Treatments and costs

We offer a range of treatments that can help you with all your fertility needs – from the initial assessment and advice about how to improve your chances, to gynaecology services, IVF, egg, sperm and embryo freezing, genetic screening, donor services and more.

We can also tailor your treatment with options for minor intervention to full IVF treatments.

Below are the links to our treatment and medication costs which include costs for our consultations, the available add-ons and their associated costs. Our fertility treatments are personalised to each client’s needs so it is best to discuss the total cost estimate in your initial consultation with one of our fertility doctors. 

Costs

Our medication costs are priced separately from treatment costs. This is because everyone has a unique requirement for their medication based on many factors and ensures you don’t pay for more than you need.

Providing an estimate for fertility treatment is difficult as there are so many considerations unique to your personal situation. As a guide, one cycle of IVF can cost between $11,500 and $17,000 which includes average medication costs and excludes genetic screening costs. 

Donor treatment costs include sperm, egg and embryo donation and surrogacy and are more complex so will need a discussion with your doctor to get an indication of costs.

We offer a range of additional techniques that are optional extras or add-ons to the core treatment cycle. Our team continuously assesses the scientific merits, safety, value and clinical evidence of the latest medical advances, to ensure clients have access to a comprehensive range of options. It is our policy to recommend add-ons only where a considered benefit to improved chances of pregnancy exist, based on each client’s reproductive history and diagnosis.

Please note our costs should be viewed in conjunction with our Journey Planner and ReproFact information sheets provided to you with your individual treatment plan.

Payment can be made by cash, direct debit, credit card or online banking. We also offer flexible payment options with Gem Visa.

Public funding

Sperm-related issues account for approximately 25% of infertile couples. At Repromed we offer a range of different investigations and procedures.

An AMH (Anti-Mullerian Hormone) test can identify those who may lose their fertility earlier than average and may help in deciding whether to start a family sooner or later. AMH is a hormone secreted by cells in developing egg follicles. Research performed at Repromed has proven that AMH testing gives the best indication of your egg supply.

Ovulation Induction (OI) is for when you may or may not ovulate regularly and who have normal fallopian tubes and there is regular sperm quality. The treatment involves stimulating the ovaries with ovarian stimulation medication and the follicular growth monitored with blood tests and possibly ultrasound scans for timed intercourse. This is a common first step along the fertility treatment journey.

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is for clients where the sperm and the fallopian tubes are normal but they are still failing to conceive naturally. The treatment may or may not involve the stimulation of the ovaries with ovarian stimulation medication and the follicular growth monitored with blood tests and an ultrasound scan. This allows the ovulation to be either predicted or induced. This treatment is often a second line of fertility treatment before options such as IVF are considered.

In Vitro fertilisation (IVF) refers to fertilisation outside of the body. Eggs are collected and mixed with sperm in the laboratory. At Repromed we offer two types of IVF Treatment.

Sperm Freezing

Reasons for sperm storage can range due to a number of factors. Sperm can be frozen prior to treatment and used as ‘back-up’ if decreased sperm parameters are noted or anxiety surrounding performance on the day of treatment is predicted.

Sperm freeze is also useful for couples where the male partner is likely to be away from home at time of female ovulation, having frozen sperm in storage enables the treatment to go ahead at any time.

Egg Freezing

There are two primary reasons why people may wish to consider freezing their eggs.

Firstly, those who are planning to undergo medical treatment that may harm or reduce their egg reserves (e.g. chemotherapy), are offered egg freezing as a means of Medical Fertility Preservation.

Secondly, some are choosing to freeze their eggs in an effort to safeguard themselves for the future, against the age-related decline in fertility that naturally occurs. These cases we refer to as Social or Elective Fertility Preservation.

Embryo freezing and FET

Our scientists will freeze any good quality embryos following your fresh embryo transfer. These embryos will remain in storage until you would like them thawed and transferred, a procedure known as a Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET).

A range of genetic testing options can be carried out at different stages of your fertility journey, starting even before you become pregnant.

For some people, their only hope of having a child is with the aid of sperm, egg or embryo donors. Surrogacy refers to situations where someone is unable to carry a pregnancy and a surrogate is needed to carry the pregnancy instead. Surrogacy can also provide same sex couples with an option for a baby.

In Aotearoa donor and surrogacy services are tightly regulated to safeguard the welfare of the child, the donors, and the couples or single clients who want a family.

We offer standard and innovative treatment options, based on sound scientific evidence of efficacy and safety, taking into consideration the specific diagnosis, reproductive history and personalised requirements of each client.

An add-on is defined as a treatment or technique that is offered as an optional extra to routine fertility treatments. Our specialists prudently recommend particular add-ons with a transparent explanation of the potential benefits, and most importantly, the quality and certainty of scientific evidence that exists in the literature.

Each Repromed add-on has defined suitability criteria for clients where its recommendations will have the most benefit. All clients are informed of the full range of optional add-ons that are available at Repromed and provided with ReproFacts information sheets and costs.
