Our story, like those of many couples, was linked to reproductive failure. Unfortunately, at our dating stage, we didn’t pay much attention to it, and things were supposed to go with the flow. But after the wedding, when we decided and were ready to have a baby, we weren’t succeeding. A certain period of time has passed before we opted for artificial insemination, here in Croatia. It involved brilliant doctors but to no avail. We tried several inseminations during spring and summer, but as they were unsuccessful, we had an appointment for artificial insemination before next spring. And then our best friend, and best man, who knew about our situation, has shared a story about what he called “their success”, because he couldn’t stand keeping it a secret anymore. He and his wife also haven’t managed to get pregnant, not even with the help of modern medicine, so they took a chance with biotherapy. You could say that their success was immediate :) so today they are proud and happy parents to two wonderful children.
We decided to try it as well, and we were waiting for our appointment or for a chance to even go to the treatment earlier if there would be any free spots, which is exactly what had happened. Somehow, after the experience that we have heard about, and after a few conversations we had before going to biotherapy, we were quite relaxed. And after entering the hall where the therapy took place, if there ever was any sign of nervousness, it now has simply vanished. The atmosphere in which the treatment took place was relaxing, extremely pleasant and soothing. We were asked to attend the therapy together, which we did, and in addition to the basic problem and reason of our arrival, we were treated for some other health issues we had at the time, as well. Perhaps those issues were nothing great or special, and people exist who would be happy to have those as their biggest concern in life; but when somebody helps you to solve the problem of the perpetual sinuses inflammation in the winter or something like a chronic knee pain, you have a reason to be happy… very much so. Especially when the greatest wish that you could’ve had, comes true… after just a few months have passed.
Upon completion the therapy, on the fourth day (in that period therapies were held from Monday to Thursday), we were simply told that it’s not necessary to come again, and we were asked to contact them when we get pregnant. It’s been said in such a simple way, with a smile on the therapist’s face, that we had to ask him to repeat it once again as if we didn’t hear it well, although we knew that we’ve heard it accurately. Three months later, while on a lovely trip, Helena’s period was late, and just as they predicted it on the treatment, we learned that she is pregnant. It’s hard to describe the happiness we felt at that moment – or, rather, it’s quite simple to describe it. I will forever remember the dance that came all by itself, followed by a never-ending smile. Today, we are parents to a beautiful, cheerful, sweet and carefree girl, and we will do everything we can to keep her stay that way. Almost 6 years have passed since then, and Sara will turn five this fall. She loves to travel, which is not surprising if you remember where it was that we learned we are about to become “three” and thus form a family.
There was an idea in me that needed some time to become ripe, and, to my great satisfaction, it did. This spring I attended a biotherapy Module B Course. It was led by Ivan who taught us everything he knows, and who keep on sharing his knowledge and experiences unselfishly with us. I’m glad to say that I have already managed to help the people around me, and I’m looking forward to helping anyone who will need and seek help.
Biggest Thank you to Andrea, Veljko & Ivan and kind regards to everyone!
