Cost of IVF in Ukraine

Today, IVF is the most effective method of treating infertility, but unfortunately it does not guarantee 100% successful pregnancy. Statistics shows that at the first attempt pregnancy occurs in 30-50% of cases, and successful fertilization occurs usually with 2-4 attempts. Naturally, every attempt is paid by future parents.

The success of the procedure is influenced by many factors:

  • the age of the woman. The success rate of attempts at the age of 20 to 25 years is about 50%, and at the age of forty - only 15-20%;
  • the reaction of the female body to hormonal stimulation;
  • quality of eggs and spermatozoa;
  • psychological condition of patients.

If the attempt turned out to be unsuccessful, the married couple may refuse further tests to become parents. Or they can use additional techniques of IVR and try again.

Results of IVF

There is no general rule. Everything is extremely individual and is determined by the attending physician, based on the patient's condition. The procedure itself is not dangerous to the female body, and can be repeated several times. In medical practice, it is common for a long-awaited pregnancy to occur from the eighth or even the tenth attempt of IVF.

In order to attract their clients, many clinics reduce the cost of each next attempt, on average, about UAH 1000, so the price of in-vitro fertilization in Ukraine with each new attempt is lower.

Naturally, everything has its own, reasonable limits, and the number of attempts too, but they must be determined by the doctor and patients together, taking into account the specific situation and medical indications. In the case of repeated attempts usually embryos obtained in the past times are used.

But, according to couples who have been through the IVF procedure: the money and time spent can not be compared with the smile of your baby.
