Thank you lord for showing the way
.... to Malpani Clinic
We are a couple from West Sussex, UK. We got married in 2006 and decided to have a baby straight away. We tried but nothing was happening. After a year we decided to visit our GP who advised us to undergo some tests to find out the problem if they were any.
After having a long discussion with the GP he advised us that he needs some tests to be done to find out if any problem exists. Firstly he requested my husband to provide them with a sample of his semen to conduct some test. The result showed that my husband semen sample had no sperms in other words it medical term it was called Azoospermia. We were shattered and heart broken and felt we never will be able to have a baby of our own.
We met our GP with our reports to see what other options are available for us to be parents. Our GP advised us that we need to meet a specialist with our report and he will fix an appointment with a specialist to see us. After a wait of 45 days we had an appointment with specialist. We were anxious and worried if the specialist says we may never have a baby of our own.
After discussion and examination by the specialist they explained us what is Azoospermia and what all options are available for us to have a baby of our own. They said first they need to have a surgery on my husband's testes to find out if there was any blockage and if there were any they would try to fix it if possible during surgery. They also advised us that they would also have a biopsy on my husband testes to find if they are producing any sperms.
We waited for an appointment for the surgery on NHS as it takes time but due to our luck we got an appointment for surgery within 2 weeks. The Surgery was done and then we had to wait for a couple of weeks for an appointment with the specialist to discuss the findings of the surgery. All this waiting was painstaking as well as we were getting more worried and anxious.
We had an appointment with the Specialist and they advised us that they have both good and bad news for us. The bad news was that there was a blockage, which was blocking the flow of sperms, and they were not able to fix it during the surgery. The good news was that my husband testes was producing sperms so we could have our own baby through IVF (ICSI) treatment.
We enquired whether we could do the IVF treatment through NHS in UK but due to age factor we had to wait for 5 years to do the IVF treatment with NHS. We enquired with private clinic the cost was too high and success rate was very low.
Then we started doing our research on the net to find out different infertility clinic in India for the treatment. We short listed some clinic but still were worried, as we were not aware much about IVF treatment and how it functions in India.
We browsed through the website of the short listed clinic and found Malpani clinic website more informative, detailed and organized and we got all the information required for our treatment that is when we decided to do our treatment with Malpani infertility clinic.
We sent an email to Dr. Anirudh Malpani with all our details, copy of Semen Sample Analysis Report and the Biopsy report. Within 6 hours we received a reply from Dr. Malpani advising us about the treatment, Cost, and all requested information. We are quiet impressed with the professionalism and prompt response.
Then we planned our trip to Mumbai and met Dr Anirudh Malpani. After meeting Dr Anirudh Malpani whatever little doubts we had with regards to treatment and expertise had disappeared. We found Dr Anirudh Malpani friendlier, and his relationship with his patients is more of a human than a doctor -patient relationship. We at last were happy that we made a right decision and felt we are in safe hands.
Then we started our IVF cycle and all went as planned eggs were collected and embryos were transferred. Dr Anirudh Malpani advised me to have a pregnancy test after 2 weeks. We waited for 2weeks and when we received the pregnancy report we were shattered as it was negative. Dr Malpani called me and he spoke to me, consoled and advised me which made me feel better.
We met Dr Anirudh Malpani before we went back to UK and informed him that we will be going through another IVF cycle and we will do the treatment through Malpani Clinic as we were happy with the treatment and were confident the second time will be a success because Dr Anirudh Malpani always said to us " unless you try you don't get".
We did our second IVF treatment in October 2008 and when my wife did her pregnancy test it was positive. We were so happy there was no limit for our happiness.
On 31/07/2009 my wife delivered a healthy baby girl.
We thank you Dr Anirudh and Anjali Malpani without your help this would not have been possible. We pray to God to give you both good health to carry on this good work by putting back smile on childless couple.
I also like to thank all the staff at the clinic that helped us during our treatment. They were very helpful and supportive. Thank you all and God Bless.
