Clinic’s experience 


Costs, success rates and waiting list

1. Smartphone application

Do you provide your patients with a smartphone
application which supports the treatment
process? If so, which one and what is it for?

smartphone-application

Most clinics do not offer applications for mobile devices or smart phones. Despite the fact that, nowadays, almost every patient has such a device, clinics do not feel the need to take advantage of this. The exception is IBILAB clinic,which offers its patients the KUMO IVF application.

2. On-line access

Do you provide the patients with their medical
data on a website/on-line access?

The situation is similar in terms of access to medical data over the Internet. 66% of the clinics do not provide their patients online data such as:

  • drug dosages in the IVF program
  • laboratory tests results
  • procedure results in the IVF laboratories – included
  • the quality of acquired embryos
  • photos/movies of the embryo’s

3.SKYPE Consultations

Do you provide doctor consultations
through Skype?

skype-consultation

The case looks quite different in terms of medical consultations via Skype. All clinics offer this service. The clinics differ in terms of payments and price.
Most clinics (nearly 80%) offer a free consultation. Slightly more than 20% of the clinics offer consultation for a fee, with prices ranging from 135 to 200 EUR. Some of them reimburse the costs of consultation at the start of treatment. Then the price of egg donation program is reduced by the costs of prior consultation.

at your clinic according to the following age
groups (clinical pregnancy)

≤34 | 35-39 | ≥40

This means that the effectiveness varies, depending on the age of the patient. This does not mean that if you are in a particular age group, your effectiveness will fall within the parameters of this group. Remember that there are many factors affecting the effectiveness, and age is not the only determinant of effectiveness.

The average success rate among the respondent clinics was as follows:

9. Guaranties

Do you offer Egg Donation IVF programs
with a guarantee?

Nowadays, guaranties in the process of infertility treatment are not uncommon. Almost 70% of the clinics offer programs carrying some sort of guarantee.

Guaranties relate to various aspects of treatment:

  • guarantee X number of eggs from the donor
  • guarantee X number of embryos
  • guarantee X number of ED programs
  • guarantee of refund for non-pregnant patients
  • money-back guarantee for non-pregnant patients

Performance Guaranties are usually more expensive. The more far-reaching the type of guarantee, and, the greater the number of cycles under the program with the guarantee, the higher the price.

The most common guarantee is of the number of ova from a donor. This fluctuates from 5 to 6 and from 8 to 12, but is usually set at 6 eggs. Where the guarantee is of the number of embryos, the number is lower, and ranges from 2 to 4.

The price range for the guarantee is comparatively high. Prices start from 6,300 EUR (guarantee of 5 oocytes) and go up to 25,000 EUR for a guarantee of 3 cycles, 12 embryos and a refund in case of failure.

The profile of each clinic on the EggDonationFriends.com website provides information on special programs, including egg donation programs under guarantee, as well as information on their costs and success rates.
