Did you know that India is one of the most popular health tourist destinations for fertility treatment in the world? India boasts numerous super-specialty clinics, possessing exceptionally high standards, and piloted by world-class medical professionals who now agree India is the centralised hub to undergo infertility treatment.
Previously, infertility was looked down upon and those who were unable to conceive were stigmatised. However, this is not the case; to conceive a child, it takes the efforts of both partners in relatively good health to create a baby. Couples who try for more than six months to get pregnant but fail should try IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation) treatments offered by Apollo Hospitals; we can make your dream of having a family come true.
India is now a Leading Healthcare Provider
India possesses an excellent, private healthcare system. The country is recognised for its multi-disciplinary departments and top-notch medical practices and procedures delivered by highly qualified doctors and surgeons. Private hospitals such as Apollo Hospitals India possess the latest medical technologies to assist patients on their treatment journey. The doctors at the hospital are amongst the most knowledgeable individuals in their field with years of medical studies and accomplishments under their belts.
When it comes to rules and regulations, India’s regulations about fertility are quite lax in comparison to other countries around the world. There is an open policy for IVF treatment in India which means single or homosexual couples can undergo treatment, a procedure sometimes not possible in certain non-Western countries. Also, most countries offering fertility treatment for women are strict when it comes to the woman’s age. In India, the rules are more relaxed, and if the doctors determine the woman is fit and healthy to conceive; she can receive IVF treatment using donated eggs until she is approximately 60 years of age. By default, a woman’s fertility begins to wane after the age of 30 and if she cannot conceive before 30, IVF treatments are recommended.
Moreover, if you are receiving an egg donation in India, you can guarantee the egg is healthy. All egg donors must strictly be between the ages of 18 to 35 years old and screened for sexually transmitted infections or genetic conditions that can potentially harm the mother and child. The screening processes for sperm donors are equally as rigorous.
