Our Embryology Laboratory utilizes state of the art technology and a natural, calming environment to optimize the chances of pregnancy. We take every aspect into consideration; everything is regulated to ensure that the chances of becoming pregnant are at maximum potential. We will be there from the initial assessment, through to the embryo transfer.
Samitivej adheres to a worldwide standard of medical excellence. We make every effort to provide our international patients with the healthcare they deserve. This includes providing interpreters.

For your convenience, please make an appointment, in advance, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Preparing for Infertility Treatment:
Initial assessment and specialist consultation
|Initial evaluation provides information about reproductive health and diseases that cause infertility. The couple can undergo the infertility assessment in their home country within three to six months before starting infertility treatment; please bring your medical report. Our specialist will suggest additional assessment, if necessary.
Alternatively, the couple can start undergoing our standard female/male infertility assessment at our hospital and meet our infertility specialist for consultation.
For women, the assessment comprises:
For men, the assessment comprises:
|Day 8 to 10 of your period cycle||Female infertility assessment starts at 35,000 Baht
HSG test starts at 7,000 Baht
TVS starts at 3,000 Baht
Pelvic examination starts at 8,000 Baht
Male infertility assessment starts at 20,000 Baht
|Beginning Infertility Treatment:
Last evaluation before starting hormonal injections
|A transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) checks your reproductive health again before starting hormonal injections. The dosage of hormone injections and number of days is adjusted according to each patient’s needs, as prescribed by our specialist.
Injections are usually given at approximately 10 to 14 days, but the time may be extended if ovulation does not occur. Days are counted from hormonal injection until ovum pick up
|Day one to three of your period cycle||TVS starts at 3,000 Baht
Hormone injections start at 80,000 – 100,000 Baht
|Follow up hormonal level monitoring||After completing the recommended dosage and number of hormonal injections, women will have a vaginal ultrasound to check the size of the follicles and blood tests for hormone level monitoring. These results will confirm if the woman needs to continue receiving the injections. All of these situations depend on the woman’s response to the medication.||Follow up hormonal level monitoring plus TVS starts at 15,000 Baht per visit|
|Ovum and sperm pick up||Egg collection will be performed in our operating room under deep sedation. Patient must stay in the recovery room for observation for at least three hours.
The sperm can be collected onsite in our semen collection room that is near our embryo laboratory. If sperm gets too cold or too hot, they stop swimming – so collecting onsite means that the temperature of the sperm sample can be controlled.
|N/A||Starts at 131,000 Baht
(Cost includes operating room, recovery room, doctor’s fee)
|Preimplantation Genetics Screening (PGS)||Preimplantation Genetics Screening refers to the techniques which examine your embryos for chromosomal abnormalities.You can further consult with our specialts for more details.
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) involves specialists examining DNA to check for abnormalities which can be passed on from parents to children in order to select genetically disease-free embryos for implantation with 95% accuracy.
Mitochondrial DNA testing
Using one’s MitoScore®, a doctor can assess the quality of a woman’s embryo by measuring the energy of the mitochondria within. If the energy is low, this means the embryo is good because it doesn’t need to exhaust itself in order to implant.
Who can benefit from PGS?
Please be informed that effective August 1, 2015, new laws and regulations have been set forth by the Ministry of Public Health, the Royal Thai College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Medical Council of Thailand — all patients must provide the healthcare provider with a copy of their marriage certificate prior to receiving any fertility treatments, including IUI, Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), IVF, ICSI, Surrogacy, PGS/PGD, etc.
|N/A||PGS with NGS 19,500 Baht/embryo
PGS with MitoScore® 88,000 Baht per
153,100 Baht per 3-4 embryos
164,000 Baht per 5-6 embryos
(This charge is non-refundable, regardless of outcome)
|Preimplantation Genetics Diagnosis (PGD)||Preimplantation Genetics Diagnosis refers to the procedure used prior to implantation to help identify genetic defects within embryos created through in-vitro fertilization to prevent certain diseases or disorders from being passed to the child.
PGD benefits couples who have genetic diseases/disorders in their family. Our specialists can provide more information and suggest the PGD program during consultation.
|Days three to five after ovum pick up||Price depends on the number of genetic diseases the patients want to check.|
|Endometrial receptivity analysis (ERA)||Endometrial receptivity analysis (ERA) is used to determine whether or not a woman’s endometrium is ready for embryo implantation. If receptive, the implantation can take place with higher chances of success and lower chance of miscarriage.||N/A||Starts at 85,000 Baht/analysis|
|Embryo transfer||The procedure is performed in the operating room. The patient usually remains in a operating room and is discharged half an hour (30 minutes) after the procedure. The blood pregnancy test will be done two weeks after procedure.||N/A||Starts at 60,000 Baht
(Cost includes operating room, doctor’s fee and relevant medications until the pregnancy test)
