Well, today I started researching grants, donations, go fund me, anything that can help us pay for these absolutely expensive treatments. I made the first step and set up a go fund me account: https://www.gofundme.com/2bm44-our-fertility-journey
Praying this helps us get some sort of financial relief, and brings us steps closer to our end goal of a healthy baby in 2018!
I’m typically pretty private but I guess I through that out the window when I begin this blog!
for those who haven’t been following here is a quick snippet of our journey so far.
Matt and I married February 15, 2015, we have been together for 7 years and have always talked about one day being parents!
From a young age, I knew I would have trouble conceiving, with a diagnosis of PCOS and Endometriosis, along with Matt having sperm morphology issues it has made us have the family we’ve always wanted a bit difficult.
After 2 failed IUI treatments we took some time off from trying, and now we are onto option #2 which is IVF. Being that it’s so expensive and we don’t have the money right now for it we are asking for any help so we can start the family we have always longed for.
I will have a Hysteroscopy in February to clean out the Endometriosis and the cysts I have, this surgery will give our IVF treatment a better chance of working. Our deductible is $1,500 plus an additional $3,000 paid to the physician, facility, and anesthesiologist.
BREAKDOWN OF IVF COST:
For 1 round of IVF: $12,950.00
this includes Stimulation, follicle monitoring, labs, ultrasounds, egg retrieval, initial embryo transfer wither fresh or frozen, administration fees. This cost does not include medication, ranging from $4,000-$7,000 each cycle
