Just wanted to know rough prices for the drugs to stimulate my ovaries for ivf, can’t find pricelists for our clinic so was just wondering how much they were for you? I will be using my own eggs btw. Thsnkyou

Depends what protocol you use and other factors but mine were around £550 6 years ago.

Totally depends on your protocol, my was about £1200 at first plus extra £400 for unforseen extras (stims dose was increased), plus £100ish more to maintain the pregnancy (which later MC). But my FET was much cheaper as all the expensive drugs are the stims. Unfortunately it's quite hard to know how much they will cost in the end, best to put more cash aside just in case.

Thankyou ladies. Me and my oh are just trying to work out how much about we will need for a cycle if our nhs free cycle fails as we only have one go and it’s icsi for male factor. So we want to be realistic and have back up money for 1-2 cycles. X

Have you looked into Access Fertility? You pay upfront for multi cycles and get a full or part refund if it doesn't work, but this is not include the drugs.

Average around £1,500, have seen between £800-£2,400, it's your stimulation that makes up the bulk

I haven’t @Lillyleaf are they a natural/mild ivf? As have looked at one clinic that did the same but was only mild ivf which I don’t want to do.

Thankyou @lauren83 wow that’s a lot! Didn’t expect the drugs to cost so much tbh! We are so grateful that we have at least one round for free on the nhs.

We have spoke about egg sharing as the price is massively reduced but it is a big decision and not one I will be doing lightly.

£2,400 is definitely the top end, if you haven't been diagnosed with low ovarian reserve and are likely to be on a lower dose of Stims you shouldn't be looking at that. The Access packages can save you a substantial amount in the event it takes you more that one cycle to have success, some have a refund element if no live birth and some are just standard multicycle (the refund ones have a medical review so aren't available to everyone) as for egg sharing it does give you heavily discounted treatment you could be looking at £1,000-£2,000 compared to £6,000 but I know it's a huge thing to consider

I paid 2k during my my complete stimming cycle. Approx 1k for my medicated Frozen cycle. Future stimming cycles will probably cost in the region of 3k.

But I take a lot of drugs - the usual suspects for IVF plus other stuff. I also did the intralipid transfusions.

Mine were around £1100 for short protocol ivf
I would say though we were maybe a bit naive about how much it would cost - we budgeted for 3 full cycles but ended up having to do ICSI then a freeze all so had extra transfer fees plus extra medication so I think we will only manage 2 full cycles now out of a budget of £20k - that includes transfers though (2 transfers with this cycle and holing for at least 2 on the next one)

Depending what drugs /amount but mine worked out £150 a day - for 10 days so £1500. Then needed think another 2 days on one cycle so another £300

I've just paid just over £1,000.00 for mine. Although you will need to know what drugs you are on, my clinic (CRGW) d have a pricelist for all the drugs on their website and use Stork Fertility to deliver the drugs so that may give you an idea on costs.

Try fertility2U website as they're the cheapest.
