IVF Clinics in US Use the Same Process Used by Our IVF Clinics Abroad

Our website states that IVF treatments with MedVacation’s fertility clinics abroad take, on average, 18 days, if the patient commences her treatments with our clinic on Cycle Day 1. Some of our clients told us that their local IVF clinics in the U.S. average 37 days from start to implantation (3 day on birth control, 5-10 days on Lupron, ultra sound, stimulation med 9-13 days, 1.5 later egg retrieval, 3-5 day transfer = 37 days). We would like to explain the IVF process and demonstrate to you that your local IVF clinic uses the same process used by our overseas IVF clinics.

IVF clinics in US, conception process, low cost ivf abroad, fertility tourism, ivf vacation, ivf tourismThe answer to this question is actually remarkably simple – your local IVF clinics in the U.S. perform egg retrieval during certain time of the month and sync up their patients’ menstrual cycles with clinics’ retrieval schedules. Since these clinics perform egg retrieval on certain days, they time IVF cycles by putting patients on birth control and/or Lupron.

Moreover, in addition to being used by IVF doctors for timing the egg retrieval day, Lupron is also taken during the IVF cycle. It is used to decrease the level of LH hormone women make for a short time and to prevent ovulation. This LH surge happens when the ovaries release the eggs, or ovulate, before the desired time or before the time of the egg retrieval. Therefore, you can add days on Lupron to your IVF cycle days rather than count those consecutively.

Our IVF clinics perform egg retrieval every day, even on weekends, if necessary. Therefore, we typically don’t put patients on OCP, but have done so in the past if they wanted to have egg retrieval on certain day. Here is a link to our page that talks about typical IVF cycle.

It may also be helpful to understand the process of natural conception. Think about your IVF cycle as natural conception process aided by our fertility specialists.
