IVF was the first pioneering treatment giving childless couples the chance to conceive. Almost 40 years on and it is still a popular fertility treatment and many people are taking the opportunity to have their treatment abroad, spurred on by cheaper prices, and the opportunity to combine a holiday with their procedure. This is not a bad idea as some couples have said that being relaxed has helped them to become pregnant.

Why should I get In Vitro fertilization in Seoul?

South Korea is a technologically advanced country – it is one of the few countries in the world that has high-speed internet everywhere. Samsung, that well-known technology giant, is from here and Seoul, the capital city is modern and thriving with all the facilities and services you would expect and need.

Before any infertility treatment it is important to find out why you are unable to conceive. Sometimes it may be due to the man; sometimes the woman and sometimes no cause can be found. In Seoul you are assured of being given comprehensive tests to ascertain what the problem is, and after diagnosis commencing with the appropriate treatment.

Traveling overseas for medical and surgical treatments is becoming increasingly commonplace. The world is a much smaller place nowadays and many modern travelers do not think of traveling far afield as anything out-of-the-ordinary or exotic, and it is apparent to anyone that has visited far-flung locations that amenities and services often stand up well to scrutiny.

Obviously, this depends on where you go, but certainly somewhere like Seoul is not some quiet backwater in the middle of nowhere. Healthcare facilities, doctor training and expertise are on a par with what you would expect at home, but we always maintain you should do your own homework before you take the plunge.

To this extent, Medical Departures has already done this. We’re aware that anyone traveling overseas is at a disadvantage as they can’t ask friends, family or neighbors if they have experience of a particular doctor, which is what normally happens at home.

So, we have got together as much information as we can, so you can make the judgment call yourself. We assess all our clinics before we list them, paying onsite visits, checking real patient reviews, verifying qualifications and confirming professional memberships, for instance with international organizations. Only if we’re happy are they listed, along with high-definition photos and other info that you can see for yourself.

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

As we’re dealing with living processes here it’s not always easy to give an exact answer for how long it takes – for some it may be as quick as 7 days; for others a few weeks. Each cycle of in vitro fertilization involves 5 main steps:

1: Medication

Medication is administered to stimulated egg production and blood tests and scans used to monitor the ovaries.

2: Egg Collection

A minor surgical procedure is used to collect eggs once they have developed.

3: Sperm Collection

A sperm sample is collected from the male.

4: Insemination

Insemination is the process where the sperm and eggs are combined in the laboratory. They are then kept at ideal conditions and monitored closely until fertilization takes place.

5: Transfer Embryos

The fertilized eggs (embryos) are transferred into the female 3-5 days after fertilization.
