Our Success Story

Khun Phimnipha / Khun Wirat Tangnarakit and Nong Phado

Blastocyst Culture

With the up-to-date adroitness appropriate to the new generation, and at ages 32 and 34 respectively, Khun Phimnipha and Khun Wirat Tangnarakit showed themselves ready and happy to spend some time talking and sharing their experiences before they came to have their infant son Phadol, the most lovable little boy who completed his first year on this 3'rd of January just past.

Khun Wirat opened the discussion by saying "At the time we were just married we left it to nature. We didn't practice any birth control. After about a year had passed we began to feel we might be infertile. We went to consult with doctors who were expert in this line - several doctors at several places." At this point Khun Phimnipha broke in with "We went many times. I was artificially inseminated six times but it did not take. Finally it did, but for only 1 month, because I suffered an accident while driving. The car was stuck at the red lights when another car hit me from behind and caused the fetus to slip."

The two stopped trying for about a year, until an elder sister recommended that they go to see Dr. Thongthit, Before they met Dr. Thongthit, they had not known anything about the blastocyst technology. They only knew about the doctor's reputation. As soon as they met the doctor they heard about blastocysts. They were interested and made up their minds to take this treatment without delay.

What were the stages?

"It began with a physical checkup. Nothing out of the ordinary was found. So I began injections of ovulatory medication every day in succession for about a week. I don't remember for certain how many days. But the injections had to be given at the dsame time, except fot the final injection, that was given at 10 o'clock to release the eggs. Hormones were checked to see if they were ready. After that, early in the morning, I had an appointment to extract the eggs. They were fertilized and left for 5-6 days, until a little one was complete. This it was put back in the uterus. But at that time I got an attack of migraine, which is my chronic condition. It got worse and prevented the progestational hormone from forming. The attempt failed."

What did you do after that?

"We left off for about a year."

Why did you put it off for so long?

"Because we were tired" Khun Wirat replied. "The expence, our physical and mental state. That is, we were under stress, so we would like to rest and recuperate in body and mind for a while, and it was like preparing ourselves in readiness for another treatment."

The two returned a second time for treatment by the blastocyst method with Dr. Thongthit, going through the same process as on the first occasion in every respect, and did everything as the doctor recommended. In the end they achieved the success they had hoped for.

How did you feel when you knew you were pregnant?

"I was happy, but I still did not hold out hope, even though I went through the first 3 months safely. I still had to wait in doubt all the time because there was the possibilty of a slip and we had failed several times already. I had to wait and watch all the time, feeling rather nervous." Khun Phimnipha went on "During the first period there was bleeding. I had to stay at the Hospital to get treatment from the doctor until I was safely through. We could not stop worrying. It was like a mental illness or whatever. During that time we still wondered whether or not the baby was in the right state for 32 weeks or whether something else had gone wrong. So we had to take an amniotic fluid sample for a special examination. At the same time this let us know the sex of the baby."

But you had to go to more expense?

"Yes, but it put our minds at ease. In fact, if you talk about the total cost, it was not too expensive. It may be high compared with a public hospital. The part that was really expensive was the injections of ovulatory medication, but the rest was routine maintenance - or in the case when it may have been a little more, as when the bleeding made it necessary to stay at the Hospital for several cycles. But on the whole I think it was appropriate to the technology. Because we must say that the blastocyst culture is the most advanced technology at the present time at for treating the state of infertility. That is, it has been developed to yet one more level in nurturing the little one for a longer time before returning it to the uterus."

Is there anything that specially impressed you?

"The expertise and workmanship of the doctor's team, whether in giving advice, their devotion, and speed in performing an operation. Because the doctor has a medical and nursing team in attendance. This made me feel confident. The Hospital is clean and up-to-date. It is not too expensive. You are directly in contact. You have to wait a short time to see the doctor, because the doctor has many patients. It would be good if the doctor's team was increased, larger than at present. On the whole I feel satisfied with this."

The two expect that they are likely to come back for service in order to have another admirable child in the near future.
