Cost Compare

For infertile couples, a baby is Of course priceless, but you cannot afford to waste money. You may need to explore around to get a realistic estimate of how much treatment costs. Charges vary widely – and don’t automatically assume that the more expensive a clinic, the better it is.

You need to consider the cost-effectiveness of each treatment option. While it is true that an IVF cycle is four times as expensive as an IUI cycle, the chance of a pregnancy is also four times as great! A common mistake patients who are not very well off often make is that they repeat the treatment of IUI repeatedly, because they feel that they cannot afford IVF. However, in the long run, they often end up spending even more! You need to have a plan of action, and to stick to it, rather than to keep on trying the same treatment over and over again, just because it is less expensive! All the rates given here are a rough idea of what to expect, and are not absolute charges applicable, these charges vary +/- depending upon  individual patient’s case history
