  • The fee for DI (Donor Insemination) varies depending on how/where you do it. If you do at home inseminations it will obviously be cheaper than if done through a doctor or clinic. If you do use a doctor/clinic it depends on how much monitoring is provided and how much your insurance will cover. Costs would therefore range from approx. $500 to $3500 depending on method/doctor/clinic/insurance.

    As far as I know there is no age limit if you are doing at home inseminations, however some clinics may have an upper or lower age limit.

  • We wanted to use a known donor with the clinic monitoring. They wouldn't because our donor was 41 and the cut-off was 40, so we ended up using an unknown donor. With the sample, bloodwork, ultrasound and insemination, I think it was around $1000 a month, plus fertility drugs, but mine were covered by insurance.
    Hope this helps!

  • I think it's different everywhere. Ours was 1000. to join a family mamagement program and then 400 each month of trying.
