    Question the best military IVF hospital?

    After searching for several Ivf clinics I found out about Walter Reed and couple others good and affordable hospitals that do Ivf.

    Does anyone can give some advice on which hospital is best to do Ivf?

    I heard that gender selection is not an option on those military hospitals either..Is that right?

    I am new here... I need help!!

    Hello!
    Just wanted to welcome you to the board.
    I hope your stay here will be short.
    I'm not sure on the gender selection. You have probably heard right though. I doubt Tricare would cover that part--my guess would be they don't even have that option at the MTF's doing the IVF's.
    I wish you the best of luck though and hope your IVF is successful.

    gender selection? hmm, hadnt thought about that one......I am pretty sure you cant even do a frozen cycle at Wilford Hall (at least that is what I have been told) so I doubt they would cover gender selection.

    Yes, I know that they would not pay for the gender selection. The result expected is a baby, doesnt matter what gender...

    Since we already have 2 boys, a girl would be a great addition to the family ....but i heard that they dont do gender selection even if you pay from your own pocket....

    Michelle -

    I have cycled at both Walter Reed and Wilford Hall (in San Antonio). They both have good programs, but WR is where I have had my success. Not sure if assisted hatching will be an issue for you, but when I was at WH they told me they didn't feel the research supported doing it (so they don't offer it except maybe on rare rare occassion). For me AH seems to make a big difference (some type of pg whenever we did AH and BFN when we didn't). Many have had success at WH too, and it is less expensive there compared to WR. Neither offers gender selection as far as I know.

    How many military hospitals treatment infertility? I know Winn in Ft. Stewart goes as far as medications, but when it comes to IUI and beyond, they refer off post.

    Please correct me if I am wrong!

    I looked up the one in Hawaii (Tripler Army Medical Center) they didn't have any information on infertility.
    Walter Reed in Washingtion DC
    Balboa Naval Hosptial San Diego CA
    Wilford Hall Lackland AFB TX
    Those are the only military hosptials that I found on my search, also, there's a fertility hospital that offers a military discount for military patients. OMg..i can't remember the name now..Grrr The web address is www.sart.org
    I believe that is the right address. It's just to far for DH and I to travel. Walter Reed is the closest for us. I hope it can help those of you that are close. They have clinics in NJ, NJ, NV, CA, OH and MO I believe.

    I called the haveababy.com clinic and yes they offer a military discount. But they didnt give me the price by phone.

    Does anyone have an idea of How much is Ivf there?
