Infertility Treatment for International Patients in India-2018 Crossing Oceans and Mountains for a Baby


Infertility Treatment for International Patients in India • Due to the top-quality treatment with a high success rate at affordable costs, many international patients are preferring India for their IVF treatments. Unlike the laws in other countries, Indian regulations are favorable for the patients and this makes India the favorite destination for couples with infertility issues.


• Mr. Darwin* arrives at New Delhi Airport with his wife. They look like the normal tourists who are en route to visit the Taj Mahal. But they are actually on a very different purpose – for the infertility treatment . They visited a few fertility specialists, zeroed in one specialist, got their treatment done and left India in a couple of weeks with the embryo placed safely placed inside Mrs. Darwin.


‘Fertility Tourism’ • This is generally known as ‘Fertility Tourism’ where people visit other countries for infertility treatments, to obtain donors or to find options for surrogacy. There are many people like the Darwins who are coming to India to find the means to conceive a baby and there is a recent increase in the infertility treatment for international patients in India. • India is well-known for its medical treatments related to infertility for decades going way back to 1978 when the world’s second test tube baby was born in India just 67 days after the first test baby was born in England.


Why Are Foreigners Flocking India For Infertility Treatments? • Affordability The treatment costs in India are much lesser than in most countries and that is one strong reason that motivates people to cross oceans and mountains for their fertility treatments. The average treatment cost for IVF in the US is around Rs. 11,10,000 and in the UK, it is around Rs. 8,50,000 while in India, it is around Rs. 4,00,000 including the medicine costs. Even if we factor in the cost of the stay and the travel, the total money they spend for their treatment in India is far lesser than what they have to spend in their own country.


• Shorter waiting periods In a few developed nations, there are long waiting periods of months or even years to get a donor for a sperm or an egg as it is very difficult to find one. But in India, it is very easy to find a donor egg or a donor sperm within a short time so infertility treatment for international patients get done faster in India. In some countries, there is a month long waiting period even to get an appointment to see a fertility specialist which is not the case in India where you can get an appointment in a day or two. Some specific hospitals have separate fertility tourism options through which infertility treatment for international patients can be arranged and made ready beforehand even before they land in India


• No stringent laws In many countries, the government has a strong hold on who can and can’t conceive, and how they should or shouldn’t get a baby, influencing the personal decisions of their citizens in having a family. In some countries, the ethnicity of the donors will be closely matched with the recipient and sometimes if they do not match, the person can even be denied the sperm or egg by the hospital. In India, there are no such restrictions on the donor and it depends purely on the choice of the doctor.
