The cost of infertility treatment is one of the major concerns of those who need assistance while trying to conceive. Infertility treatment costs can vary greatly based upon a number of factors including the treatments used, the type and amount of fertility medication prescribed, and the amount of medical insurance coverage an individual has for fertility care.
Common Costs of Infertility Treatment
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is the process of harvesting and fertilizing eggs outside the body in order to create embryos. Those embryos are then transferred back into the mother's uterus for hopeful implantation. On average, an IVF cycle can range between $10,000 and $25,000 dollars based upon a number of factors.
- Type of cycle – More holistic IVF protocols such as natural cycle IVF and minimal stimulation IVF use little to no medication. Because fertility medication is a large part of the total cost of an IVF cycle, reducing the amount of medication also reduces the overall cycle cost.
- Monitoring needs – Monitoring during IVF requires the use of blood work and ultrasound. The fees associated with each of those procedures varies between labs.
- Donor material – If donor eggs or sperm are being used for treatment, there is often a fee associated. This should be considered as a part of the overall cost of treatment.
Fertility centers that offer packages for cycles often provide a better value for those without insurance coverage than paying for services separately.
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
Intrauterine Insemination is (IUI) is also often referred to as artificial insemination. IUI is timed with ovulation in order to increase the odds of becoming pregnant during a cycle. To do IUI, sperm is prepared and then inserted directly into the uterus so that fertilization can occur. A monitored IUI cycle, with lab work to predict ovulation, can range between $1,200 and $3,000 with the cost of medication.
