When couples dream of starting a family, the single line appearing on the home pregnancy test over and over again might be very disheartening. However, it can also be indicative of another thing; infertility. Although many people face infertility, the matter is somewhat of a taboo, so not many people speak about it. However, with the advancement in medical technologies in the 21st century, infertility is no longer an issue and does not stop aspiring couples from becoming proud parents. The solution? In- Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
IVF stands for in-vitro fertilization. It is a kind of assisted reproductive technology that essentially works through a combination of medicines and treatments leading to the fusion of an egg with sperm outside the body and placement of the fertilized egg into the uterus. The implanting of any of the embryos in the lining of the uterus leads to pregnancy.

IVF has a number of benefits to its name, which led to its huge popularity.
IVF is a fairly new procedure in India, only 42 years old. With all the infrastructure and technology required for IVF treatments, it is not the cheapest procedure but is one of the most effective methods of assisted reproduction out there.
No two IVF experiences are the same. So, the cost for every person can vary, depending on their specific needs and requirements. However, the cost can be broadly put under some bracketed range. The minimum cost of getting an IVF treatment in India is about 70,000 Indian Rupees.
the success rate for a single cycle of IVF treatment is about 50-72%,depending on specific patient characteristics. Therefore, several cycles of IVF treatment can be required for the successful implantation of the fertilized embryo in the uterus. On average, each IVF cycle costs approximately 70,000 to 1,25,000 INR.
The cost of IVF treatment also varies from hospital to hospital. Some of the top-level hospitals in India, such as Cloudnine Hospitals have experienced doctors/embryologists and use the best technology/ infrastructure available in the market to provide for the most successful and hassle-free procedures for IVF treatment. Including the cost for medication, consultation, and the actual procedure, these hospitals charge approximately 1.25 to 3 lakh INR for every cycle of IVF treatment.
