The median cost of in vitro fertilization in the U.S. is currently about $11,000 to $12,000. General infertility treatments such as ovarian stimulation plus intrauterine insemination, IUI are significantly less expensive than in vitro fertilization.

However, the cheapest IVF is not always the best option . The goal is not to do IVF, it is to have a baby.If a clinic charges merely $6000 for IVF, that is certainly a lower than average price.However, if their success rates are low and it takes more cycles to have a baby- there may not be any cost savings.One successful IVF cycle for $10,000 is better than 2 cycles for $6000 each( plus medications) to have a success . Consumers of infertility and IVF services should consider doing research on the costs for in vitro fertilization and the live birth success rates at any clinic that they are considering .
