    Default Cost of egg collection

    Can anyone tell me the upfront cost of egg collection, for you?

    We are about to start an IVF cycle and I want to make sure the rough idea of costs I have is remotely accurate.

    Thanks

    It's so different everywhere so a little hard to say. Give your clinic a call and ask for a cost list, most will happily give it.

    Totally depends on your clinic? Usually, they have their fees up on their website for stimulated cycle.

    Usually you pay one fee which includes the meds, blood tests, monitoring then your EPU plus transfer.

    I'm with Genea and I think ours was about 12k and we got about 5 or 6k back? If you don't have private health insurance it's about $1500 extra for the day hospital fees. You also have other extras like freezing of extra embryos, ours was $700. Or extra if you need frozen sperm.

    Actual cycle at my Syd clinic in Nov was:

    Cycle 5590
    Retrieval 650
    ICSI 650
    Embryo freeze 300
    Anaesthetic 550 (has been up to 650)
    Hospital excess 250
    Plus any extra drugs (lucrin, clexane, saizen etc that aren't included as normal treatment)

    It varies a lot between clinics though!

    Thanks.

    The list says $6280 and additional cost include donor sperm ($935) and day surgery. Day surgery is what I don't know how much to expect. I've read around $1600+ anaesthetist? Does that seem about right?

    We don't have PHI as we didn't want to wait 12 months to be covered for IVF.

    Fairly sure i'll be on a pretty standard cycle so don't expect I'll need any out of the ordinary drugs. Will see I guess.

    Usually you don't but sometimes for whatever reason you don't respond to the standard ones, you might need different ones added in. Hopefully you won't need it though.

    Yup prob bout $1600 for epu and could be $300-500 for transfer, depends on the clinic. You'll get some of the cycle fees rebated quite quickly though.

    Fortunately my in laws have offered to help us out if we need it. I think we will be okay, but just not 100% on all the hidden costs.



    This is really blardy hard.
