As a matter of fact

IVF

 

Above are some statistics I found interesting about infertility and IVF.  The $12,400 average cost figure doesn’t include everything involved with a round of IVF so the number is somewhat misleading.  Let me break it down for you, at my doctors office the cost of IVF is about $10,500, this does not include the medications I will need to take which range from $3,000 – $6,000, anesthesia for the egg retrieval that runs between $600 and $1,600 (you can now also choose to have acupuncture in lieu of anesthesia for only $300), ICSI: a procedure where one sperm is injected directly into an egg for $2,500, PGD or the testing done on embryos to help identify chromosomal abnormalities at $4,500.  If you’re keeping track that’s $20,800 – $25,100 for one complete cycle of IVF.
