Hi all,

I'm entering 30 weeks now. Getting excited and looking forward. Some says time flies but for me I have been enjoying everyday of my pregnancy although suffered from morning sickness on my 1st trimester and lack of quality sleep lately due to frequent toilet visits at night.

How many of u deliver through natural birth here? My dr says a lot of ivf pregnancies prefers c sec as they do not wish to take on additional risk.

Hi ladies,

Thank u for all the good sharing.

I have been ttc for 5 years. My hubby and I have finally decided to do ivf at Metro. Has anyone had experience with Dr Mohan at Setiawalik Puchong? Can u share? I was told he is the latest fertility specialist of Metro Ivf.

Hi rass81,

Have u started your ivf?

I did my ivf at Metro and m now pregnant, 4 months with twins. I did all my check up at Setiawalk. I met Dr Mohan once and he is a warm and caring specialist. But most of my consultation and treatments were under Dr Tee.

I like setiawalk because its so convenient and parking is easy. Also, all my anetenatal check, ultrasound and amnio test can be done there.

Wish u luck.

Just want share it to all mummies.... i also did the IVF and get twins baby last year.


I'm the Founder of Mama Placenta Encapsulation Services. Mama Placenta is a humble home based placenta encapsulation service that helps new mothers to turn their baby's precious placenta into palatable capsule form to achieve a natural postpartum recovery. Mama Placenta is located in Selangor /Perak, Malaysia.


The purpose of the mother ingesting encapsulated placenta is to reintroduce the beneficial vitamins, minerals, hormones, proteins, and other nutrients to her body following labor and birth which may help restore a more balanced body function, assist in the prevention of “baby blues” and the more serious postpartum depression, increase breast-milk production and quality, shorten healing time, increase maternal energy levels, and provide an over-all feeling of wellness. We use only the highest quality vegetarian capsules made from 100% vegetable derived source HPMC (Hidroxy, Propyl, Methyl, Cellulose), free of starch, sugar, corn, syrup, wheat, dairy, and other potential irritants or preservatives. The v-caps I use for the encapsulation process are Kosher & Halal certified.

Just to share our unpleasant experience when my wife and I were planning to do IVF in Alpha International Fertility Center at Kota Damansara. On that time we were handled by Dr. Leong Way Yew. Since our first appointment with him, I have asked him to process with the natural cycle or low dose IVF program but he keep saying that except we undergo full dose IVF the will be no assurance of the success rate therefor he declined to do those alternatives. As I was worry about the side effect of the full dose IVF drugs then I canceled the program.

Few months later, my cousin who also planned to do IVF went to Alpha Fertility Center and was handled by Dr. Leong. On the initial tested, she was told by the doctor that she has a sufficient of quality eggs that can be used for the program. Then she proceed with all the program processes but until 2nd she still failed and dr. leong just easily said because her age was too old to produce good quality eggs.

That's what I can share about the service provided by this Dr. Leong at Alpha International Fertility Center, Damansara, Malaysia.

Hi Andy,

I think the low dose Ivf u mentioned is similar to Mini Ivf or Micro Ivf. It use less drug for eggs stimulation. Less eggs will be stimulated and grow. Only those with a lot of eggs are suitable for this treatment. :rolleyes:

Hi bktinggi,

Wow! So nice u have boy & girl twin. Happy for u. Your first pregnancy?

12 days after my ET, my bhcg was 120. then 511...2640. At 4 weeks, my pregnancy sac seen during scan. Then my baby heart was seen at 5 week. I was so relieved to see baby's heart blinking. Now is 7 weeks after ET but doc said my baby is 9 weeks. Doc said something like need to add 2 weeks to ET day. So i m now 9 weeks pregnant but only 7 weeks after ET. :rolleyes:

I m still worried and Hope my pregnancy will b smooth to 12 weeks. Before this, I had 3 miscarriage and they all happened before 10 weeks. Baby dont grow well, bleeding or no baby heart. All my past pregnancies were easy to get but difficult to keep. Then I waited for 4 yr, trying and trying and I almost give up trying. That why i did Ivf. I m blessed be pregnant. I pray I can reach 12 weeks. Only 3 more weeks to go.

Wish u a smooth twin pregnancy journey.

Hi Rass81,

This is my 1st pregnancy. I had been trying for 3 years and then decided to do IVF

Last week I was admitted because of tummy pain. Dr T said I had preterm. And stayed 3 days. Now resting at home. Doc said I must rest and rest. He said its better than delivering early and baby will need special care. I still have 3 months to go. Counting my days.

