If you are looking for IVF in Chandigarh or Punjab, the first step is to get comfortable in the knowledge that you are not alone.
More than 35 years after the first IVF baby was born (1978), over 5 million couples have conceived through IVF and according to this CNN report, infertility rates are on the rise and the number of IVF babies is growing each year.
Millions are looking for IVF treatments everyday and it is possible to have a baby, even if it takes medical intervention.
Is IVF for you?
IVF could be your solution:
- If you have been trying to conceive for two years but haven’t been able to find a cause for not getting pregnant
- If your fallopian tubes are blocked or damaged
- If you have tried IUI or fertility drugs, but not been successful
- If your partner has sperm problems (ICSI may be recommended for very low count or motility of sperm)
- If your eggs are causing the failure (Ovum donation may be the answer)
Please note: IVF does not guarantee pregnancy and the results are usually better in younger women. However, there have been cases of conceiving with IVF in even ladies of upto 70 years of age.
To know about chances of success with IVF in your particular case, write to the doctor using the form on the right.
Pregnancy is possible, you have to get the right treatment and know when to look for other alternatives. If you take multiple IVF cycles and are still not able to conceive, you may have to consider surrogacy in Chandigarh.
How is IVF performed?
Before looking for Chandigarh IVF clinics, learn about the steps of IVF treatment:
The first step is for the doctor to examine you for general health, uterine the lining, your age, and other factors, and advise you on the chances of IVF success in your case.
Fertility drugs are administered to stimulate the ovaries to develop mature eggs that are ready for fertilization. Normally, a woman releases one egg each month, but with these drugs and hormone injections a higher number of eggs is expected, which improves the chances of IVF success. Usually 12-14 days of drug administration is sufficient.
3. Egg Retrieval & Sperm Collection
The doctor will perform an ultrasound to determine when your eggs are ready to be collected and the eggs will then be removed with the help of a fine, hollow needle. The procedure is not painful but some patients might experience mild discomfort.
On the same day your partner will be required to provide the semen, which is washed and the best quality sperm is extracted for fertilization of the eggs. Once the two gametes are fused together, they will be kept in an incubator for around 2-5 days.
4. Embryo Transfer
The embryos formed as a result of fertilization are transferred back into the uterus under ultrasound monitoring.
Unlike in the West, we can transfer 2-3 embryos, thus improving the chances of success. If the doctor determines the quality and number of embryos is good enough for future use, she might propose freezing them for a subsequent cycle.
Pregnancy confirmation will come 14 days later.
Cost of IVF in Chandigarh
IVF cost in Chandigarh starts from INR 95,000. While the lab charges for IVF are same for all patients, the cost of drugs varies with individual requirement.
While much cheaper than its price in other parts of India, it is an expensive treatment and all effort is made to see it bring success for you. However, if the treatment fails, the only option is to go for a second cycle.
Feel free to ask all questions and make sure there are no hidden expenses after the doctor has quoted a certain price for IVF.
IVF is expensive, and we understand that the upfront expense of infertility treatments might be difficult to afford.
The best way to lower IVF costs is to go into the treatment with highest chances of success – get all the necessary investigations and consult more than one doctor if required.
