A while back, when we finished up our slew of IUIs & two failed IVFs, I wrote an updated blog post on what infertility had cost us money wise. You can find that full post, broken down in details, here: https://wordpress.com/post/disorderlylove.wordpress.com/1938
The total at that point in time came out to be $26, 647.48.
Since then, we’ve had the following expenses:
-Laproscopy with anesthesia: $1000 (insurance covered the additional cost).
-Femera (2): $30.00
-1 follicle ultrasound (when I did not ovulate on my own): $200
-The Stork: $79.99
-Progesterone after positive HCG: $15.00
-Blood work through the ER to re-check my HCG $300.00 (Our insurance did not cover this as I was out of town & we just have terrible insurance all around).
-ER visit when I was having a miscarriage while on vacation: $300
-Miscarriage blood workup: FREE! The one thing that has been covered since it was blood work (blood work is free for clinic employees). I believe, had we not had insurance, this would’ve cost us around $800.00
-Follicle Ultrasound: $200
-The Stork (2): 159.98
Total additional cost: 29, 042.45
Also, I cannot resist pointing out that, after the 29, it reads 042…which is where we’re at right now. So, even if our infertility journey FINALLY ends tomorrow, that will be how much we’ve spent at this point.
Infertility is a ridiculously expensive thing, more so than I would have ever imagined. Fortunately, 15 states do cover infertility TX…unfortunately for us, we don’t happen to live in one of those states…though we border two of them..how fair is that? lol
