Does Not Include
The cost quoted above is indicative and should not be taken as the final cost of the surgery. The final cost can be ascertained after the surgeon has evaluated the patient. The cost in Indian Rupees can vary based on exchange rate.
IVF Cost in India starts from US $ 330 and varies depending on your medical history, type and number if interventions required, doctor, facility and the city where you choose to get the treatment done.
Factors that affect IVF Cost in India
An important expense when it comes to your IVF treatment is going to be your doctor’s fees. IndiCure recommends only experienced and skilled IVF experts who are capable of delivering successful results. However, the cost of the procedure varies depending on the experience of the doctor and the approach to treatment.
Egg/Sperm Donation Required
There will be additional costs, if donor eggs or sperm are to be used in your IVF cycle.
This highly specialized procedure is separately charged. In assisted hatching, an embryologist uses micromanipulation techniques under a microscope to create a tiny hole in the zona pellucida, which may encourage implantation.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
ICSI helps with male-factor infertility issues. As this is a separate lab procedure, there are additional costs. In this procedure, a single sperm is injected directly into a mature egg to help fertilization.
Testicular sperm extraction (TESE)
TESE helps with male-factor infertility where no sperm is present in the patient’s ejaculate. It is performed under local anesthetic which allows sperm to be retrieved directly from the testicals. Although it is a minor procedure, there is an additional fee for this procedure.Post-treatment expenses may include medications and follow-up consultations.
Having your IVF treatment in an accredited surgical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility also affects the initial quote. But, IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be all-inclusive and affordable.
We at IndiCure, understand that you travel with a budget in mind and do not like to be greeted by surprises after arrival in India. We thus club all these expenses and give you the package cost that is inclusive and affordable at the same time.
Your case manager shall give you an estimated cost of your surgery after discussing your medical reports with the surgeon. The final cost, however, shall be confirmed after your consultation with the surgeon.

See How It Works
In-vitro Fertilization (IVF)
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is the process of fertilizing a woman’s egg with sperm in a laboratory under controlled conditions, resulting in the development of embryos.
The embryos that result are allowed to mature for 3-5 days before being placed back into your uterus.
For couples who are having difficulty conceiving naturally, IVF is the gold standard.
Infertility is a condition in which a woman is unable to become pregnant after one year of trying or six months if she is over 35. A woman must release an egg that must travel via the fallopian tube to reach the uterus in order to get pregnant. To fertilize the egg, the egg must first encounter a sperm in the uterus, and then the fertilized egg must connect to the inside of the uterus, a process known as implantation. If there is an issue with any of these phases during the course of these events, sterility ensues.
Infertility can be caused by issues with either the male or the female, or both. A third of infertility issues are caused by male fertility issues, another third by female fertility issues, and the remaining one-third is caused by both male and female factors.
Fertility treatment is determined by a number of criteria, including the length of infertility, as well as the age of both the male and woman. In-vitro Fertilization is one of the most common treatment options (IVF).
Monitoring a woman’s ovulatory process, extracting eggs from her ovaries, and allowing sperm to fertilize the ova in a fluid medium in a laboratory are all elements of the IVF method. The zygote that forms inside the fluid medium is subsequently transferred to the uterus in order to start a pregnancy. In 1978, Louise Brown, the first test tube baby, was born.
Summarizing, the various steps of IVF surgery include:
- Stimulation and monitoring the development of eggs in the ovaries
- Egg Retrieval
- Collection of sperms
- Fertilization or combining the sperm and ova in a culture medium for fertilization and early embryo growth.
- Transfer of embryos into uterus
Am I a good Candidate?
In–vitro fertilization can help couples overcome various types of infertility. Suitable candidates for IVF are those who have:
- Age related Infertility
- Cervical mucus problems
- Damaged or Blocked fallopian tubes
- Endometriosis or PCOS
- Poor egg quality
- Genetic diseases
- Low sperm count or other sperm problems
- Male factor infertility
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
- Unexplained infertility
You should also be in good health to be a good candidate for IVF because you must be able to carry a pregnancy once it is established.
How is IUI done?
Ovarian Hyperstimulation and Monitoring the development of eggs in the ovaries:
Long Protocol – Down regulation or Suppression of Pituitary Ovarian Axis: There is suppression of the pituitary ovarian axis by prolonged use of hormone – GnRH agonist. Following downregulation of the pituitary ovarian axis, the ovaries are hyperstimulated using Follicle Stimulating Hormone or FSH after 10 to 14 days. The IVF cycle using this method is known as conventional IVF.
