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..
