In Vitro Fertilization in Mexico

The Ultimate Guide to In Vitro Fertilization in Mexico

IVF Treatment in Mexico is a choice more and more Americans and Canadians are making to receive considerable savings on the costs at home.

IVF (in vitro fertilization) is a form of assisted reproductive technology (ART), or fertility treatment, which involves combining eggs and sperm to fertilization outside the body, and then placing it in the uterus if any embryo forms.

When you consider that, according to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the average cost of one IVF cycle in the US is more than $12,400, it is little wonder that people are looking to save costs.

IVF is complex, and something not to be undertaken lightly. There is no guarantee that it will be effective, and it may take several cycles before a pregnancy results. Success rates vary from clinic to clinic in the US and Canada, as well as Mexico, but traveling abroad doesn’t make the process any riskier. In fact, in some instances it may actually help to relax by being on holiday.

What is the procedure for IVF, and how long does it take?

You will need to spend between 7 and 10 days in Mexico for your IVF treatment, in order to complete the five steps needed in the treatment cycle.

1: Medication

Medication is given to stimulate egg production, with blood tests and ultrasounds taken to monitor the ovaries for development of eggs.

2: Egg Collection

A minor surgical procedure is used to collect the eggs.

3: Sperm Collection

A sperm sample is collected from the male

4: Combine sperm and eggs in the laboratory

This process is called insemination, after which the combined eggs and sperm are stored under ideal lab conditions to encourage fertilization. The eggs are monitored closely for signs of cell division, when fertilization is deemed to have occurred.

5: Fertilized eggs, now called embryos, are transferred to the uterus 3-5 days after fertilization.