Happy to hear that your pregnancy is still well. Oh dear, you ll have to rest a lot. At least until 12 weeks. Did doc tell you the cause of your losses? A friend of mine had similar 3 time losses and her 4th had cervix tightening and her baby was saved and healthy. May be you should try cervix tightening. :)

Hi Everyone, hope all you are well. It has been ages ever since I log in here. Welcome aboard to all the newbies. Let me share with you guys my IVF journey. I was diagnosed with unexplained fertility. Done HSG, Laparoscopy, ovary drilling, D & C…nothing happened & I was at my late 20’s. The Dr told I am still young & long way to go. I did 2 IUI in between & failed as well. We immediately decided to go on with IVF procedure. I did mine at TMC by Dr Surinder Singh & it cost me approximately RM12-15k. It is considered cheap as I went to Umra Medical Centre in Shah Alam. All my medications were given by Umra & only the procedure done at TMC. Dr Surinder use to be in Umra once in a week. Now I think his bro in law Dr Navdeep Singh is the Fertility Consultant at Umra. When I was taking my jabs, the scan show couple of eggs. They manage to retrieve 25 eggs & Dr Surinder told me after washed just manage to get 15 healthy eggs. I think that is still good. Since it is more then 10, Dr recommended to keep it till day 5 & told at least will get a matured embryo but only half may survive. As he told, we manage to get 7 embryos. He told will place 2 best category embryos & balance will be frozed. I was given 2 weeks MC to bed rest. After 2 weeks, I went back to work. He asked me to come back 4 weeks after the procedure to do Beta HCG, but I so sibuk did pregnancy test in between lol which was 3 weeks after procedure I got strong BFP (positive) in clearblue & in some RM5 test kid. The time we went for blood test I knew I am pregnant but just worried. The result came back 13xx, which the Dr told high & maybe twins.On the first tvs scan, we sac 1 sac & was very happy to see something there. We went back for a scan at 6th week & for our surprise we saw 2 bulbs with a strong heartbeat (TWINS). We couldn’t be more happier than this. I was quite careful in what I consume…as usual paranoid most of the time. The same year i delivered 2 healthy baby girls weighing 2.9 & 2.8kgs… We decided to do a FET (frozen embryo transfer) later when my girls are a bit bigger & we should try on our own first as FET also do cost a bomb. When they were 3 years old, we tried & I got pregnant on the very first try. I was shocked & the baby was growing healthy. No complication or paranoid as its singleton & everything looks good. In week 13, it’s a HIM. We felt so complete. He born as healthy big baby weighing 3.4 kg at week 37. Now he just turned 1. My frozen embryo is still there (sob sob). It’s quite heart aching to destroy it as we struggled a lot to get it. So guys, I have learned that my unexplained infertility is due to stress & pressure of really wanting a baby which we can’t avoid but if can best not to stress. I know it’s easier to said than done coz I went through the same. I hope, more positive updates on the way. Good luck guys. God Bless!

Hi Everyone,

Its been sometime since I last chat here. I delivered last month. Cesarean. one boy one girl

I want to share my feeling. I m so lucky to have my twin. My life with my HB is so much different. No more hoping in silence everyday. No more emptiness. Our days are filled and we r things to look forward for next day.  My journey through ivf is not easy. After that my pregnancy with my twin was stressful. A lot of rest and restriction. In the end It was worth it. I would like to thank all the support that I have received. :) 

Hi Rass81,

Hope u r doing fine and trying

Hi All,

I am misha from Kuching. A little bit of introduction of myself. Been married since 2010 and had been ttc since then. Less than one year into ttc, since I haven’t got pregnant, hubby and me decided to seek advice from specialist. It was also due to my age catching up, was 33 years old then. Result shows that we are quite normal. After some time, we visited other specialist as well and also seek assistance from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Due to age catching up, we also went to Klinik Pakar @ Specialist centre at SGH for 3 IUIs but all failed. We seek a few more assistance from TCM around Kuching and also a TCM from Penang. I think we spent more than RM10K for TCM. Still no good news but we can feel our body condition is improving. In 2014, we took a rest from all treatment as all treatment made us feel stressful. In 2014 also, I started to seriously do research on ivf treatment. Towards the end of 2014, we decided to go for ivf at London Fertility Centre under Dr Chieng. Consultation and treatment started late 2014 and ET was done 15 Jan 2015. We were hopeful but at the same time, we also know the chances were slim. Dr Chieng had informed us during consultation that, possibility to get positive result during first trial is low. Most couple will need to go through a few treatments for a baby. Some will get a pair of twin while a few luckier one will get triplets. It was a negative for our first trial. We were very sad even though we were ready for the negative result. I still remember my trembling hands when I did my HPT on day 15 after ET. The procedure were not easy but were not as bad as what I had think of earlier.

We rested a few months and we planned to have another ivf. But this time I started to take additional supplements for me and hubby. I took royal jelly, coenzyme Q10 and chlorella, while hubby took royal jelly and folic acid. Before we started the second ivf, I got pregnant spontaneously. Hubby and me were thrilled and excited and worry at the same time. We took it one day at a time and I recently gave birth to a lovely baby.

Before I decided for ivf, I’ve done a lot of readings especially on this forum. I think I read this forum from page 1 for at least 2 times. I took note of important sharing from all users. Thus, I’m truly thankful for all members who had shared their journey and experience here. Some stories made my tears run down. These sharing on this forum had made my journey easier.

For those who still ttc:

11) Be positive

22) Look into your and your partner diet and do some changes if necessary

33) No stress (I know this is not easy but I realised this is really important)

44) Most important of all is PRAY

Again, I would like to thank all members who had shared their experience and tips here. I am truly thankful to all of you. Thus, I told myself I must share my experience here and I never regretted my first ivf. Somehow, after the ivf, hubby and me feel less stressful because we had tried our best. Baby dust to all who still ttc.
