  1. Fertility treatment including IVF, Egg Donor and Surrogacy is one of the major focus of medical tourism treatment that we offer to our international clients. We partner only those fertility physicians who are well educated, internationally experienced and understand the requirements of international medical tourists seeking treatment in India.

  2. To be completely honest with you, IVF success rates aren't good. Although I can tell you that we did fall pregnant in our first cycle, this isn't the case for the majority of couples. The older you are, the less likely it is that you will conceive. With regard to women under thirty five the average rate of success is just under 30%. This goes straight down from there to just under one percent for women over 44 years of age. These are harsh statistics. Effectively, what this means is that more than sixty-six per cent of you will not be successful and in the scenario in which you don't have any more embryos you will be requested to withstand the expense and stress of another hormone injection cycle.
