In an ideal world, all IVF clinics would be equally good.
They would have high quality control standards; would be
open and transparent; follow global best practices; respect their patients; and share medical records routinely and
proactively with their patients , so that whether or not patients got pregnant,
they would have peace of mind that they have received good quality treatment.
Tragically, this just does not happen in India today , and
sadly the government hasn't done a good job with regulating IVF clinics.
This means the quality can be extremely patchy, and while we
do have some world class IVF clinics, we have some terrible ones as well.
This is why it's so important that patients be proactive
and learn to figure out the difference between a good and a bad IVF clinic.
The good news is it's easy to do so , because all you need
to do is demand photos of your embryos.. The bad news is that bad IVF clinics refuse
to share these, and thus end up damaging the reputation of the entire IVF
profession, because patients get upset when the doctor hides information from
And once patients have burned their fingers with one IVF
clinic, they're very reluctant to go to a second one , because they think all IVF
clinics are equally bad, and will cheat them.
