Cost of Fertility Treatments

Find out the costs of various fertility treatments, from clomid & injectables to various other options.

Fertility treatments. Chances are, when you bring them up, one of the first things mentioned is how much they are going to cost you. But, the truth is, not every single fertility treatment out there is going to break the bank, make you take out a second mortgage, and spend your future child’s college fund just to get him or her here! So, today, we are going to discuss a few fertility treatments and the real life costs of each of them. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Clomid

There are a ton of fertility medications on the market right now, Clomid probably being the most well known and common one on the market at this time. The brand name Clomid costs about $80 for a 5-day course. Generic versions of Clomiphene however can be found online and at discount retailers like Walmart, with discounted rates between $10-$30 for the same 5-day course. Its relative inexpensiveness is why its the first to be prescribed and the most commonly used.

Femara

Femera is another popular fertility medication as well. Like Clomid, this medication is taken orally and used to induce ovulation. Femara will cost more than Clomid, upwards of $200 per month. While this is far less than injectables, it is still a pricey alternative. Additionally, most doctors will want to combine Femara (and Clomid) with an Intrauterine Insemination treatment that will raise the costs more.

Injectable Hormones

These are much more potent drugs than the oral medications, and they will cost you more too. They usually run between $1500-$2000 per month, and are usually combined with Intrauterine Insemination as a combo treatment. This can really increase the cost. Brand names may include Follistim, Menopur, Repronex, Lupron, and Novarel.

Sperm wash

To help counter male infertility, this process can remove weak and unhealthy sperm and is very inexpensive, only costing around $150.

Artificial Insemination

Artificial insemination is the process of having sperm injected directly into your uterus. This process runs usually between $800-$1000.

Surrogate Parent

Surrogates are fertile woman, who will carry your baby to term. Whether you are using your egg & partner’s sperm or some combination of donor eggs & donor sperm, the resulting embryo is implanted into the surrogate’s uterus. Surrogates can be very pricey, because they are never covered by insurance. If you use a surrogate that you know, such as a friend or family member, the costs will be much less, around $10,000 or $15,000. However, if you choose to go through an agency, costs could increase up to as much as $100,000 since there are so many other people involved who have to be paid.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

IVF is probably the most successful treatment option, and it comes with a very high price. This is where the eggs are removed, mixed with sperm, and then implanted back into the uterus. The average cost of this procedure is between $7000-$15,000.

Frozen Embryos

During IVF, your doctor can remove an egg and have it stored (frozen) for potential later use. This is especially used for older women who are nearing the end of their childbearing years, to use at a later date. Total cost: Approx $2500.

Donor Eggs

As women age, the number of eggs she has is far depleted, and the eggs she does have are of much lesser quality. Donor eggs are using another woman’s healthy eggs to fertilize and implant into your uterus, for you to carry to term. This process is a very expensive option, usually $25,000+. With the success rates not all that stellar, this is probably one of the most risky options, since it comes at such a high cost!

Donor Sperm

If your partner is the one with low sperm count or poor sperm quality, perhaps donor sperm are the way to go. This fertility treatment is super cheap, at around $300-400. Definitely one of the more low cost options on the infertility treatment scale!

As you can see, the options for fertility treatment are many and varied. You can spend a little, or you can spend a lot. You can have a little success, or you can have a lot! Fertility treatments can be really frustrating and confusing since there are no guarantees, but hopefully this article has at least cleared up a few questions for you!

     You just pay a shipping fee first and then after your 30days its $39.95 per-bottle. Not bad at all. When I would see my Ob it was $95 per-visit plus testing fees that could go up to $800.00. So I ordered this after seeing the price and this stuff really works. I was on it for little over 4 months and now I have bun in the oven!! 🙂 Can’t believe after all this time I could have just order this stuff!! :/  Oh well I could not be happier!! Thanks conceive easy!!

     Yes fertibella can address multiple fertility issues in women, including irregular periods and cervical mucus problems. Fertibella has been clinically proven to correct common fertility problems in women that prevent successful conception, therefore increasing your chances of pregnancy by 33%. As for the issue on the sperm count of your husband,  it helps if you would address the root cause of the low sperm count so that both of you will know how to solve this problem. You can consult your doctor about this. If you and your husband have good fertility health, chances of getting pregnant will further increase. Good luck!

    We do not want to discourage you but to just set
    you an expectation women’s fertility drop by the age of 40, at your age the
    expected pregnancy rate is very low. It is very difficult for a 48 year old
    woman to undergo In vitro fertilization using your own eggs because most of the
    eggs are genetically abnormal at this point. However if you are really
    considering this method we can advise that the most effective way to achieve
    pregnancy at this age is to get donor eggs. Consider having a fertility
    specialist to discuss with you the risks, procedures and of course success.

    Knowing that you have been showing pregnancy symptoms, and
    late for your regular menstrual cycle, there is indeed big hope for you to be
    pregnant. Moreover, results in home pregnancy tests are considered to be most
    reliable after a week you have missed your period, thus; it is greatly recommended
    of you to take the pregnancy test by this time. If the test results are still
    negative, it is advised that you already see your doctor for a regular check-up.
