Just starting to research IVF

If you’ve been through IVF please tell me about it. How much it cost? How you paid for it? Did it take you more than one cycle? Did you love or hate your doctor?

I had 2 last year, with ICSI. $15k including medicines. Not successful. My doctor said he had a lady who got pregnant on her 5th one. My advise is dont make yourself sure it will work as it hurts more if it doesnt. Dont be afraid of the needles and the procedures. Focus on your emotions and your marriage.

We did IVF and spent $9,500 on round one. That included our first egg retrieval (started with 7 embryos and got down to only 2) and a fresh transfer of one egg. It ended in a chemical. Round 2 was a frozen transfer with our last embryo and it cost $2500. We now have a beautiful baby boy 💕 medications were thankfully covered almost 100% by my husbands insurance but if you don’t have that coverage you would have to factor that in as well. I’m here if you have any other questions!

I just had my IVF baby, I had two cycles in my country, Peru. I went there because it was much cheaper and I went to the best and expensive clinic there. I love my doctor, he has been Amazing. I still talk to him. I am gonna come back for my second baby.

I just had an egg retrieval. My insurance covered $0 so it was all out of pocket. Cost total will end up being about $27k since we are doing a FET and having genetic testing which adds to the cost. My SO and I pretty much emptied our savings

It sucks. I wish insurances were better about fertility coverage.

That’s where I’m at. I thought my insurance was great except if you have trouble conceiving then they are awful. I just paid almost $19,000 and that doesn’t include the medicine and I’m not sure how we are going to pay for anything else.

My IVF baby is 9 months old, we were very lucky and we're successful with our first cycle (but did have a failed IUI cycle before). It cost about $11,000 (Aus) but I think we got about half back from medicare. We didn't like the first fertility specialist we were referred to, she didn't listen to us and was really blunt. So I went to my doctor and asked for another referral to someone else. The second specialist was much better.
