February 25, 2017; Dubai, UAE: Addressing the high expenses of In Vitro Fertilisation procedure, Bourn Hall Fertility Centre, Dubai, will be conducting an educational seminar for couples seeking financing options for the treatment.The session, scheduled for Saturday, March 4, 2017 at Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai, from 1pm to 3pm, also aims to help couples struggling with infertility make more informed choices regarding treatment options. Couples can understand how they can maximise the success rate while minimising the financial risk associated with the IVF treatments.
The seminar will discuss future trends in IVF, clearing misconceptions, fertility-related issues and ways to maximise fertility chances. Patients will get an opportunity to meet the Fertility Specialists, learn about infertility and options available through Advanced Reproductive Technologies, ask specific infertility questions and consult the doctors. Additionally, Bourn Hall Centre will be awarding one free IVF cycle to one lucky couple, selected from the first 50 registering for the event. Couples will also learn about the Centre’s Shared Risk programme aimed at reducing the financial burden of IVF treatment and promising money back guarantee in case IVF fails.
“Interactive sessions like these are extremely important in introducing people to the various procedures on the path to fertility. Often, we meet couples who either do not have the understanding of the various reproductive techniques or harbour misconceptions that discourage them from opting for such procedures. Given the increasing infertility rate in the UAE – according to DHA the number of women seeking fertility treatments in Dubai could reach over 9000 by 2030 – we feel there is a dire need to create awareness on the subject,” explained Dr Diana Kayal, Specialist in Obstetrics, Gynaecology, Reproductive Medicine and Infertility at Bourn Hall Fertility Centre Dubai.
Ovulatory disorders are one of the most common reasons why women are unable to conceive, and account for 30% of women's infertility. Obesity, unhealthy lifestyle and endometriosis are the other common causes of infertility amongst women in UAE. More than 90% of male infertility cases are due to low sperm counts, poor sperm quality, or both. The remaining cases of male infertility are caused by a range of conditions including anatomical problems, hormonal imbalances, and genetic defects. Moreover, men who live a healthy lifestyle are more likely to produce healthy sperm.
“While one in five couples in the UAE face the struggle of infertility, the cost of quality IVF treatment is increasing. Couples are always searching for economical options, we want to educate them on means to ease the financial burden, providing guidance regarding financial programs available for them,” said Amin Neghabat, Group CEO for Bourn Hall International said, “Couples usually have to go through 3 cycles to successfully conceive, and the success rate is around 40%. However, the cumulative effect of undergoing three full cycles of IVF increases the chances of a successful pregnancy by up to 80%. This is why we recommend 3 IVF cycles as it is both the most cost effective and clinically effective number for women under the age of 39. Our unique Shared Risk program aimed at reducing couples financial, emotional and psychological burden offers 3 fresh cycles with up to 25% discount and if you don’t get a baby, you get upto 100% refund by the end of the 3rd cycle. Our tie up with Emirates NBD also offers couples the option to pay the treatment fees via easy instalments.
“By offering this facility to patients we are dividing the potential financial risk between the patient and the clinic, so this maximizes their chances of success while minimizing their financial risk. Ours is the only fertility clinic in UAE offering financial assurance through a money back guarantee to couples undergoing multiple In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) cycles. Popular in the western world, the revolutionary refund-based financing plan is one-of-its kind concept, promising peace of mind to couples seeking fertility treatments. The comprehensive care plan also includes the cost of medications and ICSI, which can be excluded in episodic care”, added Amin.
The seminar will further discuss the different lifestyle adjustment to increase the probability of conceiving, causes of infertility in both men and women, the various tests and analysis to assess the chances of fertility, and the available treatments, besides a step-by-step description of ARTs, especially IVF.
Bourn Hall Fertility Centre, Dubai, has been actively running fertility awareness campaigns through seminars, talks and by conducting nationwide surveys. The Centre is the only JCI accredited fertility clinic in the region.
