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.
