Treatment Received: IVF with Donor Eggs
A couple of years ago I was having issues becoming pregnant. After 3 rounds of IUI here in San Francisco where I live I heard about Iscare through my sister. The decision to travel to Prague for treatment while working a full time job was not taken lightly. The cost of IVF in the US is extremely expensive often 30 - 40,000 Euro's. With the less expensive prices in the Czech Republic it made sense to travel to Europe for the treatment. I was also able to work while in Prague which made things easier. Last year after 4 attempts I became pregnant through IVF with Dr Hulvert. We found out during my first two attempts that I had empty follicles and was unable to produce a viable egg. After some time we decided to move forward with embryo donation and opted to do IVF with ICSI. The clinic found a donor we were happy with. My third trip and my first embryo transfer failed sadly, so we attempted a second transfer in April. I was 41 years old so we decided to transfer two embryo's and I became pregnant during this trip.

Dr Hulvert and his team of doctors, nurses, coordinators, lab technician's etc. offered an outstanding service. The team were highly professional, and pleasant to work with. They were very empathetic and understood the emotional turmoil that we were going through in trying to become pregnant. Dr Hulvert himself is a very warm individual and gave his undivided attention to us. He answered all our questions spent the necessary time to make sure we felt comfortable. Beatrice, Jan and the international team were excellent in their organization and ensuring that everything was coordinated for our visits, even to the point of driving me to my hotel after one appointment which was extremely generous. If you are considering IVF I highly recommend Iscare with Dr Hulvert, and would not look anywhere else.

I am now lucky enough to have two baby boy fraternal twins that are 7 weeks old, all thanks to Dr Hulvert and the team at the Iscare clinic.

"We were happily welcome by all the staffs that attended to us"

Treatment Received: IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation
I want to use this opportunity for thank Dr. Hulvert and the entire staff. Special thanks also go to Beatriz Lopez for all the great assistance she has been offering to us.

We have been trying to have a baby for five years now. It has always been a continues battle for us but we never gave up as we knew one day the Almighty will answer our prayers. So we kept trying. We tried insemination in Belgium four times and it wasn't successful, we then decided to try IVF still in Belgium but could not continue because the treatment wasn't responding.

We then started contacting other Fertility clinics from abroad and we came in contact with Beatriz Lopez from ISCARE IVF Clinic. We had several conversations with her about the procedure and what we need to do. She really did a lot for us because my wife will contact her sometimes at late hours. We did the first IVF with ISCARE IVF Clinic in 2016 and it wasn't successful. But we kept on moving with our struggle. We did the second time last August 2017. My wife is now pregnant with TWINS, thanks to ISCARE IVF Clinic. I wish to encourage other couples who are facing the same situation to never give up, just keep trying and one day the doors will be open for you.

We had contacted many other fertility clinics, we compared the prices and all that it takes to carry out the treatment in the various clinics, but one thing was outstanding with ISCARE because we had many conversations with Beatriz Lopez and she gave us all the information and explanations we needed. Our first visit was really a good trip because the clinic actually helped us in arranging for a hotel and also taxi. Everything moved smoothly as planned and we were happily welcome by all the staffs that attended to us.

"The treatment went very smooth because of the good support the staff of the clinic gave us"
100%Reviewed 06 Apr 2017 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Fertility Specialist Consultation
We went to Iscare to undergo an ICSI treatment to achieve a pregnancy through surrogacy. After our doughter was born i lost my uterus because of massive bloodloss. One year after the delivery a good friend of ours offerd to be our surrogatmother and cary our second child for us (100% biologically ours). In our homecountry we could not be helped because our surrogatmother did not have any children of her own (she does not want children of her own!). There is only 1 hospital in our homecountry where surrogacytreatment is possible and they sadly did not want to make an exeption on this 'rule' that a surogatmother must have a 'complete' family of her own (discussion about what a compleet family is, was also not possible).
After a long search for hospitals / clinics abroad where surrogacy was possible we came across Iscare and contacted them (although surrogacy is not on there website) because they looked professional . After a thorough srceening via Skype and a visit to Praha they told us they wanted to help us (as first foreign couple that requested a surrogacy treatment, we are still very greatfull for that!!). The treatment went very smooth because of the good support the staff of the clinic gave us. They responded very quickly on all our questions via whatsapp and email. They judged al the bloodtest and ultrasounds we send from our homecountry on short notice. They were in the lead and we follwed up theire advice. The first treatment we ended up with one embryotransfer (no pregnancy). The second treatment (using picsi) ended in one fresh embryo transfer and 2 embryo's that are frozen (i almost don't dare to say it out loud, but we are 6 weeks pregnant now :)!!)

