The cost of fertility drugs has a large impact on the overall cost of fertility care. Depending on the type and amount of fertility medication used, the cost of fertility medication can amount to a third of the total cost of treatment. Understanding common fertility drug options and their associated costs can help you have an informed conversation with your fertility care team.
Common fertility drug options include:
Clomid is often the first treatment option for women who have been unable to conceive on their own. Clomid works by stimulating the ovaries to mature and release eggs. When used in large doses, Clomid has the potential to produce multiple eggs during a single cycle. Clomid is one of the least expensive fertility medication with a cost that ranges, on average, between $10 and $100 per cycle.
Synarel is used during fertility treatment in order to trigger and time ovulation. Knowing when ovulation is going to occur allows doctors to retrieve eggs just before ovulation, when they are ready to be fertilized. Unlike other trigger medications, Synarel is administered via nasal spray in a single dose. Synarel can cost between $1,500 and $1,700 per cycle.
Menopur is an injectable medication that is used in order to stimulate the ovaries in order to produce eggs. Menopur is often used during IVF treatment in combination with other medications. Multiple doses of menopur may be required during a single cycle depending on a woman’s specific medicals. Each dose must be injected exactly as prescribed in order to have the desired effect on fertility. Menopur costs between $50 and $70 per dose. The per cycle costs vary as multiple injections are often prescribed in order to achieve the desired effect of producing multiple, viable eggs.
