How much does a test tube baby treatment cost ?

Before starting an IVF treatment cycle , one of the first questions the patient needs to know is how much it is all going to cost .They know that the success rate is not 100% and that they may have to repeat many cycles before getting pregnant.IVF is expensive, and it's a big drain on the budget . Because it's not covered by insurance and they need to pay out of pocket , this is something which they need to be very careful about.Now many IVF clinics take out a lot of ads , and in order to lure patients, they advertise a very low rate. However, they do not explain to the patient that this is just their initial sign up rate, and that as the cycle progresses, the patients will have to keep on paying more and more. These clinics keep on extracting additional amounts during the treatment, as a result of which the total cost for the patient for that cycle balloons up so much that the poor patient end up spending twice as much as he had budgeted for !This creates even more friction between the husband and the wife, as the husband finds he just does not have enough money to spend on fulfilling his wife's dream of having a baby.This is why it's important to get an upfront cost - preferably a packaged, all-inclusive cost , so that there are no unpleasant surprises later on .This is the best way of ensuring that you don't get taken for a ride. Need help in getting pregnant ?
