Women and married couples facing fertility challenges continue to opt for In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), firm Fertility Point Kenya has said.

These procedures cost between Sh400, 000 and Sh500,000, the firm, which has been running its operations in the country for three years has said.

Speaking at the third anniversary held at its clinic in Upper Hill, President of Kenya Obstetrical and Gynecological Society Kireki Omanwa said the demand for the procedures has notably increased over the years.

“The number has now doubled and I am confident that with the existence of exceptional fertility centers like Fertility Point, we are going in the right direction as a country towards fertility treatment,” Omanwa said.

Since 2018, the team has successfully undertaken over 700 successful cycles of IVF and helped more than 1,000 patients become parents.

Vice President of Operations Vishal Sharma expressed his satisfaction with the impact that the operation has had in helping couples successfully bear children.

“Every day, we have clients who visit Fertility Point requesting help to conceive a child, and we celebrate each time we get the news that a baby has been born. We feel privileged to have helped many people across the globe fulfill their dream of becoming parents,” Sharma said.

He further attributed the clinic’s pregnancy success rates of over 65% to their investment in world-leading technology and a holistic approach to fertility.

“Reaching 3 years in Kenya is a significant milestone for us and we would like to celebrate the success of Fertility Point, all the past and present patients, their families, and our highly skilled and devoted staff,” he added.

While celebrating the anniversary, Fertility Point endeavored to affirm its persistence for the benefit of multiple stakeholders including patients, employees, suppliers, partners, the community, regulators, and the government.

IVF involves combining eggs and sperm outside the body in a laboratory. Once an embryo or embryos form, they are placed in the uterus.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment where sperms are placed directly into a woman’s uterus.

IUI is a relatively noninvasive and less-expensive fertility treatment compared to IVF .

In some cases, couples may begin with IUI before progressing to IVF if needed. IUI may be the only treatment needed to achieve pregnancy.
