Hope for Couples Suffering from Infertility and Subfertility

Status

Korea has become a beacon of "hope" to infertile or subfertile couples around the world. Korea is home to one of the top five global fertility centers and has achieved an excellent rate of success for pregnancy and childbirth of high-risk mothers, not to mention infertility treatments. Hospitals in Korea provide customized treatments and services by accurately identifying the cause of each patient’s subfertility; and they protect the lives of newly born babies with state-of-the-art medical systems, including fetal intensive care units for newborns in critical condition.

Strength

Korea's infertility and subfertility treatment success rates are at an astonishing level achieving 45 to 50% pregnancy success. Korea is unmatched in terms of price competitiveness as well, with IVF treatments costing one-sixth the price of treatments in the US. Furthermore, Korean hospitals introduced a time-lapse system, which observes and records the entire embryo development process and selects the best embryo in order to induce a healthy pregnancy.
