IVF? how many treatments do you need to have? Why don't you ask the people there?

It not IVF. It is Chinese medicine treatment .
My first visit treatment : blood test and urine test (both woman and man), ultrasound (woman), general health consultation. Woman (my wife) is also asked to check temperature every morning. They can sell you a body basal termometer if you dont have one and give you a small notebook to register the temperature. You must visit the clinic every week.
The costs of the first visit is: blood+urine test woman - 420RM, blood +urine test man: 400; ultrasound 50RM (you pay only for 7 UGS, next ones are free), termometer 60RM, medicines 150RM for each/week. This time we paid together 1230RM. Next weeks we will pay 350/week which is 300RM for medicines plus 50 for ultrasound.


I realy need to know before continue. It to costly for me.

Do you feel any improvement in your overall health? I think you can give this a few tries. If you feel that there is no improvement, then you can stop it.
As far as i know, traditional chinese medicine takes some time to show the effect. You need to have some patient to see the results.

If the medication is only for overall well-being instead of pinpoint to a specific problem, i think it's kind of expensive for RM350/week.

Hallo,
I am the patient of Golden Gate Fertility Centre (GGFC). Me and my husband have been taking medicines since mid May 2011 and this week I found I GOT PREGNANT. It was my 5th cycle.
I can recommend dr Khoo to everybody especially those who want to go for IVF. Definatelly before trying any invasive drugs, try chineese medicine. Me and my husband were trying to conceive for 1 year before we went to dr Khoo. It seems not very long however, I am in a very advanced age for pregnancy and my husband had very bad sperm results. Western doctors immediatelly recommended ICSI. I also thought this is the only chance for us and even I really didnt like the idea of IVF I thought we have no other solutions. I started to look for acupuncture to increase my chances of IVF. This is how I contected dr Khoo. He convinced us it is worth to try and we postpone IVF. And it took us 5 cycles to conceive! If I think how close we were to do IVF I'm really mad with all this "western medicine".
Of course my prenancy is very, very early, however already confirmed it happened.
I want to share this with everybody, because 6 months ago I was also looking for information about GGFC, but could not find much. Dr Khoo and Dr Lai have many, many patiens, but unfortunatelly they dont share their experience on forums. Doctor claims he has 70% success rate (within 7 months of treatment) and usually people get pregnant on 5th or 6th month.

I hope I helped,
Cheers,

BTW: This was my first contact with TCM. Im not Malaysian, Im European and unfortunatelly in my country TCM is not populat at all.

Hi stevenys,
Im not sure if you still read this forum. I'm just curious, were you successful with Golden Gate Fertility Centre in Puchong? If yes or not can you please share after how many months?

Me and my husband will soon start trying for baby #2.

Cheers,
Filos
