IVF was a daunting prospect for us. We didn't know where to begin, even what questions to ask. It was also worrying from a point of view of cost, so we began looking outside our home country for options. When it comes to choosing a fertility clinic in Istanbul there are many attractive clinics to choose from. We spent a lot of time reading the fertility forums trying to "read between the lines" of couples' experiences searching for a facility that demonstrated expertise in the field, yet we were put off by institutes that seemed (in our opinion) to spend a lot on marketing.
The feedback on Medicana International Beylikduzu on these forums suggested that we would be comfortable seeking treatment there, Beylikduzu is about 40km from the old city, yet by no means remote. It is home to 3 major shopping malls, and good 5 star hotels are located nearby. Most of all, the people in this area are known to us to be warm and hospitable which can be distant in the more tourist areas of the city. It was this factor along with the credentials of Professor Selman and his team that influenced our decision to book a consultation with him in November 2016.
Prof Selman leads a quartet of charming fellow professionals, whom seconds after meeting had removed any doubts or concerns around placing our needs in their care. In the days that followed we regularly visited the intimate clinic within the Medicana hospital and left each consultation with an extraordinary feeling of comfort affirming we had made the best choice for this life changing process.. The doctors are assisted by Head Nurse Derya, and Relations Executive Yelda both with fantastic sense of humor and the ability to make us feel part of their family rather that patients or customers. The hospital rooms are bright and very spacious, and the clinic hosts it's own theater for the collection and transfer procedures. Medicana IVF clinic is warm, friendly and above all run by expert professionals with results to support this testimonial. To Prof Selman, Dr Aysun, Dr Onur and especially Dr Fatma, Nurse Derya and Yelda please accept our heartfelt thanks. Your care was far and beyond the call of duty. We miss you and will remember you always.

To Prof. Dr Selman, Dr Onur and Mrs Aysan Candas and to all concerned staff.
We would like to take this opportunity to extend our most sincere and humble gratitude to our friends Dr Selman, Dr Onur and to Mrs Aysan for their extraordinary and outstanding work. The time and dedication you have invested in making the almost impossible and now a dream come is something that will be heartfelt and never forgotten. Thank you so much.
We are a married couple from overseas living in Turkey for two years due to my employment status. We were aware of the complications my wife was faced with regards to conceiving a child naturally, therefore we had to prepare for the worst possible outcome. However, there was still light shining for us at the end of the tunnel with some room for hope.
It was not long after our research that we had found Medicana. A hospital in Istanbul that has a dedicated department for IVF Treatment. On our arrival to the hospital we were warmly welcomed by the staff and was introduced to Dr Selman for our consultation. As nervous as we were to hear bad news, the doctor and staff reassured us continuously and told us that everything would be OK. It was our opportunity to ask as many questions as we wanted. This made us feel right at home. This was the choice for us.
My wife initially underwent a lot of treatment for IVF preparation. However every visit was reassuring and with the staff we felt completely relaxed knowing we were in the good hands of Doctor Selman, Doctor Onur and Mrs Aysan.
When we were ready to start the IVF treatment, we were given clear and explicit instructions before hand and what to expect. This made us feel at ease with no discomfort whatsoever.
We underwent a freezing process for the embryo, (this was one of the options that was recommended by Dr Selman). This process enabled the the frozen embryo to be thawed and left for a day to become a blastocyst on the fifth day before it was transferred to the the womb. This was a very delicate stage in the IVF process and was timed just perfectly by the dedicated team and the doctors. Of course some pain during the IVF is inevitable, but pain is nothing compared to what the doctors have endured with the responsibility that lies in their hands when going through such a delicate procedure.
It was only ten days later my wife went for a blood check at the hospital. The results showed positive, and my wife was pregnant on her first attempt of IVF treatment. The feeling was unimaginable, the excitement was breath taking and the emotions of happiness were seen through tears from our eyes. What more could we ask for.
So here we are, experiencing new feelings and different emotions. With our continuous visits for regular check ups, Dr Selman, Dr Onur and their lovely assistant Mrs Aysan are still with us for all the support we need. THANK YOU SO MUCH, You truly are angels on our shoulders.
Thank you to all the staff that are so dedicated in the IVF clinic. I'm sure every time you see success you feel the reward and satisfaction in every way.
Science, it is the ongoing discovery of facts, it is revolutionising the world we live in today.

