Don't go there
Hello all! I am here to warn you. Warn you against a really troubled experience. I woud not want you to go through any of it. So I have cancer. I can't be pregnant. So I am looking into surrogacy. For that I was visiting many forums. I emailed many clinics. All of them responded well. But there was this one named Lotus. They only replied with a pdf explaining they do a great job. I asked some questions. I wanted to know about the packages. I wanted to know about the treatment. I wanted to know about my odds. After waiting 7 days, they replied with a 'yes'. All those questions can't have the answer 'yes', can they? Feeling frustrated.

Thank you for sharing your experience. Sorry to know that it was an unpleasant one. But I am glad you did not invest initial money there. A friend of mine contacted them. Initially, they replied in a good manner. But then they asked for an initial investment. My friend paid the money. When they received it, they stopped replying. They did not even acknowledge that they have received the money. My friend is depressed now. She has been a victim of infertility for 4 years. She was desperate to have kids. But then this happened. I would suggest that you find other clinics in Europe. There is a very good one there.

Thank you for alerting us about the issue. It seems some clinics just don't want to do their work. It's a turn off when organizations don't reply appropriately. I've heard about this problem about Lotus from many others as well. Let's hope they get their priorities in order soon. Meanwhile, I'd suggest not losing hope and rather opting for another clinic that's well mannered. There are many better ones in Ukraine itself. Wishing you all the best. I'm sure you'll find better ones. Good luck!

hello Marlen! Don't lose hope. you live in a modern world. there is nothing that can't be cured. all you have to do is stay strong. even if you are infertile, don't be sad and disappointed. Everything is curable. nowadays there are many alternatives. I can share my story with you. It might be of help. I am infertile and I tried everything but nothing worked for me. finally, I made up my mind for surrogacy. but the real challenge was finding an appropriate clinic. this was very difficult. I came across many clinics that were a real waste of time. one of them was the same lotus clinic. They really wasted my time and disappointed me. I hope the best for you. Just don't lose hope and stay strong.

Hi, dear! It's sad to know that you are suffering from cancer pain. It must have been hard for you to go through this. But never give up. Keep your hopes high. Things will get fine soon. What you have to do is to stay strong. And yes I agree with you. Lotus is a very pathetic clinic. Thinking about this clinic would be just a wastage of time. They are very irresponsible Their behavior with their patients is rude. They do not reply to anyone's query. They waste one's time and money. Many people are complaining about them. I don't know why they are treating their clients like this. It's so annoying for anyone to bear this all. I think we should stay away from such clinics. I hope you find the best clinic for yourself soon. Best wishes to you.

Hey. Sorry for what you have faced. You are right, they are scammers. I have heard a lot about their irresponsible behaviour towards clients. I would love to share my story. I hope it would be helpful to you. I had the uterine polyps disease. I went for treatment too but nothing could help. IVF and IUI were really a disaster for me. They failed due to poor egg quality I decided to go for the unnatural process. I thought about IVF but it was impossible in my condition to be successful. I made to go for surrogacy. I went for it to a clinic in Europe. Now I have a baby. I am so blessed to have him.

Hi there! Hope you are doing well. Thanks for sharing your sad experience. I feel really sorry about your case. I am infertile too. I almost lost hope. Then My doctors suggested for surrogacy. I was glad to know that my infertility was curable. I tried to contact A****s in Ukraine. I mailed them. But they didn't responded. I continuously tried them but all in vain. I was very depressed. They didn't care about patients. I think they are scam. We should be careful about chosing a clinic. Now I am looking for surrogacy at another clinic there. Hope it ends well

Hi, How are you? I hope you feeling better now. I am really sad for you. We can't change our fate. You have to stay calm. Have your treatment. Your health is more important. Concentrate on your health. I am not shocked to know about Lotus. They do the same with everyone. I also contacted Lotus for my treatment. I mailed them many times. They just ignore our emails. They never pick the calls as well. This is a very unprofessional attitude of a clinic. We should stay away from them. Hope for the best. Everything will be alright. Good wishes. Stay strong

Hello Marlen, I hope you are fine. It's sad to hear that you also caught in the net of such a bad clinic. I also had this bad experience. But the clinic was different. I am infertile. A friend of mine suggested me of surrogacy treatment. I decided to go to Adonis clinic for treatment. But when I visited this clinic. I got frustrated. They had applied so many charges on me without any reason. I didn’t even complete my treatment and change the clinic. Which was a very good decision. The other clinic was so good. The doctors are so good. They found the surrogate for me within a week. So all the fingers are not same in size. So don’t worry about the clinic. You will find the better one.

Hi there. How are you doing? I hope you are doing fine. We are doing good. I read your post. I totally agree. Surrogacy is a wonderful option. It is a blessing in disguise for infertile couples. The clinic you must be talking about is BioTex Com in Kiev, Ukraine. Yes, It is a wonderful clinic for infertility solutions. I was very satisfied with their services. I would suggest it to anyone who wants high-quality services at affordable prices. Lots of love. Take care. God bless.

