Egg Freezing and IVF in the Dominican Republic

Egg freezing for medical and social reasons and in vitro fertilisation (IVF) are available for medical tourists from all over the world visiting the Dominican Republic. To help patients achieve a successful pregnancy, fertility centres offer other services that include egg donation, sperm and embryo freezing, intrauterine insemination (IUI), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), PICSI sperm selection, epididymal sperm aspiration (PESA), testicular sperm aspiration (TESA), microsurgical epididymal sperm aspiration (MESA), testicular sperm extraction (TESE), and endometrial receptivity test (ERA).

 

Many clinics respect and consider patients' individual religious, cultural, family and personal backgrounds and ways of life when planning unique, customised treatment plans and adhere to European and American standards in assisted reproductive medicine. Many of them also have tourism packages that provide accommodation and other assistance to families on their quest for achieving pregnancy. Technological innovation and patient comfort are also prioritised by speciality clinics that are integrated with quality management systems.

What You Need To Know First About the Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic places at #19 in the global ranking of the Medical Tourism Index. This is largely due to healthcare infrastructure and medical training investments as well as collaboration from health establishments from other countries. It is most noted for its cosmetic surgery medical tourism. The costs of medical procedures in the Dominican Republic are half the cost you would normally pay in the U.S. and Western Europe. Healthcare institutions are overseen by the Ministry of Public Health and Social Assistance.

 

The medical visa is valid for 60 days, but it can be extended if needed. Hotels and resorts in Santo Domingo and Punta Cana are the top areas for medical travellers to stay in due to their proximity to major medical and health establishments.

 

What To Do in the Dominican Republic During Your Medical Vacation

 

The Caribbean tropical paradise of the Dominican Republic is home to spectacular beach resorts and wellness retreat centres. This is perfect for those seeking a relaxing recovery period after undergoing medical treatments. Visit a beach resort in Punta Cana to surf, kayak, sail in a catamaran, or simply relax. In Lake Enriquillo, book a boat trip to watch flamingos and iguanas, saltwater crocodiles, and American crocodiles in the saltwater lake. Watch humpback whales being born during winter in Samana Bay Peninsula.

 

As for laws and safety, be careful of thieves when in restaurants, tourist attractions, public transportation, and shops. Try to avoid taking public transport at night and book a taxi through a trusted ride-hailing app instead. There have been reports of tourists being forced to withdraw money from their ATM accounts and kidnappings in Santo Domingo, María Trinidad Sánchez, Santiago, Santo Domingo Province, and Valverde so always be alert. Avoid receiving drinks from strangers to avoid the risks and consequences of drinking spiked beverages.

 

For transportation within the city and the country, Metro Santo Domingo is the subway system that has convenience stops at major malls, museums, the National Theatre, and the Olympic Stadium. You can also call a taxi service company like Apolo Taxi or Aero Taxi anytime. Another convenient option is to book through the Uber or Cabify apps. Minivan buses are called guaguas. Shared taxis are called carrito–conchos, carritos, or conchos.

 

For long-distance travel, there are four airports for taking domestic flights: La Isabela International Airport, Arroyo Barril International Airport, María Montez International Airport, and Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ). You can take your pick of an interurban coach bus service: Metro Tours, Caribe Tours, or Expreso Bávaro.

 

The official language is Spanish, spoken by 85% of the population. Other spoken languages are Haitian Creole, Samaná English, and English.

 

Social Attitudes Towards Fertility Treatments

 

A journal article about embryonic personhood reports the "right to life" beliefs of Latin American societies. In the Dominican Republic, social values reflect the belief that the right to life of a human embryo and fetus from fertilisation up to birth applies to fertilised embryos, even if these are not yet implanted. Many Dominican Republic locals agree with the notion that life begins at conception, making the embryo a legal person.

"I couldn't believe that I can choose my own doctor and enjoy extra benefits for the same price."

"I had a preferred doctor overseas that my girl friends recommended. He is part of Zora’s clinic network, but I was interested in Zora’s support and perks. After speaking to Zora, they assured me I wouldn’t pay extra. Zora managed the whole process - from personalised guidance to answering my queries about legalities."

"The financing options lifted a huge weight off my shoulders."

"Zora’s instalment plans were a true lifesaver. I was so grateful for their flexible and affordable options. I have been thinking about preserving my eggs as a form of “insurance” but didn’t want to pay a big lump sum upfront as I am saving for a house. The instalment plan helps me manage my finances better.”

Elaine, 32

"I never felt alone in my fertility journey."

"After failing previously, we were very anxious and were not sure what to expect. They guided us through the process and cared for us every step of the way. My treatment at the clinic was long, and sometimes it was emotionally draining, but having a fertility coach made us feel better and more prepared. As busy professionals, we appreciate the convenience of scheduling appointments through Zora. I have recommended Zora to all our friends."
