Quest for Parenthood: The Real Costs

JoTo PR client, Dr. Mark Trolice of Fertility CARE: The IVF Center was featured in an article on  Yahoo Lifestyleexploring costs associated with the directions couples take in their quest for parenthood titled This is How Much IVF, Surrogacy & Adoption Really Cost.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 10 percent of women in the United States aged 15 to 44 have difficulty conceiving or carrying a child to term. That’s more than 6.1 million women in America. So, if you’ve been trying for a year or more to build your family (or six months if you’re over the age of 35) without success, what should you do? Doctors recommend looking into fertility options at this point. But what are the options, and what kind of price points are we talking?

Intrauterine insemination is a common first-step fertility treatment before moving on to IVF. The procedure involves placing sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization with the goal of increasing the number of sperm that can reach the fallopian tubes. according to Dr. Mark P. Trolice, director of Fertility Care: The IVF Center, women who have an ovulation dysfunction and whose partner has normal sperm analysis do not need an IUI. Likewise, one IUI achieves the same pregnancy rate as performing two in a row, which is good news for your budget since the cost ranges from $1,000 to $2,000.

In vitro fertilization is a fertility treatment in which eggs are extracted from the woman to manually combine with a sperm sample in a laboratory to create an embryo. According to Trolice, there are a couple of ways to increase the success of your IVF investment. Trolice provides a couple of sound pieces of advice for women considering IVF for fertility treatments in the article.
