OUTCOMES

 

High and stable clinical success rate

Taiwan has achieved a stable, high clinical success rate with single embryo transfer. In other words, the technique of the reproductive medicine physicians in Taiwan has progressed to the extent that they can succeed in fertilization with only one-time embryo transfer. The successful implantation rate (pregnancy rate) of IVF in Taiwan is as high as 36.7%. According to the statistics published by “ICMART” in 2013, the overall implantation rate of IVF therapy in Taiwan ranked the 2nd place worldwide, which almost equaled to the level in the US and became the leading country in Asia. The table below shows that the implantation rate of IVF therapy in Cathay General Hospital is greater than national average.

Competitive medical expenses

The average medical expenses for IVF therapy per cycle in Taiwan is about 60% cheaper than those in Hong Kong, Philippine and Singapore and 40% cheaper than in China. Therefore, the price for IVF treatment in Cathay General Hospital is affordable (50% of average price worldwide) and very competitive internationally.

 

New technology and medication

The technology development of infertility treatment in Taiwan is advanced enough to keep pace with advanced countries in the Europe of US. The basic ovulation induction program includes the long protocol, the short protocol, the antagonist protocol, minimal ovarian stimulation, and dual-stimulation. Each protocol has its advantages and the physicians in CGH will recommend the best option and medication for you depending on your physical conditions.
The most updated technology (e.g. PGS/PGD) has been studied and practiced for years in Taiwan, hence most of we can perform such procedures. PGS/PGD assures transplantation of healthy embryos, so it helps people with familial genetic diseases.
As to the medication, the prescriptions in Taiwan are based on gene engineered reagents, including Gonal-f® RFF* Redi-ject™, FSH/LH compound injection or long-acting FSH injection, which are all already approved by the Ministry of Health and Welfare.
For luteal phase support after ovum pick up, the centers in Taiwan can provide advanced vaginal gel for patients in order to help them free from progesterone injections and greatly improve friendliness of infertility treatment.
