The Cost of Removing Uterine Fibroids

If your doctor recommends you have a surgery to remove your uterine fibroids, the cost of the removal with our overseas IVF clinic is $2,800. We also want to point out that the relationship between uterine fibroids and infertility remains quite a controversial topic. Data from several recent studies does not support myomectomy in women with small-to-moderate uterine fibroids prior to IVF treatments, regardless of fibroids’ location. Our fertility doctors will need to see a medical report indicating the location of your fibroids and their size, before they can determine whether it is necessary for your fibroids to be removed. We recommend you send us your ultrasound. You can either make a copy of the CD and mail it to us or transfer the file via Skype.

Call us today to schedule a free telephone consultation with a fertility specialist to discuss your fibroid situation.

One Fertility Patient’s IVF Experience Abroad

Tune in tomorrow, February 27th, to hear about one fertility patient’s IVF experience abroad. She is going to share her IVF testimonials on a radio show and you will have a chance to dial in to ask questions.

ivf-abroad-story-testimonialHere is a brief udpate on what has transpired this week. Two doctors did the procedure on Monday morning. Rebecca told us that both fertility specialists were very nice. They explained the whole procedure (embryo transfer), as it went along. One of them even drove them back to the hotel so they didn’t have to take a cab.

Prior to the transfer, the IVF doctors told Rebecca that they and the embryologist had discussed the quantity they would recommend to transfer and would freeze the rest (MedVacation clinic uses Vitrification process for freezing eggs and embryos).

The day of her embryo transfer, Rebecca was prescribed bed rest. Her IVF doctor told her she could go see a movie in the afternoon the following day (Tuesday). She returned home on Wednesday. IVF patients may travel by plane 36 hours after embryo transfer was performed. Air travel does not pose any danger to pregnancy as long as constant air pressure is maintained. Modern airplanes, as a rule, don’t have sudden air pressure changes.
