Pay 100% of the treatment 💳

Once you have your personalized treatment plan, it's time to pay 100% of your budget.
Thanks to our available payment plans, you can get started right away.


Start the medication 💊

Once all tests are completed, your cycle can begin. We prescribe the birth control pill to downregulate your ovaries. Your IVF coordinator will put together a complete schedule of events and will be present throughout the process to answer all of your questions.


Egg retrieval and transfer

Egg retrieval is a simple, painless procedure that is performed under light sedation. Your fertility specialist will use a fine catheter to extract the mature follicles from your ovary through the vaginal wall. You may experience some mild cramping after the procedure.

The embryo transfer will be scheduled between 3 and 5 days later, depending on how the embryos are developing and whether or not any pre-implantation genetic testing is required.

You will have to wait between 10 and 14 days for the pregnancy test. Your IVF coordinator will be available for any questions you may have throughout the process.

Once the financial agreement has been reached, our IVF Coordinator will prepare you for your cycle.

This is a straightforward process where we guide you and provide assistance in obtaining the medications and scheduling the tests. Hormonal, immunological, and infectious studies may be required for the female partner, as well as an evaluation of the uterus (Hysterosonogram or Hysterosalpingography). The male partner will also need to undergo infectious studies and a semen analysis before starting the cycle.

Pack your bags, you are coming to Panama! 🏝️

It is time to head to the airport and take a flight to Panama City! We want to meet you in person as soon as possible, preferably the day after your arrival, so that we can take an ultrasound and an estradiol test.

Once we get these results, we schedule the day for the egg retrieval or the embryo transfer if you are doing a donation cycle. During this phase, you will also pay the remaining 50% balance.


Egg Retrieval & Transfer 🧪

Egg retrieval is a simple and painless procedure that is carried out under light sedation. Your Fertility Specialist will use a fine catheter to draw the mature follicles from your ovary through the vaginal wall. You may experience some slight cramping after the procedure, so keep that day free to go back to your hotel and relax afterward.

The embryo transfer will be scheduled for 3-5 days later, depending on how the embryos are developing and whether or not there is any pre-implantation genetic testing required. 
After the procedure, you can travel back to your home country while we wait 10-14 days for the pregnancy test. Your IVF Coordinator will be available for any questions you may have at this time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any doubts about traveling to Panama for Fertility Treatments? Here we will answer those questions

What is in vitro fertilization (IVF), and how does it work to help couples and individuals conceive?

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a fertility treatment involving fertilizing an egg with sperm outside the body. The process begins by stimulating the ovaries to produce multiple eggs, which are then retrieved and fertilized in a laboratory. The resulting embryos are monitored, and once they reach a certain stage of development, one or more are transferred to the uterus. IVF helps couples and individuals overcome various fertility challenges, such as blocked fallopian tubes, low sperm count, or advanced maternal age.

How does IVF with donor eggs differ from traditional IVF, and who is it suitable for?

IVF with donor eggs is a variant of IVF that involves using donated eggs from a carefully selected donor and an FDA-compliant donor. This treatment option is suitable for individuals or couples who cannot produce viable eggs or have a higher risk of passing on genetic disorders. Donor eggs are fertilized with the partner's or donor's sperm, and the resulting embryos are transferred to the recipient's uterus. IVF with donor eggs provides an opportunity for those who otherwise cannot conceive using their eggs.

What are the success rates of IVF and IVF with donor eggs at your clinic, and how do they compare to the regional average?

At Panama Fertility, we take pride in our exceptional success rates for IVF and IVF with donor eggs. Our clinic's success rates are consistently 30% above the regional average.
