How to choose the best fertility specialist from your city?

Assisted reproductive technology has gone through a sea of change in the last 20 years in India. Today, lot of IVF clinics have mushroomed across India, trying to make a quick buck out of the demand for having babies. This was not the case 25 years back, at that time many reproductive technology companies selling IVF lab equipments would comment - Already India is known for its population explosion - Worlds second most populated country, Will test tube baby and the science to delievr it, work here in India?

Today the infertility treatment is growing at the pace of 20% each year. There is a huge demand for the following in India..

  • Egg Donor Program
  • Paid Egg Donor
  • Gestational Surrogacy Program
  • Infertility Testing & Diagnosis
  • IVF - In-Vitro Fertilization
  • PGD
  • LGBT Fertility
  • Male Infertility
  • Egg Freezing
  • Fertility Preservation

Now Reproductive medicine is regulated by Indian Government and by Indian Society of Assisted reproduction. Still there are some clinics in India those who flout the rules. Nonetheless, failures can occur. If you're considering a fertility clinic to help you conceive, IVF experts suggest some strategies to improve your odds of a good outcome:

1. Do some online research.
Not all fertility clinics are alike. Your local fertility clinic may not be the best IVF clinic center around or the IVF doctor there may not be the best fertility specialist. It's worth doing your homework. Look for Success rate - ISAR has the data of all the IVF clinics in India , no cycles they do in year etc.

2. Dont be Shy
Ask how many assisted reproductive procedures the facility does. Volume can matter in IVF. In many areas of surgery, volume is a sign of expertise. It's not a hard-and-fast rule, but it is a consideration when evaluating program quality." Inquire about how many procedures the facility does each year.

3. Be upfront but with a positve attitude
Have a conversation on - How experienced are the providers, how well-trained are they and how long have they been there? As with other fields of medicine, experience matters in reproductive medicine. Experience is a combination of knowledge and wisdom, and like good wine that takes time to gain. Generally a fertility specialist has around 25 years of experience in the field of infertility.

4. Affordable IVF clinics versus Value for money fertility treatment
Consider what you're getting for your money. Price is always a consideration, but you should also weigh what you get for your money. It is not about the cheapest infertility treatment, it is about what you're getting for your money and that's a value proposition. If you spend 25 percent more for a 50 percent higher pregnancy rate, that could be a better deal for you. Look for clinics that can offer the latest treatments and these would include blastocyst transfer, preimplantation genetic screening of embryos and single embryo transfer. Good IVF clinics and fertility specialists with high success rates may cost more up front but may get you pregnant faster and at a lower cost in the long run instead of paying for multiple IVF cycles.

5. Join a support group.
For people with fertility challenges, the quest to have a child is a journey. In a support group men and women typically grapple with psychological and physiological issues, and being part of a support group can help with both. One of the reasons people drop out of fertility treatment is because it's too stressful. Being part of a support group can reduce that stress. Voicing your experience with other people who are facing the same challenges will decrease the level of anxiety and distress associated with the process.
