Infertility Treatment Costs

New Regimen May Reduce Infertility Costs

Good news for couples faced with undergoing fertility treatments in hopes of conceiving a child. Though the cost of assisted reproduction can exceed $100,000, a new study shows that a faster treatment regimen may help women conceive in a shorter amount of time, and reduce their overall costs.

The study, just published in the journal of Fertility and Sterility, followed two groups of women. Those who used the traditional fertility path of three cycles of pills combined with intra-uterine insemination (IUI) and three cycles of injections with IUI before moving on to up to six cycles of in-vitro fertilization (IVF), and those who eliminated the use of injections and went straight from the three cycles of pills and IUI to IVF.

Those who followed the shorter regimen had an implantation rate of 37.5 percent, while those who used the traditional path had an implantation rate of 27.6 percent.  Participants in the shorter regimen also conceived in three fewer months than the others.  The cost savings of such a faster plan are significant totaling more than $2,000
