Frequently Asked Questions
At IECH we are pioneers in fertility treatments. We have been in the market for over 30 years and more than 15,000 success stories back us up. In addition, we are an institute that trains medical specialists in Reproductive Biology. We offer information as clearly as possible and provide a written description of the medical processes that will take place. We also act ethically and, although we have laboratory services and sell medicines at affordable costs, we do not force our patients to undergo tests or buy medicines at our center.
At IECH we provide all reproduction treatments and procedures of both low and high complexity, so that our patients may achieve pregnancy and fulfill their greatest dream, becoming a parent. Our services include diagnostic and laboratory fertility tests, as well as all infertility treatments: timed intercourse, artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, medications, ovulation induction, reproductive surgeries to recanalize uterine tubes, resection of fibroids, polyps, endometriosis, and adhesions, among others. We suggest you make an appointment with our specialists so they can get to know and assess your case. Based on your profile, they will be able to indicate the procedures and treatments you may undergo with the highest likelihood of achieving a pregnancy. We will be happy to assist you.

Yes, we perform multiple genetic and fertility laboratory tests.
All of our treatments are personalized, that is, they are adjusted to the needs of each couple. Therefore, we do not have any packages that apply to all cases. We suggest you and your partner make an appointment so that our specialists can advise you and propose the most adequate treatment.
Of course. If you want to know the costs and service hours for specialized tests, you can reach us at (81) 8347-1888, (81) 8347-2099, or (81) 1642-2200.
During the first appointment, the medical specialist acquires information, makes an analysis, and evaluates the patients’ medical history to determine the cause of infertility. A transvaginal ultrasound is also performed. Then, the physician tells the couple what tests and studies are necessary to confirm the diagnosis. Once the results are available, it is possible to identify the treatment or procedure that the couple may undergo with the highest likelihood of achieving a pregnancy.
Yes, it is necessary to determine the factors that are causing the infertility problem, as well as the treatment that is most likely to help the patients achieve a pregnancy. The cost of the treatment or procedure is also taken into account.
To attend an appointment with previous test results, they must be less than a year old. If they meet this criterion, our specialists can analyze them and give you a second opinion, in addition to recommending the treatment and/or procedure that best suits your needs.
At IECH, all of our treatments and procedures are personalized, since they are totally dependent on the specific causes of the problem and its corresponding diagnosis. As a result, costs vary. Two of the most common procedures are intrauterine insemination, which has an approximate cost of between 15,000 and 20,000 Mexican pesos, and in vitro fertilization, whose cost ranges from 63,000 to 120,000 pesos.
We suggest you make an appointment with our specialists so that they can get to know and analyze your case. Based on your profile, they can indicate the procedures and treatments you may undergo, as well as the likelihood of success.
The cost varies, since it depends on the couple’s clinical profile. A previous assessment is necessary to determine the most appropriate treatment in your case.
An intrauterine insemination costs approximately 15,000 Mexican pesos. We suggest you undergo a medical assessment to verify whether this procedure is right for you.
The sex selection method is a sperm technique that costs approximately 1,500 Mexican pesos. It should be noted that this procedure only increases the likelihood of the baby being of the desired sex by 70%; it does not guarantee this result.
A national (Mexican) donor sample costs 5,500 pesos, while a foreign donor sample costs 20,500 pesos. For more information about our donor catalog, you can reach us at any of the following numbers: (81) 8347-1888, (81) 8347-2099, or (81) 1642-2200.
At the moment we have no financing plans. However, for high-complexity treatments only, we do have the option of paying interest-free over three or six months with Banorte cards.
We are aware that, on many occasions, undergoing an assisted reproduction procedure or treatment not only affects our patients physically and emotionally. The economic aspect can also cause stress and affect the fertility treatment. Committed to taking care of your economy and providing you with the best service, at IECH you can pay over three or six months, interest-free, with Banorte cards (for high-complexity procedures only).
The cost of our treatments and procedures only covers one attempt and does not guarantee the result, so there are no refunds. However, if the cycle is canceled due to low response or the patients’ decision, the balance remains in your favor for future stimulation.
Aimed exclusively at female same-sex couples, the ROPA method is a treatment in which one of the women donates her egg so that the embryo can be implanted in her partner’s womb to achieve a pregnancy. If you would like more information, we suggest you schedule an appointment at any IECH center.
Surrogacy is a procedure whereby a woman rents her womb to couples with infertility problems or male same-sex couples so that they can have children. Unfortunately, at the moment there are no legal instruments that regulate or prohibit this procedure, so both parties would be left unprotected before the law if any problems were to arise. Given these circumstances, we do not offer this service. We appreciate your understanding.
Age is important, but it is not the only factor that determines whether the patient can achieve a pregnancy or not. To find out if a woman can undergo an assisted reproductive procedure, other variables should be assessed with the help of a specialist.
Yes. The patient decides who will monitor her pregnancy.
It is a surgical procedure that is performed when one or both Fallopian tubes are blocked or there was a previous salpingoclasia/tubal ligation procedure. The approximate cost is 50,000 Mexican pesos.
It includes one embryo transfer. If more than one embryo is generated, you can make more transfer attempts for a much lower cost (depending on the number of embryos).
The average waiting time to know whether a pregnancy has been achieved is approximately two weeks.
We recommend staying in the city for approximately 10 to 12 days, since the patient must be physically present one week before the procedure. During this period, good ovarian response is confirmed, eggs are retrieved through aspiration, and the embryo transfer is carried out.
Unfortunately, this is not possible, as customs agents at the border catalog biological cell samples as high-risk material.
At IECH we have the sperm capacitation method for sex selection, which increases the likelihood of a baby being of the desired sex. We can also determine the sex of the embryos through a preimplantation biopsy.
At IECH we offer preimplantation genetic testing through a biopsy of the embryo. This test enables us to determine the embryo’s abnormalities and its predisposition to DNA-related diseases.
Yes. Just make sure that the tests you request elsewhere are exactly the same as those indicated in the requirement sheets.
It is important to turn in these documents because, if pregnancy is achieved, they will help adequately assign parental responsibility.
Infertility is the result of many factors. We recommend you schedule an appointment so that our specialists can get to know your case and indicate the most appropriate procedure or treatment.
No. The freezing service renewal is the patient’s responsibility. If you do not pay attention, you could be late in your payments and the amount due could accumulate.
Important: Freezing service renewal costs are subject to change without notice.
