Things That You Must Know Before Getting an IVF Treatment in India

Infertility has become increasingly prevalent in India. With issues such as endometriosis and  PCOD/PCOS on the rise, the number of infertile couples all over the country has increased significantly. To deal with the problem, many couples have been seeking IVF treatment in India.
 
What Is IVF?
IVF or In-Vitro Fertilization is a process through which the eggs are extracted from the would-be mother’s ovaries and then mixed with the sperm in the lab-based dish. This fertilization outside of the womb is termed as “In-vitro” that translates to “In-glass.” Post-fertilization in the laboratory, the embryo is transferred into the uterus for further growth.

IVF can be an expensive treatment, and the cost of a cycle depends upon what kind of treatment you need.

IVF treatment can be expensive and can create a considerable financial burden. This is the reason we have now tied up with CreditFair to offer interest-free EMI options to our patients. 
 
 
This makes IVF much more affordable for patients who are not able to  pay up a large amount of money upfront , but can do so over a period of 6-9 months. Because your payments are spread out over a period of time , you can do the IVF now, and don't have to waste precious months waiting to be able to afford an IVF cycle . Not only is waiting extremely frustrating , your chances of getting pregnant keep on dropping as you get older. 
 
When you use the CreditFair EMI option, you don't have to bear any additional interest burden at all - we pay this for you. This means you end up paying exactly the same amount, but over a period of six - nine months, which makes it much more feasible for you to do your IVF treatment now, rather than having to postpone it.

Before you get going with the plan of IVF treatment, make sure you know the things that will aptly assist you with the reproduction process.
 
1-Ample Research
Make sure you do your research properly before selecting an IVF clinic. Understand the process and make sure you are financially ready for this. Most of the fertility treatments tend to be expensive which is why you need to be sure that you plan everything from the start. Knowing the right IVF treatment cost is very necessary to ensure that you don’t pay more than necessary.
 
2-Rate of Success
IVF cost in India is comparatively low than other countries such as the U.K. or the U.S., but it is high for the general population. This is why you need to know your chances of success with IVF. Which clinic you select makes a world of a difference, so don't blindly go to the one which is nearest or the one which is cheapest - this may turn out to be a more expensive option in the long run! 
 
3-Age
Age is an important factor with regards to IVF success rates. It's not just your calendar age which we are concerned with - it's the age of your ovaries, as judged by your ovarian reserve. We can test this by checking your AMH level and your antral follicle count.
Even for women above the age of 35, reputed IVF clinics like Malpani Infertility Clinic have high success rates for IVF because we can modify your superovulation protocol to help you grow better quality eggs, thus maximizing your chances of getting pregnant.
 
Summary
IVF has given hope to many couples who have tried for years to get pregnant. However, the success rate depends on the quality of the care provided by the clinic, and this does influence the cost of your treatment.
