Hallo,

I am just browsing internet and looking for some opinions about fertility clinics.

Has anybody any experience with Golden Gate Fertility Planning Centre from Puchong?

http://www.goldengatefertility.com

I only found one opinion on another forum that they are expensive.

Would be grateful for any opinions.

Thanks,

Actually I started the topic but nobody replied :(

Anyway I would like to share my experience about this clinic, Golden Gate Fertility PLanning Centre.

First initial consultation is free. Means you can talk to dr Khoo about his methods, how the treatment is done ect.... Next (second visit or the same day if the couple deceided to preceed with the treatment) the following tests are done: blood test and urine test (both woman and man), ultrasound (woman), general health consultation. Woman is also asked to check temperature every morning. They can sell you a body basal termometer if you dont have one and give you a small notebook to register the temperature. You must visit the clinic every week. Next week my husband will be asked to do semen test. At the end we got medicines to be taked 6 days/week. Small black pills and "normal size" pills.

We were quite happy with the first visit that we even deceided to postpone IVF for the time being.

The costs of the first visit is: blood+urine test woman - 420RM, blood +urine test man: 400; ultrasound 50RM (you pay only for 7 UGS, next ones are free), termometer 60RM, medicines 130RM for each/week. This time we paid together 1190RM. Next weeks we will pay 310/week which is 260RM for medicines plus 50 for ultrasound.

This clinic has a lot of patients, many couples in the waiting area.

Does anybody have any experience with Sunfert?

Cheers,

Hallo everybody!

I started this topic at the end of April and now I want to post an update about Golden Gate Fertility Planning Centre in Puchong. After 6 months of taking Chineese herbs I have just found out I AM PREGNANT! Actually I got pregnant in the 5th cycle and I am absolutely sure this happened due to the treatment offered by Dr Khoo and Dr Lai.

OUR STORY

We were trying to get pregnant for 1 year before we met Dr Lai & Dr Khoo. It seems not very long, however I am in an advanced age as for pregnancy and my husband had very bad semen results. After only 5-6 months of trying to get pregnant we deceided to go for a routine checking, as it is recommened for women over 35 not to wait 1 year as for younger women. After the consultation in Concept Fertility Centre we were advised to go for ICSI as soon as possible due my age and his very bad results. It took place exactly 1 year ago, also end of October. This was an advise that probably all "western medicine" doctors would have given us so I dont blame anybody. Even though I really didnt like the idea of doing IVF I really thought we had no other solution. In those days I was reading a lot in the internet and of course I knew that chineese medicine could be very usefull in infertility treatment, but I didnt realise it can be so effective during so short period of time. I thought we were a difficult case and only IVF could give us chance to get pregnant. So we started palnning IVF for June 2011. Before I was looking for an accupuncture treatment as I read it can help to increase IVF chance. This is why I contacted dr Khoo. On our 1st free consultation he convinced us to try his herbs and we deceided to postpone IVF. In the result of this 5 days ago I saw 2 lines on the pregnancy test. First time in my life! I am so greatfull we deceided to try this treatment. We were so close to IVF and we managed to avoid. Of course my pregnancy is at the very early stage, but no doubt it happened!

TREATMENT

As I mentioned in a previous post, you have to go to the clinic every week to have a scan USG and to buy medicines. In the first part of the cycle they monitor how the egg is growing and predict when ovulation happens. In the second part of the cycle they confirm ovulation happened and check the uterus lining. I know my lining improved much during the treatment. Women are also requested to check their body basal temperature every day as the chart is a very good source of information about our body.

About the costs. First visit is quite expensive, because blood and urine tests are done both for woman and man. This costs 820RM. Medicine costs 300RM/week/couple for the 4 cycles. If not conceived within 4 cycles you get additional medicine and than the cost is 460/week/couple. Dr Khoo says usually people conceive on 5th or 6th month, but if you are lucky it can even happen earlier. His success rate is very high.

I really recommend Dr Khoo and Dr Lai to everybody who is trying to have a baby especially for people planning go for IVF or even IUI. Give yourself a chance before trying all this invasive methods. You can gain a lot. Just try and be patient for a while, dont give up too soon. Before we started the treatment me and my husband promised ourselves we would not give up before 8 months.

