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.

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.
