So I said last Friday I was going to call my doc and make all my appts..... well they were closed so I had to do it today. A blessing in disguise I guess because it would have ruined my weekend. I never imagined they would tell me what they did. I got all my appts set up no problem, but then I asked about cost so that I could have the money ready. Well the doc told us at our appt everything would cost 8000. I told him my insurance wouldn't cover anything and I wanted to know how much it all would be total and that is what he said. Well I didnt believe him and budgeted for 10,000 thinking that surely would be enough. Well I was very wrong. All my appts before I even start the cycle will cost $970. Then what I have to pay at my first ultrasound for the IVM will be $9,900. Then we have to have 2 vials of ICI sperm 900 dollars total. I still have NO idea why they need two???? You need less sperm for IVM especially using ICSI which I asked if that was included in the 9,900 and was told yes so why do I need two vials of sperm??? The lady couldn't give me an answer!
So we are looking at almost 12,000 without the cost of medications. Right now we don't have that and I am worried about doing it with this clinic. Now I just don't feel right about it. I feel lied to and like they are trying to get extra money especially when they are making me buy 2 vials.
I have till Nov 12th to make up my mind. I am going to look into another clinic and see if I can get a consult with them. There I believe IVF is cheaper, but I don't think they do IVM which I don't like. I guess I just have to figure out is what's best for us. Right now I have no idea!!
