IVF treatment: Five tips to choose the right clinic

When a couple considers to opt for an IVF treatment, it’s obvious they would want to have the best for a successful treatment. It’s always good to take a little extra care by researching about the clinic as it is your first step towards parenthood. You may also ask your family doctor or gynaecologist for some recommendations or any family member who has gone through an IVF treatment.

However, finding the right IVF clinic might not be that easy. It is not just about finding the fertility centre that has a track record of successful treatments, you should be able to share your problems openly, the centre should have efficient administration, distinct process and pricing, and provide you with strong emotional support as well. Here are 5 tips you can keep in mind before you choose the right IVF clinic:

1. Complete knowledge about the clinic

Not all IVF clinics are the same. Even if it is considered one of the best, do your own research before opting for it. One of the important things is you should check if it is recognized by the Government and has an ISO 9001 certification. This information might be available on their website too. Next, you can check their IVF experts’ experience and qualification.

2. Age and success

The longer the existence of the clinic, more the patients would have shared their success stories. It’s all about experience. Success rates might depend on a number of factors such as the expertise, technological advancements, etc. Every clinic has its own success rates, but you should know that there is nothing such as a 100% success rate.

3. Counselling sessions

Dealing with fertility issues brings along emotional trauma and stress to many couples. Besides clinical competency, also ensure the clinic has a counselling team and services available. While most of the centres offer these services for free, spending extra bucks for additional counselling sessions shouldn’t be counted as a privileged expenditure. Emotional and mental wellbeing might take you a mile ahead in your journey to become a parent.

4. Latest technology and intensive training

While you are giving parenthood a second chance, you’d not want to compromise on any aspect that might lower your chances. One of the most important aspects to it being in the hands of an experienced team. While researching about the right IVF centre, study the clinical team and check their training from the centre’s website or brochures, in the field of fertility and assisted reproductive techniques.

Memberships in various associations, experience in conferences, workshops and training also add up in their merit. Make sure the centre is well equipped with the latest technology and reproductive techniques to provide you the best results.

5. Cost of the treatment

Cost is one of the factors every couple/individual will consider. Make sure you know all the hidden costs of the treatment. Sometimes, you might require extra medical care, tests and sessions which get decided as the treatment progresses. Make sure you discuss the additional costs with the centre’s administration to plan your budget in advance.

You can consider the above mentioned tips while choosing an IVF clinic for you. Most of the people don’t realise the sheer amount of time it takes. Therefore, it is advised to clear all your doubts before moving forward with the treatment to ensure a comfortable journey to parenthood.
