A five-year battle with fertility treatments
After five years of fertility treatments, we now look back on a long and difficult process with fertility treatments – which in the end without a doubt was worth every hypodermic needle, crying bout and perpetual physical examination.
Our struggle began right after our wedding in 2007 when we were referred to Dansk Fertilitetsklinik because of their high success rate in treating polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), among other things. Since artificial insemination had proved unsuccessful and we were still entitled to free treatment under the public health system, we spent a good two years on public IVF treatment before we went back to Dansk Fertilitetsklinik.
We never imagined that we would have to endure five long and hard years of disappointments and failures.
Several times, we asked ourselves whether it was really worth it, or whether it was time to give up.
Fortunately, it never got that far, and we made it through the difficult times with the caring and professional help of the skilled and dedicated staff at Dansk Fertilitetsklinik. In order to make it through such a long and arduous process, it is crucial to be treated as individuals and never to feel like just another ID number in a medical file.
From the time you enter the door until you leave, you are met with warmth, understanding and, not least, flexibility.
This allows you to combine the numerous examinations, treatments and emotional ups and downs with your everyday life. All of the staff at the clinic, from receptionists to nurses and laboratory technicians to doctors, bring the same level of commitment and dedication to the project.
This is of invaluable help when things turn out to be more difficult than expected. We recommend all infertile women or couples to turn to Dansk Fertilitetsklinik for help and to have an open and honest discussion of your treatment options as well as a very professional and, hopefully, successful treatment to get those much wanted children.
Best wishes, Christian and Bella – parents of twins Viggo and Viola, born 19 February 2013.
