In-Vitro fertilization or IVF is the most popular form of assisted reproduction technique around the world to treat infertility.
The IVF procedure involves combining concentrated eggs and sperm outside the body in the laboratory.
Once the embryo develops after fertilization then it is placed inside the uterus. The procedure could be done using the parents’ own egg or sperm or that of a donor.
IVF is a completely safe but complicated procedure. In most cases, it takes more than one attempt to be successful.
In this article we are going to discuss the various aspects of IVF treatment; like availability, viability, and IVF treatment cost; especially in the city of Gurugram and nearby regions.
Is IVF inaccessible and costly?
Infertility is not a much talked about subject, especially in our country, where it might be considered taboo in many parts. Also, there is a lack of awareness about the treatment options outside the well-educated populace. Infertility treatments are still considered advanced medical practices and remain inaccessible to most of the country, as infrastructure and expertise for infertility treatments are mostly found in big cities.
All of these factors cause the cost of IVF treatment to remain comparatively higher in India. It has still lowered considerably during the last few years in cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Gurugram, etc. with rapid advancement in medical technology and with more and more hospitals adding infertility treatment to their repertoire.
- Here are some salient facts related to the cost of IVF treatment in our country:
Every IVF treatment is different and varies from person to person depending on their condition. Thus, the cost of treatment varies too. The minimum cost for IVF treatment in a major city like Gurgaon falls in the range of 70,000-1,00,000 INR. The total cost of the procedure can balloon up in the range of 1.25 to 3 lakhs with the added cost of consultation, medication, counseling, etc.
Also, IVF may take two or three attempts to succeed which multiplies its cost.
IVF treatment also varies with hospitals. Gurugram has emerged as a hub for major private hospital chains in the country which while providing the best infrastructure and facilities, also charge exorbitant prices for every kind of treatment.
