All Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

Subramaniam and Louisana are nice couple from Kapar town. They were married in 1999. In their quest to complete their family, they tried hard to get pregnant naturally but remained childless after 15 years of marriage. In 2012, Lousiana was already 41 years old and the hubby was a decade more senior than her. Then, they decided to try medical treatment.


Between 2012 and 2013, they had attempted a total of six IUI cycles at several centres but were all futile.

Despite their many failures, they did not yield. Then, they were recommended by friends to come to Metro IVF in August 2013. Upon a detailed investigation and consultation, the fertility specialist , Dr. Tee advised Louisana to go for IVF with ICSI treatment. She agreed to the treatment and scheduled their first IVF cycle in May 2014. She had her eggs pick up on 9th June 2014 and three embryos were transferred back to her wombs two days later. Her pregnancy progressed to 7th week. To her disappointment, this first cycle ended with early miscarriage.

With the support and encouragement from her husband and the IVF counselor, she remained optimistic and regained her confidence soon. She accepted a new challenge and went for the second cycle with Metro IVF six months later. This time, the Fertility Specialist picked up her eggs on 8th December 2014 and successfully transferred two embryos back into her womb two days later. Although the embryos were of Grade 3, the cycle was successful. Her urine test was positive and her Beta-hCG was 139 IU/L twelve days after the transfer. Her pregnancy progressed normally. She delivered a healthy baby boy on 18th August 2015 by Caesarean section. The couple was so happy that after waiting for 15 years, they finally have a baby boy of their own.

All good things come to those who wait.

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 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.
