The average couple may spend between €1000 and €2,000 over the course of one year including tests, scans, consultations and treatments. Given that one round of IVF would cost approximately €4,000(excluding tests) this is a very cost-effective approach to assisted reproduction. Some specific tests, including those for advanced diagnosis of 'unexplained infertility' or recurrent miscarriage of unknown cause may be more expensive. It is important to address the root cause of infertility and to direct treatment so that your chances of achieving a natural pregnancy are maximised. All costs will be outlined to the couple before any of these tests are carried out.
