The cost of conception

The cost of conception : "Physicians describe infertility as an epidemic, growing as more women choose to delay childbirth. More than 7.3 million Americans, or 1 in 8 women of childbearing age, had trouble getting pregnant or carrying a baby to term in 2002, the most recent data available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That's a jump of nearly 20 percent over 1995. About 1 percent of American babies born each year had help from in vitro fertilization, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine says. The percentage could be a lot higher. An estimated 50 percent to 80 percent of infertile couples never seek medical care because they can't afford it. Without coverage, one round of in vitro fertilization costs an average of $12,440, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine says. And, on average, women need two to three cycles to become pregnant."
This is why so many couples from the US come to India for IVF treatment. The cost of an IVF cycle in our clinic is only US $ 3500 - about one-fourth of that in the US - and our success rates are even better !
