If cost is not a matter, then World Path Clinic International in Pudong is your answer. Dr. Yvette Kong, the fertility doctor there speaks good English and you’ll get to enjoy pampered expat service and environment like Parkway Health.
If cost is a matter, then Ji Ai Genetics will be another option. Ji Ai is a local hospital that provides fertility treatment for both the local and expats.
As it is local, you will be subject to long queues and a more eager and hectic crowd. Nevertheless, there are a few doctors there that speaks English (Dr. Dong and Dr. Chen Hua) and it really isn’t that bad…!April 22, 2020 at 2:48 pm #5722AnonymousGuest

Hi /profile/185-principessa/?do=hovercard” data-mentionid=”185″ href=”<___base_url___>/profile/185-principessa/” rel=””>@Principessa, hope you are pregnant by now and do not have to seek fertility treatment here…
If you are seeing private hospitals like Parkway Health, Worldpath Clinic etc, it is advisable to make an appointment. However, if you chose to go to the local hospitals here like Ji’Ai, they don’t make appointments for you. You will have to go there and join the queue with the rest of the locals (and occasional expats) to see the doctors. If you are planning to go to the local hospital, I heard Dr. Dong and Dr. Chen Hua are popular amongst expats.
I know the cost for IVF in Worldpath Clinic is about 65,000 – 75,000RMB (5,000RMB extra for frozen egg). As for Parkway Health, they will help you do all the prior test there but the actual procedure will be done in Ji’Ai hospital coz they don’t have license to do IVF in Parkway Health. The cost for IVF at Ji’Ai, I heard, is somewhere around 30,000RMB (yes…half of what you’ll be paying in a private hospital but you need to weigh the pros and cons)
Good luck.April 22, 2020 at 2:50 pm #5724AnonymousGuest
Jiai is about the best local option. Besides the already mentioned doctors Chen and Dong, Dr Sun Xiaoxi is also a very good option (he is in fact the research leader at Jiai) with excellent English. As he is very busy, a part of the intakes and regular checks is done by his assistant Dr. Chen Junling, a young lady who just did her PhD in Canada (UBC).
Success rate at Jiai seems to be the highest in Shanghai, but be prepared: their working process is very local. So crowded, noisy, long waiting times, the whole lot. Only during the actual IVF, ladies finally get the appropriate privacy.
Costs are about CNY 35000, including the egg freezing.April 22, 2020 at 2:51 pm #5725AnonymousGuest
Can anybody tell me what is the best fertility center for foreigners in Shanghai at the moment. Might need to start treatment soon…
It seems like WorldPath clinic is the best but are they any others?
Thanks!April 22, 2020 at 2:52 pm #5726AnonymousGuest
I spent four years around to know IVF and Ren Ji hospital was the one to provide IVF for patients. The hospital locates in pu xi, close to line 2 east Nanjing road. The doctors work there can speak English.
And I recalled there were foreign patients ever visited. I can not say that’s suggestion or recommendation because I failed. I tried five times but all failed. I know they have many successful case. The cost is not a big issue. I pray for you and I hope you can make it. Need more help, pls pm me, I really want to help you. I have so called experience of IVF. God bless you, my sister.April 22, 2020 at 2:53 pm #5727AnonymousGuest
Hi, we’ve just moved to Shanghai from HK about and I’d like to find out more about the IVF facility in Shanghai.
We have some embryos frozen in HK already and they could transfer the embryos from HK to clinics overseas that are “qualified” to receive them.
May I know if anyone has had the experience of doing that? I’m very eager to use the previous embryos as the eggs were a few years “younger” so I figure perhaps they’d have better chances.April 22, 2020 at 2:58 pm #5728AnonymousGuest
I had my daughter after going through infertility treatments in Shanghai (not IVF). But we did consider the option.
My (Chinese) husband did the research and found that Rui Dong Hospital is the most famous and highly respected hospital in Shanghai for IVF. I have visited their facilities and they are very clean and professional. It is not one of those crazy-crowded Chinese hospitals.
Some of the doctors in the infertility treatment division speak English. I suggest that you visit their facilities and see for yourself.
My two cents is that I would go to Rui Dong over a foreigner’s clinic like Parkway or Shanghai United for something like IVF.
This is because the doctors at Rui Dong are experts in infertility treatment and are doing IVF on a daily basis, with a very high success rate.
Parkway has only a few gynocologists and they are doing mostly ON/GYN work (at least to my knowledge). I tried Parkway first back in 2003 for infertility and the doctor I saw just gave me some Clomid without doing any other tests.April 22, 2020 at 2:59 pm #5729AnonymousGuest
Anyone here knows details about this Ruidong Hospital?I have on-going infertility workup with a Traditional Chinese OB Gyne but Its been like more than a year and until now all he can give me are bitter chinese herbs, Diane 35 pills to stimulate my hormones. I came back home last Feb and saw my OB Gyne.
She diagnosed with mild Endomyosis. She prescribed me with Clomid and Duphaston. Im on my 2nd cycle now and hopefully it works. Im doing this on my own. I need continuity in my treatment like monitoring of follicles, etc. and see if medication works for me.
But none here in my City (2 hrs away from Shanghai) seems reliable. If none of this infertility treatment works, then we might try IVF.
Does anyone knows how much IVF costs in Shanghai? Typical for Chinese patient. I dont want also those Wai Guo Ren hospital as I cant really afford them.
Thank you and any info would be greatly appreciated.April 22, 2020 at 3:01 pm #5730AnonymousGuest
I am currently going to RuiJin for IUI but will probably be doing IVF next year. I have a friend who had IVF at JiAi though.
I think your US test results would be accepted. At Ruijin at least, I’ve given them test results from other hospitals and that was fine.
But it seems (at Ruijin) that they want to be able to follow your whole cycle and make changes in drugs/timing as necessary… for this reason, I don’t imagine that you’d be able to start a drug regiment overseas and then come to Shanghai for the ‘key’ parts of the cycle.
I imagine that you would need to be in Shanghai for the whole IVF cycle, at least until embryo transfer, though your husband would probably only need to be there for the egg collection/fertilisation day.
The protocols are basically the same as in the US/UK, so I’d use your experience in the US as a guideline for how long that would be…
Hope that helps – feel free to PM me if you like!
