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!

The effects of our health – both physical and mental – on the outcome of IVF treatment has been heavily disputed within the IVF community for decades. For every woman who tells you her IVF was successful following a major health kick, there’s a woman who’ll tell you...

Undoubtedly, an IVF cycle is a challenging journey to navigate. Not only is it physically demanding, but your emotions are constantly changing; one minute full of worry, fear and uncertainty, and the next clinging onto excitement, luck and hope.
