The IVF Protocol is an individually selected scheme of administrating of medications that stimulate the woman’s ovulation process.
Usually, during one cycle one egg matures in a woman's body. The injected drugs are aimed to stimulate the ovaries, which allows to get a large number of eggs.
Protocols are divided into several types depending on the doses and time of taking medications:
Before IVF, both partners undergo a thorough examination, as well as treatment (conservative or surgical), if necessary.
The analysis of blood, hormones, ultrasound, examinations of related specialists – an oncologist, mammologist, therapist.
Many patients wonder how much artificial insemination costs (including IVF with the donor’s cells), even at the stage of choosing the clinic that they are planning to contact. Let's take a closer look at what makes up the price of the procedure.
High-tech IVF infertility treatment requires the use of modern sophisticated equipment (incubators, workstations, microscopes), expensive supplies, as well as the involvement of highly qualified specialists. The cost of all these components directly affects the price of in vitro fertilization.
Our ultimate goal is the birth to a healthy baby, and we know for sure that skimp on embryological equipment is impossible, since the results of the procedure largely depend on high accuracy and reliability. If the cost of in vitro fertilization at the medical center is underestimated, this is a reason to think about whether the treatment will be effective.
Entering the IVF program, you can specify the cost of the procedure with your doctor only after a thorough diagnosis. First, you need to identify all the reasons underlying the decline of fertility, i.e. examination and analysis for IVF are mandatory. Only after that the fertility specialist will develop the optimal treatment regimen according to your case.
For example, if a serious male factor is present, ICSI might be recommended, in some cases it will be necessary to perform preimplantation diagnostics - all these manipulations, of course, affect the price of in vitro fertilization. So, the cost of an IVF program with donor genetic material will be higher than in the case of using patients’ own oocytes or sperm.
In addition, the cost of IVF may depend on the ovulation stimulation scheme, which involves the use of hormonal drugs. So, for example, if there is no need for superovulation induction, the IVF price will be lower. However, you should understand that the choice of a program is always based on medical indications and should be optimal in terms of effectiveness.
The price of IVF in Moscow clinics may vary depending on the center of reproduction chosen by the fertility specialist, the specialist chooses it on the basis of examination, treatment regimen and the need for additional manipulations.
