Since insurance rarely covers IVF treatment completely, considering IVF cost is important in planning how to build your family. The average cost of IVF is $12,000 to $15,000 per cycle, but that price can be higher depending on your particular fertility problems, age, and treatment goals. It’s rarely lower than $10,000. (Read this article for details on IVF cost.)
How much did you personally pay for IVF? What services were included in the price? (If you decided not to go through with IVF, but did get quotes, you can share how much you were told you would have to pay.)

- I paid almost $40,000 for 3 IVF cycles, one fresh, 2 frozen. All were my eggs. All failed.

- We are about to undergo IVF for the first time. The clinic we will use does not put you under for egg pick up, instead they use sedation. This, along with generous government rebate, means we will only pay $1,300 out of pocket for the first cycle, with subsequent cycles costing around $500. And yes, this includes all monitoring, drugs, collection and scans. I am so appreciative that the cost is affordable. After two IUI's and a third planned before IVF, the standard cost of IVF would put it out of reach.

How much we paid for IVF
- We paid total of $19,800 for 2 IVF cycle package, and in that amount $2,300 was for medications. If we failed the first time, we didn't have to pay for the second time but need to pay for medications again. Our insurance didn't cover anything.

Donor Egg + IVF cost
- Donor egg cycle plus first IVF recipient cycle was just a shade under $40000 (including donor meds & monitoring, my meds, and lab tests). 13 weeks pregnant now, plus frozen embryos for later sibs if we choose.

- My clinic has this plan; you can buy 1 treament for $7,500 or 3 treaments for $15,000 (paid upfront). The meds are not included and it's another $400 for the admin fee. In Canada our province health plan covers our ultrasound, blood work,... My meds were covered by my private insurance, therefore my total cost for IVF is $7,900 for one treament or $15,400 for up to 3 treaments

- National Health Care paid for our treatment in Sweden... So I hope you guys in the USA lobby for the same health care provision as we have in Europe.

- We paid just shy of 11K for IVF, plus about 5K for drugs (although I was also fortunate to have about 2K worth of drugs donated to me by some friends on an infertility forum I frequent.) The charge for IVF was inclusive of ICSI, assisted hatching if needed, cryopreservation for 3 years, and all bloodwork and ultrasounds until a positive pregnancy test. Fortunately #1 worked for us.

how much we paid for ivf
- We paid 11,900 for IVF, but that did not include another 1,000 for medication, 5,000 of medication we were given for free because we were accepted into a special program, fertility lifelines, for people with no insurance. We also paid another 4,000 for blood work. All together we spent roughly 17,000 dollars. But it was well worth it. We are now 11 weeks pregnant.

- We did basic IVF, and we paid the average, about $12,000. We didn't have many extras, no ICSI or anything like that. We did two rounds, and then we got pregnant!
