Obtaining treatment for infertility is both an exciting and a stressful time in a couple’s life, not least because of the costs associated with infertility treatments. The cost of more intensive treatments such as IVF tends to be particularly high, and most fertility treatments are not covered by insurance.
Most Affordable Treatments
Most of the time, less intensive treatments are used as the first-line treatment for infertility. Methods like artificial insemination, treatment of hypothyroidism, and ovary-stimulating medication are cost-effective ways to boost fertility, and many couples have great success with these methods. These treatments often cost in the range of several hundred dollars, although the cost can add up over the course of several cycles. In some cases, insurance may cover for infertility medications.
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is used for couples who have not been able to conceive naturally or with less intensive methods. IVF gives couples the best chances of getting pregnant, by fertilizing eggs outside of the body and transferring the embryos back into the uterus.
Each cycle of IVF can be a significant financial investment. At Advanced Fertility Services, we are able to keep our IVF cost several thousand dollars below what many other fertility clinics are able to provide, thanks to the fact that we are able to keep our overhead costs to a minimum. Each full IVF cycle costs $8,000 not including medications, while frozen embryos cycles cost considerably less. You can review details of our pricing here.
One of the best ways to manage costs is to choose a facility, such as Advanced Fertility Services, that works to keep costs to a minimum. In addition, it’s a good idea to freeze as many embryos as possible after the first cycle of IVF, so that you can use them if more than one cycle is required, or if you decide to have more children later on.
