We are trying to decide if we should move on to IVF vs IUI. We’ve done 3 IUIs already and got pregnant the first time, but miscarried.
At 37, almost 38, unexplained infertility, and my husband having perfect sperm, I don’t know what to do because I pay out of pocket for every little tiny thing they do.
My IUIs have been costing me 2500 - 3200 a pop, NOT including meds. How are those of you paying less getting it so ‘cheap?’ (cheap to me, from what I’ve been paying! but I know it’s not cheap.) Are you only going to your obgyn or are you seeing a RE?
Because for the $10,000 I have spent (not including the testing insurance covered) on IUIs I could have had IVF once. But for what ya’ll are paying I could have had more like 5 IUIs. Dang! The money part is devasting me along with the miscarriages and no baby disappointments. It just compounds together. So hard.
I live in Atlanta, so if you know of any places I can try that are less, please let me know.
wow, that seems expensive!
I go to mjy OB/Gyn, NOT an RE. Because we weren’t doing any meds anyway, it didnt seem to make a difference. my OB/GYn will do Clomid, follicle monitoring, and trigger shots, but if i want injectables I’d have to see an RE.
Basically since I pay out of pocket, they charge me “discount prices”. For example, the actual cost of the IUI listed is like 40% higher than what i pay. people who have it covered by insurance pay the higher amount, i pay lower.
I hope you can find a cheaper place! that seems really exorbitent to me!