For a long time, I and my husband had tried to realize our dream of having a child in several in vitro fertilization centers, without success.
We finally found Medicana International IVF Center where dr. Selman Lacin and the foreign patients representative Aysan were always willing to address our questions and provide advice and support right from the beginning and even now when I'm 15 weeks pregnant.
Our experience with Medicana International IVF Center and the staff was excellent. Being different from other clinics, we had a personalized treatment which gave us the best embryos which we ever had and thanks to which I am now pregnant. My hormones were monitored every other day with blood analysis so I can benefit of the best hormone dosage. Everything went smooth and we transferred 2 embryos out of which I am now pregnant with one healthy baby boy.
Everything was great from the arrival till the end of our journey in Istanbul. The driver took us from the airport to the building where the accommodation was provided. The studio, provided by the clinic, was extraordinary and very close to the clinic, within walking distance.
Thanks again to dr. Selman Lacin, Aysan and all the staff at Medicana.
We recommend couples that have not managed to realize their dream of having a child not to lose hope and contact dr. Selman Lacin and Aysan at Medicana International IVF Center Istanbul.

My wife and I have been trying for a few years and in fact my wife had undergone through a number of failed treatments in the UK. Thanks to Medicana treatments, and with grace of God, we now have a baby daughter from our first try at Medicana.
We decided to use Medicana solely on the basis of the reviews which people who had previously used the Medicana treatment left on this page. So I guess the code of civility says that I should also share our positive experience with anyone who’s considering to seek IVF treatments at Medicana. Our experience was excellent from airport picked-ups, good accommodations to world class treatments not to mention of the cheap (relative to the UK) treatment costs. The hospital has very well-qualified and caring fertility specialists who understood our needs. The doctors quickly understood our needs and put in place a treatment plan for us with a clear timetable. We thank the doctors for their professionalisms and dedications. Ms Aysan is the international face of the hospital. Aysan has excellent communication skills and whenever we needed for her assistants during our stay in Turkey, she was there for us (on phone + emails) this is in despite of her busy schedules. She is extremely helpful and would help you navigate the process.
To sum-up I’d say this: if you’re looking for world class IVF treatments with reasonable prices, then don’t go elsewhere; if you want professional dealings and caring people then Medicana is the place to go. Just give it a go and I’m optimistic that you won’t be disappointed.
Thank you to all Medicana crews for your help, Sincerely, Abdullah from UK
Today is one year after transfer of one our embryo and we are sending the photo of our twin babies (born March 19) for internet page.
Now we can share them with others :) Thank You very much !!! And wish good luck !

Dear Dr. Selman & Aysan
We would like to thank you from the bottom of heart for the IVF treatment which was successful in in the last attempt, My Wife and I have struggled with infertility for over 5 years. We went through a very difficult and unsuccessful IVF cycles. I think what you do for a living is amazing. Your job is to laugh in the face of infertility and grow families. I can say "thank you" on behalf of your patients, our story is not the same as the patient before me, our journey has been long, and as tired as I am from talking about it, I hope you take time to listen to my story starts with a perforation on the abdomen due to doctor mistake during Labroscopy procedures which resulted on damaging the fallopian tubes, which makes a normal fertility is impossible and IVF is the only solution, after one attempt of IVF at UAE, we experience unprofessional way of treatment, we left with no option excepet to fly out of UAE to try again in Jordan with three unsuccessful IVFs, the doctor kept trying without being honest to clip the fallopian tubes to stop the infection due to the damage during the labroscopy, till our journey was landed at Istanbul to meet Dr. Selman and his team to say in the first day, we have to clip the fallopian tubes before we go through any IVF procedures, in that day we felt this time we met the honest person that cares about his patient more than money. Then we flew to Germany and did the surgery to clip the fallopian tubes, after that the IVF was successafull with frozen embroyes, and now my wife is pregenant with twins.
This is really great time for us and our family and I can say with full confidence that you are not only the best IVF doctor in Istanbul , but also best motivator , gentleman with a dashing personality.
Sir,we wish you and your entire team along with special thanks to Aysan Candas for this journey and we pray that every patient gets the baby they long for.

