Many couples are unable to start a family due to fertility issues. If you have been trying to have a baby but have not been successful, it is highly recommended to consult a fertility specialist for better guidance. With the development in medical science, the IVF procedure has become safer and easier than ever before; all you need is the guidance of a erudite and experienced specialist. The internet is inundated with contact details of an array of IVF Specialists. However, you should be wary before you zero in on your medical expert. After all, it is the question of your baby. So, let’s talk about the key pointers that you must ponder on before visiting an IVF specialist.

The success rate of the clinic

Most fertility clinics publish their success rates on their websites. However, rather than taking their success rates at face value, it’s prudent to do a thorough background check from reliable sources. It is imperative to understand about the varied rates associated with each method and that they vary depending on the patient’s age group. Talk to previous patients to get a sense of the environment.

Experience of clinical staff

The clinical staff consists of not only doctors, but also counselor’s attendants, financial advisors, and lab personnel. An individual visit and interaction with a portion of the staff can help you get a sense of the clinic’s atmosphere. Doctors and embryologists are typically expected to have at least 5-10 years of experience and a Master’s Degree.

‘Old’ does not always imply the best possible outcome. A good clinic is defined by the implementation of quality standards, protocols, and international state-of-the-art technology, as well as experience and qualifications.

Facilities Provided, Technology and Equipment Utilized

To provide maximum convenience to the couple undergoing treatment, the clinic should ideally offer all of the most recent fertility treatments on its premises. With remarkable advances in medical science, the chances of conception have increased dramatically. The technological infrastructure and equipment used in a fertility center are just as important as the specialists’ education and qualifications. This is because the more modern and advanced the technology, the greater the chances of pregnancy success. If high-tech equipment is more important than the qualifications of doctors and embryologists.

Transparency in Costs and Procedures

In terms of medical and financial procedures, effective fertility treatment will adhere to professional ethics and transparency. Check to see if pre- and post-treatment counseling is included in the cost. The price agreed upon with you at the outset should be the final price you pay at the end. This will help you plan your finances and make financial arrangements as needed. If there is a system, the clinic must notify you. Another factor to consider when deciding on fertility treatments is confidentiality.

Protocol

The issue with any new clinic is that it takes time to get into a routine because new staff arrives and there is a new environment, infrastructure, and equipment. That is one of the points where you should exercise caution. But, if not, why not? They can maintain high-quality standards if they transfer what they have learned and the protocols they previously used to the new clinic. On the other hand, a long-established clinic with no protocols and no good quality standards is possible.
