How much does IVF cost?

 infertility fertility clinic

How much does IVF cost? Calculating IVF cost can be complicated. That’s because in vitro fertilization (IVF) and other fertility treatments or infertility treatments are medical procedures. And since IVF is performed by experts and specialists it will have a price tag. Although costs will vary by region and clinic, the more invasive, involved, or complex the procedure is, the more expensive it is, generally.

  • IVF is medicine – it’s a medical procedure or procedures conducted by highly-trained doctors. Like any specialized treatment, it can be expensive.
  • It adds up – multi-step, complex treatments generally cost more; each procedure adds a cost to the total and there may be muliple treatment cycles
  • It takes time and commitment – IVF is a two-week procedure, requiring daily injections.
  • It may not work – it’s an advanced treatment with good success rates, but not 100%. Patients who have been struggling to conceive for years may pay an emotional price if the outcome is not a success.

However it’s achieved, IVF has costs associated with each point. For instance, collecting eggs ( egg retrieval egg retrievalegg retrieval ) to be fertilized requires injectable medications. Once harvested eggs may be fertilized with conventional insemination where eggs and sperm are placed in the same receptacle and allowed to meet. However, if the conventional method doesn’t work, doctors may choose intracellular sperm insemination ( intracytoplasmic sperm injection icsi ntracytoplasmic sperm injection ntracytoplasmic sperm injection icsi ), or ICSI, where a single sperm is placed (sperm is injectedsperm is injected) sperm is injected sperm is injecteddirectly into a mature egg for fertilization. There is also a technique called “assisted hatching,” where the outer shell of an embryo is either chemically or mechanically broken to allow the embryo to “hatch” more easily. This is commonly done on eggs from older women or on embryos that were created from frozen eggs.

There are also office visits and ultrasound appointments to consider and blood work blood work, possibly many, each carrying a price largely dependent on the clinic.

Money is a big consideration, but not the only one. IVF is a serious time commitment that can dictate a patient’s schedule for a couple of weeks.

But this investment of time and money isn’t the only cost. IVF is incredibly advanced, but it’s not a sure thing. And this long process can take an emotional toll.
