Over 300 children have been born in Armenia in the last seven years
as a result of in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm
injection, Director of the Research Institute for Mother and Child
Health Care Georgy Okoyev said during a press-conference on Thursday.

He said that almost 18% of the Armenian population suffer from
infertility, and in vitro fertilization and intercytoplasmiic sperm
injection are the only way for many families to have a child. "We
guarantee 40% success. Infertility is a problem that needs commitment
of both spouses. Mutual support is half the way for them in case of
artificial fertilization," Okoyev said.

He said that the minimum cost of such an operation is 1,000,000 AMD
and depends on the age of a woman (the older she is the more expensive
the fertilization).
