitted to ward as she was displaying symptoms of OHSS. Blood was taken to confirm OHSS and to check for her BHCG level. Her BHCG was 373IU/L which indicated that she was pregnant and it was probable that her pregnancy might have aggravated her mild OHSS symptoms.

Initially, one gestational sac was detected but as her pregnancy went along, we detected two sacs with heartbeats. Her pregnancy progressed well and further scans showed that she was carrying twin girls!

She has recently delivered and the couple is happily enjoying the presence of their little girls..

A Tough Road To Pregnancy

Mrs Yi and her husband are from China. Her husband works for an international company and his work led them to relocate to Malaysia. They have been actively trying to get pregnant since they got married way back in 2010. Unfortunately, the long wait has never yielded any positive result. They finally decided to go for fertility testing in Metro IVF when Mrs Yi came numerous across encouraging reviews online. Semen analysis indicated that Mr Yi has azoospermia and further testing revealed that he was also not able to produce any sperm. Mr and Mrs Yi was devastated at first but her ever supportive husband was open to the idea of having a sperm donor and encouraged Mrs Yi to try.

Mrs Yi underwent IUI in April 2014 and June 2014 but pregnancy eluded them.

They finally opted for IVF in August 2014. On OPU day, 11 oocytes were harvested but only 3 were good for transfer on ET day. Sadly, these embryos failed to implant.

Though both of them felt very disappointed and very disheartened, they still wanted to try again for a child. They were advised to rest for a few months and they finally came back in April 2015 to try IVF again. This time around 17 oocytes were harvested, 3 embryos were transferred and another 3 embryo were able to be frozen for future use.

2 weeks later (May 2015), when the UPT strip showed a double line and her pregnancy was confirmed with a BHCG of 953IU, Mr and Mrs Yi was overwhelmed with emotion. They were so happy and the joy was doubled when they saw 2 gestational sacs with heartbeat (and 1 smaller empty sac) a few weeks later. Mrs Yi made preparations to go back to China as her visa was due and she wanted to be with her family who could take care of her.

Events took a drastic turn in September 2015 when Mr Yi made a call to inform us that Mrs Yi had miscarried her twins at 25+weeks due to cervical imcompetence. He indicated his wife’s desire to come back for an FET cycle with their remaining embryos. Mrs Yi was advised to rest for at least 6months to recuperate.

Nearly a year later, in August 2016 Mrs Yi came back to us to start her FET cycle. Her steely determination and bravery left us in awe. 3 embryos were transferred in September 2016 and when she emailed from China indicating that she was pregnant again, all of us were overjoyed. She is currently a stay at home mom to her precious baby girl!! Her steely determination has finally been rewarded.