Oh, that's pretty bad. I am sorry to hear about your experience. There are these clinics who have been troubling people a lot. I had a bad experience with Adonis clinic a few months ago. It was such a bad experience. I never tried to contact them ever. They did not bother to reply to my emails. They replied to me once with a computer-generated email. That seemed so unprofessional to me. I was very annoyed by their behavior. So I decided to search for another clinic. My husband and I were soon able to find a good clinic. We had our treatment from there. I underwent IVF to have my baby. It was quite painful. But we managed to do every possible thing to have a baby.

Hey, hope you are doing well. I am so sorry to hear about your experience. Infertility is hard to deal with, And when we try to fight with it, such clinics shatter us. I have had the same experience few months earlier. But i am glad, i found a reliable clinic soon after it. Its biotexcom clinic in ukraine. I am visiting it for my surrogacy. clinic has high success rate. the environment is so relaxing. The doctors are so well experienced there.the staff is so humble and kind. They keep relaxing me at every visit. And the best thing is the procedures are so reliable and reasonable. This clinic is best all in all. I am soon going to start my surrogacy here. This is the most demanded clinic by public these days. So the clinic is going to organize an event soon. All the doctors along with head is going to visit. You should visit them on event. And trust me, you'll regret why you didn't contact them Before. Do try once. I am sure you are gonna get your treatment here. Best of luck!

Oh, this is sad. I am sorry to hear about your experience. I know it must have annoyed you so much. But cheer up. Things do not end here. We have so many clinics in Ukraine that provide good customer care and services. Along with the Lotus clinic, Adonis clinic is also not reliable. I believe that everything happens for a good reason. It's good that you got to know about their carelessness on time. You should take this a lesson for yourself. Be very wise in the future when you are choosing a clinic. Do not waste your time in remembering what happened. Take your past and learn from it. I am sure you'll be able to find a good clinic very soon. Wishing a lot of happiness for you.

Hey, hope you are doing well. I am so sorry to hear about you. you have been through so much. such clinics are trash. They should be banned. I have a suggestion for you. I am currently visiting Biotexcom clinic for my surrogacy. It is in ukraine. And t is the best clinic so far. they have the higher success rate. they have the best and most humble staff. They have the most experienced and professional doctors. Plus the procedures they are offering are so affordable. I am these days discussing the legal formalities and rules for it. And the best part is they have a proper legal procedure to start the procedure. I am so happy with the clinic. One more thing, they provide us Surrogates and egg donors as well. So you must contact this clinic. In fact this clinic is going to arrange an event soon. For your convenience you should visit that event. All the doctors along with Head Anastasia is going to visit that event. You have a golden chance to visit them there. And it will be easy for you to trust them completely then. You will never regret this visit i am sure.

Hey, Marlen, I hope you're well. I can completely relate to you. It is bizarre to see clinics behave in this matter. had a very similar experience. I also got devastated! I emailed this clinic for the details of the surrogacy process. They for a month didn't even reply! When they did reply it was a forward email. In the email, they asked me to give them all of my private information. They didn't even answer my questions properly. I stayed calm and messaged them again. I asked them to first answer my questions and then I'll provide them with all the details. Obviously, as someone who was still making a decision, I wasn't sure if I wanted to opt for them or not. The end-line was always for me to send them the details. So I really stopped emailing them.

I hope all is good at your side. I’m so shocked to know about the terrible responses from a clinic. I was looking for a good surrogacy clinic. To get my infertility to be treated by them. So I started searching and found this clinic named Lotus. I assumed that as a good clinic at first. But they just replied to me once. I had other doubts and questions too in my mind. Which they easily ignored. They didn’t bother me. They think that we are just wasting their time. This was such a bad behavior. Not Ethically approved. I would say never go for that clinic. They should improve their services and staff.

HELLO! thanks for updating us. I also heard about these scammers. My sister had a bad experience with lotus. She is infertile so she decided for her IVF. she emailed lotus for her treatment at their clinic. They did not response her. She called them but they do not receive her calls. It was just like she is banging with the walls. It was clear that they were not interested in her. They only dodge the people for their money. Then my sister decides to leave to contact them. She found another best clinic. They treat her well and her IVF got to succeed. Now she is the mother of a baby. There is a need to be aware of such type of clinics. We will have nothing but the loss by these clinics. It is only the scam. So please be attentive. GOOD LUCK!

Hi Marrie! How are you doing? I am so sorry for your troubles. Infertility is a nightmare. But some clinics also adds to its horribly. The clinic you've mentioned lotus is one of the worse clinics. They really don't even bother our emails. I also tried to contact them and after emailing them a lot and waited for their reply long. They didn't reply. I was in the very bad stage of my life. I had fetal abnormalities due to which I was unable to conceive naturally. I tried to contact them because I want IVF treatment. All my hopes vanished away. I wish no one could ever have that bad experience. Luckily I am a mother now from other clinic's treatment. But everyone be careful before consulting or considering any clinic. Good luck.

