I was just looking at older ivf forums and found one which compared $$ at different clinics. Admittedly it started in 2009 but I am horrified to see how cheap some of them are compared to my incredibly expensive clinic. Am I being ripped off ??
A full ivf cycle with ICSI costs me roughly $9500 - out of pocket about $3300 (plus $600 if they freeze any embies)
The hospital and anaesthetist are around $1800 - out of pocket $100 because of private health cover
A FET costs me out of pocket around $1500
This whole journey has completely destroyed me financially and now it looks like I've gone to the dearest clinic in the universe ??? And if the FET fails, my next step is a donor egg cycle which I'm told will have me out of pocket around $15,000 ! They have a 6-12 month wait which seems remarkably short to me so that may make it worthwhile, but $15,000 ?!?!?!? This is really making me cranky this morning. >