As said above, the clinic is very professional. The staff is very kind and helpfull and the admosphere is relaxed and comforting. They do screen realy well, so they only help couples with a clinical diagnosis for conception through surrogacy only (where strict home country legislation which excludes them from receiving the necessary help). This we found comforting and a sign of their professionality. We are 3 people that travel a lot and speak our foreing languages. If you are not that kind of type...you might find it harder to undergo the treatment because it does include a lot of traveling and, coming with that, also more effort to arrange certain things (flight / hotel, city transport etc.) befor and during your stay.

"This clinic is modern, clean and very central"
90%Reviewed 05 Dec 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Fertility Specialist Consultation
Embryo Donation with matching donors. I'm 39 with repeated miscarriages. Have had all sorts of treatments since I turned 32. We had options at home but were really inclined towards an anonymous donor program, so Czech rep. was our best bet. We didn't want to have any embryo they had frozen at the clinic so we waited for the clinic to find similarly looking donors to us and had a transfer of two -fresh (3 more are frozen).
I found Iscare through whatclinic's advert in google, did my research and sent an enquiry. I was very happy with their communication, no detail left behind. Dr. Hulvert and Dr.Maria seemed very experienced and busy! I had Beatrice as my consultant from the start, she helped me with my planning and accompanied me to the first and other main consultations. I was informed of what was happening at all times and had clarity about costs before traveling (this was key to us for going abroad since we had already gone through a bad experience in a different clinic where we ended up paying twice the estimate). This clinic is modern, clean and very central. Their approach is conservative so don't expect 40 eggs from a donor! We stayed at an airbnb near the clinic but I'd probably stay in town next time, Prague's very small.

"would recommend US couples to explore this option"
90%Reviewed 27 Jul 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Egg Donor, IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation
My story: I was 38 when I did my first IVF cycle in the US. I had 6 eggs, 3 fertilised with ICSI and 1 of them was graded as a good embryo for transfer, I didn’t get pregnant. I went in for a second cycle but this time I didn’t have any embryos for transfer. Our credit cards were through the roof, we didn’t want to give up but we knew we had to find alternatives abroad if we wanted to go for a third round. The third time around I was in touch with Dr. Hulvert and he suggested I went through a combined cycle (they would stimulate a donor and me at the same time)

I heard about Dr. Hulvert from a Czech friend who has lived in Chicago for the past 20 years. She did a lot of the Czech clinics research for me. It appeared Dr. Hulvert and Iscare had very compelling testimonies from Czech patients all over the net, she thought I should go for a locally renowned physician and clinic rather than try a facility dedicated to foreign patients only. I am glad I did that. I was a bit afraid about the language and getting my message through to doctors and nurses, but to my surprise, they all spoke some english- even if they said they didn’t, they were able to communicate fairly well. I also had a dedicated fertility consultant explaining every step of the treatment and helping me program everything by email and phone, it felt like having my own “IVF assistant”, she was approachable, knowledgeable and always ready to answer any questions.

My cycle was synchronised with the Donor and I got to Prague to start my own stimulation the next day- I stayed for a month. My results from this third IVF were nil, one follicle and no egg. I’m glad we tried as much as we could with my eggs and that the Dr. suggested this option, it gave me hope but we were also glad to have 'plan B' with the Donor. The waiting was tedious though, 3 months for the clinic to find a donor match and do all the tests seemed endless, but I had gone through a lot already so I figured.. And, most importantly, the fact that donors in Czech are anonymous was both: worth the wait and in line with what we wanted as a family. I’m now starting my 26th week and feeling good, just turned 41 this summer.

I really-closed eyes- would recommend US couples to explore this option, especially for Egg Donor- this would have costed me at least $20.000 at home for the Donor Eggs alone, and it ended up costing us a fraction for a combined cycle, including our travel and my stay in Prague for the whole month. I did have to take 2 weeks unpaid leave but my husband had to be there for a long weekend only, so all in all, it turned out to be a good investment (maybe I'll think different when we're sleep deprived a few months down the road!)