This is my story and it is real. I wanted to share it because 6 months ago I was also looking for information and couldnt find much. I am not Malaysian and in my country writing opinions on forums is very common. Dr Khoo has many patients but almost nobody is sharing in internet.

Thank you dr Khoo and thank you dr Lai.

Yes sg dr with their fees are so so so so expensive, its like 2-3 times higher in malaysia, but when i check thru their test, everything are the same! i'm in your condition for the 1st time too, after that, everything done in Malaysia ! easy, fast and affordable ! lastly, its always better to be at home country for medical checkups !

Hi everyone,

I just want to share my own experience. I was married for four years without any luck conceiving. One fine day, I was talking to my sister and she told me about a doctor who helped her friend to get pregnant. I was happy that there is someone who might be able to help me out. The next thing I know, I was seeing the doctor. He was great and straight forward. He did all the necessary tests and I underwent few IUI procedures without much luck. Finally he suggested That I try out IVF. I was so lucky that I got pregnant with my first try. Now my baby is 4 years old and I am pregnant with my second child (also an IVF baby) from the same set of embryos as my first child.

I am sure everyone must be wandering who's the doctor behind all these. WELL, he is Dr. Prashant Nadkarni from KL Fertility & Gynaecology Centre, Malaysia. He is a great guy. For those who are still trying to conceive, just check out this centre. Currently, there is another doctor at this centre (besides Dr. Prashant) and I heard she is great as well.

Good luck.

i think KL Fertility / Dato Prashant's clinic is a good clinic. Although the clinic is small but more personal and zero error. The staff there is friendly and helpful. They are 24 hour oncall, They have high pregnancy rate also. i infertility for 3 years, attempt ivf x 3 in tmc and sunfert. i finally have my girl in 2011 via ivf with Dato Prashant.

Try and google their websites. www.klfertility.com or call 0127236280 for more information.

I love their nurse, they are really helpful.

Hi mybbdream

I can understand your problem. My sister had the same problem. She went through 3 times IVF treatments, she was pregnant too but failed to carry them. However, she did not gave up and stick to the same doctor and got pregnant the 4th time. She is having 2 kids now. She went to Dr Tan Jui Seng from IVF Bridge Fertility Centre in Johor Bahru. I am seeing Dr Tan too for my regular check up too. He is friendly and very experienced in fertility treatment. I saw his clinic has many twins and triplet photos from IVF treatments. If you are living in JB, why not go and see Dr Tan ? Tel: 07-3362788 or 07-2762925, website: www.ivfbridge.com.my. All the best to you !

hi ladies,



I'm fairly new at this as well. I m happily married with a very
supportive husband. we have been trying now > 2yrs. Doesn't seem to
be happening for us. I am diagnosed with PCOS (too many) and have even
done Laparatomy for a ruptured cyst before. I am healed from my Op and
now am looking at IVF . I have read most of the forums and have also
done my share of homework. I am here to ask if anyone has taken
treatment and proceeded with IVF by DR Surinder Singh from Tropicana
medical centre (TMC) . Would know how much it costs in TMC ? I was told
that he isn't as expensive as others . My second question would be
regarding KL Fertility Clinic Dr Prashanth: how much does he cost and
heard/rate his success rate is high .



Thanking all the ladies in advance for any reply that could help me .

I just wanted to let everyone know about my experience with JSH fertility Centre at Johor Specialist Hospital, Johor Bahru. They are the only hospital based IVF centre (KPJ group) in Johor. My husband had some issues with his sperm and he had help with the experienced Urulogist at the Hospital.

Dr Mohanraj, the IVF doctor there at JSH is very caring and experienced. Before our treatment with IVF, he explained all the other possible options available for us. He did not push us to do IVF, but rather explained the pros and cons to us and let us make up our mind. With his help, we have finally succeeded in achieving our dream of having a family with our first attempt of IVF!!

Another person that was very helpful was their chief embryologist, Ms Angela Ho, who has more then 20 years of working in IVF. I would consider her knowledge and caring personality a big plus and maybe one reason why JSH Fertilty Centre has a very good success rates. I would strongly like to recommend JSH Fertility Centre for anyone seeking IVF treatment.