Hey, there dear. How are you doing? I hope its all great. I am really sorry to hear about your issue. I know the pain. I have been there myself. I had a hysterectomy and got infertile. I wish things were easy. Choosing a good clinic is really important. I myself. Lotus is very famous for its bad reputation. I wish no one falls for them. I wish you all to be careful. Please take care of yourselves. Lots of love and support. I hope you get whatever you want.

I'm so sorry that you faced this. No doubt infertility is the worst experience. Many people face infertility due to some reason e.g cancer, Heart disease, PCOS and other. But now It also has some treatments. IVF and surrogacy are the best treatment for infertility. I'm also an infertile due to heart disease. I cannot conceive naturally. Then i tried to contact to Lotus for treatment. I send them a lot of emails. But they did not reply me. I was very depressed about their unprofessional behaviour. Later I moved to another clinic for surrogacy. I have only that option to become a mother. Now I'm a mother of a cute baby boy. I suggest you move to another clinic. That will be the good option for you.

Dear, you are absolutely right. All these questions answers should not be yes. This shows their attitude towards its clients. Such a nonserious attitude. I have also read many bad reviews about this lotus clinic. Really they are playing with peoples attitude. I don't understand their worst attitude towards different people. Dear don't get frustrated. There is a good clinic in Europe. You should visit them. Trust me they will deal you in the best way. It will be the best option for you. Remember difficulties in your journey makes your destination beautiful. Wish you best of luck for that. Baby dust to you

I have already heard this complaint about them. This is the most common issue about the Lotus clinic. I can understand it sounds odd. But I think you should look for some better option. Such clinics are fake and they are just earning money in this field. I have seen many couples having worse experience there. I would also never suggest you go there. Such procedures are a bit complex so never give into the unskilled hand. Through such forums, people would get aware of them and never be their victim.

Hey there! My sister also had a bad experienced with lotus clinic. She has facing infertility issue for so long. She fed up with TTC with no luck and looking forward to surrogacy. She was heard about good reviews about the clinic. So she was decided to contact lotus. She emailed them her medical reports and asked them the clinic treatment procedure and policies. She emailed them 7 times. But the clinic show unethical behaviour. They didn't give any response to her. She waited for 2 months but all in vain. She was very disappointed by the behaviour of the clinic. I hope she will find a better clinic. Stay blessed.

Oh no, honey. You, too? This is awful! I can't believe it. I had the same exact experience with Lotus Clinic. It was such a terrible time. It was honestly nothing less than a nightmare. I hated being there. It was the toughest time of my life. I thought that all treatments are like that! I didn't know assisted conception was anything better. I'm just happy I saw the light. Moved to another clinic. They helped me out. I can't thank them enough. It was like hell versus heaven!

I know this is frustrating for you. I feel so sorry for you that you are still hoping for Adonis to respond to you. You need to go there. They might not respond to you like this. And if that doesn't work then you should forget them. There is plenty of good clinics. And especially know how to work like real professionals.

Well, I have news for you. The same thing happened to me. I contacted two clinics. One of them was Adonis. This is the clinic which didn't bother replying. 4 weeks guys. It has been this much time. Still no reply. I think they are not interested in getting clients now.

Hello Marlen dear! How are you doing now? Don't be stressed out. It is not good for your health. I can understand your anger at the Lotus clinic. I had gone through same. That clinic just runs their business. When I was in the hour of need they didn't even bother to reply to me. I hope you'll find the better clinic. You did right by sharing this with everyone. Everyone be careful while choosing the clinic.

Dear, I can understand your situation. It's normal to get frustrated by their response. I have also read many bad reviews about Adonis clinic. They are playing with people emotions. There is a good clinic in Europe. Visit them. This will be the best option for you. Wish you best of luck for that. My best wishes are with you

I am really sorry to read about your awful experience. I can understand how hurtful it can be to get that kind of response. However, dont lose hope! I am sure things will get better. Just make sure to visit the right clinic for the next time. It is very important to visit the right doctor for the process. More the clinic is experienced more are the chances of success. Also always look at the rate of success of the clinic as well. These two things matter a lot. Other than this I would suggest that you should look into the clinic's services and the packages they offer. These things tell a lot about the clinic and whether their focus is on money or on the treatment. Good luck to you. I hope things go well. If you want any help let me know. Sending baby dust your way.

Hello, Marlen. How are you? I hope you're alright. This is so wrong! How could they do this to you, too? I had a terrible experience with a clinic, as well. That experience was the reason I had such a wretched TTC journey. I'm just glad I managed to get out of there, in time. You deserve better, as well! Don't give up, hon.

I'm so sorry that you had an unpleasant experience. It's really common, though. This is nice of you to share your experience. Others can manage to avoid it. It's really important to do your research before you choose to go to a fertility clinic. I hope things get better for you and you find a good clinic. Good luck to you!

It seems to me that you should pay attention to other clinics. Since such an attitude towards patients is not acceptable. I recommend you choose Biotexcom as an option. This clinic is located in Ukraine, in Kiev. They have three packages, at different prices. In addition, they have an option - Skype calls. You can call their manager via Skype. I am sure they will help you.
