26 Jul Anna – Greece
I have stage 4 endometriosis, which was removed by laparoscopy when I was 28-29. I was trying to conceive for 2 years and before having IVF I tried medication and injections. My first IVF cycle, with egg collections/transfers, was at the age of 33 and led to the birth of my first child, my son!
I regret I hadn’t tried IVF earlier. I would have saved much of the physical and emotional pain endured.
I was lucky to find this wonderful person, Dr Vassilis Athanassiou. Who treated me as a human being and not as just another “sell”, showing respect, understanding and professional wisdom. This is also the case for every member of the staff that I met.
Special tip: the consulting psychologist, who helped me to stay positive all the way. Good luck and my best wishes to all hope-to-be-moms out there!
