Unpleasant experience with a clinic
Hey, everyone, I hope you all are doing good. I thought I would write a post for all those who are planning to go for surrogacy. I have mentioned in my previous posts the importance of research for surrogacy. There are various reasons for that, however, the choice of clinic really matters. When I decided to opt for surrogacy I was unsure about the clinic. I did my limited research and emailed various clinics. I was highly interested in visiting Ukraine because the clinics over there are comparatively inexpensive. So I emailed Lotus clinic and clearly mentioned that it was a matter of urgency. This was so because I was already heartbroken after my last failed IVF. Anyways, I waited and waited during this wait contacted another clinic within the same city. They quickly replied to me with the appropriate answer. In the emails, I had asked about the program options and the details about it. Lotus when finally did reply after a month didn't even answer my question instead asked for my medical certificates. I was so disappointed with their unprofessional behavior. It seemed like that they were using a robot to answer the emails as well.

Hi Hannah! Thanks for sharing you experience regarding clinics in Ukraine. I feel like people should share more about their clinics since mostly all infertile people have to resort to international clinics for their procedure. I also went for surrogacy from Ukraine and my clinic was named biotexcom. I have nothing but good things to say about that clinic. No only were they quick to respond but I am now mother of a baby girl and I owe it all to that clinic. I wish people get to know about them more since they are the best.

surrogacy is the most common method or way of having a child. i was also very stressed during my first marriage as i had many complications while getting pregnant. I conceived for three times but always resulted in miscarriage. I'm 43 years old now. Now i am married again and me and my husband are thinking of having of having a baby. We are looking for a good clinic to support us and guide us through the whole process. BioTexCom is a good clinic with very good reputation. MAy be you can have a look at it. We researched about a number of clinics over the web and found many good clinics as well. You should also do research about surrogacy related clinics as well over the web and look for the best clinic. Surrogacy is the safe and the most good method of having a baby for women like us. Wish you a very good luck.

I am sorry for what all happened with you. But to be frank. In back few days the women I have interacted with have told me more false things about this Lotus clinic. I was in complete shock. And you are not a single person. Most of the women over the forum have found complaining that they are still waiting for their reply and they were not switching to any other because they were so naive and they were afraid to proceed. This is all that they know. But thankfully there does exist the clinics that are providing best procedures and results. At times I used to say to people that you should look into their websites they would speak the real truth. But I am afraid now. Because it is to say that. They have many false pieces of information over there clinics official website. Everyone should be very careful about all such stuff.

What happened to you is completely wrong. Those guys are wrong. They didn't do well in this regard. I am so much sad after reading this. My other friend also had this issue. I think these people are not trustworthy. We should just avoid them.

Hi there, Hope you are doing well. Sorry to hear about your lose. But i am glad you are thinking about surrogacy. Surrogacy works like magic for infertile couples. We are in the same boat. My experience with Lotus clinic is also very bad. I am an infertile. I heard many positive reviews about Lotus clinic. So my husband and i decided to contact Lotus clinic for surrogacy. we are from Japan. that's why we contacted Lotus clinic via email to get info. First i waited for 2 days but didn't get a reply. Then i emailed them again and mentioned the situation but they didn't reply me back after sending so many emails. I tried to contact them via phone but they did not answer the phone. We are very disappointed with their communication services. It seems they are not interested in giving any info regarding treatment. What kind of behavior is that. Please suggest us a good clinic for the surrogacy treatment?

I'm extremely sorry to hear about your loss, dear. It's good that you've shared your experience here. People get very confused in making a choice of which clinic to go to. I'm sure this post would help a lot of people. Anyway, I'm glad you found a good clinic in time. I hope you start the process soon. Good luck!

Hey, @sidneywhite it is extremely sad that you are going through a very similar situation as well. I had my surrogacy procedure done a year ago and I was so disappointed at their behavior. However, it is upsetting that they haven't changed. There are, however, a lot of other good clinics that you can search about. People on this thread have mentioned the clinic I visited for my procedure. My experience with them was amazing and would suggest that you contact them. When you are going through infertility you should be treated well however, their behavior was just upsetting. Good luck to you I hope your procedure goes well.

This is just sad. I think clinics like these should just stop existing. What's the point of it when you can't help your customers? Giving them a timely and appropriate response is what brings them to you. I think it's great that you contacted others as well. Keeping your options open is your best bet. It's great that you ended up finding the right one. Surrogacy is a great procedure. Where did you end up going then? I'd love to know. Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I'm sure it'll help many who are going through the search of the right clinic. Lotus is definitely a no now.

I don't understand why I am coming across so many posts about Lotus every day? I often thought this until I met my friend. She is 44 now. She has been a TTC for last 10 years. The efforts were going on until she found that she cannot conceive any more. It was a big shock. It took her days to come out of the stress. She decided to try for some assisted procedure. Her next concern was finding the appropriate clinic. She searched a lot. Finally she found the Lotus clinic. She didn't waste any time. As soon as she found out about the clinic she approached it. She provided all the details well in time. They kept responding. She arranged for the required finances and then she flew to the clinic. To her dismay the clinic was a disappointment. As she stepped into the clinic she came across people who cannot be relied. They by no way are qualified professionals. They were harsh, and ruthless. They had no sympathy. A single test was repeated so many times stating that the results were not satisfactory. Her visit was a total waste of time and money. I would suggest all those searching for the clinic to stay away from the clinic if they really want to have a successful treatment.

