As with IVF, patients should know the cost of an IUI cycle if they wish to compare clinics. But different clinics have different philosophies on what they choose to include in their IUI cycle costs and what additional items they advise or require their patients to add.
Here at Concept, our philosophy is to keep things simple; we rarely advise patients to take any add-ons because we think they are usually not necessary, not proven, or are unlikely to improve the final result. We appreciate that patients, after a failed cycle elsewhere, often want to know what else they can do to improve their chances but often the best advice is to understand the statistics and try another simple cycle, rather than pay for a selection of expensive, irrelevant, extras. This allows us to give a reasonably accurate forecast of the total cost of an IUI cycle at Concept.
It is important to know this when looking at costs because anything outside a cycle is usually charged as an additional item. A cycle starts on “day 1” which is when menstruation starts, and lasts until the day of insemination.
