I’ve been seeing an RE for a year, hence the major expense. I’ve heard other women say they have been getting IUIs with their OBs, so was just trying to find someone in my area who isn’t an RE to see if I could spend less money. I pay completely out of pocket.
I feel you! I wanted to see an RE but couldn’t afford it. It would cost me 300 dollars out of pocket just for the initial consultation! It costs me about 200 for IUIs at my OB/Gyn, and I’ve only had 6 so far, and got BFP with 2 of them. So I’m happy with my choice, I’ve saved tons of money. Plus because we use donor sperm, that’s another 450 dollars a month. It adds up! Don’t give up if you can’t afford to see an RE. If you don’t have any major issues, a OB/Gyn might be able to help you well enough. Good luck!
