Pre-New Year miracle in ISIDA clinic: pregnancy against the diagnosis
While anticipating the New Year holidays, we believe in miracles as never before and hope for all our dreams to come true. At this time, we all need happy, inspiring stories that will give us hope for the best. Story like this is about Daria R. and her husband, who received their biggest New Year gift thanks to ISIDA clinic - an opportunity to become parents.
In 2016, the ISIDA clinic initiated a social project: any married couple experiencing difficulties in conceiving a child could fill in a form on the website and get a chance for free infertility treatment program. The medical council was making decision on who will get this chance.
One of the owners of the "happy ticket" Dasha R., upon receiving the news that the doctors of ISIDA clinic are ready to help her and her husband become parents, simply could not believe her happiness. Indeed, before the visit to ISIDA clinic, her husband was diagnosed with "azoospermia", that is a complete absence of sperm in ejaculate. This meant that they could become parents only by using donor sperm.
"If this couple did not find out about our social project and would not take part in it, they most likely would have had IVF with donor sperm, - says obstetrician-gynecologist Ksenia Khazhilenko. - After the decision was made in ISIDA clinic in favor of this couple, Dasha and her husband underwent additional tests that showed that the man had a different diagnosis - retrograde ejaculation. This is a condition when spermatozoa effuse in the urinary tract during ejaculation. The case is difficult, but not hopeless, unlike the initial diagnosis. Our conclusion was so: if there are spermatozoa, then there is a chance of their use for fertilization of the egg. Upon that, we proceed to preparing this couple for IVF. That is, embryologists have engaged in obtaining suitable for fertilization spermatozoa from urine, and Dasha began to prepare for IVF".
"We were dreaming of a child for five years, but, frankly speaking, by that time we already lost hope due to a desperate diagnosis of infertility upon the male factor, - recalls Daria R. - Therefore, I will never get tired of blessing the minute I first heard about the ISIDA clinic, visited the website and filled in an application for participation. I can not but share my opinion on the doctors of this clinic: all of them have a God-given talent. My special gratitude is to Xenia Georgievna Khazhilenko - I have never felt such a sensitive, considerate, compassionate attitude to myself anywhere in any clinic. And the embryologists of the clinic made a real miracle - they not only "got" healthy spermatozoa, but also "forced" them to fertilize the egg. Now I'm happy and I believe that my feeling of happiness will grow along with my belly and at some point will surely become absolute".
"When we took a look at the results of the examinations Dasha and her husband had upon coming to ISIDA, the chances for their successful pregnancy were estimated as extremely low. If it were not for more in-depth examinations, appointed in our clinic, their dream of children would remain a dream, - the doctor Ksenia Khazhilenko continues her story. - However, after the described stages their chance increased and by the time of embryo transferring reached 40%. The couple didn’t miss this chance, and every member of the ISIDA clinic is very happy for them".
Dasha R. and her husband underwent a program in the ISIDA clinic for infertility treatment. And before the New Year holidays, a real miracle happened, the one this couple dreamed of - it was in December last year when Daria found out she was pregnant. Baby was born safely in August 2017.
This happy story is the most vivid confirmation of the fact that during this joyous and kind holiday time any of your dreams may come true. Leave a little space in your heart to believe in magic and it will certainly happen!
