How much will a second IVF cycle cost ?


Patients are getting better informed about IVF, and they realise that IVF doesn't have a hundred percent success rate. They know that they need to go through 2-3 cycles before they succeed, and because IVF is so expensive, they're very worried about how much the second and the third cycle will cost.

It’s important to ask these questions upfront , because many doctors will give discounts for the second and third cycle.

Some will offer packages for three cycles, and give a reduced rate for the subsequent cycles.

We offer a shared risk program, which means if you don't get pregnant in 4 cycles , we return all your money back to you.

Also, do remember that second cycles are usually much less expensive because we often  have been able to freeze embryos for you in your first cycle , and transferring frozen embryos after thawing them is much less expensive and much easier , you don't need to take any injections at all for superovulation.

IVF patients and doctor shopping


Many IVF patients doctor-shop, but you need to understand the difference between cost , price and value so you can do this intelligently.

IVF patients are often very confused about the costs of an IVF cycle. Obviously , they want to save money , and they read all these full page ads, which talk about how an IVF cycle costs only Rs 25000 ! They are happy to sign up , because that's an amount they can afford.

However, they actually start the treatment, they end up spending more like Rs 200000, because the doctors keep on upselling them !

Sadly, IVF clinics aren't usually honest or transparent about the charges. They advertise a particular cost, but the final price which the patient ends up paying is a lot more , because there are all kinds of add- ons.  This is why patients often get sticker-shock when they need to pay the bill . The “take-home baby price” is far more than they had budgeted for !

IVF clinics know that after the patient has started the cycle, they are stuck and cannot back out. Doctors keep upselling and adding lots of new procedures. They convince the patient to buy this by claiming that these will improve their chances of success. This means patients end up forking out much more than they expected !

To add insult to injury, they don't get value for what they're spending ! These clinics don’t bother to even provide photos of the embryos to their patients, which is why the pregnancy rates in these clinics is exceptionally low. This means the cost of a baby is much higher for the poor patient, who ends up paying through her nose – a little at a time !

Price vs Value for IVF patients


Most IVF patients want the cheapest possible IVF treatment.

They naively assume that all IVF doctors are equally good, and that success rates are high in all IVF clinics. They are basically looking for a bargain, which is why they go doctor-shopping , and hunt for the cheapest IVF clinic.

Doctors are smart, and many  IVF clinics take advantage of this bargain hunting mentality of ignorant patients, who can’t look beyond the price.

They buy full page ads, and sponsored slots on TV talk shows. Their focus is on highlighting how affordable and cheap they are. They also offer all kinds of bargains and discounts to pure patient in, because they know that once the patient has started a treatment cycle, they cannot back out and are trapped.

Please remember that someone needs to pay for these expensive ads – and you are the sucker !

These ads are very misleading , because they lure patients in by quoting a low sticker price , and then add all kinds of add-ons once the treatment has started.

Smart patients don’t focus on only the price, but try to assess the value the clinic offers. This depends on the success rate of the clinic and how well they will take care of you, so please don't get fooled !

Why do some doctors insist on doing a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy before an IVF treatment ?


Many IVF patients are advised to do a hysteroscopy and/or a laparoscopy before starting IVF treatment.

Now, this makes a lot of sense for the doctor because they can charge for every surgical procedure - and the more the procedures they do, the more the money they make. But the reality is that most of these operations are completely uncalled for, and they need to be used very selectively. Thus, it may make sense to do a hysteroscopy in case the ultrasound shows that you have a polyp, but if your vaginal ultrasound scan shows your endometrium is normal, then there's no justification to subjecting you to this surgery.

Yes, the doctor will claim it's a "minor procedure", but for a patient, every procedure is major. And remember that nothing in life is risk-free !

And definitely don't do let the doctor do a laparoscopy , because there's nothing in a laparoscopy which will change the IVF treatment plan. Yes, some doctors will clip a large hydrosalpinx if you have this, but again, this should not be done on a routine basis. And if your doctor insists that you have this surgery done before doing IVF for you, this is a red flag and you should find a better doctor.

How IVF doctors buy fame !


Patients are often not sure which IVF clinic to choose.

This is an expensive decision, and they know a lot depends on it.

Most of them naively assume that all IVF clinics are equally good. This is why they will select one using the following criteria:

  1. the nearest one;
  2. the cheapest one;
  3. the one their GP refers them to;
  4. the one their friend has told them about;
  5. the one which advertises;
  6. the one which offers free medical camps for infertile couples
Many select a clinic based on its brand name – what they think of as a famous and renowned clinic.

Sadly, the truth is a lot of these clinics purchase their renown – they don’t earn it because of their professional expertise !

They do this either by buying advertisements; or buying editorial space in newspapers, by hiring a PR agency, which ensures that their press releases are published in the media.

Today, unfortunately, everything in India - especially the media and the news - whether it's a TV channel or a newspaper - is up for sale.

This means that IVF clinics whose only focus is on making money will actually spend a lot of money on these activities, because it helps them to attract more patients.

The ethical doctors who take pride in their professional skills refuse to stoop to these low levels, which means they depend purely on their patient’s goodwill and word of mouth to attract more patients. This is a much slower process !

Corporate IVF clinics hire full time PR agents to make sure that their doctors keep on appearing on TV channels as well as newspapers. And the poor patients get fooled ! They are featured not because they’re good but  because they're paying for being featured !

How Work from home will help make IVF treatment easier for infertile women


One of the impacts of the Coronavirus epidemic has been the reality that most people don't need to go to work daily ! Many executives can work effectively from home.

This is great news for women who want to plan their families, and not sacrifice having a baby at the altar of their career.

One of the problems with working in a high pressure corporate job was that when you wanted to have a baby and needed to take IVF treatment, it was very hard to take leave.

You had to get all kinds of permissions, and you had to explain to your boss why you were going to be absent.

Many managers were very reluctant to give this permission , because they felt that it would detract from your work, and affect their productivity.

Also, many women were reluctant to ask. They wanted to keep their infertility issue private and confidential, and weren’t comfortable sharing this with HR !

Also, they were worried that this absence would affect their chances of getting promoted, which is why they had to choose between  either sacrificing their career, or putting their baby-making plans on hold – at the cost of their fertility .

However, now that working from home is going to become mainstream, a lot of women can have their cake and eat it too !

They can plan their life the way they want to - and this flexibility is very helpful, because biology is no longer the sole determinant of your fertility !

How IVF patients can keep themselves safe from COVID-19


 Now that the lockdown is gradually being lifted up and IVF clinics are starting to offer treatment, a lot of IVF patients are wondering whether it's safe for them to go for IVF treatment.

There are two things you need to keep in mind.

One is that your risk of getting a coronavirus infection is extremely low because you're young, healthy, and asymptomatic, so please don't get paranoid !

Just take sensible precautions when you're traveling and you'll be absolutely fine.

I think it's also important that you choose the right IVF clinic !

Remember that standalone IVF clinics which only treat IVF patients are much safer for you, as compared to IVF clinics which are part of a large hospital which also treat COVID patients because your risk of getting infected inadvertently - either from the patients or from the staff - is that much higher.

We look forward to helping you to have a baby !
