COST OF IUI

 

The cost of an IUI cycle varies widely among clinics in the Dallas Fort Worth area and depends on the stimulation protocol, the type of medications used and the frequency of sonogram and/or blood hormone monitoring. For many patients fertility treatment begins with an ovulation induction cycle using clomiphene or letrozole (Femara), with or without an IUI.

A typical IUI cycle usually consists of at least 2 sonograms (performed before and after medication), an HCG injection (to ovulate), an IUI (performed 1-2 days after HCG) and a progesterone level (a week after HCG to assess adequacy of ovulation). The total cost of an IUI cycle can be estimated by adding the cost of the medications, the sonograms and the IUI procedure.