We have tried IVF treatment 3 times in Germany, but unfortunately all the tests results came as negative .
I searched on the internet about different IVF centers and I have read a lot of good comments about Doctor Selman Lacin and his IVF center.
I decided to come for IVF treatment in Medicana. We tried our treatment there and were really satisfied in all aspects.
We had only one healthy embryo for transfer and doctor Selman said we had about % 70-75 chance for to have a baby. He was right... Now, we have a healthy baby boy. It was not an easy time period for us but at the end, we succeeded.
Doctor Selman Lacin and his team were excellent.
Thanks for everything..

Dear Dr Selman and Team,
My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for the last 8 years and due to me having Underactive Thyroid and pituitary issues. I found out I was not ovulating and various medication my Gynaecology department in the UK recommended were unsuccessful. So they said the only option I had left was to try IVF but I had to pay for it privately.
Thus I began my research on the internet and came across Medicine International IVF Centre, I made the initial contact by filling in the form and I received a prompt reply from Aysan Candas she advised me to send all my medical record to the Dr Selman. After the Dr analysed my medical file he reassured me that my chance of getting pregnant will be around 60-65 % with two blastocyst transfer. I felt I had hope at long last and I felt very reassured and happy despite my age of being 33 years old I thought my time was running out. Also Dr Selman was very familiar with women whom had similar medical condition as me as the reason why I was not ovulating was due to my Underactive Thyroid.
Also I wasn’t getting my period regularly and I was overweight so the Dr advised me to take medication to regulate my period and to lose weight as this will help me with my chances of conceiving. I was advised that can start my IVF cycle at anytime but I should visit the hospital on my 2nd or 3rd day of my cycle.
I followed the advice of the Dr and I took the medication needed to regulate my period. Also when we were ready we got in contact with Aysan whom arranged our accommodation and our airport transfer. We were given several IVF packages prices and accommodation choices, but we choose to stay with IBIS Hotel which was only 10 minute from the Hospital, Aysan made the whole booking and arranging for our appointment very easy and as she and whole staff spoke English very well so it made communication fairly easy with the team.
I would highly recommend the IBIS Hotel, the hotel was very clean and comfortable, there were plenty of breakfast to choose from and the hotel staffs was very hospitable and accommodating.
We choose the 3 week option package as I thought it may take me longer to ovulate and plus we wanted to have a holiday at the same time so that we can relax and so that the treatment would not be stressful.
During the treatment I felt Dr Selman and his team looked after us very well, they always gave me feedback after every blood test and ultrasound scan and the Dr Selman and his team are very experienced and if the medication dosage wasn’t working they would adjust the dosage to achieve optimum result.
I felt throughout the whole process reassured if had any concern or question I could call Aysan anytime and the Dr always took time to treat me as an individual and hear my question and he gave me his undue attention. I didn’t just feel like a patient at a clinic but more special than that and the Dr and his team guided me throughout the whole process. I wasn’t alone in this journey.
At the end I had two successful embryos transferred and I got pregnant with 1 baby. I am now 5 months pregnant and everything is going extremely well. Considering this is my 1st IVF I am very lucky, but I believe with God’s help and the professional care and assistance I got with Dr Selman made this miracle happen for me. Words cannot describe how happy and fulfilled this pregnancy has been for both me and my husband, this baby is everything I longed for and it would finally complete our family.
If anyone is considering trying the IVF at Medicine International IVF; I would say go for it because you will not be disappointed with care and attention you will receive from them. I took a chance and it paid off and it’s the best decision I have every made.
Even now that I am back home in the UK and pregnant, Dr Selman and Aysan are still in contact with me they give advice and answer any question I still may have with regards to how the pregnancy is developing.
I have received 5 star care and assistance from this hospital and the team and I would advice any women with fertility issue please don’t hesitate to contact Dr Selman and best of luck.
From the bottom of my heart I would like to conclude this letter and say big thank you to Dr Selman and his team, words cannot describe how grateful I am to you and your team as you have made my wish come true and gave me hope that I didn’t have or thought was possible.
Baby is due in August 2015,
Many thanks J

Originally from Somalia but live in the UK.
After a lot of hard research for the best place to get ivf done from , i ended up in turkey as it has the best results at a high percentage rate . Overall i had the best experiance ever, staff and doctors were so welcoming, friendly and caring . I wasn't worried at all as they would discuss each and every procedure to me in full detail . If i was worried about anything, someone was there to guide me through any questions. I didn't even feel the language barrier as they spoke English . I would recommend this hospital to everyone as i got the very best reults my self , I fell pregnant with the first go of ivf, i was very lucky . I gave birth at 42 wks to a very beautiful and healthy baby girl .

