IUI vs. IVF Print Version

I agree with Jeanne (3Princes). It was never near $4,000 for us either. The most expensive individual cost for us was the sperm spinning/wash on the day of the insemination and that was $185. Each cycle for us was less than $1,800--and that includes EVERYTHING.

Thanks Ladies, I am hoping that you are closer with price, I would really like the cheaper $ amount. But the price we were quoted was just over $3000. I was told that insurance will not cover any part of it, since all the ultra sounds and medication will be going towards infertility and not diagnosis. I guess the only thing we can do is see how things go. I really am praying for this to work, but at this point I have learned not to hold my breath... Thanks for all the support!

Well... we went ahead with the IUI. We did the insemination on the 15th, and now is just the waiting game... I didn't have a hard time for the first couple days, but now I am driving myself nuts thinking about everything and waiting to find out if the procedure worked. Anyone have any good solutions for passing the time during this waiting time?

Well the first try of IUI was a failure... big fat negative when AF showed up a day early. I think not getting pregnant when doing the IUI is even harder than it was all the other months... I just don't understand why this won't work! I am struggling to keep a positive outlook and attitude about this. Things for the next couple months don't look promising for planning out the inseminations, vacations that were previously planned... I wish my body would just cooperate.... Sorry for the venting...