You did get a reply. Ask me, I am still in the waiting queue. This is so irresponsible attitude. They seem to play with our feelings. Totally unbelievable approach. I would say to everybody to make a right choice. Don't get appealed to their way of communication. They have got no appropriate answers to our queries.

Surrogacy is not acceptable in many parts. The reasons are both social and religious. In religiosly conservative countries it is unimaginable to think of another woman carrying your baby. As far as the social aspects are concerned it is thought to createlegal prolems after the baby is born. Some crticise it for the mentl stress and trauma faced by the surrogate. It is also criticised for putting someone else's life in danger.

This is really sad. I know you must have felt like bad. This is a very wrong attitude opted by them. We all need to speak against them. I have been seeing so much bad stuff about Lotus clinic lately. They have earned a very bad reputation for themselves. I don't understand why they are doing all this. They should treat their patients very professionally. It is very unethical to leave patients on wait for so long. And then they don't even reply properly if they even reply. Something needs to be done about this. We need to make people aware of their carelessness. So that people can save their time and money. Thanks for sharing your post here. I'll make sure I gather all this information. And then I'll make a post telling people about these clinics.

This is incredible. I am sorry to hear about all this. You must have dealt with so much stress. These clinics are losing their patients. But that's not something that matters. What matters the most is that they are making a fool of people. This is very wrong. They should stop doing this. Otherwise, they'll have to suffer a lot. Why don't they realize? People are so stressed. They are in a depression. They go to these clinics with so much hope. And then they get this as a result. Their hopes faint. They feel like not trusting any other clinic then. It creates so many problems. I feel really bad about all this.

That is really nice of you to post this. It is great to know that other people are also noticing this thing. I have come to know about several people who feel ditched after contacting this clinic. They say that this clinic is very unprofessional in its dealing. No one is happy with their dealings. I think we need to make people aware of clinics like Lotus and Adonis. This is the only way how people can stop referring to them. Otherwise, many of them will waste their time there. And they won't get any results. Also, we should be very careful while choosing a good clinic for this purpose. Internet reviews and people's experiences should be seen. A visit once must be done to the chosen clinic. These things should be taken care of.

Hey. I am so sorry for you. I too had no good experience with this clinic. I have faced infertility for 10 years. I heard some good experience probably from spammers about the clinic. I took appointment from the clinic. They responded to me after two months. Then they reserved an appointment there. I wanted to go for surrogacy. I went there and I was shocked. Everything was opposite as they described. I was disappointed a lot. later I came to know about a clinic in Europe. So I went there and they were amazingly affordable. Now I have a baby. I am so happy I chose a right place.

You are right. Such clinics should be taken down. I have a friend who has confronted infertility for a long time. She faced it for 7 years. Later she wanted to have a baby through surrogacy. She went to clinic adonis. She asked for the appointment with them through Email. They replied so late. She went there and she was stunned. Everything was not as they depicted. Well her husband found out about the clinic in Europe. So She went there and they were affordable for them. They have a baby girl of 9 months now. I am so glad I picked an ideal place. It was a great experience with Europe's clinic.

Things will be better. Talking about lotus. I have had a similar experience. I was searching for a clinic for my friend. I got the exact similar result as you. I hope these scammers stop. I wish everyone good luck. I hope things get better. Take care. Love and support to you.

Me and my husband are also thinking to go for surrogacy. But just like you we still haven't received any reply from lotus clinic in Ukraine.

Hannah, I have heard so much negative about the various clinics. The one you have mentioned is one of them. I must say that there are lots of clinics in that region that provide the surrogacy and other fertility treatments. And I have found one, I would suggest you research and visit at least one time before setting up for an appointment. Websites and youtube channels of the respected clinic can be utilized for Q/A because there are webinars arranged especially for Q/A.

Hi Hannah. I hope you are doing good. I'm sorry that you had a bad experience with this clinic. It's so disappointing. They do this with everyone. I too think they have a bot that answers the emails. That is so careless. I mean we are here literally emailing them with hope but what do we get? A bot replying to us who don't even know what it is doing. Firstly, they don't reply at all. Considering yourself lucky that they even replied to you. I heard complaints from so many people who still haven't gotten one yet. It is extremely unprofessional. It shows how much they really care about the people who could be their future clients.

Hey Hannah, thank you for this post. I think you made a great decision by moving forward. There is no point in waiting for someone to reply when they are not even interested. When you are travelling from abroad good communication matters a lot. I personally want to have that one to one relation. However, if they are not providing that then there is no point in waiting. Its great that you decided to spread awareness regarding this. We all need to be very careful. When I was looking for clinics for my treatment. I was told to be well-researched. I think that is so important as you have mentioned in your post as well. For surrogacy you need to know everything! A lot of people take steps in hurry and excitement but honestly don't do that. I made a decision after a lot of research and I am glad I did that. My surrogacy experience is going great now.

