Fertility treatment costs are all dependent on what treatment you will be receiving and sometimes from where, and they range from a paltry $50 up to an astronomical $25,000.
Fertility treatment costs can become rather mind boggling and confusing. There are many options that you can do to help afford the treatments you are in need of to treat your infertility issues. Those who consider fertility treatments want to do their research to be fully aware of what they’re getting themselves all wrapped up in. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here
Clomid is one of the most used fertility treatment drugs on the market. This drug often takes up a majority of the price of fertility treatments. The total cost of these drugs throughout your treatment is going to range to as little as $50 to as much as $4,000.
Artificial Insemination is another option for those who truly want to conceive. The price of this treatment is often between $250 to as much as $750.
An important option that you must pay for when you are considering Artificial Insemination is a Sperm Wash. A sperm wash can cost as much as $150.
A procedure known as Ovulation induction with artificial insemination is quite known in the treatment realm for infertility. The price of this treatment can cost $1,600 per month until conception occurs. This can be rather expensive but this is the option you choose. You will be satisfied with the end results you are holding your beautiful bundle of joy.
In vitro can cost anywhere from $12,000 to as much as $15,000. With due research I have found prices to be as low as $10,000 but not any lower than that. Please keep in mind that this price is only for one cycle of IVF. And for many women, many cycles are necessary before conception occurs. So this is a very pricey choice.
If you have frozen embryos, be sure to utilize them, because doing so can save you from having to pay to use fresh embryos. The average price in America for the transfer of frozen embryos is at least $3,000.
There are special add-ons such as ICSI treatment which is where they will take a single egg and a single sperm and combine. This treatment can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $1,500. Another special add-on you may not be aware of is PGD and this is simply the genetic testing of embryos which can run you $3,000 or more.
If your eggs are not viable then you will need a donor and this can cost you upwards of $25,000 for a single cycle. Couples who have viable eggs to use but are need of sperm donors spend around $200 to as much as $3,000 for a single donation. Perhaps you need a sperm donor for a whole cycle and that can cost you as much as $17,000 per cycle. There is often Embryo donation programs and often times this much cheaper costing no more than $7,000.
The prices vary from state to state and I want to urge you to visit more than one facility. Also take into consideration that your wellbeing during and after the procedures are very important so be sure to check out the success rate. You want to get the best results and service for the money that you are spending. Fertility treatment costs are all dependent on what treatment you will be receiving and sometimes from where.
