Shruti was getting bugged by the mounting pressure to have a baby. Wherever she went, it seemed the questions followed her. Finally she decided to visit a specialist and get things sorted. But then even after several months of screenings, scans, tests, and injections nothing seemed to work. That is when the doctor hinted that she might want to check for blocked fallopian tubes. Now what’s that?

This is one of the situations that many women who consult a fertility specialist are stuck in. Doctors try every possible way to help them conceive, but sometimes nothing seems to work. That is when they resort to check the blocked fallopian tubes. Though common, the symptoms are not glaring and hence blocked fallopian tubes often go unnoticed until all other normal methods of conception have been tested and tried.

What Exactly is Blocked Fallopian Tubes?
Fallopian tubes are the two thin tubes on either side of the uterus where the egg and sperm meet and get fertilized.

IVF Treatment Cost in India
Generally, the IVF cost in India is anywhere between Rs 60,000 and Rs 80,000, inclusive of medicines. However, in reality, most of the couples have to spend more than Rs 5 lakh on IVF treatment and procedures due to the need for several rounds of IVF cycles.

Cost of Sperm Donor/ IVF
Couples with low or bad quality sperms/eggs may require a donor. The cost of sperm donor varies between Rs 8,000 and Rs 12,000 in India.

Cost of Assisted IVF with Egg Donor
Assisted IVF cycle with egg donor is a bit tricky and expensive. The cost of donor eggs can vary between Rs 50,000 and Rs 80,000, depending on the qualification of a donor. This is an added cost to regular IVF. So the total cost of Egg donor IVF cycle is =

Rs 50,000 + Rs. 2, 00,000 = Rs 2,50,000 lakhs ( approximately)

(cost of donor eggs) + (cost of IVF cycle)

Note, a certain portion of the IVF treatment cost, which is usually Rs 30,000, is paid to the woman who is providing her eggs while a certain percentage is given to the agent or agency that arranges for it. Though it is not legal; this is how it works.

Cost of Embryo Donor for IVF
Many times fertility specialists suggest embryo donors if either one or both the partners have serious genetic health conditions which can be inherited by their kids. In such cases, doctors use embryos of fertile people with no serious medical history. The cost of embryos donor for IVF can range between Rs 35,000 and Rs 55,000.

Cost of Frozen Embryos Transfer for IVF
Nowadays, many couples prefer to freeze their embryos through an IVF procedure so that they can be transferred to the woman’s uterus later. Here, in India, the cost of frozen embryo transfer can vary between Rs 20,000 and Rs 30,000, excluding the cost of surrogacy.

Cost of Testicular Sperm Aspiration for IVF
Sperm aspiration and extraction procedure is prescribed for men who are suffering from vasectomy. It is a minor procedure where sperm is extracted directly from the testicle through a needle. The cost of testicular sperm aspiration can vary anywhere between Rs 12,000 and Rs 18,000.

Cost of Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) for IVF
An ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection) procedure is used when a male partner has infertility issues, like low or poor sperm count. A doctor injects a single sperm directly into a woman’s body to fertilise the egg. The procedure can cost anywhere between Rs 20,000 and Rs 45,000. This is an added cost to regular IVF treatment cost. So the total cost of ICSI is =

Rs 20,000 + Rs. 2, 00,000 = Rs 2,20,000 lakh ( approximately)

(cost of ICSI) + (cost of IVF cycle)
