IVF Cost in India
IVF Cost in India
Risaa IVF offers affordable IVF cost in India, and the standard cost ranges from 1.5 to 2.5 lakh. Although, the cost of IVF treatment in India or anywhere is determined by several factors like the age of the intended mother, cause and severity of infertility, type of IVF, etc. And most importantly, the number of IVF cycles.
When a couple can’t achieve pregnancy despite continuous attempts for conception, it is considered infertility. Infertility may be due to female reproductive disorders, such as ovulation dysfunction, tubal causes, endometrial causes, etc., or it may be related to male reproductive disorders like problems with sperm ejection. Sometimes infertility is age-related, and other times the cause is unknown.
1 in 6 couples in India faces difficulty in conceiving and require fertility treatments to get pregnant. IVF is a type of fertility treatment which helps people to attain pregnancy. It is the most effective and popular choice for infertility treatment among couples. However, one indecisive factor in choosing IVF is the cost of IVF treatment.
What is In Vitro Fertilization or IVF?
For some couples, achieving pregnancy is difficult due to any obstruction occurring in the way of fertilization and embryo implantation. Favourably, in the IVF process, the egg and sperm are collected or retrieved from the parents or donor and intermixed for fertilization. The embryos or fertilized eggs are later transferred into the uterine cavity for implantation. So, basically, IVF stimulates the process of fertilization of eggs with sperm and implantation of embryos.
As simple as it sounds, IVF is a complex multi-step procedure. It requires expert skills and state-of-the-ART (assisted reproductive techniques) technologies. Hence, the IVF cost in India is quite significant amount. The cost of medications, IVF expert’s consultation fee, cost of IVF procedure, cost of lab tests and scans, embryologists fee, donor programs, etc., makes the cost of IVF treatment high.
When is IVF treatment needed?
Not every couple needs IVF treatment to get pregnant. The requirement of IVF treatment depends on the female partner’s age and the cause of infertility. There are various artificial or assisted reproductive fertility treatments. Women whose partner has a low sperm count might conceive through IUI treatment. And women who have ovulation problems while their male partner has no infertility issues might get pregnant through ovulation induction with fertility drugs and timed intercourse. These fertility treatment options are inexpensive compared to IVF.
However, not all infertility issues can be addressed with low-complexity infertility treatment like IUI, and IVF treatment is required for complex infertility issues. Consequently, the cost of IVF treatment will be higher.
IVF treatment is required for the following causes:
- Previous IUI failed
- Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes
- Recurrent miscarriages
- Uterine Fibroids
- Severe male infertility, such as anejaculation, very low sperm count, etc.,
- Age-related infertility, especially if the woman is above 30 years of age
- Unexplained infertility
- If donor gametes are required
- If one or both parents have a genetic disorder
