Egg Freezing and IVF in Myanmar

There are two main advantages of doing fertility treatments in Myanmar. One is the low combined IVF cost at MMK 945,6075 – 105,067,50 (USD 4,500 – 5,000) per standard cycle. When choosing partial procedures, the cost of the service for insemination of gametes ranges from USD 1000 to 1100 and the cost of embryo implantation is from USD 900 to 1000. The other benefit is the availability of IVF and egg freezing for heterosexual married couples despite the lack of specific laws and regulations on assisted reproductive techniques.

What You Need To Know First About Myanmar

According to the International Medical Travel Journal, Myanmar attracted under 1,000 medical tourists in 2019. On the other hand, an average of 150,000 Burmese medical tourists go abroad to countries such as nearby Thailand to seek medical treatments and help in the same year.

 

An article reported that hospitals and other facilities run over capacity and few doctors have received training from abroad. To address these issues, Myanmar is open to foreign specialists and other medical professionals who meet the licensing fee and minimal paperwork requirements. The article further cited the factors that the country can take advantage of to improve its medical tourism industry. For example, the writer said that Burmese doctors are more proficient in English than Thai physicians. Having been isolated from the rest of the world, local health professionals are also more open to learning.

 

What To Do in Myanmar During Your Medical Vacation

For medical tourists availing of assisted reproductive techniques to address their fertility problems in Myanmar, Shwedagon Pagoda should be the first stop. Located in the largest city, Yangon, the stupa is made up of diamonds and gold leaf. Its esteem comes from the presence of a single hair strand from the Buddha. A five-hour travel from Yangon would take you next to the Golden Rock. It's a pagoda that sits on top of a huge rock that appears to teeter dangerously from a cliff! A sight to behold, both the pagoda and the boulder below it are covered in gold leaf.

 

The third stop on your Myanmar adventure should be a boat ride in Inle Lake. Besides experiencing the peaceful waters of the lake, you would also get to see Intha stilt huts constructed by the Mon people. The lake trip also includes stops at pagodas, workshops, and a market. Next on the agenda is to relax at a high-end hotel on the white sand beach of Ngapali.

 

The highest pagoda in Myanmar is Shwemawdaw Paya. The top of the pagoda is encrusted in diamonds so it glitters when seen from afar. As soon as you take your first step inside the pagoda, wonder at the Buddha relics on display. Lastly, take the Irrawaddy River Cruise. On this scenic travel between the ports of Mandalay and Bagan, you will see jungles, canyons, pagodas, and statues of Buddha.

 

The military has taken over the country in February 2021. The Burmese society responds through protests and demonstrations and the military arrests or violently attacks protesters and bystanders. At this time of writing, there is wide civil unrest and armed conflict throughout Myanmar. Furthermore, there is a lack of healthcare services there right now due to understaffed hospital facilities and unreliable importation of medicines and medical supplies which leads to shortages and unavailability of over-the-counter and prescription drugs. Facebook and Twitter are banned in the country. Due to the stress of these factors, it is not advisable to travel to Burma as of this writing. It is recommended to wait until the national issues with the military are settled.

 

Once Myanmar is safe for tourists again, the biggest thing to remember is to bring all pristine U.S. dollars. Although major Burmese establishments accept dollars as payment, the Burmese are very choosy when accepting U.S. notes. Bills with normal folds and creases or some stains can be easily rejected at money changers, hotels, and restaurants. Bring lots of small bills too because they often don't have change when you pay using notes with larger amounts.

 

For transport and travel within the country, the most convenient ways are through domestic flights and buses. If you want to see magnificent views combined with travel, use trains and boats. Other options include hailing taxis, hiring driven cars or self-drive cars, motorbiking, and cycling.

 

In Myanmar, it is not socially acceptable to ask fertility questions to unmarried women so a study about the lack of addressing family planning and fertility in Yangon mentions that it cannot produce the best results because it does not represent all women residing in Yangon.

 

The official language is Burmese. Other languages spoken in Myanmar are ethnic minority languages. Many Burmese speak and understand English.

Benefits of Doing Fertility Treatments in Myanmar

The main benefits of having fertility treatments in Myanmar are the low costs and the availability of IVF, egg-freezing, other infertility procedures, donors, and surrogacy for heterosexual married couples.

 

Motherland Fertility Centre

At the Motherland Fertility Centre, assisted reproductive techniques include IVF, egg freezing, fertility testing, preimplantation genetic diagnosis (including gender selection), and donor egg and sperm. Offering solutions to patients with infertility problems, the pregnancy rate at the fertility centre is over 87%.

 

Superior A.R.T.

Superior A.R.T. was established as a joint venture with Thailand and Australian infertility treatment specialists and providers in March 2007. The efficient process in the fertility treatment centre helps patients have a positive outcome in addressing their fertility issues. The superior personalised patient services at the fertility centre include IVF, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) technique, egg freezing service, and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) to increase the chances of many couples to conceive.

Costs to Consider

The standard IVF cost per cycle in Myanmar is MMK 945,6075 – 105,067,50 (USD 4,500 – 5,000).

 

Specific average costs depending on age and which stage you are in the IVF cycle are the following:

  • Eggs retrieval and sperm analyses: USD 800 to USD 900
  • Gametes insemination: USD 1000 to USD 1100
  • Embryo implantation: USD 900 to USD 1000
  • Medicines: USD 1100 to USD 1200

Other Considerations Before Starting Your Fertility Treatment in Myanmar

There are no specific laws and regulations on IVF, surrogacy, or egg freezing in Myanmar.

However, a typical fertility centre provides IVF and egg freezing only to heterosexual married couples.

Why Choose Myanmar for Your Fertility Treatment

For anyone who dreams of the happiness that comes with conceiving a baby, Myanmar is an option for fertility treatments that can help many couples have a child. Fertility treatment clinics in Myanmar offer IVF, egg freezing, intrauterine insemination (IUI), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (including gender selection). Some of the best clinics enjoy moderate to high IVF success rates while others have ventured with infertility specialists and providers from other countries to offer the best personalised services to international patients with infertility problems. Medical staff speak English proficiently and are very open to learning new techniques and cutting-edge technology to provide high-quality assistance to patients.

 

While waiting to get pregnant after visiting the fertility centre, medical tourists can drop by the Shwedagon Pagoda and Shwemawdaw Paya to see the diamond-encrusted tops of the stupas. Relax by taking the Irrawaddy River Cruise and an Inle Lake boat ride. Both water adventures will take you on a feast for the eyes.

"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."
