An Introduction to How My IVF Alternative Began

Dear Fertility Warriors,

As one of the 9.3 million “baby challenged” women in the world, not only have I experienced the emotional stress from the inability to conceive, but the huge out of pocket cost for In vitro fertilization has only made it worse. We had three options:

  1. Get a loan for the IVF costs (get deeper in debt).
  2. Give up on having a child.
  3. Search for alternative IVF options.

My husband and I are fighters and achievers – we were determined to find a better way. We were looking for IVF alternatives to our fertility situation. Not only were we disappointed with our IVF doctor in Atlanta, GA where we live; the IVF cost of IVF treatment was another major “red light”. However, when we started our research on IVF, we were amazed at what we began to uncover.  People of all ages and conditions are traveling the world to get quality IVF treatment for MUCH less and with a greater success.  In addition, there are great options such as traveling abroad for IVF vacations.

Together we focused our IVF treatment research on my home country – the Czech Republic. To our surprise we found that there are several private IVF clinics treating foreign patients for IVF, Donor Egg IVF and Donor Embryos for less. Already, we began to feel like we had options with In vitro fertilization – already we were closer to achieving our dream of starting a family.

We are thrilled to share with you a program we developed to make getting pregnant with IVF, during a short IVF vacation, an affordable, pleasant, and fun in vitro fertilization experience.

How does shopping, sightseeing, spa treatments, massages, history and quality time alone, or with your close friends or family sound? Most of our patients tell us that being away from their stressful jobs, cell phones that are constantly going off and rushing through heavy traffic to and from work; and instead they treated themselves to massages, explored a new country and tried new foods made them more relaxed and the entire trip was a very pleasant break.

I believe that the decision to start a family with IVF should not be made more stressful by insurance companies and some fertility clinics dictating what we can and cannot do when it comes to IVF treatment. As a result, my husband and I have decided to form My IVF Alternative to help other couples learn more about alternative IVF options, learn from our personal experience and to offer in vitro fertilization with no waiting time and for less than couples could at their local fertility clinics. All that with a great personal attention and high medical standards.

IVF Treatment Program in the Czech Republic

Our IVF Treatment Program is an affordable and pleasant experience for In vitro fertilization.  Our IVF treatment and IVF vacation packages are short itineraries:

  • Non donor IVF: 8 – 14 days
  • Donor egg IVF: 7 days or less
  • Donor embryos: 3 days or less
  • Frozen embryo transfer: 3 days or less

In addition to a world class medical care you will receive when undergoing your IVF treatment, you share a relaxing vacation that offers sightseeing and spa treatments, and an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful, historic cities of the Czech Republic and other nearby countries, such as Austria, Hungary, Germany, Poland and more.

Passport & Health Insurance Card

You will need a valid passport to enter the Czech Republic and then re-enter your country.  Citizens of the USA, Canada, Australia and European Union do not need a visa for a stay up to 90 days. Permanent residents with passports from other countries should visit Czech Embassy’s website and verify if they need a visa to enter the country. We can assist you in applying for the the necessary visa to enter the Czech Republic.

The latest Czech legislation also mandates that all foreigners entering the country must have a proof of health insurance for emrgency situations (more details provided in our IVF Traveler’s guide or you can visit your local Czech Embassy website). A current health insurance card may be sufficient. If you do not have health insurance coverage, you can obtain a coverage card from a travel site where you purchase your airfare. We have found a great insurance covering more than just medical but also lost baggage, cancelled flights, damages to others and more. You will get all the details in our IVF vacations and information travel guide.

Air Travel

To help lower the total cost of your IVF treatment, we suggest traveling via these airports:

Brno (BRQ) 15 minutes from the clinic
Prague (PRG) 2 hours from Brno
Bratislava (BTS) 1.5 hours from Brno
Vienna (VIE) 2 hours from Brno

If possible, we recommend couples to fly directly to Brno, as it is the most comfortable way to travel. If you are flying into one of the major airports (PRG, VIE, BTS) we can either guide you to Brno via safe public transportation (bus/train) or arrange for a personal driver to pick you up at the airport and take you to your hotel in Brno.

Travelling to Europe is seasonal; therefore, airfare varies but we always look for the best deals for our patients. More info on airfare can be found in our extensive IVF travel guide.

Receiving IVF abroad not only offers huge cost savings on both the procedures and medications, but provides an exciting travel experience for the couple to enjoy.  IVF vacations offer the perfect way to keep your mind off the treatment by getting to travel and enjoy the surrounding area.

We hope you find this alternative IVF wbsite helpful, educational and together we can make our dreams come true.

Best Wishes,

Magdalena
