If you plan to go for an infertility treatment, be it IUI or IVF, you need to keep few things in mind. Some tips to answer How To Choose Fertility Clinic

Choosing a fertility clinic to be it IVF clinic or IUI clinic is a major decision, and while it may seem straightforward, there's actually a lot to consider before going for the infertility treatment. 

The first thing to remember is that you are not alone when you are going for infertility treatment. A lot of women have gone through this infertility treatment before, and many of them are now happy parents! The process of infertility treatment can feel lonely, but leaning on those who have walked this path before will make everything much easier through this IVF or IUI or IUI phase.

How To Choose Fertility Clinic

Choosing the right fertility clinic can be breathtaking especially when you are bombarded with so many suggestions and internet research. It is always good to talk to someone who has walked on that same road to understand the entire infertility treatment much better. Just so you know, we have listed some pointers you should keep in mind while choosing the right clinic for you: 

1. It's going to be expensive:

When you visit a fertility clinic, you must know about their services and treatment cost package. If you don't have an idea about the costs, they can charge you higher prices due to lack of knowledge. To get an idea of how expensive an IVF or IUI treatment is in your area, search on Ela app and it will help you compare prices and reviews of various treatments.

2. Don't be afraid to get a secondopinion:

When it comes to selecting a clinic, you have to find the right fit. You might really care about finding doctors and nurses who are optimistic and have a great bedside manner. Or you might prefer a team that will be brutally honest with you. Whatever it is you're looking for, you might not find it with the first doctor you visit. So don't be afraid to get a second (or even a third!) opinion.

3. Get your ovarian reserve checked right away (especially if you're over 35):

All it takes is a simple blood test to know the number of follicles and the quality of the follicles, both of which have an effect on whether you can conceive. It was essential to try IVF right away and not waste any time trying other types of fertility treatments.

4. Location Matters:

Getting fertility treatment can be a huge time commitment. When you're in an IVF cycle, you have to go in for blood work and ultrasounds every few days. It doesn't sound like much, but that turns out to be around 6 or 7 times in one month! And when they schedule the egg retrieval and then embryo transfer, you have to be ready to do it when they are—it's all a timing thing. Be prepared to take a day or two off work for the retrieval and the transfer. And you'll be happier if you find a clinic that is relatively easy to get to, in addition to being a good fit.

How To Choose Fertility Clinic

A good place to start is Ela app, it collects the best advice from women who have been through this before. Talk to as many people as you can (don't be afraid to ask a lot of questions)

Opting infertility treatment is a crucial decision. Number of follicles should be checked at first so that mature eggs are present to meet sperm and fertilize.

Many of the fertility centers can charge an unnecessary high amount. Take advice and consultation from those who had such treatment. They will tell you better how to choose the fertility clinic. Ela helped me in finding the best fertility clinic completely free of cost.

IUI treatment is quite less expensive than IVF so first check if you can be benefited with IUI. You should save the money for future plans.
