Travelling abroad for fertility treatment
When you are diagnosed with infertility there is an overwhelming feeling that you are no longer in control, the reality is in fact the complete opposite.
Find the best clinic for you
Depending on where you live, most infertility patients are likely to be self-funded. If this is the case, then you are very much in charge of your own destiny, but are then faced with the daunting task of selecting the best clinic for treatment.
The three main considerations when choosing the right clinic for your treatment are usually success rates, cost and accreditation.
IVF is an expensive procedure, but lower cost treatment is a false economy if the success rates of the clinic are low, you’ll end up paying for more that one cycle!
Look at success rates for your chosen clinic and compare it to other clinics. Also look at the wider picture, perhaps if you travelled outside your home country you can combine a holiday and have IVF treatment at the same time.
By looking at international clinics, you can also see higher success rates, increasing your chance of success and make some serious cost savings, especially for USA patients.
If you are considering going abroad for IVF then choose a clinic with an internationally recognised accreditation for assurance on patient safety standards and laboratory standards.
Finally, chose a clinic that speaks your language, you want to understand every step of the process and not be confused if the clinic are speaking to you in a language you are not familiar with.
