ARMS is excited to announce a new program that will dramatically increase our patient’s likelihood of having a baby by accessing more successful treatment at a much lower cost.
We know that in-vitro Fertilization (IVF) is the most successful way for any patient to get pregnant using their own eggs in any given month. However, we also understand that the main reason patients choose not to do IVF is the expense. The cost can be anywhere from $10,000 to $13,000 plus the cost of medications which can range from $3,000 to $7,000 depending on how much medication is needed.
Today, we are introducing a program called “Shared IVF” which reduces the cost of an IVF cycle to only $5,000 plus the cost of medications and any required pretesting. Just call us at (602) 351-5327 to discuss or click to request more information.
The plan is simple – a patient who can be predicted to be a good producer of eggs, shares some of her eggs with women who have poor egg numbers and/or quality. While this idea has been around for a long time, it has not been widely used because of the length of time it took in matching patients.
Fortunately, this has all changed with the emergence of the ability to freeze eggs and place them in an egg bank.
Now patients can do a cycle and use some eggs fresh for themselves and then freeze the rest. If they get pregnant or for some other reason they do not want to use the eggs they have frozen, they can be turned over to an egg bank immediately for a couple in need of donor eggs to use somewhere else in the world.
If the couple does not get pregnant, they can use their frozen eggs and only pay the normal charges to thaw, fertilize, culture and transfer those eggs.
A patient who wants to participate in our “Shared IVF” program would need to meet the same standards as any egg donor, the most important being age: 21 – 32.
Please remember our “Tell-a-Friend” program, too! For every friend you refer to us that becomes a patient you receive a $100 credit toward treatment at ARMS. Your friend receives $100 of credit towards treatment if the initial plan is to not do IVF. If your friend chooses initially to do IVF, they receive a $500 credit making the initial cost of IVF only $4,500!
