    Question cost of iui??

    hello,

    i was just wondering if anyone could give me a aprox. cost of a iui, we have no insurance that covers infertility so it will all be out of pocket. i know cost prolly differs from state to state and with different dr.s, but if someone could give me some sort of idea, it would be very helpful to me.

    thank you

    cost of iui

    I am just starting out with IUI. My insurance didn't cover any of the meds. I am taking the gonal-f injections, and thank god they had samples. I originally was supposed to take the follistem, but that was about $500.00. The Hsg shot is running me $82.00, and the IUI itself the Dr. said would be around $350.00. Hope that helps you at least a little.

    I'm a newbie at this, so all I can tell you is the procedure itself is $324. I won't know how much my Follistim will be until after my appointment tomorrow. I'll let you know what I find out.

    Well it really depends! Are you using your husbands sperm or donor? Are you taking meds? Are you just using an OPK to time it? There are so many variances to this question.

    FWIW - These #s are from my fertility clinic in Washington state. I didn't shop around for other clinics so don't know if these are high/low but would guess they are consistent with the other clinics in this area.

    I'm doing natural IUI's - so no meds, no ultrasound, no bloodword. Just my fertility monitor!!!

    Semen prep - $225 (This is with DH's sperm. Not paying for donor)
    Insemination - $175
    --------------------------
    Total = $400

    The cost will definitely differ from person to person depending on their meds, u/s, bloodwork, etc.

    My u/s and bloodwork are covered, but I pay out of pocket for meds and the procedure. Here is my breakdown per cycle:

    Procedure = $505
    Bravelle = $929.40
    HCG = $39.87
    Viag. Suppositories = $380
    Prog. Suppositories = $45
    _____________________
    Total = $1899.27

    Getting a BFP = PRICELESS

    Sorry, that was cheezy, but I keep hoping every cycle! I week to go in my current 2ww!

    Sperm wash $140
    Progesterone $10 (covered by ins)

    Taking a break for now
