I agree our REs deserve a lot (especially embryologists).
But with all medicine, it seems like so much is overpriced and it saddens me that it feels like IVF is only for the "well off" as insurance rarely covers anything. A simple consult here runs $500 at most of the clinics. Not that I don't feel like REs deserve the money, I just wish MA was more assessable and rates were lower knowing 95% of people are paying OOP (unlike other medical procedures). It just feels like once again IF is more comparable to plastic surgery than an actual medical condition in this country :eyes:

Oh I lied. I did research and it (Medrol) was about anti-rejection. This reminded me. NASTY stuff!

I know all of us would pay what it takes to complete our families. We have and are. If the success rates did go up and so did the prices I would have paid for that too. In fact, knowing the success rate is higher is worth A LOT!

I just wish insurance would cover more. Most of us are middle class or lower and it's frustrating insurance will pay for BCP and things to prevent pregnancy but they wont help build families. Even when you live in a State that says they endorse it and it has to be part of the insurance plan - employers still get around it by electing the plan that doesn't utilize the expensive coverage.

When we met, my DH made it very clear he wasn't going to drop big money on having baby. I've moved him along the chain of thought a bit, but he's still been pretty set on he just cannot see himself dropping 12-15k on IVF... not unless the chances of a baby were higher than they already are.

He and I were talking about this discovery yesterday, and he asked more questions than I had answers for.. but his final thoughts on it were he'd be much more willing to work himself half to death an extra few months for a higher chance of IVF working if we needed it.

But if this study and possible research can convince my tightwad that IVF might be an option, I can only imagine how much easier it would make the decision for those who are less on the fence about it.