Dear Dr. Selman and Team,
We are happy that we found and selected Medicana for our one more try to do IVF. We tried to conceive in our country clinics during 9 years: it has been made many blood tests, laparoscopy, 6 IUI and one unsuccessful IVF. Two last years we did nothing because we lost the hope to have a baby.
First contact with Medicana was virtual - we found this clinic on Internet, we wrote the email given on a web site and Dr.Selman answered immediately in very nice manner. Later we send all our tests and procedures to doctor, he have studied our history and said that we can come any time on the 2-3th day of my cycle for the treatment.
When we were finishing our works at home, my cycle was very irregular and I wrote and asked some questions to dr. Selman and always got the answer in one day. Aysan suggested for us living places around the clinic and helped to book the living place, she organized our transfer from airport to hotel also. This was very helpful for people who were first time in Istanbul.
During our treatment we always compared our first IVF with the second one. We found only advantages, such us:
- visiting doctor and testing, making ultrasound every day, even these days were holidays in Turkey;
- high competence of doctors and very good distribution and sharing of functions between personal;
- individual approach to the situation, not using unified schemes for treatment;
- application of medications by nurses every time;
- full explanation and giving all information about the process;
- personal wards before each procedure;
- orientation to the quality of eggs, not for quantity;
- more drugs after puncture and embryo transfer;
- good technology and embryology.
In some words, Medicana's team got an embryo from one follicle, tranfered it and it still grows on :) Our earlier experience was no embryos from three follicles.
Doctors and all personal wanted to help us and to get a result - the pregnancy. This is very nice and highly professional.
Doctor Selman and Aysan keep in touch after the procedure, they are interested in results. Definitely we can recommend the clinic to other patients.
Thank You very much!

Dear Dr Lacin & Team,
We are so pleased and happy to let you know that the entire ivf treatment that we did last month was a success as already communicated earlier.
The Expertise and the Support that we received from Medicana International Hospital (IVF Department) was outstanding- I must add and stress more that the entire procedure was stress free unlike what I had in my mind.
Dr Lacin is just one of the kindest people with a unique personality that I have come across he was always ready to answer questions asked and always on time for the examinations , gave us the encouragement to move on , I remember him saying ‘’ It looks promising don’t worry and here we are …..THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH DR.
Dr Aysun (Lacin Wife) - did the transfer wow always smiling and knew what she was doing great lady and made sure there was no pain at all.
Dr Mehmet Koc – Great person knew what he was doing and gave lots of encouragements. THUMBS UP & THANK YOU
The Nurses (particularly the ones who gave hormone Suppression) jus lovely ladies explained everything in detail to Aysan and were so kind to an extent of offering tea sometimes, really felt great ladies - Thank You.

I have attached a brief note letter to express our experience we have received during last months treatment, please do not hesitate to post this to the website and forward this note to the Board of Directors/Owners of Medicana and everyone who was involved and supported us through this.
As I have stated briefly on the letter, I will try my very best and have no hesitation to refer anyone that comes across who are in need of your services, I will personally try and come and meet you in person at some point and I hope this can be arranged but in the mean time, I have a good connection of people and contacts across, Italy, Albania and here in United Kingdom and will be happy to refer anyone at your direction.

Hi i would like to come for the second baby ibshallah but wish for a girl plz let me know how much now and when is good season for summer but anael is doing well 8 month and two weeks we are very happy and proud of him and we thank your team
My name is Mrs. Tekle and I have been trying to conceive for the last four years. I became pregnant year and half a go but end up miscarrying after 29 week.
My experience in a few fertility centers in U.S. is difficult one to say the list. Especially Shady Grove fertility center, It is all about money( have spent over $33,ooo). I do sometimes feel like its a factory not a treatment center. I thought for sure there would be others on here feel the same. I only saw my doctor once while I was on the treatment. Every time I went, I see nurse, Unlike my Doctor at Medicana international hospital in Istanbul, Dr. Selman.
Dr. Selman is my doctor and his International Patient Coordinator Aysan and his nurses have been beyond phenomenal and my overall experience has been wonderful.
Yes, Medicana fertility center is busy with many patient coming from all over the world, but when it is your time for the examination, they make you feel like you are the only patent in the hospital and walk you each step of they way. Very very attentive, they really take their time to answer any question you might have. The facility is clean and so convenient for transportation. And the fee for the treatment and medication is incomparable with U.S. I recommend Medican international fertility hospital for anyone who are eager to build a family.

