Why Do Fertility Treatments Cost So Much???

An average fresh IVF cycle using your
own eggs and your husband's sperm
costs $14,000 - $17,000! Each time
you do it!
Some insurances cover it and some
do not.

If you need donor "anything",
your insurance may cover
it or they may not cover
a thing and then you are
expected to pay out of pocket!

Isn't it bad enough that you are
having so many problems getting
pregnant?  And then to top it off,

all those "wish list" items on
your baby registry you have to make
a freaking decision such as "should I buy
a house or should I 'buy'
a pregnancy????

No one should have to make a
decision like that..............

If insurance pays for birth control,
abortions, Viagra, difficult pregnancies
and neonatal care, they should have
to pay for reproductive technology.
Otherwise that is discrimination
against women who cannot get
pregnant in the conventional way.
