What is the fertility rate after thawing? Is it possible to find a donor to provide sperm if there is no male partner? What are the risks to my body to perform this exercise? Are there any actions that can be taken to adjust the situation in advance to preserve the best eggs? Everyone has too many questions before proceeding, and we all know it well!

  • 通過申請進行治療的流程呢?
    申請通過後,就可以開始準備在日住宿以及交通等規劃。第一次赴日的就診時,在該院還是需要接受再次的檢查,確認最新的狀況。確認完畢認定可以接受時,就會開始製作固定器具、訂定往後的醫療計畫好確認接受的時間,重離子治療中心人員也會告知各項注意事項。 治療將會在門診時進行,療程的長短會依照患部的不同而有所變化,每日一次,每周五次以內。一般而言,這段時間會在停留在日本進行治療,患者需接受醫師專業的診療,遵守治療計畫進行即可。如有任何不適的症狀產生,需立即反映溝通。
