New Plan - Plan F

Well the plan has completely changed.  I am calling this Plan F since its our 6th try/change.  We will now be going to a doc in NY and probably doing IVF.  I talked to them Tuesday and scheduled a phone consult for Nov 7th.  They were soooo nice and my appt is with the main doctor.  He is the one who open/created the 3 fertility centers he has.  They emailed me paperwork and sign on information to fill out patient information to prepare for our appt. (which I still need to do)  Oh and guess what..... the consult is FREE!!  I was totally shocked.  We have gotten nothing for free during this struggle.  I think this says a lot for their center.  I just feel so good about this now.  Monday was such a bad day after hearing how much money our IVM would be so I decided to make that Negative a Positive.  This just feels right.

Everything I have heard/read about this center is great.  I love that they have a fb page and people have left positive feedback.  Also they put all their pricing on their website so I believe there won't be any curve balls thrown at us regarding money anyways.  I think there will always be other curve balls when dealing with fertility because nothing ever goes as plan with it.  This place is much cheaper.  IVF at Dr R's he said was 18,000 and since he under quotes as I have learned its probably closer to 25,000.  Well at this new center it's 5,000 plus meds which they say is about 3,000 and monitoring which they charge 750 for.  Plus we can save 10 percent by prepaying!  Also we can buy multiple IVFs for cheaper.  Which we might do. I just want to find out more details about that first.  Oh and included with that 5,000 is a FET as well. 

Now the only downfall is I have to call and cancel my appts at Dr. Rs.  I just really don't want to call and do that, but it has to be done soon. 

If you can't tell I am so happy and excited with this choice which is not like me. Usually I am nervous and freaking out with changes.  So this just seems right in so many ways.  I hope my gut is right and we will be pregnant soon!!

  1. OMG, this plan sounds awesome! I think I know which this clinic this is - they have amazing resources online as well. I hope you will find the right support and will have an exciting new plan for your IVF very soon! This is about the price range we had with our cycle abroad. Pretty reasonable. I am excited for you!!!

    2. This sounds like it may be the place we have been going to for the past year ... if you have any questions I would be more than happy to help if I can. If it is the same place there are definitely some good and some bad things about them. Maybe I can give you some tips in dealing with them that will help. Either way, I wish you luck. We are heading into our 3rd FET very soon.

  2. That does sound great and I agree- putting the prices up is a great sign and it makes it so much easier for you to budget. It's so basic but so many clinics don't do it and I don't understand: what's the big secret?

    We bought a multiple IVF package deal. It was more expensive up front but it is saving us tons of money and anxiety now. My DH initially didn't want to spend more and we had the $ go-round but I insisted and now we both agree a package deal with IVF makes good sense.

    How many FET's do you get with your cycle? Do the fees cover storage for sperm/eggs/embies or is that separate? Storage is separate for us.

    1. 1 FET and 1 year of storage for the embryos is included for each IVF

      My only guess is on it being secret at some places is that they don't charge everyone the same price.

      They offer 2 IVFs for 7500 and 3 for 9000 I just got to look into the details before I decide what we are going to do.
