Researching Online about IVF Doctor & Treatment

Before you look out for IVF treatment options, it is always better to start researching online to understand the IVF process in platforms to get a feel of the cost, procedure, the facility as well as risk and side effects of IVF. IVF treatment requires lot of time and frequent visits. It is better that we opt for hospital rather than clinics as hospitals have more capital and better facilities than clinics.  

Location of the IVF Facility

IVF treatment generally requires very frequent visit to the Hospitals at least 5-6 times over a two week period before the egg retrieval. Even patients who are not doing an IVF cycle requires 1-2 visits per week for ultrasound or procedures. So the IVF facility should be near to your residence.

Understanding the IVF Cost Structure

The IVF cost depends on several factors that involves the woman’s age and the amount of medication. The IVF cost can also vary whether additional procedures like intra-cytoplasmic sperm injections(ICSI) are needed or not and the women uses her own egg or donor’s egg.

Type of Technology Used

While deciding on the clinic, please make sure that they are using technologies like pre-implantation genetic screening(PGCS) and cryo-preservation(freezing) of embryos. Also ensure that the facility grow embryos out to the blastocyst stage(between 5 and 6 days after fertilisation) which is supposed to have high success rates.

Choosing the Right IVF Doctor

When you choose a facility, it is important to ensure that the doctors are on medical board and certified. Ensure that the IVF doctor is certified by ICMR(Indian council of medical research board). Also find out whether the practitioner has gone for advanced training or fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility.

Additional Services

Most hospitals offer counselling service to help couples deal with the stress and emotional ups and down of the IVF treatment. Be sure to ask about mind/body services like acupuncture, yoga, massage, meditation etc.

Infertility treatments can be a stressful experience and are emotionally taxing. Therefore, choosing and opting for the right IVF specialist can make the journey smoother.
