Top 10 tips while choosing the right IVF clinic for you
If you’re considering going to a fertility clinic as your next step, do some research before making your decision.
You may have many questions about where to start when you begin your journey with IVF, and we understand that it can be both exciting and overwhelming. We have compiled a list of important research points and key decisions to help you choose the right fertility clinic.
Choose a clinic with the best expertise, reputation, and experience. However, it is equally important to choose the clinic that is right for you, with the right team, state-of-the-art facilities, a personalized approach, the correct values, and the right level of support to ensure a smooth and stress-free IVF journey.
In this article, we give you our top 10 tips on how to choose the right fertility clinic for IVF.
1. Do your research
When you have so many fertility clinics to choose from, it can be overwhelming to decide which one is right for you. Do your research before making any decisions. Does the clinic offer a variety of treatments and specialized techniques? What kind of support does the clinic provide during your treatment? Can you get there easily? We’ve put together some tips and advice on how to research the right clinic for you.
2. Fertility clinic staff
There are many aspects of this environment that should make you feel hopeful, from the nurses to the front office staff and billing. There is no doubt that the doctor is one of the most significant aspects of fertility medicine. However, even the most talented doctor in the world is only as good as the people under her/his care. In the clinic, patients depend on the staff to handle the scheduling of appointments, follow up with doctor’s orders, coordinate treatment plans, facilitate tests, and monitor their progress on a regular basis.
There is also a possibility that knowledgeable staff will be able to guide patients away from dangerous complications and prevent minor mistakes made by patients in taking medicines to improve their chances of success. There is no doubt that having competent staff makes a clinic feel better in general. You should never underestimate the mood or the energy you feel when you are in a good mood.
As a result of our amazing team, we receive a lot of positive reviews.

3. Clinic accessibility
Do you have access to your doctor for appointments? Is it possible to schedule an appointment around your schedule, or do you have to stop what you’re doing and fit it into theirs? Inflexible appointment times and impossible hours should not make fertility treatment
Selecting a fertility clinic shouldn’t be based on the clinic’s location. Fertility treatments often require travel, and it’s worth travelling farther if you want a better chance at becoming pregnant.
Considering the potential outcomes is more important than location when making such a commitment. Because surrogacy and egg donation is illegal in some states and countries, most fertility clinics accept patients from abroad. Since IVF treatment requires patients to be near the clinic for 5-10 days, many people travel around the world for treatment.
For more information, please visit our international patient section.
4. Level of communication
Communication is the key to a successful fertility practice. Does the doctor have time to answer your questions? Is it difficult to reach the hospital? Can they remember who you are? When you call someone, do they return your call?
Additionally, does the doctor explain the process to you when you talk to her/him? An organization’s ability to communicate well is an indication of its effectiveness. Your embryos and care should be in the hands of a well-functioning agency and clinic.
5. How much will an IVF cost in India?
Make sure you know exactly what the costs will be before you commit yourself. Does the clinic provide a transparent list of all its prices? Can it be made more affordable and transparent through a choice of inclusive packages? We at Shukan Hospital and IVF Centre publish all our prices in a transparent manner because we are open and honest with our patients. In case you have any questions about our prices and packages, our New Patient
The team will be happy to explain them to you.
Are there any ‘hidden’ extras you might be surprised to find?
There is no hidden extra cost but PgT, ERA, and freezing may cost you extra. The hospital guides you about that.
6. IVF Success rates.
A number of factors influence the success rate of IVF, including the reason for infertility, where it is performed, whether your eggs are frozen or fresh, and whether they are donated or your own.
The truth is that some fertility clinics fail to report failed or complicated fertility cycles, or simply turn away patients with extremely low fertility chances to maintain their high success rates. Therefore, you should always consult with the IVF clinic’s staff and doctors when choosing your fertility clinic, as publicly available success rates aren’t the most reliable factor.
There is no such thing as an apples-to-apples comparison between one clinic’s success rate and another’s since you cannot see what happens behind closed doors.

7. What kind of support and counseling is available for IVF couples?
Life-changing experiences can begin with fertility treatment. Aside from exceptional clinical care, it’s also reassuring to know there are experts you can trust and speak with openly who can provide you with support and counseling. Shukan hospital and IVF center offer on-call counseling with our team of supportive counselors to provide maximum flexibility. Garbhsanskar sessions are also provided by Shukan hospital and IVF center on a periodic
Here is what our patient at Shukan Hospital and IVF center said…
Every time we visited during our IVF cycles, we felt more positive and empowered after each meeting. We had the privilege of attending a Garbhsanskar session that runs at the clinic during our pregnancy and I would recommend it to anyone seeking or currently experiencing pregnancy. It helps you process how you’re feeling and benefits you from being around like-minded people.

9. Speak to someone who knows the clinic
If you have a family member or friend who has undergone IVF treatment, you might be able to get their thoughts and experiences. Alternatively, if you don’t know anyone, you could read some first-hand testimonials or stories of patients who’ve gone through the same experience.
10. Take your time – it’ll be worth it
