Hello everyone! The reason why I am raising fund is to help us cover the cost of our IVF treatment. My husband is a foreign teacher here in Taiwan and I am on a dependent visa. We both have Taiwan’s NHI, but it doesn’t cover infertility treatment and since we are both foreigners, we do not qualify for the Taiwan’s government subsidy for infertility treatment.

I (Jovelyn) have lived in Taiwan for almost nine years, and my husband has been here for twelve. We began trying to get pregnant in the fall of 2021. We soon found out that we are suffering from infertility. I am 36 years old and turning 37 this year. In November of 2021, we saw an obstetrician who referred us to a fertility specialist in the same month. I have a very low AMH (a hormone that affects my egg reserve) for my age. In addition to my low AMH, I also have EFS (empty follicle syndrome). EFS means that it is difficult to retrieve eggs, even after using the stimulation medication.

My husband was also tested, and we learned he has a low sperm count and poor sperm quality. Because of the result of my husband’s test, we needed to see a urologist the following month to find out why. The urologist told him that he has a varicocele, a congenital condition that affects his sperm. Unfortunately, if we want to have a child, our only option is to do IVF and ICSI.

We already did 3 egg retrieval surgeries. The first surgery wasn’t successful. We got an egg and it didn’t fertilize. We successfully got 6 eggs on the 2nd surgery and 3 of them developed into5 days blastocyst. And we implanted 2 embryos last year, but they didn’t result in a live birth. I had miscarriage on the 8th week of my pregnancy. Recently we decided to have another egg retrieval to add up with the remaining one embryo that is currently frozen to maximize our chance. And we successfully retrieved 8eggs and 4 of them fertilized and we are now monitoring to see if they will develop into a 5 days blastocyst. And this time we want to send them to a chromosome testing before implanting. The amount of the testing is quite expensive. And we already spent a lot of money with all the procedures.

Any amount will be a really big help for us to keep on trying with this journey to have our dream baby. Thank you everyone.

This is the the breakdown of the IVF cost in the clinic that we are going for your reference

120000- 160000 NTD / per cycle (round)

The stimulation medication cost depend on my body condition. And this is the amount the we paid for my case: ( 45000-50000NTD /per cycle)

The egg retrieval surgery costs (45000-55000 NTD / per surgery)

Freezing fee and procedures with the embryo including tubes cost ( 13000-18000 + 5000 NTD/ per cycle)

And the Chromosomes Testing PGT -A costs ( 20000NTD/ per embryo )and not including the other costs

I thought I set my goal amount today. And I thought that I set it correctly. Apparently when my sister was trying to donate, she couldn’t edit the amount. And she could only donate the amount that I thought I set as our goal. I am sorry if I did

We have 2 embryos to send to chromosome testing. The test cost 20k ntd per embryo. And since they thawed out the other embryo from being frozen last time. That’s additional 10k ntd and since they need to be in the separate tube to be tested and frozen that will
