1. IVF Clinics Oversell Fertility Fantasies
Since 1978, more than 5 million babies across the world were born via IVF. Remarkable, right? But technology has failed more than 20 million women worldwide in the same four decades!
There isn’t much pan-India data available on IVF because of the stigma which comes with infertility but data from Europe finds that for every 15 lakh IVF cycles, only 3.5 lakh result in a live birth. That’s a global fail rate of 77 percent. (Source: Journal European Society of Human Reproduction)
Contrast this with the success results plastered in many popular IVF clinics in your city – exaggerated and highly misleading. Clearly, vulnerable, weary, desperate couples are being misled by the industry which weeds out failures and combs and constructs data to paint a meaningless, false picture.
A complete lack of IVF laws in India mean that clinics are free to do so.
