IVF Prices

At IVF Options we provide IVF treatment price estimates at fertility clinics. The information gathered is gathered by our team from a combination of past patients, clinic websites, clinic phone calls, and clinic feedback.

Below we provide a breakdown of an IVF treatment cycle and what is included in our standard IVF treatment cycle estimates. Please note prices are estimates, and we encourage patients to request more information from clinics they are considering. Please also note that depending on your unique situation including your age and fertility issues, the treatment plan provided by your fertility specialist may vary. The only way to know the exact cost of your treatment is to have a consultation with a fertility specialist and receive a treatment quotation.

Standard IVF Cycle

A standard fresh IVF cycle includes: egg collection, anesthesia, sperm collection, IVF procedure in lab, in house monitoring and fresh embryo transfers. Some clinics include services like ICSI and assisted hatching on all IVF cycles. All other costs are usually separate.

Pre-Cycle Costs

Consultation An initial consultation with a fertility specialist is often covered by insurance if the patient has medical insurance. Initial consultations generally go for 45 minutes to 1 hour with the fertility specialist.

IVF Cycle Add-Ons

Item Description Estimated Cost
ICSI  Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection is an advanced version of IVF where the sperm is surgically injected into the egg. Some clinics include this as standard part of all IVF cycles. $1,000 – $2,000
Assisted Hatching Advanced IVF cycle add-on that can help an embryo implant into the uterus, which can lead to higher pregnancy rates in some patients. Some clinics include this in standard cycles. $200 – $1,000
PGT Genetic Testing (Also known as PGT, PGS, PGD) is used to test and screen embryos prior to the embryo transfer back to the patient. These tests are used to identify and screen for potential diseases, and also to identify the strongest embryos to transfer to the patient, which can lead to highest pregnancy rates. Most commonly if a patient undergoes genetic testing, the embryos will be frozen, and then conducted as a frozen embryo transfer the following month. Frozen embryo transfers may also incur additional costs through the clinic. The cost of genetic testing varies based on the lab the clinic uses, as well in some cases as the number of embryos to be tested. Estimated additional cost of $3,000 to $5,000 per cycle. $5,000 – $7,000
FET A Frozen Embryo Transfer is usually a post-cycle treatment, whereby a previously frozen embryo is implanted back into the uterus in effort to get pregnant. This may be used if the first transfer is not successful, or for future siblings if the first IVF cycle is successful. Some clinics recommend that all embryos be frozen prior to being transferred during an IVF cycle. If you are undergoing PGT, all embryos will be frozen. The selected embryo(s) will be transferred using an FET. $3,000 – $5,000
Medication Fertility Medication is required for every IVF cycle and is not included in the cycle costs. Your IVF prescription will vary based on your age and fertility issues. Learn more about Fertility Medication. $3,400 – $5,685
Sperm Donor Some patients may require a sperm donor. The cost of the donor sperm depends on the agency or clinic the donor is sourced through, the donor’s unique attributes, as well as the type of donor sperm it is, whether it is anonymous or ID donor, and if the sperm has been washed for treatment. $250 – $2,150
Egg Donor Some patients may require an egg donor. The cost of the donor eggs will depend on number of eggs, donor’s unique attributes, if they were sourced through the clinic or an agency, if the eggs are fresh or frozen, and how many eggs are guaranteed. Some clinics have programs designed to make using an egg donor more affordable. $10,000 – $30,000

Post-Cycle Costs

Item Description Estimated Cost
Embryo Storage If there are unused embryos after the IVF cycle, the embryos can be frozen and stored. Many clinics include a few month period of embryo storage with an IVF cycle, however if not, it is common to pay up to $1,000 per  year for storage. $600 – $1,200 / Year
Oocye Storage For women who elect to freeze their eggs (occytes), yearly storage fees are likely incurred. $400 – $1,200 / Year
Sperm Storage For men who elect to freeze their sperm, yearly storage fees are likely incurred. $400 – $1,200 / Year