I want to inform you that my husband and I arrived safely in Nigeria on saturday. Our plane was a bit late and we arrived in the night around 10.30pm.
I want to thank you for your kind assistance throughout our stay. Aysan really made us felt at home. We really appreciate it.
I also thank all the hospital staff especially Ozge. You are wonderful people and God will continue to bless you all.
I want to say a big THANK YOU to Dr. Lacin. He is the nicest person I have met. Greetings to his wife too, I would have loved to meet her also.
I will keep you abreast of development and the happy news.

Dear Doctor Selman
We are pleased to let you know that Dr. Moroney confirmed today that one of the two embryos is successful.
We are really grateful for your support and expertise. The service provided was so much better than the UK, in so many ways (regular nurse and doctor appointments, many blood tests and scans, good accommodation in a luxury location with a children park, general anaesthesia, hospital bed, small lunch, cheaper all inclusive price…)
We are grateful for all of your assistance. We will therefore post a little present from the UK to you.
- Pierre really wanted a little sister. His mother tried many IVF cycles in the UK. Unfortunately, they all failed. She decided to go for a final attempt with Medicana in Turkey with a natural IVF cycle and a 5 day embryo selection. Thanks to Medicana's high care and expertise, this IVF cycle was successful first time around. Lily was born 3.2 kg, with blue eyes and brown hair. Pierre is now so happy to have a little sister.

