    ..News Anchor Hsu Yun Xiang (Ariane Hsu) froze her embryos five years ago with Dr. Tzeng's help. The plan of having a second child has been put off because she had a hectic life with her schooling, career, and family.. News Anchor Ariane said: “I eventually finished my thesis last year, and I felt it was time to bring the child home. I felt no concern even though I was going to need injections and medication because I told myself these are guardian shots, and these shots are able to keep my baby safe in the womb. During the treatment, once again, Dr. Tzeng exceeded our expectations. We are so fortunate that transferring of the single embryo resulted in success after just one attempt. Our baby "moved in" with ease. 🤩 I chose TFC Taipei Fertility Center due to Dr. Tzeng, who is called the father of IVF in Taiwan because he created the very first IVF baby in Taiwan. Moreover, TFC provides round-the-clock support with empathetic and experienced medical professionals. I was well taken care of during the whole treatment.” With Ariane's effort and perseverance, she is expecting her second child in 2024. "Believe in yourself! You might catch the sweet cadence of joyous heartbeats.🧡" 📍Opening Hours:www.tfcivf.com/en/outpatient 📍Phone number: +886-2-2725-2333 📍WeChat:tfc_ivf 📍WhatsApp:https://wa.me/886928651058 📍TFC App: iOS Download:https://pse.is/3pj328 Android Download:https://pse.is/3ppxzz#

    Taipei Fertility Center / Case Sharing from Taiwan I’m a patient who had one of my ovaries removed. I was diagnosed with the cancer when I was in college. After finishing my whole cancer treatment, my husband and I had started our family-forming plan for 2 years, and got nothing sadly. Then I met Dr.Hu when I was 38. At that time, my AMH value was only 0.3ng/ml because of my age and the lesion caused by chemotherapy before. During the IVF treatment, I was suggested with 2 options – collecting my eggs by several retrieval surgeries or egg donation. Although I was so anxious, I decided to go for 4 times of egg retrievals without hesitation, and luckily I got 9 eggs collected! Finally, 3 embryos were implanted into my uterus, and I was pregnant successfully with the singleton. Few months after, I came back to see Dr.Hu with my precious 8-month-old baby. I told my baby that this is the second time he met Dr.Hu. The first time happened in the time-lapse incubator when he is still an embryo. What a strong vitality! It’s such an amazing miracle we won’t ever forget.

  • [Egg Recipient Program] New Hope of Oversea IVF, Successful Pregnancy with Young eggs and PGS
    Repeated Failed in IVF, Egg Bank Help Me Get A Baby

    Repeated Failed in IVF, Egg Bank Help Me Get A Baby

    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.

  • Worried About Not Seeing Donor Photo in Taiwan
    Worried About Not Seeing Donor Photo in Taiwan

    Worried About Not Seeing Donor Photo in Taiwan

    I got married very late and found my Mr Right at 39. I started infertility treatment after I got married. However, what is sad was that after 30 egg retrievals and 14 implantations, I still couldn't get pregnant. Just when I felt frustrated that maybe I could only live a childless life with my husband for the rest of my life, I happened to learn that a friend who was more than ten years older than me already had a baby. That friend also did IVF for a long time, and has never been pregnant. I didn't know whether she ended up having a child through adoption or an egg recipient, I still felt envious and happy when I heard the news. At the same time, I read a blog post on the Internet about a netizen who accepted an egg recipient from Taiwan. The netizen was about 50 years old and was undergoing treatment in Taiwan. For me, who doesn't speak English and hates flying, perhaps going to Taiwan would be a more practical way. We have considered the European and USA countries for treatment, but we feel that the intermediary companies are unreliable and suspicious. In contrast, infertility centers in Taiwan do not need to be introduced by an intermediary, and we can communicate directly with hospitals. Additionally, the cost is relatively cheaper. There is even the government that manages donations and recipients, which makes me feel very relieved. At that time, I learned on the Internet about two famous reproductive centers that serve Japanese. I participated in the seminar held by these two, and I contacted them directly. Finally, we choose Stork Fertility Center, and there are several reasons: One is because the Stork has an egg bank,which already reserves the donor's eggs. I don’t need to worry about the donor’s situation being unsatisfactory. Furthermore, the doctor gave me the impression of being steady and honest.In addition, my counselor, her meticulous care was also the reason why I chose.She always considered my nervous personality. She was afraid that I would take the wrong medicine. She would give me reminders and suggestions via phone or email every time. Thank her very much. The most worth mentioning is the EGG BANK.At that time, my husband and I had talked about: "This should be a shortcut to pregnancy!" If so, we took the name of the born child a year after attending the seminar. The egg bank is really very efficient! There are a lot of items that must be checked when first visiting. Although it is very troublesome, it makes me feel safer before undergoing the implantation operation. We can’t look at the photo of a donor before accepting the egg recipient program in Taiwan. So many people said it would be anxiety. Yes, it causes anxiety. But I think it would be okay. Among the conditions of hope I mentioned, the donor has the same blood type as mine, and her height and weight are similar to mine. The consultant also said that the donor feels very similar to me. After the baby was born, it was cuter than I thought. My parents-in-law have five grandchildren. They also said that my child is the cutest one! Once I became unconfident because I couldn't have children, and I also repelled deep friendships with others. Since the birth of my child, in order to show others how cute my child is, I have become very active to go out to socialize and become a self-confident woman. People who are currently undergoing infertility treatment in Japan may not consider any treatment other than self-egg. But if you are unable to accept a life without children anyway, you may consider the option of "egg recipient program". I have no blood relationship with this child, but maybe it was me that had been pregnant for 10 months, the child is closer to me than the father who is related by blood! #Egg Donation#Overseas IVF *This article only reflects the treatment status at the time of writing, and the actual situation should be discussed with the doctor.

