How much does it cost?

Postby Sugarplum1922 » Fri Mar 28, 2014 11:47 pm

I'm going on to my 6th round of clomid, and it's just not working. I will probably go to the fertility specialist soon, and am wondering what the next step will be. I've heard IVF is usually a good option for PCOS patients, but I just don't think I could afford it with my husbands military salary.

I mean, how much does it cost? For those of you doing it, do you ladies have a good savings account or nice nest egg saved up for this? Just curious! :D :)

yeah, that is my question as well! I am searching everywhere..:) We are even willing to travel abroad for ivf treatment as it is significantly cheaper out there. There is Czech republic, Turkey for example with very good success rates and what i found out as absolutely surprising alternative is that you can participate in clinical study some centers work on and you have cycles for free, even if you dont fit required profile it it is quite cheap, eg center called Gynem in Prague they ask around 2000 euros and you stay in Prague for 3 days, not bad...Dont know yet, must call there..Have you considered travel for your baby abroad?

We're military too and are using CNY clinic. You should google the clinic! Prices are great and the reviews are pretty good too. Also, they offer a military discount too.

Thank you for the advice ladies!!!

I actually found out that I am pregnant on my last round of Clomid--go figure! But, will definitely keep this in mind if we have another one later on.

My husband an I are also planning to have an IVF treatment abroad with the help of a trusted medical tourism provider ( http://www.placidway.com/package/2015/IVF-in-Europe ). We tried hard not to let it affect our happiness but it was very stressful. All we wanted was a baby but years of trying naturally, I still wasn’t pregnant. We really aren't sure about advantages/disadvantages of one clinic or country versus another in this respect but are willing to put that aside and accept it in favour of the chance of being parents. I know many patients have positive experiences of receiving treatment abroad, although, this is not always the case. I would still carry out a thorough research and make sure that my clinic would have a proven record on quality and standards.

I went to the above mentioned clinic - Gynem in Prague, was very satisfied (and pregnant at the moment:)) and paid 3750 pounds in total.

DH and I just had our appt with my doc yesterday to get started on our first (hopefully only) IVF
$9400 is due at the time of egg retrieval and the cost of meds will be between $3000-6000 depending on the type he prescribes and the dosages. The anesthetic for egg retrieval is $400 and to freeze any unused embryos for future use is $700. So basically between $12000-16,000 can be expected.

My meds were $2700 (lupron, follistim, menopur, crinone).

My IVF is a total of $13,000 which includes my meds and ICSI since we will have to go that route due to morphology issues.

This is my first cycle, and of course I am hoping it is my last. In terms of the money, we have been blessed with a bit of a. Inheritance from my father in law who died two months after we were married. Of course we would rather have him here, but we consider it a gift from him for some grandchildren.
Me (Jamie) 35, DH (Kevin) 39 TTC #1
SA 11/2013- motility 70%, count 40 million/ml, 0% morphology

IUI #1: Clomid, 4 follies, BFN.
IUI #2: Clomid, 3 follies, BFN.
IUI #3: Femara, 3 follies, BFN.
IUI #4: Femara, 2 follies, BFN.

LAP 4/14- Stage III Endo and ovary misplaced by scar tissue- all fixed by RE.

IUI #5: Femara, 2 follies, BFN.
IUI #6: Femara, 2 follies, BFN.

IVF cycle #1: 11 eggs retrieved. Two embryos made it for a day 3 transfer. A 6-cell grade 1 and a 6-cell grade 3 were transferred on 8/13. BFP at 6dp3dt. 1st beta (148) at 12dp3dt and second beta (370) at 14dp3dt. Ultrasound showed TWINS!

Two perfect heartbeats! :hb: :hb:

My sister and her husband went to International Fertility Center last year by the help of PlacidWay. The cost was very affordable so I think you should consult to placidway to discuss about the treatment and the cost of IVF.

Funny you should ask, I've just completed my first cycle (I live in Australia) and tally'd up my costs, I was $6418.50 out of pocket with a Medicare (out public health system) refund taking it down to $5086 in total costs. Other clinics can be anywhere from 2-3K up to 8-10K, its so variable. I'm at the difficult stage of working out where to go next if this doesnt work, Ive got another 2 days to wait, trying to feel positive... but feeling period type pains and have a negative HPT at 6dp5dt. :(

Hi jenny86patch I do hope yr treatment worked and I am so sorry if it hasnt. If you are open consider clinics in Europe, particularly as said above Poland, Czech rep or e.g. Russia. My friend told me she was really suprised when she met a lady who travelled from Australia to Warsaw to undergo ivf in Polish clinic. Unfortunately do not know many detailes. Good luck
