Q: My husband and I are considering adding to our family. I am 42 and we have twins. I prefer not to have another set of twins. What are the costs for IVF using my own egg (roughly)?

Response from Natalie Burger, M.D., Texas Fertility Center:

A:  The national average for the cost of a fresh IVF cycle is $10,000 plus the cost of medication, which itself can range from $3,000 to $6,000.  As each situation is unique, some patients/couples may require additional IVF treatment steps that may add cost.

For instance, technology now allows us to genetically test embryos so that only chromosomally normal embryos are transferred into the uterus.  This increases the chance of successful pregnancy and significantly lowers the chance of miscarriage. This additional testing may add an additional $4,000 to $5,000 to the overall cost.
