At Salisbury Fertility Centre we want you to understand the costs involved with your treatment and how you will be billed. Outlined below are the various stages of the treatment cycle with the costs associated with them.
At each stage you will be asked to sign a form; which shows how much you will be invoiced for. Once you receive the invoice, you have 21 days to pay. You can pay by card, cheque or cash.
IVF/ICSI Treatment Cycle Using Donor Eggs
Stage 1 - Initial Consultation
Referral to Salisbury Fertility Centre would normally be when all the initial investigations are complete. You would both have an appointment with one of our consultants, the female partner will have a routine trans-vaginal ultrasound scan and the male partner would normally be asked to attend for a semen analysis on the same day. It is likely that during your investigations this has been done before, however our embryologists will undertake a much more detailed analysis determining the most suitable treatment for you.
There is a registration fee, which when treatment goes ahead, is deducted from the final payment.
Consultation - £190
Semen Analysis - £120
Registration Fee - £150
Stage 2 - Treatment Cycle
The treatment cycle costs include all scans, blood tests and appointments necessary during the cycle, and your sessions with our independent counsellor. The drugs required for the treatment are also included.
If ICSI is required this is normally discussed early in the treatment cycle, however if on the day of treatment (once the embryologist has seen the sample) they feel that performing ICSI with the sample would give a better outcome, they will recommend this to you.
IVF - £6250
ICSI - an additional £980
HFEA licence fee - £80
If you meet certain criteria, the Assisted Hatching (AH) technique may be suggested to you. There is a charge of £180 for AH if you choose to go ahead with this option.
If the male partner needs to have surgical sperm retrieval the cost is £1550, this includes 1 year of storage.
If the embryologists are concerned about the sample at the semen analysis stage, it may be suggested that sperm is frozen for back up at a cost of £310 for 1 year of storage.
