After two years of battling infertility, a couple is now 12 weeks pregnant

Fakih IVF Center, one of the leading infertility centers in the GCC region, has once again helped a couple achieve their dream of starting their own family.

Committed to support families battling infertility, the fertility center randomly selects one couple from among its consultative patients to receive an IVF cycle, free of charge, each year, during National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW).

This year, the center chose Mr. and Mrs. Hawi during the NIAW week held in April. Treated by Dr Zakwan Khrait, Specialist Reproductive Medicine and Infertility in Dubai, the couple is currently 12 weeks pregnant and extremely thrilled especially after several failed attempts in battling infertility for nearly two years.

Dr Michael Fakih, Medical Director at Fakih IVF, said “Infertility can be emotionally exhausting for families experiencing it and we wish to reach out to everyone to help them during this tough phase in their lives. During the National Infertility Awareness Week each year, the aim is to provide the suitable resources that could help individuals embark on their family building journeys successfully.”

Based on the assessment of the Hawi’s case, experts at Fakih IVF designed a treatment plan that would help them conceive at the earliest. “We decided to go ahead with an IVF cycle using an antagonist stimulation protocol. The plan was to freeze all embryos since the patient was on the risk of Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. This is then followed by an embryo transfer done in the following cycle after preparing the endometrium with the artificial protocol and later transferring two embryos on the Blastopcyst stage,” said Dr Khrait.

Desperate to start a family of their own, the Hawi’s had been saving up to fund the treatment, but were extremely thrilled upon learning about their selection to receive a free IVF treatment from the center.

“I don’t think I can stop smiling, it still hasn’t hit me that this is happening and I will be a mother in a few months. Once I see my stomach growing and feel the movement, I think that’s when I will realise that this is really happening. I am really happy right now,” said, Mrs Hawi. “We would like to thank Dr. Zakwan who made us feel at ease and gave us the assurance we needed during this difficult time,” added Mrs. Hawi.

Each year the center helps several couples battling infertility issues by providing them with all the required services until conception has been successfully achieved.

Fakih IVF, one of the IVF centers in the region with an in-house Genetics Laboratory, continually strives to improve medical protocols and invests in the latest technology, including the introduction of the ground-breaking EmbryoScope technology to the UAE. With several state-of-the-art technologies, and centers located across Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Dubai, Fakih IVF is continually advancing in the field of reproductive medicine across the region.