Short Protocol: This part skips the downregulation and a regimen of fertility medications is given to the woman to stimulate development of multiple follicles of ovaries. Injectable gonadotropins, FSH analogues are given under close monitoring.
Once the oocytes are ready to be retrieved, they are collected using ultrasound guided needles. Usually – 8 to 15 eggs are retrieved. After the process, the woman is taken to the recovery room for rest and recovery.
Collection of Sperms
Sperm collection is a simple process. Sometimes surgery is done to collect the sperms when man is incapable of ejaculating the semen.
Once the eggs and semen are retrieved, they are taken to the laboratory to induce fertilization. When a single sperm is injected directly into the egg, the procedure is known as Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection. Following fertilization, the embryos are incubated for several days.
Transfer of Embryos
After a few days, the physician evaluates the embryos and two to four embryos are implanted into the woman’s uterus. The embryos are transferred through the cervix into the uterus using a catheter.
IVF Success Rate
The success rate of IVF worldwide ranges from 20 – 60 % per IVF cycle. However, it is important to note that this in no way can determine how successful your IVF can be.
Besides, talking about IVF success rates can be deceptive, since they do not account for the various factors that can impact the result of IVF in different patients. Therefore, you must ask your IVF doctor about the odds of success in your individual situation rather than relying on overall success percentages.
Few of the factors that affect IVF success rate are:
- Maternal age and health factors
- Uterine lining
- Egg quality
- Sperm quality
- Factors affecting overall bodily health
Besides above, timing of the entire IVF procedure, reasons of infertility, the doctor’s experience and expertise being other important factors.

Frequently Asked Questions
Women in their 20s and early 30s have the best success rates with IVF. Once you approach mid-thirties, chances of success start to dwindle. Age is a more critical determinant for IVF success than FSH levels, according to a fertility study published in 2003 in Fertility and Sterility, and increasing mother age correlates with a lower implantation and pregnancy success rate.
IVF after the age of 40 has a decreased success rate since both egg quantity and quality have often declined by that time. As a result, many fertility clinics set an age limit for IVF treatment. This age limit varies in every clinic, however it is often around 50 years old.
“What if my IVF fails?” most patients wonder. This is a possibility that should be considered because IVF pregnancy is not assured, and success rates in IVF are actually quite low. If this occurs, there are a number of options to consider:
Attempt more IVF rounds
There could be a number of different reasons for IVF failure, and if your doctor can pinpoint one in your instance, it may be addressed in subsequent cycles. Preimplantation genetic testing (PGS) has been shown to improve IVF success, therefore it may be a viable alternative in future cycles.
Using Donor Eggs
In most situations, poor egg quality is the main cause of IVF failure; better eggs from a donor may be recommended, especially if you are over 35 years of age.
Some couples believe they are unable to undergo the IVF process time and again since it puts the mother’s health at risk. You can consider using a surrogate if your IVF failed due to implantation failure. Please note that Surrogacy is not legal in India, so you cannot exercise that option in India.
This is an extremely personal decision, but it’s worth thinking if your doctor says your chances of getting pregnant are slim. If numerous cycles have failed, you may want to explore this since the mental and financial strain can be too much to bear.
While transferring more than one embryo increases the chances of a successful IVF pregnancy, it also increases the risk of a multiple pregnancy. Multiple pregnancies come with a slew of added problems.
The primary goal of IVF treatment is to give you a single, healthy child.
However, each case is unique, and your doctors will consider the risks and benefits of repeated embryo transfer based on your age and health.
Older women may benefit from transferring two embryos rather than one, according to research, because the benefits exceed the dangers. Discuss with your doctor how many embryos to transfer in your IVF cycle based on your specific circumstances.
You have given multiple options for the leftover embryos:
Preserving for future Use:
If you think you’ll want to have more kids in the future but aren’t sure if infertility will again be an issue, you can freeze your embryos and use them later.
Donation of an embryo
You could choose to give your embryos to another couple who is having trouble conceiving. This is a very personal decision, and it’s crucial to think it over well first.
Embryos can be donated to medical research.
Not only may embryos be used to better understand and improve reproductive treatments, but they can also be utilized to better study genetic diseases. This could be extremely beneficial to medical research and treatment.
Embryos to be discarded
Again, this is a decision that should be carefully considered, but if you desire, your reproductive clinic can arrange for proper disposal of any remaining embryos.
IVF demands a significant time and financial commitment; it has an impact on your physical health and may result in emotional turmoil. Before choosing to undertake IVF, it is critical that you learn as much as possible about the treatment.
