The cost of IVF

We understand that cost of treatment is a big consideration when you are thinking about IVF. You deserve the best possible care and a transparent presentation of associated costs throughout your fertility journey is important; that is what you will find at CARE Fertility - we’re here to support you, to provide a clear breakdown of costs with no hidden charges, and to answer any questions that you might have.


What is IVF?

IVF stands for in vitro fertilisation. In vitro is the term for a process performed outside of your body, usually in a test tube or culture dish. In IVF treatment, an egg is removed from the ovaries and fertilised with sperm in a laboratory.

The treatment process involves stimulating the ovaries with hormonal medication to produce lots of eggs. These eggs are then collected to be fertilised, and if successful, one or two of the embryos will be selected and placed back into the uterus.


What are our IVF success rates?

We understand that success rates are an important consideration when deciding which clinic to have treatment at.

It is important to remember that everyone has unique circumstances that can influence how successful treatment is; therefore, we recommend that you view our success rates as a guide.

IVF cost breakdown

At your first consultation, we will work with you to create a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs, including a breakdown of all estimated costs. At CARE Fertility, we want to ensure that we provide value for money and that our fees are transparent with no hidden costs, so you are able to make an informed decision.

Many of our patients use funding packages and to make sure that you receive a seamless experience, and remove the need to go to a third party provider, we created CAREpay, our own range of funding packages.

We’ve broken down the costs of IVF into three distinct categories: pre-treatment costs, IVF treatment costs and freezing costs.

Pre-treatment costs include your initial consultation, your scan, semen analysis and fertility assessments. These costs range from £230 for your initial consultation to between £265 and £535 for your fertility assessment. A scan costs between £195 to £250, and a semen analysis costs £175.

IVF treatment costs include IVF, IVF using donated eggs, and IVF related additional treatment costs such as surgical sperm retrieval, CAREmaps or IUI.  The price ranges from between £3,450 to £3,750 for IVF and £6,300 to £10,750 for IVF using donor eggs.

You may wish to freeze your embryos as part of your treatment. Embryos freeze costs £320 and there is an annual storage charge of £300.

You can find the price list here for your own CARE clinic here: IVF & Fertility Treatment Cost UK | CARE Fertility.

We treat both private and NHS patients. If you would like to know more about NHS funding, please visit our NHS funding page.
