Oxford, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/31/2014 -- Online in-vitro fertilization comparison and matching service IVF-Abroad.org announced the addition of a number of fertility clinics to the database the company draws from. The expanded selection of clinics based in countries with low medical costs, including India, Mexico, and Turkey, will give visitors to the site an even greater array of options when considering their own IVF procedures. IVF-Abroad.org is one of the highest-rated services of its type and maintains a completely independent stance with regard to the clinics it offers information about, allowing it to give impartial, objective information to users.
"More and more couples and individuals are discovering the advantages of having IVF performed outside of their home countries," IVF-Abroad.org representative Tim Gardine said, "and with our newly expanded database, we will be able to provide even more useful information for our users." For some couples who are unable to conceive by traditional means, in-vitro fertilization can make the difference, allowing for the successful implantation of a fertilized ovum into the innermost layer of the uterine wall, called the endometrium.
The procedure can be very expensive, however, particularly in those economically developed countries where medical costs are normally high to begin with. In the United States, for example, costs typically begin at over $15,000 and often range even higher. At the clinics indexed by IVF-ABroad.org, prices are normally a fraction of that figure, making it very cost-efficient for those desiring the procedure to travel abroad to have the necessary work done. In neighboring Mexico, for example, American citizens can often have IVF-related procedures performed for less than a third of what they would pay at home, while still enjoying the highest standards of safety and medical training and the latest in technology.
There are other compelling reasons for many people to consider traveling abroad for IVF procedures, too. Many IVF clinics in the United States, the United Kingdom, and other highly developed countries are backlogged with appointments. As many who are considering IVF do so at least in part because of advancing age and other time-related issues, delay of this sort can greatly diminish the ultimate chance of success. For some who are considering the procedures, traveling abroad offers access to potentially helpful techniques, too, like preimplantation genetic diagnosis, that might not be available in their home countries.
"Our expanded selection of overseas clinics is going to give our visitors an even better picture of the options they have," Gardine concluded, "which is undoubtedly going to help even more of them start or expand happy, healthy families." Those interested in such options can find out more about fertility treatment in Turkey at IVF-Abroad.org, as well as the alternatives in other low-cost countries, including Mexico, Argentina, Barbados, Cyprus, and Panama. IVF-Abroad.org's recent expansion of the company's database gives it the single largest such resource in the industry, and the company remains strongly committed to the standards of impartiality and objectivity which have made it one of the leading services of its sort.
IVF-Abroad.org provides information and matching services for those considering traveling overseas for in-vitro fertilization procedures. By giving the company's clients easier and more economical access to the highest-quality services of this sort, IVF-Abroad.org has helped over 10,000 couples arrange for treatment.
