The IVF Treatment cost in India or anywhere else in the world generally depends on the infertility workup. Therefore, it may vary from person to person. If your friend or relative was lucky enough to have a baby by going through two IVF cycles, you may be fortunate by conceiving in one IVF cycle itself. Or perhaps a simple laparoscopy procedure might be enough to cure your infertility. The IVF cost in India or around the world is rising up as a more and more modern diagnostic test, and treatment methods are being used to aid and facilitate infertility treatments cost. Because of this, there is no upper limit to the amount of money one can invest in their quest for a child.
According to several online sources, the cost of IVF in India varies greatly by city.

Similar to the other fertility based clinics in foreign countries, when quoting IVF costs to patients, clinics in India offer pricing for a very basic, no-frills IVF cycle that doesn’t include many things that may indeed be required in order to do the IVF treatment. Most basic IVF packages include egg retrieval, sperm preparation, conventional IVF fertilization, and one fresh IVF transfer. These services alone don’t support a viable IVF cycle for many patients. Fertility medications, monitoring, and retrieval anesthesia are necessary for most if not all patients, and there’s often an extra fee associated with each.
|Assisted Hatching||For Some||20,000|
|Preimplantation Genetic Testing||For Some||2,00,000|
Most low-cost IVF programs require you be out of the country or away from your home and job for the entirety of the IVF treatment (estimated 3-7 weeks). So, there is the actual cost of travel (airplane), lodging, and meals, but also the added inconvenience of a longer stay, missed work, and safety during your stay. Some cities in India are not as safe as others, which should also be a consideration when choosing a destination for treatment. And since IVF isn’t always successful the first go around, it may take more than one trip abroad to bring home a baby. Depending on where you’re traveling from in the U.S. and to in India, travel costs can range quite a bit. Whether you’ll be staying in a hotel or renting another longer-term lodging also will affect the cost. Medical visas are only around $100 per person.
