No, not in the military. Just liked to move around a lot. Insurance would be awesome. Did you know that if you become a foster parent, you pay nothing? Then you can adopt after a certain amount of time. The state usually gives you money too to help with baby costs. So spend all your money on invitro then if it doesn't work you have another option! I know it will work though

Leslie....ummm.....dare I say it.....but I'm 41.
Hi Glinda! I don't think I will go the IVF route, I was just curious about the costs. I am popping into the adoption board on occasion as DH and I are almost ready to take out first foster baby! Hope things are going well for you.

Alicia do you live in MA? I was under the impression in MA you didn't have to pay too much for IVF. I have a few friends that live there (I grew up there) and didn't have to pay hardly anything for their cycles.

I know someone mentioned they lived in Maine, but was going through Boston IVF so I'm not sure if you live out of state also.

Good Luck.

I am not sure if I would qualify, my doctor sent me the letter from Boston IVF in case we are interested in seeing if we meet the criteria.

Is the 10,000 including medications or is that a separate cost?

I paid around $2500 in Japan for the entire cycle, and they freeze the embryos for the life of your marriage, I was lucky to be stationed there. Will be going back to do a FET in August