Our IVF Story: After trying diffrent methods for almost 3 years,just 2 visits in 6 months to Medicana International Hospital in Istanbul Turkey got us Pregnant.
HOW WE DISCOVERED AND CHOSE MEDICANA
I came across Medicana International Hospital in Istanbul ,Turkey online. I was impressed with what I saw online of the hospital's infastracture and IVF Unit,and the fact that English speaking Dr Selman Laçin (who heads up the IVF Department), answerd all my email questions quickly and personally.After sending him my test results and scans along with my Husbands semen analysis and test results, he briefed us on the type of treatment and protocol I could undergo with them.My Husband and I liked the fact that not only did Medicana offer a complete package that included airport transfers ,accommodation ,treatmet ,medication and cryptopreservation for 5 years,but also that Dr Selman Laçin and his staff were attentive to us even before we got there to Istanbul.This made a very good first impression on us.I was confident that this would be the hospital for us,and so we decided to trust in Medicana and Dr Selman Laçin and his staff for our 2nd IVF cycle.
OUR FIRST IMPRESSIONS WHEN WE ARRIVED
We flew into Istanbul, and a very polite Medicana Hospital driver met us at the airport and took us straight to Medicana(which is on the European side of Istanbul),where the IVF Unit 's very lovely English speaking Patient Advisor(called Aysan Candaş ) was waiting for us at the Hospitals front entrance with a big welcoming smile!.(She had communicated with us also by email before we had arrived).She took us to see the IVF coordinator (called Gülden Çakır) ,and acted as the translator.Our Accommodation was sorted out within the hour.We were so very impressed with the hospital.It is really big, really modern,is architecturally beautiful,has many different departments, is very high tech, and the staff all friendly and helpful.
THE ACCOMMODATION AND THE AREA
We were also impressed and happy with our accommodation,and the fact that it was a stones throw from Medicana Hospital(physical view of the hospital).It literally was a 1 minute walk away, and so no additional time ,stress or transport costs were required. The flats(in Ekinos Residence in Beylikduzu ) have security on the ground floor, friendly residents, and is safe and spotless.Our flat was fully furnished to a high standard and had all the necessary appliances like fridge freezer,washing machine, stove ,cooking pots & plates,cutlary etc.Also within a minute walk of the flat is a well stocked large grocery store called Migros for your fresh food grocery shopping.Both the Hospital and the flats are in a great location,and not in the middle of nowhere.Surrounding the complex are many good restaurants serving great food, and local shopping centers,.Right opposite the hospital is the Pharmacy for buying any extra medication required.We were helped by the Patient Adviser Aysan Candas (who gave us her mobile number in case we had any problems) with how and where to go find Turkcell(which is in a shopping centre 10minutes from Medicana) to buy a Turkish sim card and an internet dongle to set up our internet on our laptop.
OUR FIRST TREATMENT AT MEDICANA
I was scanned via ultrasound the same day I arrived at Medicana by a very warm and friendly English speaking gynecologist (called Mrs/DrAysun Guney Laçin, wife of Dr Selman Laçin).The next morning I met Head of Medicana's IVF Department Dr Selman Laçin and his colleague(called Dr Mehmet Koç), and began my protocal.The IVF staff, from the lovely friendly ladies on reception,to the wonderful encouraging and understanding nursers (my favourite nurse is Nurse Derya Sivri,who I think has the best smile in the world, and also Nurse Meral Sarıoğlu Dündar ,I had good laughs with these wonderful ladies) ,the Embryologist (called Arife Kunt ) and the encouraging Dr's are so patient,kind attentive and caring.I was monitored very closley by Dr Selman Laçin,he scanned me via ultrasound almost every day, as well me having bloods drawn every second day.The protocol was stress free and enjoyable.I underwent the IVF and lots of mature eggs were collected ,and many embrayos made it to Day 5 and were frozen via cryptopreservation.(I feel its important for me to add this :I had had a very stressful & unsuccessful IVF cycle in another country 11 months earlier, and with that,only a few eggs were collected and none made it to freezing.The fact that many mature eggs were collected,and many Day 5 Blasts were frozen for us, is testament to the skills of the Dr's at Medicana.
BEFORE AND AFTER TREATMENT
Both before and after egg collection and on the day of fresh embryo transfer, My Husband and I were given a large private room in the hospital ,complete with bathroom(toilet and shower),comfortable adjustable electric bed,wide screen TV, phone line for within the hospital,and had refreshments and lunch.r I was ready after a 2 month period.
OUR SECOND SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT AT MEDICANA 6 MONTHS LATER
Though the fresh cycle didn't work(I put it down to me making a decision to return to my stressful job in the UK too soon(2 days after treatment),and without adequate rest.I was advised to take a break for a minimum of 2 months and come back for a Frozen embryo transfer whenever I was ready. Six months later I returned to Medicana for my frozen embrayo transfer.It was a great expirence returning to the hospital and to all the familiar faces that had become friends at Medicana. On day four of my arrival, I had my FET transfer done by Mrs/Dr Laçin ,and as always she was patient,kind and attentive. As before,it was stress free and I felt fully supported,Again,I had my own private room before and after the procedure.This Frozen transfer was successful!! Also this time, I made sure I went home to the UK and rested adequately and I no longer work in a stressful job environment.
THE END AND THE BEGINNING
So after almost 3 long heart breaking years of trying to conceive with diffrent methods, just 2 visits to Medicana International Hopital in Istanbul Turkey in 6 months got my Husband and I finally pregnant! I am so grateful to Dr Selman Laçin and all his staff , and we are looking forward to a happy 8/9 months!. I highly recommend any couple who is struggling to conceive to go and have treatment at Medicana International Hospital In Istanbul.We got good results in terms of my egg collection, fertilization and freezing , and also the most important -got a successful pregnancy result.You are also guaranteed top quality attentive treatment and care both before and after your treatment.

Dear Mr Lacin
Thank you for contacting me. My little girl will be with us on 18th June with a c section as I had that with my little boy.
Our experience was amazing for the following reasons:
- Accomodation provided in an amazing complex and location with a park for my 2 years old to play. Other children so friendly with him, lending him their toys
- Taxi was really cheap from the accomodation to the hospital
- Hospital fee was really cheap comparing to the UK for the amount of support and medication provided. A full procedure in the UK is 5000 gbp + flights + hotel accomodation + IOM hospital fees
- A translator was always there with me at the hospital, which is really great
- The expertise of the doctors and the staffs was amazing
- After miscarring and failing attempts in the UK, finally your hospital gave me a little girl
- The difference for me was massive: high care comparing to the UK, regular blood test and scans (many more than the UK), 5 days embryo selection instead of three days in the UK so much better results, after freezing the embryos a true selection when in the UK, they implant what they defreeze so only 10 % success rate for the same procedure
I am French living on the Isle of Man so my English is not perfect. I would 100% recommend your hospital. However, I would recommend to take the 3 week option there so that it is also a holiday.
The bus from the hospital to Istanbul is direct and really cheap. We were able to have a little break there to visit during the 3 week period.
The medication after the surgery are provided for free by the IOM hospital. So there is no need to worry about extra costs.
I would recommend travelling with Turkish airlines.
I would like to thank you again for your support and good quality work.
