For the first time in my life I saw these two lines
It was 6 years ago when we first thought about having a baby. We believed it would take just a few months to see two desirable lines on the pregnancy test. Each month there would be photos of a growing bump, framed ultrasound pictures, then birth of our little one, us becoming young parents ... and our endless and cloudless happily-ever-after. A year later, we were going through a number of test, hormone therapies and a search for correct diagnosis...

The impossible has become possible
Thanks to the professionalism of the doctors at the Clinic - especially Svitlana Turbanist, - the impossible has become possible for me! The most important thing is to believe in yourself and trust your doctor who, apart from being a Medical Professional in the first place, eventually becomes your Friend! - says our patient T. It so happened that in September 2014, I lost my only son. And for me, children always were the meaning of life...
The advent of vitrification technology (rapid freezing) allowed not only to freeze eggs but fertilize them well after thawing. According to recent reports, the effectiveness of vitrified oocytes fertilization is comparable to fresh. This has given a new chance for women suffering from cancer to preserve their fertility before treatment started, as well as for women who are not planning a pregnancy at present, to have a genetic own child in the future.

Preimplantation Genetic Screening (PGS)
One of the most common causes of embryo implantation failure, miscarriages in early pregnancy and the birth of children with genetic abnormalities are chromosomal aberrations. Formation of the wrong number of chromosomes is called aneuploidy. Timely detection of aneuploidies allows prospective parents to get a long-awaited pregnancy and avoid possible problems with the health of the child in the future. For this purpose, many IVF centers perform preimplantation genetic screening (PGS).
