Egg Freezing and IVF in Laos

The main draw for many patients, especially Western couples and women who fail to have successful pregnancy outcomes, are the surrogacy agencies that offer surrogacy contracts. Although there is no surrogacy law in Laos, it is the only Asian country where surrogacy is available. Unsurprisingly, the surrogacy process is the most widely accessed infertility treatment in Laos.

 

For those who want to have their own baby, there are no specific laws and regulations for IVF treatment in Laos. The IVF cost is LAK 962,73500 – 115,921,140 (USD 4,900 – 5,900) per cycle. Egg freezing is not specifically prohibited but also not widely available. Egg donation is allowed.

What Medical Travelers Should Know About Laos

The healthcare system of Laos is in development. With room for growth, it is still in the process of working out management, infrastructure, and delivery of health and medical care programs. Medical services do not provide comprehensive options.

 

Medical tourists and expats rely on established hospitals such as Mittaphab Hospital, Alliance International Medical Centre, and Mahosot Hospital for their high-quality treatments and facilities. They also have the option of going to reputable outpatient clinics such as LMC Clinic Vientiane, Australian Embassy Clinic, and French Medical Center in Vientiane because they have English-speaking doctors and nurses.

 

Medical tourists are inclined to visit Laos for their famed Laos massage and herbal saunas. Massages come with warm herbal compress and various balms and salves. In an herbal sauna, you enter a wooden shack with a water drum on top of a wood fire. The boiling drum contains medicinal herbs with ingredients such as eucalyptus, tamarind, carambola, and citrus leaves, and it releases steam in the rooms.

 

What To Do in Laos During Your Medical Vacation

There are many cultural and geographical advantages to becoming a medical tourist in Laos. Southern Laos is the site of the Bolaven Plateau, a place filled with cultural and geographic wonders of nature. Take your choice of a boat trip to witness the waterfalls, a coffee plantation tour, a day trek with the elephants, or a cultural visit to one of the ethnic minority villages.

 

Laos has the distinction of being the most bombed country from 1964 to 1973. Tourists can join a tour of the Viengxay caves in Houaphanh Province. It served as a bomb shelter city for 23,000 people and it included schools, bakeries, a hospital, a radio station, a printing press, and offices that served as the starting ground of the communist leadership of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic.

 

The main safety problem for most tourists in Laos concerns the food they eat. Foreigners have yet to adjust their digestive systems to local food, especially those that contain raw meat (such as meat salad) and fish. Hydrate yourself when you encounter stomach problems. If it goes on for more than two days, seek medical help to avoid complications and to rule out severe illnesses such as Hepatitis A, dysentery, and giardia.

 

Dengue and malaria are common so always carry high-strength DEET lotions to protect yourself from these mosquito-borne diseases. Advise your children not to play with stray animals because rabies is common in the country.

 

Petty crimes are low in Vientiane but are more likely to happen in Vang Vieng. Stay out of dark streets at night and beware of motorbike-riding bag snatchers. News reports are tightly controlled in Communist Laos so rumors of bandits holding up buses and private vehicles are not confirmed.

 

With its history of being the most heavily bombed country in the world during the war, Laos still has many unexploded ordnance (UXO). The Laos government announced that most tourist areas do not have unexploded UXOs anymore, but exercise attention and caution whenever outside of Vientiane and other urban areas.

 

Respect cultural traditions and customs. Dress conservatively. Remove your shoes before entering monasteries. Do not touch Buddhist monks and Buddha images.

 

For transport and travel, Laos Airlines is the only domestic flight carrier option. The China-Laos Railway starts from Kuming, China and ends in Vientiane, Laos. This bullet train opened in 2021 and has a total of eight stations to stop over. Passengers usually take the bullet train to travel to and from Luang Prabang and Vientiane. Medical tourists prefer booking private transfers for long and short trips.

 

The official and most widely spoken language in the country is Lao or Laotian. There are 80 minority languages spoken. There are also immigration languages, such as the Khmer Chinese of the Cambodian refugees. Foreign languages spoken, especially in areas where tourists visit, are English and French.

Benefits of Doing Fertility Treatments in Laos

Private IVF clinics in Laos are low in cost and lack restrictions. Due to these two significant factors, Laos is fast becoming an international destination for infertility treatments such as IVF. It is the only country in Asia that has become a prime destination for paid surrogacy. When choosing commercial surrogacy, go to reputable fertility clinics that compensate surrogate mothers fairly and take good care of their health and well-being.

 

Besides the IVF procedure, services performed by fertility experts at Laos Fertility include intrauterine insemination (IUI), egg donors, egg retrieval, and surrogacy. The IVF clinic also offers testicular sperm extraction and gender selection through preimplantation genetic diagnosis or microarray CGH. Located in Vientiane, the country's capital, they accommodate those who want to be single parents, heterosexual couples, and same-sex couples.

 

The IVF clinic specialises in surrogacy services to infertile couples with its own surrogacy agency. Its website states it has the safest surrogacy procedures and the lowest surrogate mother cost. The entire process of egg donor selection, selecting a surrogate mother, and fresh or frozen embryo transfer takes only a three- to four-day stay in Laos.

Cost Considerations

The IVF cost in Laos is LAK 962,73500 – 115,921,140 (USD 4,900 – 5,900) per cycle.

 

Laos surrogacy costs LAK 110,026,8440 (USD 56,000). 

Other Considerations Before Starting Your Fertility Treatment in Laos

IVF

  • There are no specific laws and regulations for IVF treatment in Laos.

 

Egg Freezing

  • Egg freezing is not specifically prohibited under a legal framework but is also not widely available.

 

Donors

  • Egg donors are allowed.

 

Surrogacy

  • There is no surrogacy law in Laos – surrogacy is available (including gay surrogacy) but the surrogate mother will be the legal parent listed on the birth certificate. The intended parents would have to process international adoption papers. This would help avoid human trafficking.
  • Laos is the only country in Asia to offer surrogacy and has thus become a destination for paid surrogacy.

Why Choose Laos for Your Fertility Treatment

Choose Laos private IVF clinics because of their low cost and lack of restrictions. These two significant factors are contributing to why Laos is now becoming an international destination for infertility treatments. It is the only country in Asia that has become a prime destination for paid surrogacy. When choosing commercial surrogacy, go to reputable fertility clinics that compensate surrogate mothers fairly and take good care of their health and well-being.

 

Besides surrogate services, international patients who want to achieve a successful pregnancy, especially from Western countries, seek the IVF procedure in the country. Patients who need more assistance can also avail of other services such as intrauterine insemination, egg donation, egg retrieval, testicular sperm extraction, and gender selection through preimplantation genetic diagnosis or microarray CGH.

 

For other medical care services, medical tourists can turn to established hospitals such as Mittaphab Hospital, Alliance International Medical Center, and Mahosot Hospital for their high-quality treatments and facilities. They also have the option of going to reputable outpatient clinics such as LMC Clinic Vientiane, Australian Embassy Clinic, and French Medical Center in Vientiane because they have English-speaking doctors and nurses.

 

After treatment, relax with a Lao massage and an herbal sauna filled with eucalyptus, tamarind, carambola, citrus leaves, and other secret ingredients. Head to the Bolaven Plateau in Southern Laos to witness the waterfalls while riding a boat, take a day trek with the elephants, go on a coffee plantation tour, and visit an ethnic minority village to immerse yourself in Laos cultural heritage.

"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.”

"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."
