    From:Mr./Ms Tin [answerer]answer
I've been reading about KATO in blogs for the past few days. I'm 31 y/o, I have 2 kids (11 & 7 y/o) both CS then right after i gave birth to my youngest my OB told me to be ligated (age 24) so the procedure done to me s/p cs + s/p btl (2007) I underwent UTZ last year (NOV 2013) to check if my uterus is ok and the impression normal sized anterverted uterus, secretory phase endometrium, normal ovaries and right adnexal adhesions. I consulted 3 OB doctors and advised me to go thru with IVF instead of surgery because they don't know the extent of the BTL.By the way, my second husband had a daughter to his 1st wife, so we also wanted on our own. Is it possible that i can be pregnant thru IVF? Thank you :)

answer: Good morning. Yes, we can help you with IVF. In IVF, we do not need the tubes to get you pregnant. We look forward to seeing you.

    From:Mr./Ms Krizzy [answerer]answer
Me and my husband are married last year. I got preterm loss last Feb. 5, 2014.and after a month we found out that my husband has stage 2 nasopharyngeal cancer. Since he will undergo some treatments that we all knew will affect his fertility i open to him the fertility preservation but he doesnt want to undergo due to personal reasons. I would like to ask is it possible for us to have a baby again? Is there any possible way that his fertility will come back?

answer: Good morning. It would depend on the chemotherapy agents that he will use. Your oncologist would be able to tell you the possible effects on his fertility. An option is to have cryopreserved sperms before he undergoes treatment. We can perform cryopreservation for you.

Hi, me and my husband have been trying to conceive for more than 5 years now. I have PCOS and endometriosis and have done laparoscopy last Sept 2013.

    From:Mr./Ms Rj [answerer]answer
My wife and I are married for more than a year now. I have been diagnosed with varicocele and later on primary testicular failure. Laboratory results that I have high fsh and lh than normal, and low testosterone , my urologist said biopsy is the last procedure he could think of. Is there a possibility that my wife and I can have a child of our own. By the way my wife didn't have any problems with regards to infertility.

    From:Mr./Ms maryan [answerer]answer
Hi! I've been reading about KATO in forums and blogs recently and we would like to try your services. However, we have a few hesitations as we would like to go through a step by step process of infertility treatment first. We have undergone failed iui's already but we are not confident of the process by which it was conducted. We would like to take a step back and start with our fertility work up again. Does KRBC conduct step by step work up process or should the perspective be that couples who consult with you go straight to IVF already? Thank you!

answer:Good morning. Yes, we will evaluate both of you thoroughly first before we recommend treatment. No, not all patients go straight to IVF. We hope to see you soon.

Hi im grace 28yrs old,husband is 30, both Filipino and working here in Abudhabi. I have been married for 1year this coming May and have not yet been pregnant ever since.Regular menstruation per month.As per my OB GYN all are normal with me.My husband's semen 2 results shows that he has azoospermia with fsh of 37, the uro said having a child is next to impossible because husband doesn't produce sperm at all. Is IVF a probable solution for me to conceive? Pls help us.
Thank you!

My fisrst IVF was failed done last October 2013. I have bad endometriosis and i underwent laparoscopy 2008 and laparotomy 2011. On my first IVF my AMh was 0.16 and i received high doses of medicines and no eggs were retrieved. My latest AMH level is 0.03. The Doctor told us that our next option is to get donor egg. IF , I will have donor egg, what is my percentage to get pregnant? what are the risks and benefits.
