Quoting MIracleLove:" Out of curiosity and for those who are paying for IVF out of pocket, how much did you spend for one cycle. ... [snip!] ... spend for one cycle. One of the nurses explained to us that one cycle will cost approx. 13k, but we can get 2 cycles for 20k."
Both my REs had very reasonable prices although I can't remember how much it was for just the cycle. With my first we were using my eggs and had to spend about $6,000 just on the meds. We got a credit card with 0% interest for one year and paid it off before that year was up. With my second it was with donor eggs so that was a considerable addition to the cost, although the meds were much less. For that one my parents helped out and we had family friends who were psychologist and lawyer do the psych eval and contract for no cost and since my sister was the donor she didn't require compensation.
