How much does IVF cost in Taiwan? (Part 2 – Frozen Embryo Transfer)

We were asked to come back on the 11th day of my period during our FET but I also had to take Estrade (Estradiol Valerate) since Day 3 and I brought those with me back to the Philippines from my egg retrieval cycle. It was pretty straightforward and they will give you a chart showing how many you should take per day starting Day 3. Continue reading “How much does IVF cost in Taiwan?

My Second FET Experience

I was asked to come to the hospital at 8AM on the day of my scheduled frozen embryo transfer. I wasn’t required to do any fasting since they will not be administering anesthesia for the transfer so that’s a relief. I paid for the procedure, had my ultrasound done, and I was told that my uterine lining was good. I noticed on the screen that it was 0.98mm, which is great since it had to be greater than 0.8mm for best results. I then had my injections, Crinone gel, other meds and was told I had to wait 30 minutes before having my blood test. After 30 minutes, I had my blood drawn and I waited for my turn. We must have been waiting around an hour before I was finally called. I was led to a room where I remember getting a massage during my very first FET but noticed that some of the tools for the FET were in that room. I think to myself, “Darn, I should’ve brought my phone huhu.”  Continue reading “My Second FET Experience”

Things to consider before undergoing IVF in Taiwan

It has been almost a month since our baby Hiro celebrated his 1st year birthday. He is now officially a toddler and can now express his likes and dislikes. I thought it would be a hard 1st year for us especially with us not having a “yaya.” He is relatively healthy (except for some bouts of diarrhea) and is usually happy. He eats well and … Continue reading Things to consider before undergoing IVF in Taiwan

Why I had my IVF in Taiwan and not in the Philippines

It’s always a hard thing to leave our comfort zone. At least that’s what I felt when we decided to do our IVF in Taiwan. It was especially hard since my OB-Gyne here in Manila is just the nicest, sweetest person. She also does IVF in St. Lukes QC or BGC. The cost is not that much different if you compare having it done in Manila or in Taiwan. Actually, it’s a lot cheaper in Taiwan. But taking into consideration the cost of staying at a hotel/airbnb, airfare and food, It would say it’s about the same.

IVF in Taiwan or Philippines?

It was 7 and a half years ago when we first said our I dos. We were greeted with warm smiles, congratulations and of course exuberant wishes of having babies. I thought we would immediately have one after a year or two, but after 7 years, we’re still waiting. Continue reading “IVF in Taiwan or Philippines?”
