Many people say that there’s no price too big to stop you from having children. Unfortunately there is a price tag when you are infertile and a very large one to boot. Most insurance plans do not cover infertility treatments, which means some enormous bills for these couples.
Dave and I were told that we have less then a 3% chance of naturally conceiving so we are now considering 2 options to grow our family. Option 1 is in vetro with an egg donor and option 2 is adoption.
Option 1 – roughly $30,000
Option 2 – $20,000 +
So for those that think this I say to you – Please make your check payable to me and I’ll take care of the rest. But remember there is no guarantee that it will work.
I hope someday this will not be the case and every couple will be able to have children and not experience the stress, loss and grief that I have experienced. Not only do I have to come to terms with the fact that I may never have my own biological child but I have to stress over how we are going to pay for it. This truly SUCKS!
