when and why should we start thinking about a consult with a fertility doctor?
if you have been unable to conceive naturally for over 12 months, it may be time to see a doctor. if you’re over the age of 35 and have been unable to conceive naturally for over 6 months, then we also recommend coming in. if you have any known issues that may result in difficulty getting pregnant, like endometriosis, pcos, or a low sperm count then you should come in immediately.
how much does a fertility evaluation cost?
at mate fertility, the basic fertility assessment costs $300 for those with sperm and $300 for those with a uterus, which covers labs and an ultrasound. if the doctor decides you need a sonohysterogram, that will be another $300. most diagnostic testing will be covered by insurance, in which we will provide a superbill for to get reimbursement after treatment. it is very important to perform this detailed testing in order to figure out what’s going on.
how much does ivf cost in 2021?
the national average for an ivf cycle can range from $15,000-$25,000 for one cycle. mate fertility offers one cycle for about $10,900.
is fertility testing covered by insurance?
if you have insurance, we can most likely get some diagnostic testing covered. if you don’t have insurance, you will have to pay out of pocket for the diagnostic testing. this all depends on your specific plan. at mate we will do a benefits check for you and provide a superbill after treatment to get reimbursement.

freezing your eggs is a great solution if you want to preserve your fertility and you’re not ready to have kids right now. freezing your eggs means we will retrieve all the eggs you produce after one stimulation cycle and freeze those eggs for future use. freezing your eggs is the way of the future, as it gives you more autonomy, freedom, and time to make choices about your future family when you’re ready.
all fertility treatments fall under the category of assisted reproductive technology, or a.r.t. when you’re struggling to get pregnant naturally, want to have a child on your own, or are in a same-sex relationship, a.r.t. treatment can help you have a baby. the science of a.r.t. treatment boils down to making it easier for a sperm and egg to fertilize and for that embryo to turn into a baby. the most successful treatment option, ivf, involves fertilizing an egg in a lab, under perfect conditions, by a trained scientist. this fertilized egg, or embryo, is then transferred back into a uterus with the hopes of achieving a successful pregnancy.