  • How Could I be A Mom After Menopause in 20
    How Could I be A Mom After Menopause in 20

    How Could I be A Mom After Menopause in 20

    About three years ago, my husband and I heard the term “ Egg Recipient” for the first time. Before we took the egg recipient for IVF, we had experienced a lot of painful things, and we shed a lot of tears. We even thought about adopting a child. We thought if the child doesn’t have my genes, then is it best not to have a blood relationship with both of us? My husband and I had discussed it for a long time, and finally decided to take the egg recipient program. The reason for taking this move was that I wanted to give birth to a child of my husband and raise him as an adult. In terms of biology, my child and I are not related by gene. However, after all, it is me that gave birth after ten months of pregnancy! I really want to experience the process of pregnancy and having a baby. What would it be like? Since learning about the "egg recipient program", we have checked a lot of information. Japanese law doesn’t approve of this project, so if you want to take this in Japan, it will take a lot of time and money just to evaluate and check qualifications at the early stage. Because the evaluation is too strict, even after passing the assessment, it may take several years and I may grow into an advanced maternal age unknowingly. As soon as I heard that there is a possibility of pregnancy termination at an advanced pregnancy age, I became anxious. Accepting an egg donation doesn’t necessarily lead to pregnancy. Even if you get pregnant successfully, you may not be able to continue your pregnancy, and you may not even be able to give birth to your baby safely. These risks aren’t just because of egg recipients, but because IVF has its own risks. However, even with so many risks, we still want to give it a try. At that time, I strongly believed that if I didn't do it, I would definitely regret it. We went to two hospitals’ seminars of egg recipients in Japan, one of which was the Stork Fertility Center. We were redeemed by what the doctor said. In fact, my husband was still hesitant, so I took him to the seminar in order to persuade him. What the doctor said on the stage deeply touched my husband's heart. He started to face and think positively, and finally we gave birth to the baby safely. For us, this is a very meaningful thing. We are very happy! Although I still have the idea of ​​"This child does not have my genes", but more importantly, this child grew up in my belly. It was a lovely child who was born after my ten-month pregnancy with abdominal pain. This has not changed and beyond doubt. In the future, I will truthfully tell my kid about the egg recipient. We decided to reveal it to the child slowly when he/she is not sensible, and when he learns more and more, we will explain it to him very carefully. I would like to thank the donor who dedicated precious eggs to us in this article. Thank you, thanks to your loving donation, we can have a son/daughter. I will tell the kid about you. I will tell him/her: "This girl doesn't even know the names of mom and dad, but she is willing to help us." Thank you so much. We are very happy. Thank you for what you gave us. I know that there will be a lot of trials from now on, but the three of us will go through it hand in hand. Next, I want to tell the couple who are still hesitating whether to take the egg recipient program. The project does have two side opinions. My parents-in-law were opposed at first, but now they are very happy to see their grandson/granddaughter and look forward to the child's growth. No matter how, this child is our treasure. There are few people like me who have menopause in their 20s. I used to suffer terribly because I couldn't have my own children, but now I am very happy. Thanks to the support of the Stork Fertility Center, I can have such happiness. Thank you all. After the child grows up, I want to take him/her on a trip to Taiwan, so that you all can see how he grows up. #Egg Donor Recipient Program#Egg Donation *This article only reflects the treatment status at the time of writing, and the actual situation should be discussed with the doctor.
