Mucho Dinero

I just got my cost breakdown for IVF #1. When you're paying it bit by bit, it doesn't seem so bad, but man, when it's laid out in front of you all at once, it's more than a little painful.

IVF - $9,270
ICSI + Assisted Hatching - $2,150
Meds - $5,836.93
Acupuncture - $950

GRAND TOTAL: $18,206.93

M*thaf***er. I will be pissed if this doesn't work.

That's brutul! I was lucky to have most of it paid for. I do hope for your sake and others in your shoes that the new health care plan has some (if not all) fertility coverage. Good luck with this cycle! Stay positive!

I wonder if IVF success rates would increase if it didn't cost such a freakin' fortune. That amount of money obviously adds to the pressure we already feel, and we all know that stress and pressure have major negative effects on fertility.

So I guess the point is, try not to focus on the money, if that's possible.
