TREATMENT PROTOCOL

SHORT PROTOCOL

LONG PROTOCOL

PRELIMINARY ROUTINE INVESTIGATIONS

If relevant investigations like complete blood counts, blood sugars, thyroid profile, kidney and liver function tests, complete virology workup (HIV, HBsAg, HCV) have been done in the last two months, if reports are passed two months we may repeat them. All viral serology tests may be repeated at the consultant discretion. Mammogram in the last one year will also be taken into consideration. Papsmear is to be done every year.

CONSULTATION

Upon your email enquiry, an appointment date will be allotted for which you are requested to report with your spouse at the hospital along with your previous medical reports. After this initial consultation we will be able to decide the line of treatment and plan any surgeries or procedure or treatment protocols. You will be seen by either Dr.Kamala Selvaraj or Dr.Priya Selvaraj.

HOW LONG WILL YOU BE REQUIRED TO STAY IN INDIA

Overseas patients can avail the same protocols that we use for a standard ART program like the long protocol or the short protocol, with an agonist or an antagonist. Total duration of one cycle with long protocol is about 6-8 weeks while the short protocol is about 3-4 weeks. It is always better to avail medical visa for minimum 6months – 1year in order to complete any surgical procedure or ART treatment cycles. One can travel back and forth in that period upon consultant discretion.
