IVF Cost and Fertility Treatments Abroad

From start to finish, a typical IVF protocol would require a 17-day stay abroad. Although MedVacation fertility doctors would prefer our clients to stay in their clinics for the entire IVF cycle, most patients are able to reduce the number of days spent abroad by way of starting ovulation stimulation with a local OBGYN doctor. With egg donor cycles, the length of stay abroad is even shorter, since our embryologist will need the sperm on the twelfth day of the cycle. With IVF cycles using own eggs, you can spend the first seven days at home. During that time, our doctors will work very closely with yours to get everything ready for the next step.

ivf-cost-with-fertility-doctors-abroadUntil recently, embryos were cultured for three days and then transferred to the uterus and/or cryogenically frozen for later use. Our IVF clinics now have the ability to grow the embryos for five or six days until they reach the blastocyst stage. Blastocysts have a greater chance of implantation. Blastocysts transfer is often preferred by our clients, because it allows our IVF doctors to transfer fewer embryos and lower the risk of multiple births. In addition, blastocysts transfers give couples significantly higher chances for pregnancy.

You may return home 2-3 days after the embryo transfer. Our work does not end here though. Before you leave our clinic, you will be instructed to purchase injectables, estrogen tablets and suppository medicine to support the first 12 weeks of your pregnancy. Post-transfer IVF medications from our clinics’ pharmacies cost half as much as they do in the U.S. Upon your return to your home town, you will schedule a number of appointments with either a perinatologist or an Ob doctor. Our fertility doctors will continue monitoring you and work very closely with your local doctor during these 12 weeks. They are also available for a free consultation any time after that.

If you choose to the option of being monitored by a local OBGYN for the first seven days of your IVF treatments, our low cost IVF packages start around $8,199 and include airfare for two and hotel stay.

  1. do you have clinics that would do IVF for women over 50 using their own eggs with a surrogate carrier.

    • Savana, do you have eggs or embryos that you froze earlier in your life? It is quite rare that advance age patients (fertility patients over 40) can use their own eggs. We had a few patients who were 42 years old and produced enough eggs. However, again this is not common. Additionally, in order to avoid birth defects associated with advance age fertility patient, our clinics require our patients to have PGD done on their embryos.

      Savana, here is a link to our website where you can learn more about ovarian reserve testing (click on the link to be redirected to the page). It is possible for women who are in their mid 40’s to have great eggs, but it is a bit rare.

      Savana, we hope we answered your questions, given the limited information you have provided here. If we didn’t answer your question and if you need additional information, please give us a call, or email us, and we will be happy to assist you further.

  2. I am 56 and i need IVF with donor eggs in India. Please give me an idea of price and how long it takes also where to stay. Thank you.

    • Nai, thank you for your note! MedVacation does not work with any IVF clinics in India. India it is too far away from the US and there are excellent clinics much closer to us.

      Nai, I recommend you do some research and find out a good clinic in India. You can reach out to those clinics directly.

      We are sorry we couldn’t be of more help to you!

      We wish you all the best and hope your dream of having a baby will come true soon!
