ZEENAT DAWANI, BAHRAIN, MIDDLE EAST
After watching these videos, many women from all around the world wrote into Fiona Boulton asking if she could share more information about the specifics of Zeenat’s fertility steps to success at age 52. Zeenat kindly answered the questions in a WhatsApp voice recording which our team transcribed for you below.
Here’s a bit more information about Zeenat’s successful baby journey:
“I took the Ayurvedic medication about 12 days before going in for the transfer. Then, four days before the transfer I met with the doctor and took the Neopogen. They placed this into my uterus then four days afterwards I had the embryo transfer procedure. I think this helped because I got pregnant, which was the main thing!
I did not do genetic testing. Therefore, I did not do Pre-implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) nor Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD). Instead, I opted to not risk having a sample of my embryos checked due to the relatively low amount that I had.
However, the clinic looked at my eggs under a microscope to ensure that they were of good quality. They were very clear and round which was a good sign.
This clinic are experts at treating all types of difficult conditions, so they recommended to use the embryos that they chose and I was happy and trusted their expertise.
Additionally, my husband did not have good sperm quality so he started taking Zinc to increase his fertility and sperm quality. However, ultimately, they decided to do ICSI (intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection), choosing his best sperm to use with the best eggs they had extracted from me.
Finally, I want to say I highly recommend my clinic in north Cyprus which is rather simple but they have a great embryologist and a very well experienced professor. I also recommend the Hospital Genesis in Athens where Dr Pantos has got a lady in her 70’s pregnant.”
