Have you thought about in vitro fertilization but are concerned about the investment? The Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine offers a package of three fresh IVF cycles as well as the transfer of all cryopreserved embryos. This package includes intracytoplasmic sperm injection as well as assisted hatching if indicated, and it includes cryopreservation of embryos if available. Completion of all fresh and cryo IVF cycles must occur within a sixteen month period. Transfer of all cryopreserved embryos must occur before another fresh IVF cycle is begun. Cost for this package is $14,500, not including the cost of fertility medications. Medication costs range from $2,600 to $4,000 depending on patient’s age, weight and ovulatory status. There are no refunds whether pregnancy occurs before three completed fresh cycles or before completion of all cryopreserved embryos.
Although this program is available to anyone, this program is ideal for patients with a lower than optimal probability of success. When one considers the high pregnancy rates at the Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine for both fresh and frozen embryos (http://www.cdc.gov/art) we believe this package may represent the best IVF values in the country.
