fiv marbella spain


just wanted to pass on a recommendation. i may be posting in the wrong section as i had embryo adoption there, (please feel frre to move it) and i must say the service and the protocols and the hospital/clinic is fabulous.

in my case, the matched my needs perfectly. michelle the liason officer is fabulous. the clinic is attached to the local hospital and the facilities are out of this world. the treatment protocol is something i have never received before in the UK. the clinic and hospital and really clean and the take hygiene very seriously.

when i went in for ET, my mum wasnt allowed to come in with me. UK allow her in the operating room in her outdoor clothes and shoes. i was taken to the ward where i had to put on a hairnet, gown, surgical slippers and then surgical shoes over the slippers. i was then escorted into a wheelchair and wheeled into the theatre. to open the doors they had to touch a special button (with latex gloves on), so as to not physically touch the doors. i was placed on the bed and then a towel put over me and surgical material over both legs covering my feet completely. more surgical material was placed under my bottom and it was like i was being swaddled. the nurse then did an abdominal ultrasound to locate my womb. the ultrasound stayed on my stomach throughout the whole procedure. the dr inserted speculum and washed the inside of my 'you know where' wth sterile fluid. (ddnt feel a thing, they looked quite shocked i ddnt react). speculum was then removed and a fresh one inserted. then the catheter pipe and the dr watched via ultrasound to make sure he had it in my womb. the embryos were then brought in and inserted. all the while the doctor was checking va the ultrasound. the UK (or my clinic could learn a thing or 2!).

after the procedure, i went to sit up but was pushed down. i had to stay lying perfectly still for 10 mins in theatre. then i had to shuffle carefully across to another bed and i was pushed into the ward. asked to shuffle carefully over to hospital bed and had to stay lying down for a further 10 - 20 minutes.

after that, i received a report which stated i had 2 day3,7 cell embryos transferred, so transparent. everything in black and white. after that i was given a treatment protocol, for the next 2 weeks. no strenous exercise or lifting, plenty of rest and to drink isotonic drinks as the minerals and nutrients will help the embryo(s) to implant. no sex for at least 7 days (as a recurrent m/cer, not for at least 12 wks if i am successful) it is brilliant to have some paperwork to refer to, for those 'unsure days' . again the UK (or my UK clinic) could learn a lot.

even if i am not successful in my quest - i would recommend this clinic to anyone. they are so friendly, everything is transparent and the service is 2nd to none. the facilities are modern and very very clean. i had no problem in trusting them 100%

they dont just do embryo adopton, the do donor eggs, own eggs, problems with sperm, literally everything.

they are fantastic !
After a long hard infertility journey, i am now reluctantly done
