Schedule a fertility consultation 🗓️
The assessment appointment will allow you to know your reproductive health status and that of your partner. This would be through our Comprehensive Evaluation Program where you will receive the tests you need to know about your fertility and the recommended treatment.
Schedule a consultation with the financial coordinator📈
The next step is a consultation with our Financial Coordinator. In this consultation, we will detail the cost of your personalized treatment and work together to plan your budget.
Schedule your follow-up appointment
We will then schedule a new consultation with one of our IVF Specialists, who will review your medical history and the results of the requested tests. The IVF specialist will coordinate the personalized treatment plan.
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.

Pay a 50% deposit💳
To reserve your IVF treatment, you will pay a 50% deposit. We will order and ship your medications.
Once the financial agreement has been reached, our IVF Coordinator will prepare you for your cycle. This includes setting the treatment date, undergoing pre-treatment tests, and taking medications before the treatment. 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.
Start your medication💊
Once your tests are complete, your cycle can start. We prescribe the birth control pill to regulate your ovaries and schedule your trip. Your IVF Coordinator will create a detailed calendar of events and will be available throughout the process to answer your questions.
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.
