Yes, it is true that the IVF treatment is expensive and most of the insurance companies do not cover it in many countries. There are a few techniques which might help you to reduce the IVF treatment costs.
- IUI: This is the process which does not require any surgical invasion. Intrauterine insemination helps many couples to get pregnant naturally. In this process, the sperms are injected directly in the uterus in order to help the woman pregnancy naturally. This process is quite inexpensive with the actual cost of Rs. 20,000.
- Avoid TESA: Testicular sperm Aspiration is a surgical technique of collecting sperms. It can cost up to Rs. 100,000 which further adds up your cost of IVF treatment of Rs. 200,000. Instead of TESA, you can take the help of a sperm donor who will just charge Rs. 20,000 for assisting with the IVF treatment.
- Tube reversal: When there is blocked or damaged fallopian tubes, you can consider this option which is quite economical, effective and help you to get pregnant naturally. In this process, the damaged or blocked fallopian tube is cut out and reattached to the uterus in order to have a smooth flow of ovaries. The entire process can cost up to Rs. 100,000.
- Don’t wait: Waiting, thinking and consider options other than IVF treatment can ultimately increase cost and possibilities of failure for the IVF treatment. All you need is to rush to the fertility expert after one year of marriage when you are below 30 years and you need to rush immediately after marriage when you are 40 years or above. The later the costlier your IVF treatment will be.
