And where did you have it done?
Looks like this is the route we'll be taking and I was curious as to how much it'll cost, out of pocket.

How much did your IUDI cost?
14-01-2012 07:08 #2
Ours was through Monash IVF.
Cost us $2600 upfront, included the sperm ($400) plus the medication, scans and blood tests.
We got $643 back from medicare.
If they cycle is successful, (after the 14th DPIUI) then the next scan and further bloods have to be paid for.
However they charge a fee of almost $1000 if your cycle is unsuccessful

It sure is!! I was so upset when I left the appointment with the payment office. Somehow in the 18months we saw them prior to the iui, they failed to tell us!
Took some of our excitement away too, after having a real shot at getting a bub after two years, it was now given a new thing to stress about!
No fees aside from 2 blood tests (5w and 7w $130 each) and the scan
(7w $190) for a successful outcome

we are is brisbane, which is supposed to be more expensive than sydney? not sure, anyway we did IUI not IUDI, but it cost us approx $750, getting aprrox 400 back. there was an extra 300$ fee for IUDI i read about, and that didn't include the sperm. i reckon ring around to get prices - or maybe more people here can tell you how much they spent. There is a thread about IUDI started by Catemer i think, the girls there may be able to help you with their costs.

Sperm is $950 a straw here!
Ill go find catemer's thread thank you for the tip
RWS, that's appalling! Hey, pay an extra $1000 for the privilege of not being pregnant

I'm assuming Monash have cheaper sperm because they seem to have quite a few donors... We had 2 pages of them to choose from, about 20ish donors.
Where DS is harder to come by I guess they can charge more?
Prices vary SO much between clinics and states, it would be nice if it were regulated by the federal government!

Yes I believe the majority of sperm at fertility first hurstville is From the USA

Ahh so you get stung the import fee too.
We would have loved to import but Vic law doesn't allow it

I agree, There should be way more regulation. I've just taken out PHI insurance to make the costs a bit more manageable. I hope it doesn't take too many cycles to fall preg otherwise It'll get super expensive!
