We have been accepted into a medical study that will get us the best IVF protocols such as DNA testing.  The study is out of state but we are looking at an expense of about $15,000 vs the close to $30,000 this protocol would cost!

Trying to overcome 7 years of infertility and 3 baby losses.  My husband and I are almost at our full goal to be able to get fertility treatments! We've raised $3000(update below) towards our treatment fund to get IUI(artificial insemination).  The more money we raise the better protocol we can afford in hopes of this being our chance to have a baby and complete our family.

I have found out about a program that offers a refund if we don't get pregnant within a certain amount of tries and you save 30-40% versus doing seperate treatments alone.  The price for the program I'm looking at is $19.5K for up to 2 fresh and 2 frozen IVF attemps.

The average cost doing this with out the program is $26.5k.  Neither of the costs include medicines or testing needed prior to treatment. 

I believe that this may be the best way to give us the best chance at getting a take home baby.

As of today I have been accepted into a fertility study at the Missouri Center for Reproductive Medicine.  We are able to start as soon as Rob and I want as in tomorrow if we wish.  It will be IVF with an agressive protocol that will not only pick the best eggs but also the best sperm genetically.  I will also be getting dna fragmantation testing done.

Locally we will be doing blood tests, ultrasounds and a couple other tests that Dr Ahlering can look at.  I will need to travel to MO probably a couple times which means missing work and travel expenses.  Dr. Ahlering estimates the costs just on his end to be about $10,000 plus the testing we will get done here at home.  The procedure and protocol he is wanting to do is usually around $30,000.

This is where we need your help.  We aren't rich, we aren't even high middle class.  We are just normal full time workers.  We can do all of our day to day and month to month expenses but we don't have a grand amount of cash just able to use at once.
