The medical science has progressed a lot with modern advanced communication media. Now I can give free consultation to couples from distant countries and arrange treatment for them just through the click of an E mail. Even complex procedures like laparoscopy, IVF, ICSI or donor egg IVF can be arranged and completed in just few days visit.
I was all excited when the US couple wanted to have an Indian egg donor. All the necessary consultation was done via e mail and I arranged medicines through GP in USA.
For completing the whole IVF procedure, they had to stay in India for just 5 days.
They thoroughly enjoyed being in Cochin , a favorite tourism destination and the added advantage was that they had the treatment at a very nominal rate. The same treatment is very expensive in USA, but it only cost them a holiday to have their life changing experience. They loved the Athirampilly waterfalls (known as Niagara of Asia) and they have pledged to come back again for the river cruise in Alleppey !
As she was reaching her fifties, we were not sure about the success, especially since her endometrial lining was not in a great condition. We had arranged for an excellent egg donor who was very healthy, educated and young. So the eggs were of good quality, which probably is the reason for the success. Now we are very happy to have received the report of twin pregnancies growing in her womb, apparently the embryo divided and became twins!
