I have seen during my intensive online research before opting for IVF procedure that different clinics charge differently for packages that have almost similar procedures and tests. Is it because the lower priced ones are not dependable or are the high cost ones just cashing in on goodwill of success percentages and country or location of the clinics? Can someone throw more light on this please?

Yes you are right. There is often a wide variance in charges between infertility clinics. It is hard to explain why it is so. I think that demand supply factor plays a role here. Clinics that have achieved a high success rate can afford to increase charges without a drop in nu7mber of clientele as those seeking treatment will definitely be willing to pay more for a certain degree of assurance about success of procedures.

You cannot simply compare the rates of Clinic A against Clinic B for IVF procedures as a whole. You have to compare the value you get for money. I had a successful IVF procedure done at BioTexCom in Kiev Ukraine and they offer packages that at first sight might seem expensive but offer a host of advantages. For example one package guarantees unlimited attempts with donor eggs. In case of failure, the entire amount is refunded. That is definitely good return on your investment.

When you compare charges of clinics for IVF there are a number of factors that should be taken into account. The first is the number of opportunities that are given to patients to conceive. The same clinic that 2 has talked about (and I checked this on the website of BioTexCom) also offers Economy (One IVF attempt with donor eggs) and Double (two attempts) apart from the unlimited package. You can start off with a lower priced one and hope that you have a successful IVF.

After all these insights given by others, there is really nothing much to say. One point I would like to make. Upmarket high charging clinics also have the best doctors and state of the art testing equipment. When it’s a question of bringing a small bundle of joy to the world, do not compromise with the standard of the clinic even if you have to pay more.

The posts above are a fake conversation between sock accounts of a poster deceptively advertising for a clinic in the Ukraine.
Avoid IVF and surrogacy in Ukraine. Ukrainian centers pay shills to post here under numerous sock accounts pretending to be patients in Ukraine. Centers using such deceptive advertising cannot be trusted and should be avoided.
