In this article we will look at:

Following is the list of reasons to get IVF treatment in India:

Benefits of Getting IVF Treatments in India

1. Low-cost treatment options

Compared to Western countries, medical charges in India are much cheaper. Although it depends on the standards of the hospital, the cost of IVF treatment is still affordable than developed countries. The cost of medication and prescription drugs used in the treatment is also much less than other countries. 

2. State-of-the-art technology

Reputed hospital and clinics in India are equipped with high-tech medical technologies. They follow complex medical procedures which cost much more in advanced countries like the US and UK.

3. Advanced procedures to treat infertility

Experienced IVF specialists take patients through advanced treatments to ensure complete medical treatment. The doctors in India are just as skilled as the doctors in first world countries. 

4. Extensive facilities

Advanced facilities like a routine checkup, patient care, hospital room amenities, and cleanliness are all maintained for the comfort of the patients. 

5. English speaking medical staff

Doctors, attendants, and other medical staff are all trained or educated in English to make communication much easier. 

6. Medical consultants

Medical tour consultants like Elawoman, help international patients find the best medical centers and most reputed gynecologists in the country.

Growth of Infertility Hospitals in India

  • Currently, 22 to 33 million couples in the reproductive age are suffering from lifetime infertility.
  • Females alone account for 40 percent to 50 percent of infertility problems, while male infertility rate accounts for 30 percent to 40 percent. 
  • High-risk factors like STDs and other reproductive disorders are key drivers for the high burden of infertility. 

First Test Tube Baby in India

Dr. Subhash Mukhopadhyay was the first physician in India to perform the In vitro fertilization resulting in a successful test tube baby named “Durga” (Kanupriya Agarwal) on October 3, 1978.

Prevalence of IVF or Test Tube Baby Technique

IVF treatments are growing in India due to the rise of infertility cases. Many couples go for medications and IUI treatments if these treatments are not successful 50 percent of infertile couples further approach the IVF method. 

Infertility Disorders that are Treated in India

In India, all categories of infertile patients are treated with modern treatment methods and advanced procedures to increase the chance of success. Some of the infertility disorders treated in India can be listed as:

Common Test Tube Baby Procedure Followed in India

Treatment for test tube baby in India is performed with extreme care and precision to ensure a high success rate of pregnancy.

1. Suppressing Natural Menstrual Cycle

In female infertility, a woman receives a drug, usually in the form of a daily injection for about two weeks, to suppress her natural menstrual cycle.

2. Super Ovulation

Fertility drugs containing the fertility hormone Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) are given to a woman, to assist production of more eggs in the ovaries. Vaginal ultrasound scans are used to monitor the growth of eggs.

3. Eggs Retrieval

Eggs are collected from ovaries through a minor surgical procedure known as “follicular aspiration.” A thin needle is inserted through vagina and then into an ovary. The eggs are sucked out using an advanced suction device. The doctors collect about 15 eggs in one cycle, which is known to provide the highest chance of successful pregnancy. Sometimes, frozen or donated eggs are also used.

4. Sperm Tests

In male fertility, the sperms of a man or a donor are examined in a lab for sperm count and motility. The healthy sperms are selectively picked and separated from toxic impurities to be prepared for insemination.

5. Insemination and Fertilization

After eggs and sperms are collected, they are kept in a controlled environment. Next, an embryologist performs a technique known as Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), in which, selected sperms are physically inserted into the egg to facilitate fertilization. Some centers on India also offer Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) which can screen an embryo for genetic disorders. A few days later the healthiest embryo is selected for transfer.

6. Embryo Transfer

When eggs are fertilized and formed into an embryo, they are prepared for insertion. Before the process, women are given progesterone or Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (hCG) to help the lining of the womb.

The embryo is implanted in the womb through vagina using a thin tube, or catheter. When the embryo sticks to the lining of the womb, healthy embryo growth can begin.

In Vitro Fertilization – Chance of Success

A woman’s ability to conceive a baby minimizes with increasing age. It is important to note that when you use your own eggs, your chances of success are higher at a younger age. Use of harmful drugs, hormonal imbalances, and genetics can also influence the chance of pregnancy. In 2010, women who opted for In vitro Fertilization (IVF) using their own new eggs, the percentage of cycles initiated resulted in a live birth was:

  • 32.2 percent for women aged under 35 years
  • 27.7 percent for women aged between 35–37 years 
  • 20.8 percent for women aged between 38–39 years 
  • 13.6 percent for women aged between 40–42 years
  • 5.0 percent for women aged between 43–44 years
  • 1.9 percent for women aged 45 years and over

Test Tube Baby Cost in India

Test Tube Baby Cost in India is far less than other developed nations; therefore, may infertile patients come to India to get the same treatment at lower cost. 

Rates for Basic IVF Treatment

For one IVF cycle, the average cost of treatment in India is approximately Rs. 2, 50,000. It can depend on the procedure and place of treatment as the rate can go up as high as Rs. 4, 50,000 for one cycle of the treatment.

Rates for Any Advanced Treatments

The costs are much higher if a patient requires advanced technological assistance in IVF. ICSI treatment will require an additional Rs.1,50,000 to Rs. 2,50,000. An FET (Frozen Embryo Transfer) procedure will cost patients about Rs.1,20,000, apart from the IVF cost in India. See the table below and find out the average cost of IVF treatment cycles in the major cities of India:

CITY

AVERAGE COST OF IVF TREATMENT CYCLES IN Rs.

Mumbai

Rs. 2,00,000 to Rs. 3,00,000

Bangalore

Rs. 1,60,000 to Rs. 1,75,000

Chennai

I was really nervous and afraid to go through the IVF treatment procedure alone, as my husband was out of India. A friend suggested me Elawoman and l am glad I took her advice. Elawoman helped me find the nearest infertility doctor at the best treatment cost.
