The Ultimate Guide to In Vitro Fertilization in Cabo San Lucas

Find affordable doctors in Mexico and consider in vitro fertilization in Cabo San Lucas.

Many couples have fertility problems: they may have difficulty conceiving because the woman’s fallopian tubes are blocked (and can’t be opened via surgery), or they may have ovulatory disorders or the partner may have a low sperm count or even sperm with low motility. Sometimes there may be no definitive reason for the lack of conception by natural means.

In vitro fertilization, popularly called IVF, offers hope to numerous childless couples and enables them to have their own babies. More than five million babies have already been born through this procedure alone. IVF is now only one part of ART (assisted reproductive techniques) those are in use thanks to modern medicine.

Why consider in vitro fertilization in Cabo San Lucas?

IVF is an expensive procedure. Some insurance companies and governments may pay for a few cycles of treatment, but they don’t pay beyond a certain limit. There are also plenty of riders and restrictions when you use these funds. If you are desperate to have a baby, then Cabo San Lucas can help you conceive at affordable rates, even if you have to go through many cycles of treatment.

Besides it a beautiful holiday destination in any case. It attracts millions of tourists from all over the globe, more so from the U.S. and Canada thanks to its crystal clear waters, water sports, champion golf courses, natural attractions and tourist facilities. It is also a premier medical tourist destination with excellent medical services. Mexico is a particularly popular option with American medical tourists because it is so convenient.

Why can’t you simply book on your own?

IVF is a delicate and complex procedure and it also has an emotional component. In any case you actually want to maximize your chances of success because all in vitro procedures are not successful. It is wiser not to take a chance with such an important procedure and book into a clinic where you have no idea of how qualified and experienced the doctors actually are.

When you book through Medical Departures, you are certain that we have put our homework in place before listing any clinic or hospital on our website. We check out the credentials, qualification, training and experience of the doctors, make sure that the staff is skilled and that the amenities and equipment available are up to date. This provides you with an additional safety feature.

How long does in vitro fertilization take and is there any downtime associated with it?

IVF is a process that consists of a cycle of treatment. Firstly your natural hormones are suppressed, then you are given fertility drugs so that you produce more eggs. During the entire process you are closely monitored. Once the eggs mature, they are harvested from you. Around that time, your partner has to give sperm. The eggs and sperm are then mixed together and left to incubate for a few days. The resulting embryos are checked out and a few (usually two or three) are implanted in the uterus. Once implantation is successful, the pregnancy should proceed normally. Any extra embryos may be frozen so that you don’t have to go through the whole process again in case the first cycle is not successful. Even if it is successful, the extra embryos can be kept for a future pregnancy.

While you really don’t require a downtime, you do need to stay in the country for between 14 and 17 days for one cycle. About three to four days after implantation, you should be able to go back home. If you cannot stay away for that long a period, then you can start the fertility treatment where you are and then go the Cabo San Lucas for the egg retrieval, IVF and implantation, that would necessitate a stay of three to five days.

What is the cost of in vitro fertialization?

In vitro fertilization is an expensive process due to the medicines and the constant monitoring involed, including blood tests and ultrasound. Treatment for one cycle alone will range from US$ 10,000 and US$ 20,000. In Cabo San Lucas you have a starting rate of US$ 3,500, a small fraction of the cost of similar procedure in your home country.
