Just when I thought we would be able to afford all of the IVF I keep learning of more and more expenses. Now I am being told by the clinic I would need pre-IVF diagnosis testing. Ok I understand the purpose of them testing my hormones and doing an ultrasound. But why do I need all of these other expensive tests when there is absolutely nothing wrong with me! I have been tracking 37 cycles now with Basal temp and ovulation tests and I have ovulated every single cycle. I have 2 children conceived first attempt, no complications in pregnancy, and absolutely no signs of any fertility problems once so ever.
My main concern is HSG. Do I have to have this before starting IVF? If I have to spend thousands more on Pre-IVF testing than I won’t be able to afford the actual IVF! I am starting to loose hope about being able to do this at all. every day I am learning of a new expense and all I do is cry everyday now.
Which tests did you HAVE to get before IVF and which are optional/depending on circumstances?
