    Hi Nina,

    Sorry to hear about your experience. It sounded just awful! I have seen Dr. Derek Lo a few times. My first visit with him he was very direct which was a bit unsettling. My follow on appointments with him have been really good. I have not had to wait long and he has given me enough time to ask questions without being rushed. I am not sure if he was trying to set my expectations in our initial meeting about getting pregnant but overall I am happy with him.

    Hope this helps and good luck to you!

    I agree with the opinions about the patient Dr Dereck Ho. I went to him to seek fertility help 3 yrs ago but was pleasantly surprised to find out that I was pregnant on my first visit. I continued to see him for another 2 months and he was very patient. In the end, he has to refer me to another Dr cos he is more focused on fertility treatment.

    I did asked about the treatment but I do not know if it is IVF or IUI....the total is about HK$80,000.

    Anyway, just to share abit on my fertility issue. My cycle was very irregular about 2-3 mths interval. We went Yung Wo Hospital and found that the eggs in my ovary were very small.

    We actually tried for 2 yrs. In the end, I took a chinese medicine called " bai Fong yuen" from Beijing Tong ren tong stores in Central. The medicines were not expensive. It was actually to regulate my menstruation. 6 mths later I was pregnant.

    For my second baby, I took the same medicine and 6 mths later, I was pregnant with my second. I find it unbelievable as my cycle were so irregular. I am not 100% sure if it was the medicine but my friend took the same and few mths later, also got pregnant. Hope the above helps.
