    How fertility treatment works for international patients

    Virtual Consultations

    Engage with our fertility specialists and patient coordinators in a comprehensive virtual meeting to discuss your medical background, treatment possibilities, and the process of undergoing IVF treatment at Ferticentro. Please provide us with your complete medical history, including any previous fertility assessments. If necessary, we might recommend additional testing that you can complete at home, with results sent directly to our team.

    Creating Your Treatment Plan

    Based on your medical details, we’ll craft a tailored treatment strategy for you, detailing your medication schedule and the expected timeline, ensuring you’re fully informed every step of the way.

    Organising Your Journey

    With your treatment plan in place, Ferticentro’s patient coordination team will assist in arranging your travel dates, accommodations, and transportation for a worry-free journey to Portugal.

    Monitoring Close to Home

    To reduce the duration of your stay, we suggest conducting necessary tests and monitoring through local facilities in your country of residence, following our guidance on the specifics and frequency of these tests.

    Your Arrival and Treatment

    Upon your arrival in Portugal, you’ll settle in and then visit Ferticentro for a final check-up. Subsequently, you’ll proceed with the planned IVF treatment, which may include egg retrieval (in the case of own egg treatments) and/or the embryo transfer.

    Follow-Up and Continuing Care

    After your procedure, you’ll be ready to travel home. Following a brief waiting period, you’ll take a pregnancy test. From there, you’ll either continue with prenatal care under the guidance of your local physician or, if necessary, discuss alternative options with our team.
