Invitro Cost

Infertility happens to millions of people every day and the number one question is how much does invitro cost? In Vitro Fertilization can cost between $4000-$10,000 depending on what your specific needs are.

IVF or in vitro fertilization is the most advanced and effective treatment for infertility available.

The Procedure

IVF involves stimulating your ovaries with fertility medications to produce a lot of eggs that mature and ripen, at which point they can be retrieved while you are under anesthesia, and fertilized with your mate's sperm in the laboratory. This creates embryos, which are carefully monitored for 3-5 days, and then one or more are placed into your uterus with the hope that implantation will occur and you will become pregnant. The pregnancy rates for IVF far exceed those of any other form of fertility treatment.

Reasons to do IVF

There are many different reasons for infertility, some of which are definite indications that IVF may be the treatment of choice.

• Tubal obstruction - when the sperm and the egg cannot meet in the tube, but since IVF bypasses the tubes, pregnancy becomes a possibility.

• Low sperm count in the male. In IVF sperm are placed together with the eggs in a Petri dish, and are therefore not required to swim through the cervix, uterus and into the tube to fertilize the egg.

IVF is often the most efficient and quickest route to pregnancy for a woman who is over 35. IVF may also be recommended if you have an unexplained infertility and have undergone several unsuccessful attempts with fertility

medications and intrauterine insemination.
