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
- 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 situation we are currently in is a cause of concern for everyone, but particularly those who have had to have their fertility treatments put on hold. If you are in this situation and found that to access the things that would normally help you cope is restricted, practicing positive thinking and mindfulness could help with managing any concerns or stress you are currently dealing with.
I know that this is a frustrating time for our patients who have been waiting to start treatment, but we are here to support you as much as possible during this time. Here are a few suggestions that you can do during lockdown so that you are as prepared as possible for when you begin your treatment.
