Vietnam: Where IVF is Solidly Cheaper and Dead Men Donate Sperm

You read that title correctly. Vietnam might be late to the IVF party, but they are doing a solid job of catching up (both in life and death).

IVF Inexpensive and Successful for Foreigners

According to the Ministry of Health, the infertility rate in Vietnam is 7.7 percent, while 35-50 percent of assisted reproduction cases are successful. It turns out that many infertile couples from around the globe are beginning to flock to Vietnam not just for their success rate, but because their IVF procedures are relatively cheap compared to the clients’ home country.

The first three IVF cases resulted in three babies born on April 30, 1998. Twenty IVF operation centers in Vietnam conduct IVF for 15,000 couples a year. The cost is approximately $3,000 with a success rate of 40%.

Prof. Dr. Nguyen Thi Ngoc Phuong, chair of the HCM City Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Association said that in-vitro fertilization method has resulted in more than 10,000 births.

According to this The Vietnam Bridge, “Vietnam uses this technique the most in Southeast Asia, with a high success rate,” Dr. Phuong said proudly.

Even Experts Use Vietnam to Grow Their Family

Turns out even experts in the IVF field are choosing Vietnam for treatment.  According to Dr. Phuong, even the co-author of the world’s most famous textbook on reproductive assistance techniques came to Vietnam for services. The result was a son. The family could not be happier, even adding a photo of the child in the updated textbook

“In some cases foreign patients went to Vietnam after foreign hospitals failed to help them to have a child and their dreams became true in Vietnam,” Dr. Tuong said.

 Dead Man Donates Sperm

You read that right. A few years back, a wife panicked when her husband died unexpectedly in a train accident. While she had a daughter with him, she was grief stricken over not being able to expand her family. In a bold move, she had medical experts extract sperm from her husband’s six hour dead body. The sperm was then frozen, giving the wife time to heal. When she was emotionally stable, after three years, the deceased man’s wife became pregnant with his sperm, delivering healthy sons.

While that last story was remarkable, you shouldn’t have to go to such lengths to have a family. That’s where GlobalIVF comes in. We can help!
