I was curious if it was expensive... instead of going into all these things we were just thinking about saving the money and doing the process. What is the percentage that it works? is there a gurantee to go with it?

Well it depends on the clinic you go to as far as price and success rates. I'd shop around to find the best. It's not guaranteed you'll get pg with IVF but it's the best odds.

Now, for us if it came to that we'd go to Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital, it'd cost about $3500 and they have over a 50% success rate.

Wow April that's a great price! Here we are looking at about $16,000 including meds. The meds alone cost about $3500.00.

Without my New York State Grant, I would have been looking at 15,000-18,000. I ended up paying $2742.50.

IVF is usually 50/50. My clinic for my age group is 58% pregnancy, and then for people like myself who have no issues and are just dealing with MFI, its 75%.

How did you grant? what is a long process? I can believe that the sucess rate was so great. I wonder if I will have that high chance with my age. We are going to look into IVF in about 2 years if I don't end up pregnant before hand.. I wish you the best of luck!

My dr. says its 15K. That just to much for us so we looked at donor sperm for $3000 for 2 treatments.

We won't be able to afford IVF, unless we win the lottery, lol. So, we have to get pregnant naturally, or possibly IUI.

Ditto with Brandywine! We live in a Territory of Canada where there is no clinics that deal with IF. We would have to leave and go down to BC to get treatments and such. We may go this route (unmedicated) IUI next year sometime if we are still not pregnant.

Allstarbaby - I am fairly certain its only New York that has the grant and you have to be a state resident. We have this New York State Department of Health Infertilty deomonstration programvvvvvvvvvv. Its for people like me and DF who have zero money (we make under 30k combined a year) and are in need of assistance money wise. for IVF. Theres a lot of qualifying factors to it. (People are ineligible for the New York State Infertility Demonstration Program if they have an abnormal day 3 FSH, have a medical contradiction to pregnancy, have had 3 or more failed or cancelled IVF cycles, or possess Medicare or Medicaid insurance.) You also have to be under 44. Those are the major requirements and stuff.

Some other big name clinics have research studies you can take part in. I know my clinic -- East Coast Fertility does.

That's just unfair NY is the only state that have grant for low income people. there are tons of low income couples all over the usa who need the grant. Dh and I make barely 10,000 a year! might as well move to ny and live there for a year then qualify for the grant.
You are LUCKY!