"I’m 14 weeks pregnant now and a few days short of my 41st birthday"
90%Reviewed 02 Mar 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation
I had been trying for 5 years for my first child. I had a miscarriage at 10 weeks when I was 39. I didn’t want to "over-manipulate" things so I wanted to stay with IUI as long as I could, did a total of 8. But I did realize my time was running out so I booked myself into ISCARE for ICSI with donated sperm (my partner's was not good). I decided this after my first skype consultation, I gave up with IUI after that talk. I’m 14 weeks pregnant now and a few days short of my 41st birthday, hoping this baby stays with me this time.

I was very happy with my treatment. I wanted to keep things as natural as possible but when you really want a baby and it's not happening, you gotta go the extra mile and let science come into play. I managed to get un-paid time off from work and moved to Prague for 20 days, it was great. Being in a different setting really helped me clear my head and focus on getting pregnant, plus, I spent less than I would have back at home in those 20 days (yes! including air ticket and accommodation). Ironically we just moved from Toronto to the UK so I could have saved the long stay and travel a couple of times to Prague but I don't regret my time off. The doctor and the embryologist were very patient, I think I was getting on their nerves at couple of times but they always kept their cool, very professional. They were very helpful with my travel plans, I was often in touch with their English speaking fertility specialists, which is a great thing as they can access the doctors anytime and give you feedback without going through switchboards and different clinic personnel. They also found me a real nice short-term apartment and helped me book a yoga retreat in a monastery prior to the embryo transfer. I'm sure it's going to happen for us this time.

"very high level of medical care and professionals"
90%Reviewed 18 Feb 2016 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Fertility Specialist Consultation
I was 35 at the time, had been diagnosed with PCOS. My husband was 38 and had a low sperm count. We had been trying to have a family for 4 years without success. We decided to have a procedure in Ireland and it didn’t work. My gynecologist knew we couldn’t afford another procedure and had recently met his old friend, Dr. Hulvert, at a Fertility conference, he highly recommended him and his Clinic.
We went to Prague for a long weekend. We visited ISCARE and meet Dr. Hulvert. If you are having second thoughts about going abroad for a fertility procedure, a long weekend trip to Prague can give you peace of mind. Humble and knowledgeable, the doctor can give you a very realistic view of your chances, no false promises. We also visited other clinics and two more doctors during our preview trip and, in fairness, I think there is a very high level of medical care and professionals in Czech, but in my case, I think I really need to have a connection with my doctor. Our biggest accomplishment during that visit was getting to see the doctor, nurses and clinic. Though they treat many overseas patients too, I was lucky to be able to jump on a plane for a couple of hours and get answers to all my questions face to face. We traveled for DE treatment a month after, they had given us all the meds to bring home and I was in touch with their staff for administration and planning the next visit. We happily made it! my husband and I traveled when the Donor eggs were collected and spent a fabulous week in Prague We couldn’t have afforded another procedure at home.

"Wonderful experience"
100%Reviewed 26 Jan 2016 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: ICSI - Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection
I had my first ICSI in Spain: 11 eggs collected, 9 of which could be fertilized, 3 made it to day 2 and both were transferred on that same day. BFN. A friend’s friend, same age as me- 33, had had two treatments in Prague and was happily pregnant with twins. I went to her Clinic, ISCARE, for my second ICSI. I had 6 eggs collected, 3 of which were fertilized. They transferred one of them on the 4th day. BFP! Just the way the dice rolls, I guess…
The clinic and medical staff were fabulous. Very kind people and truly dedicated to their jobs. The doctor speaks with passion about every minor detail. It was a pleasure to hear him go over the ultrasound explaining everything and being so upbeat about the baby all the time. We went back to Prague for various checks (we took it as a get-away excuse for a couple of times during my first and second trimesters and he agreed to see us). Wonderful experience. I had a very healthy pregnancy and gave birth to a massive and healthy baby boy! Have recently been in touch again as we want to explore options about my other two embryos.

"Now we have a six month old baby!"
100%Reviewed 10 Jan 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: PGD - Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis, IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation, Embryo Freezing
Initial idea was to undergo the egg donation treatment as my ovarian reserve has been evaluated as very low here in UK, but after having the primary examination at ISCARE clinic I was told that using my occytes could work. After considering pros and cons we have decided to try the regular IVF (with my own eggs) and now we have 6 months old baby :)

I can only confirm that what is written about Dr Hulvert all over the internet is true. Doctors and nurses made me feel very welcome and anytime I was at the clinic there was an associate with me answering my questions and making the waiting time less boring.
We are now considering to try again as soon as our baby will grow a little and things will calm.
