Example of your treatment plan

Story of Ewa and Sten


Sorry this treatment programme is no longer available

Please visit our main page to find out more about treatment options


Before coming to St. Petersburg you will need to follow your own individual treatment plan which we will provide after the initial consultation (done in Petersburg, Oslo or Stockhom or on the phone/skype).

This treatment plan will usually include one cycle of birth control pills to prepare your ovaries, 8-12 daily, easily self-administered, injections and 2-3 scans in your home country. Usually it takes 5 weeks from when you start the pills before you come to St. Petersburg.

Your visit in St. Petersburg

As you will see from the ‘treatment example’ you have a 3 free days in our city after the planned date of collection on the Wednesday, this is due the fact that  your collection day may be altered + or – 2 days, this is dependent upon your reaction to the medication. If we should need to make these changes and either bring your collection forward or extend it to the Thursday or Friday, we will inform you in the Monday’s consultation. Once your egg collection date is confirmed on the Monday, or even earlier after your last scan at your local clinic, you are free to change your flights accordingly so as to return home earlier if you wish.

If you would like to find out more information about our Family balancing Programme please contact one of our patient coordinators (link to request a call) who will be happy to advise you further about the process and will book your free, non-obliging telephone consultation with our doctors.

For example, in women in the age of 43 and above or women in premature menopause there are sadly no healthy eggs left. Luckily it is still possible to become a mother and even choose a gender of you future baby through IVF with donor eggs and PGS
