This board has been amazing and I can't help but ask if anyone has suggestions for funding. It is becoming a quick reality of how expensive this process is. I am looking at different loan options, but would love to know if anyone has suggestions on how they located funds for their treatment. I am so worried that the 1st cycle won't work or that something may go wrong along the way (I have lost a child before) and I just can't imagine having to come up with these type of funds again. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

I did my first cycle at the beginning of this year it didnít work. I took a few months off and we tried on our own. I started my 2nd cycle a few weeks ago with a different protocol with more injections. I live in Florida so my insurance does not cover anything. We have taken out a loan on our 403B for the first cycle and half of the second cycle the rest we have put on a 0% interest card.

Hi girls! It is really expensive, I felt that too... I did only three cycles of IUI in the States. And my DE said I needed IVF. It was really depressing. I am a middle school teacher and my husband is a coach. We are not rich at all! Then I decided to search for the alternatives. I heard that few women, unfortunately, get pregnant after the first cycle... For me, the only option now is to go abroad for the treatment. The living cost in many Central American or Eastern European countries is low. Yet, they have good and quite famous fertility clinics. I cannot share my full experience, as I am just starting my journey. So far, I am preparing my passport and all the necessary things for traveling. Hope, it will work. Good luck to you all! I am really looking forward to sharing some good news with you!

Hi Shortee! I am so sorry for your loss! It must be terrible, it's even hard to imagine what you are going through. I am sure you have many fears. But I know so many successful stories of my friends on fertility treatment. Therefore, I really want to cheer you up!

And hello everyone! Really, taking a loan for many people is the last option. Thiese issues are rarely covered by the insurance. I also heard about European clinics a lot. My friend did her IVF in Ukraine, and she was satisfied. It was cheaper than it would be in the US, even with the travel cost. You may also concider other options, like Greece or Israel. But I don't know how much is there. Sure, it is some risk to go abroad, but I would concider it as an adventure. I am sure it would be a really life changing experience whatever you choose! I also wish everybody here the best of luck!
