Uncovering the hidden costs of IVF

The costs involved in IVF treatment can often be confusing and overwhelming. With most IVF clinics only advertising their 'base price' for treatment, we uncover and remove the hidden costs which can add thousands on to your treatment.

Uncovering the hidden costs of IVF

When considering IVF, the cost of private treatment is often a big deciding factor for many people.

The cost of IVF in the UK is known to be highly expensive and BBC’s Panorama series, which was aired last year, also showed some fertility clinics not being transparent about their costs.

Most patients who are ready to start fertility treatment have spent a lot of time researching and comparing clinics, treatment options and prices. At abc ivf, we believe that all clinics should be 100% transparent about the total cost of treatment from the very start in order to give women and couples the opportunity to make a well informed decision.

Sadly, most IVF clinics only advertise their base cycle price which is not indicative of what the total treatment cost is likely to be.

Treatment costs often not included in the ‘base prices’ advertised:

  • Screening blood tests
  • Monitoring scans/blood tests
  • Diagnostic tests
  • Medication
  • HFEA fee
  • Sedation fees
  • ICSI (where needed)
  • Any additional procedures/techniques

When adding everything needed within an IVF cycle, women and couples often end up paying thousands more than the advertised ‘base price’.

At abc ivf we want to be 100% honest and transparent about our prices, so we’ve created an All-Inclusive IVF Package (£2,500) or ICSI Package (£3,600) which includes absolutely everything you will need.

No hidden costs or surprises!

Top 12 infertility blogs you need to be following

Social media certainly has its flaws but it has also weirdly and wonderfully connected me to hundreds of like-minded individuals with whom I am united by one shared mission – a baby. I spent over a year trying to conceive before discovering the online community that existed at my very fingertips and this community, with its army of fertility warriors, became my biggest support network.

What NOT to do in the 2 weeks post Embryo Transfer

The Embryo Transfer procedure of an IVF cycle is one of the most exciting but also stressful parts of the entire journey. On one hand, you’re finished with the painful injections, the agonising wait to see how your embryos develop and most importantly, you’re almost at the end of the entire IVF process.
