Stork Fertility Center
In the beginning, we hoped that we could do the treatment on our own, and reduce the cost by not going through an agent, so we chose Taiwan for the treatment. We initially chose to perform treatment in other hospitals in Taiwan. But that hospital was unable to ensure the number of eggs retrieved by the donor. The number of eggs the donor retrieved the first time was not as high as expected, so the donor did two egg retrievals. We were so disappointed about the result. We ended up with two transfers, we spent twice as much time and money, and even though we ended up with three embryos, we still couldn't get pregnant.
We were very disappointed that we planned to end the fertility treatment, but I didn't want to give up and tried to convince my husband. Therefore, we started our treatment in Stork Fertility Center last year (2017). Fortunately, the consultant of Stork was able to communicate in fluent Japanese and answer our trivial questions. We received the doctor's instructions through the consultant, therefore we went to Stork for the first consultation smoothly.
There are very luxurious hotel-like rooms in Stork. We stayed in that room for one night, and an airport shuttle took us directly to the hospital. The doctor is very gentle and cheerful. The doctor answered all of our questions based on medical evidence, so we can continue our treatment with peace of mind.
After the initial consultation, the consultant notified a donor who met our expectations by mail. The donor provided us with 20 frozen eggs, which were fertilized and cultured into 11 embryos.
Based on my physical condition, the doctor prescribed implanted medicine to me. During the implantation cycle, I did not have to fly to Taiwan. I had my endometrial thickness confirmed and blood values drawn at the hospital in Japan, and finally let the stork doctor decide the date of implantation.
After the transfer, I stayed in bed, and although the doctor said I did not need to stay in bed. I know I'm a little overwrought, but I think it's better to be cautious. After returning to Japan, the counselor also emailed several times to confirm that I had taken the right medication. When I checked at the Japanese hospital and confirmed that I was pregnant, I was convinced that the multiple inspections that done by stork were really necessary.
