IVF in Cancun

At AFCC (Advanced Fertility Center Cancun), we provide a professional medical team capable of turning your dreams into reality. With more than 15 years of experience and international medical support, we offer methods that help couples to fulfill their greatest wish — to have a child of their own.

Through different studies that are applied to patients, we can make an accurate diagnosis of the fertility problems that each case suffers and with that select the best technique according to the profile of each couple.

IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) Cancun is recommended when other reproductive treatments fail. This procedure consists in extracting the ovules and fertilizing them with the sperm being outside the uterus, so that the embryos can later be transferred to the maternal womb. IVF treatment at our leading IVF clinic in Mexico helps in cases of infertility, both female and male or combined.

  • fter 2 failed IVFs with my own eggs in the U.S., we decided to do treatment in Mexico with egg donation. FCC is the only one that offered a reasonable and cost-effective IVF egg donation. They also had a lot of donors to choose from and with specific characteristics I was looking for. They were very good at communicating back and forth via email/ phone, and helping set up a travel/ treatment schedule that suited our needs. The staff was always readily available to help and are very friendly. They also included a warranty in our package both times we went there for treatment. They helped me get pregnant for the first time at age 40 with a beautiful baby girl and again at 42 with twin boys! I always speak highly of FCC to ladies who are seeking IVF treatment overseas as I am very thankful for all they have done to expand my family. I am also thankful to Dr. Azul Torres for all her time, effort, support and encouragement in our treatment process! I highly recommend choosing AFCC for your IVF treatment!
