Advantages of IVF in Russia and International Statistics

Intended parents come to Russia and stay for treatment from several days to two weeks, depending on the program. To optimize a foreign patient’s stay, the clinics’ specialists carry out all the preparatory work remotely. Thus you can correspond with the doctor by e-mail, send tests, extracts, the doctor gives comments, makes appointments, and only when everything is ready for the IVF program, you arrive at the clinic for the procedure.

  • IVF prices in Russia are lower than in Europe and Asia. A standard IVF procedure in Russian clinics costs from $4000, and in Europe – from $6000. In general, foreigners in Russia can save from 40 to 80% of medical services.
  • A significant factor in choosing a Russian clinic is guarantees. For a European clinic, the pregnancy rate at the level of 20-23% is considered normal. At the same time, in Russia, a good clinic works with an efficiency of 40-45%.
  • There are no restrictions on the number of embryos you transfer. In many countries, doctors can transfer only one embryo according to the law. In Russia, you can use two or more, which immediately increases the percentage of pregnancy.
  • Also, in most countries, unlike Russia, the IVF procedure has strict age restrictions. In Russia, women can go for IVF at the age of 40-45.
  • Besides, there are restrictions on IVF programs with an egg donor in many countries, including China. There are no restrictions in Russia, as well as queues for donor material.

RMTA states that Russia attracts medical tourists due to the lower cost of procedures and the process’s legislative side.

Of the total number of foreign patients who came to Russia for IVF, Italians make up 55% (Italy prohibited the procedure until 2014). 19% Of all patients are residents of the UK, waiting for a donor biomaterial. Israeli and German women go to Russian clinics because of age restrictions in their homeland. US citizens choose IVF in Russia, mainly because of the low cost of the procedure. Besides, IVF is of interest to women from the Middle East, in particular from the UAE.

Chapter 35 of the Russian Federation Family Code states, ‘Every adult woman of childbearing age has the right to artificial insemination and embryo implantation.’ The civil registry office carries out registration at the child’s birthplace or the parents’ residence (one of the parents).
