IVF is a complex procedure and can be quite heavy on the pocket. Besides, the chances of success are just about 50% at best.
Too many IVF clinics—without proper equipment or the expertise to handle these sophisticated technologies—are mushrooming and it is imperative you select the one that feels right.
Do not comprise on the quality of care or the service standards only to save a few thousand rupees. Most people take only one or two chances at IVF and you want to give your best shot.
IVF Hyderabad Cost
IVF in Hyderabad costs between INR 80k to 100k, not including the cost of hormonal injections, which will be based upon your individual requirement.
You have to understand that eventually it is just one fertilized egg, which will grow inside your womb into a baby.
You should consult an infertility specialist if:
- Your fallopian tubes are blocked or damaged
- You have premature ovarian failure
- Either you or your partner have genetic disorders
- You have uterine fibroids
- You have gynaecologic conditions like endometriosis
- Male partner has decreased sperm count or low sperm motility
- You are over 35 years of age and unable to conceive after 6 months of trying
- You have not been able to conceive in 12 months
- You have not had successful results with IUI
What if we have problems with my egg or his sperm?
Do not be afraid to spend on diagnostic tests, if it helps the doctor understand your situation better.
If problems are detected with either your eggs or your partner’s sperm, you can opt for third-party reproduction—donor sperm or donor egg IVF.
Talk to an infertility counsellor to see how you feel about this arrangement and talk about the legal issues. Although the donors are thoroughly screened and usually there are no problems in these cases, you will want to be well informed.
If you can, you may also convince someone you know to donate an egg or sperm for you.
What if IVF fails?
IVF failure happens in almost about half the cases, so you have to be prepared. It helps to get into the treatment only after you find a reliable doctor and then pursue it with full conviction.
IVF is a big emotional and financial investment and you have to be realistic with your expectations about its success.
Do not fall for false claims of unusually high IVF success or guarantees.
