One Fertility Patient’s IVF Experience Abroad

Tune in tomorrow, February 27th, to hear about one fertility patient’s IVF experience abroad. She is going to share her IVF testimonials on a radio show and you will have a chance to dial in to ask questions.

ivf-abroad-story-testimonialHere is a brief udpate on what has transpired this week. Two doctors did the procedure on Monday morning. Rebecca told us that both fertility specialists were very nice. They explained the whole procedure (embryo transfer), as it went along. One of them even drove them back to the hotel so they didn’t have to take a cab.

Prior to the transfer, the IVF doctors told Rebecca that they and the embryologist had discussed the quantity they would recommend to transfer and would freeze the rest (MedVacation clinic uses Vitrification process for freezing eggs and embryos).

The day of her embryo transfer, Rebecca was prescribed bed rest. Her IVF doctor told her she could go see a movie in the afternoon the following day (Tuesday). She returned home on Wednesday. IVF patients may travel by plane 36 hours after embryo transfer was performed. Air travel does not pose any danger to pregnancy as long as constant air pressure is maintained. Modern airplanes, as a rule, don’t have sudden air pressure changes.

Antabuse Implants Help Stop Drinking

MedVacation adds 5 Day Alcohol Detox and Antabuse Implants Program to its Alcoholism Treatment offering
Alcoholisim treatment clinic offering antabuse implantsAntabuse is the oldest medication approved by the FDA for the treatment of alcoholism. Unlike new medications for alcoholism that either block the effects of alcohol or block the craving to take a drink, Antabuse works by making alcoholics extremely sick, every time someone taking it takes a drink.

The drug disulfiram (Antabuse) can be taken orally. Unfortunately, the compliance is the major issue with this approach. An alternative method of medicine delivery takes the form of the subcutaneous or intramuscular implantation of sterile pellets of disulfiram. This type of alcohol treatment is commonly referred to as coding patients. The procedure was introduced over 20 years ago in the country of France and is extensively practiced in Eastern Europe and former Soviet Union countries at the present time. The implanted drug enters into blood stream, while it slowly dissolves, thus maintaining appropriate drug concentration in blood during 10-13 months. Studies show that between 93 and 95 percent patients who underwent Antabuse implant have shown good results.

MedVacation is offering a Five Day Alcohol Addiction Detox Program with Antabuse Implants starting at $3,999. This package includes:

• Five to seven days inpatient alcohol treatment program
• Alcohol detox prior to implantation of Antabuse implant
• Blood work
• All physician and hospital fees for Antabuse implant surgery
• Antabuse implant
• Counseling and routine medical support during your stay abroad
• One month supply of Tianeptine and Truxal
• Round trip airfare for the patient from the major airport closest to the patient’s place of residence
• Ground transportation in the destination country to and from the hotel and medical facility throughout the stay

Our low cost, one week long alcohol addiction treatment packages offer greater than 70% cost savings over conventional inpatient alcohol addiction 28-day programs offered in the U.S. In addition, even counting two days dedicated to traveling, our Antabuse Implant Program allows you to complete your alcohol treatments within one week.