Oh! sad to learn about your experience. These clinics are just looting people. Adonis and Lotus clinics are totally nonprofessional in their fields. Your bad experience filled my heart with grief. My friend also experienced such inconveniences. I must say that one should consult the doctor before selecting any clinic. Well, don't lose hope and keep on trying!

Hi there. I am so sorry you had such a bad experience. This truly does seem so unprofessional. Infertility should not be taken as a joke. I do not know why people treat it so lightly. There are so many of these clinics nowadays. This has made it difficult to know which one is real and which one is a sham. This is not the end for you. It is just a bump on the way to having your dream. Do not lose hope. You should continue with your journey. I am hopeful you will get to hold your own baby very soon. You can ask around about other clinics. It would be beneficial if you ask those in your circle or your doctor to refer a good clinic to you. I have a friend who was referred to a very good clinic in Ukraine. She had an amazing surrogacy journey, which ended with her holding her own baby girl. Look at this as a positive thing. It would have been more hectic for you, had you found out about their unprofessionalism after your journey had started. .

Sorry that you had to go through such an unpleasant experience. It must have left you angry. But I am glad that you posted this. Everyone should know what the clinics do. They should know how unprofessional they are. But do not stress yourself much. There is another clinic in Europe too. You should visit that.

Hi there. I am so sorry to hear that you had this experience. I had a similar experience with another clinic named Adonis. Its a very reputed clinic. After 8 years of failed attempts at conception it was finally confirmed that i am infertile. it was very bad time. I had the support of my family and husband. So i opted for surrogacy. And when contacting this clinic had no reply at all. i was so frustrated. i mean i wanted the best but they are really not best if they cant show professionalism. So disappointed in them. they not only not responded to my mails but their contact no was also inaccessible. Misguiding others...!!!

Hey. It saddens me to hear this. Infertility is itself painful enough. And then we come across clinics like these. the further break our spirits. I have heard about this one in particular. People have similar complaints from them. I wonder why they don't feel it necessary to reply. But let me tell you. I have heard some positive reviews about other clinics as well. You should keep on searching. I am sure you will find the support that you need. You have to stay strong. And not give up yet. If you try hard, luck will come to you. Good luck dear. Prayers are with you.

Thanks for notifying, it is so sad. This is really terrible and I feel really sorry about this. Days are gone when doctors really cared about their patients. I hope no one else becomes a victim of this. Please take care of yourself and don't give up. I am sure there will be other clinics that still have the generosity of treating a patient with care. Don't lose hope. I wish you the best of luck!

hi. how are you?. Before going for any procedure check the details about the clinic first. check their website. check therir links.Then make their way to there. Now lets talk about the infertility treatments .IVF also good. But you can go for surrogacy. Somewhere Surrogacy also seems like the last option. It does not expense more. Doctor consultation is a must. Either it is suitable to go for surrogacy. Or might go to some other procedure. worth sharing video. Stay strong.

Hi, I'm fine. What about you? Infertility is the worst disease in human's life. Surrogacy and IVF is the best treatment for infertility. Many women are very depressed due to infertility. Thanks for sharing your experience with us. I think you should choose the other one clinic that can understand your situation.

It sounds so bad when I hear your story. Doing bad things to people would take them to a bad situation one day. Just like they are doing wrong to the people. I hope they understand this. And stop all this soon. Otherwise, it might create many huge problems. Well, forget about them. just think a bad dream and now you are awake. Look for another clinic. My best wishes are with you.

Hello there! Accept my deepest condolences for your loss first. I know no one wants to go for other options like IVF and surrogacy. Infertility is just devasting. I don't know why clinics do this to infertile women. They just cash the helplessness of them. When they really manage to convince themselves for other options the clinic just disappointed them. I had also gone through this phase. The clinic is just very bad at the response. Luckily I found another clinic in Europe and had my treatments. I suggest everyone please beware of such clinics. They just waste your time and money. They are running their business. I wish no one could ever go through this trauma. Good luck for the future ahead.

Since everyone is sharing their bad experiences here is another one. When I was searching for good clinics in Eastern Europe I emailed a clinic called Adonis as well. They were portraying this image of efficiency on their website. So I emailed them stating that it was a matter of urgency. I wanted to know the details about their Surrogacy program. At first, there was no reply! So I emailed them again after a month. To which I got a very monotonous reply. The person who emailed me asked me for my documents and that is it. I was shocked that none of my emails were answered. I emailed them again asking for the details and also will they be providing me with the accommodation. To which they said that I would have to arrange my own accommodation. The things I analyzed from their replies was that they were highly expensive and had prices that were hidden. So be careful everyone. Good luck to all.

Oh! So sorry for what you have experienced. They are actually betraying people. My friend experienced the same. She contacted them for her Surrogacy via email. But they didn't reply yet. She got so angry. Later, She decided to go to the clinic in Europe. As she was facing infertility. They found her a sound Surrogate. Who is pregnant now. She is extremely happy. She cannot wait to have her own baby. I would suggest this clinic to you. Wish you all the best. Lots of love and prayers from my side. Stay blessed.
