These Czech Republic Fertility Clinics Offer Affordable IVF and Egg Donation



Prague, Czech RepublicIncreasing numbers of Americans dealing with infertility are choosing to travel to fertility clinics abroad to avoid high prices in the US. Popular destinations for international infertility treatments include Spain and Thailand. Another popular destination for IVF holidays in Europe is the Czech Republic, a country that manages to be both old world and new world simultaneously.

Their capital, Prague, is a bustling city with all the modern conveniences you’d find in Paris, London, or Zurich, including highly qualified physicians working in high-tech hospitals and clinics. But take the train into the countyside surrounding it, into the mountains, and you’ll find ancient castles and tiny villages seemingly untouched by time. It’s a wonderful place to take your IVF vacation, and an extremely affordable alternative to US fertility clinics and egg donation programs.

    I went to Zlin twice for egg donor IVF. I had very bad experience using IVFVacation as they're not certified medical professionals, they constantly gave incorrect medical instructions and provided inconsistent information. I DON'T recommend use them. It was a better experience for the second time when I went through with the clinic directly, but I still didn't get pregnant. The successful rate is very low there. I don't have faith in their egg donor program and wondering how trustworthy they are.

    I went to the clinic in Zlin for IVF treatment. Doctors and staff speak English well and are professional. It's easy to sign up to the clinic and communicate with their international coordinators. I highly recommend you to sign up through the clinic directly. The name of the clinic is called "Clinic Reproductive medicine and Gynecology". The coordinator is Petra, her email address is "petra.kucerova@crmzlin.cz". I don't recommend using the Agency IVFVacation. I had a very bad experience using them, they made it very difficult for patient to communicate directly with the clinic and the Doctors.

    I went to Zlin in October 2009. I did not use ivfvacation, I went directly through the clinic.
    I have had SUCH A POSITIVE experience of the clinic. Diana, the coordinator, was very helpful. She is lovely and she is Dr Chovanec's wife. Her email is diana.chovancova@crmzlin.cz
    Dr Chovanec was absolutely perfect. He did a good job – I am pregnant!!!!!! So happy….

    Hi, I am in Zlin now and really very pleased with the clinic. I don't think you'll be disappointed at all in your decision to go to Zlin. If I were planning our trip again, I would surely go directly through the clinic, fly into Vienna (beautiful city),then take train to Zlin (very cheap), and stay in town (Zlin is better than Luhacovice). Regarding the clinic, it is brand new, with a new Pharmacy, very clean and the people are very nice – especially nurse Iwona, Diana, and Dr Chovenac (Diana's husband). I went directly through clinic, corresponding with Diana – she was fantastic! She put me at ease about everything, she is such a lovely gentle person. She will go the extra mile for you. Her e-mail is diana.chovancova@crmzlin.cz
    It is such an awesome experience ! We (my husband and I) are so impressed with Zlin and have such an amazing trip that we immediately started planning to go back for next cycle if it wouln't work. So, don't worry to travel so far – many restaurants have English menus and shopping in Zlin – they have anything you will need. Finally, don't miss the ZOO! We (my husband and I) are truly enjoying Zlin!
    Sending you babydust from Zlin!
