In Ontario, one cycle of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) costs about $7750 - $12,250 ($250 for semen analysis, $2500 - $7000 for medications and $5000 for the IVF). Prices are similar across Canada.
In women under 40, 28-30% of embryo transfers result in a pregnancy.
In Ontario, the Provincial government pays for three cycles of IVF (not including medications) for women with bilateral blocked fallopian tubes. This is not the case anywhere else in Canada.
Intrauterine insemination costs $450 in addition to the cost of medications ($27 - $2500).
In addition to monetary costs, there are enormous time costs associated with infertility treatment that may disrupt work schedules and threaten income and job security.
