Hi all,

I'm deliberating where to go for next IVF.  Could you please tell me how much your treatment was at ARGC and what you spent your money on.  I'm just trying to get an idea of how much financially I could be looking at.  Many thanks to all you lovely helpful ladies.  Jo xxx :)

Hi there

I can't answer you fully as I'm not that far through the process but it really does depend on what you need. If you end up needing IVIG and things then it can be very expensive but if that's going to be what it takes to get your dream then it's better than throwing away money elsewhere where it might be cheaper but you are less likely for it to work!

So far I've had  my consultation and the monitored cycle. My immune tests came back with a problem so I am now on Humira before we can tx and I have spent a grand total of £2249.74
this includes the travel to and from London which has come to £138.90. Drugs (Humira) £807.84 (for just 2 injections!  :eek: ). Blood tests £993
Scan £993 and initial consultation £200

So it's not going to be cheap but having looked at their prices they are actually cheaper than my previous clinic it just adds up to more as they keep a closer eye on you and do so much more! They haven't put their prices up since 2005 apparently!

Talking to other girls they often seem to spend at least £10000  per go and some if they have to have everything and extra scans when it has worked come out closer to £20000. Here's hoping that you don't need it all and that it works first go! (sadly for me it looks like I'm going to need the works as I need the Humira now and they say will probably need IVIG too!  :mad: )

GOod luck

Congratulations on your twins! May I ask about the cost of your pregnancy scans please. Are you tied in to having these with ARGC? Do you have to sign a contract to say so? What happens if you move away and cannot get to London?

Many thanks,

Loui

Oh thanks so much, this is just what I needed to know!!!  The ARGC does seem to be the best to go doesn't it.  Jo xxx :)

If your issues are not FSH-related then I would say they are v good - if they are, then The Lister is a better choice for sure ;)

The pregnancy scans at ARGC are £110 from what i can remember and are over very quickly  ::) you dont get pictures either but i didnt mind at first as they made me feel at ease  :-*  You can go for your scans anywhere, but i think the ARGC like to scan you for the 6wk scan  :) i went to the birthing co in harley st as it was a tummy scan and was much longer and detailed  ::) we even got to listen to their heartbeats and got lots of pics  :-*

Good luck

£12,791.84  ^scared^ - I could email a spreadsheet of costs if you wanted to see things in more detail.
This does include 2 rounds of IVIG, ICSI, taking the embies to blastocyst etc.
I was on a lot of meds.
