Fertility treatment is a blanket term for any treatment, procedure, or medication intended to increase the likelihood of successfully conceiving a child
It depends. Fertility treatment is not classified as medically necessary by nearly all Medicaid/Medicare plans and most private insurance companies in the United States, which means they will not cover the cost of treatment. However, coverage varies depending on state and insurance type. You should check directly with your insurance provider for fertility benefits and coverage.
Women (and other people with female reproductive organs) are most fertile during ovulation, the period of time when an egg is released from the ovary. Ovulation occurs 14 days before menstruation begins.
It depends on the kind of fertility treatment you choose. In the United States, the base fee for a full round of IVF, one kind of fertility treatment, can range from $12,000 to $25,000. When you create a Luce account, you can see more detailed estimates for the kind of fertility treatments you are considering.
Luce provides insights on a number of fertility treatments, including IVF, IUI, egg freezing, embryo transfers, egg retrieval, and more. Sign up for Luce to try for yourself and get personalized insights today.
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) that can help infertile couples conceive. IVF consists of a variety of different procedures that ultimately aim to fertilize an egg with sperm outside of the human body. IVF is largely considered the most effective ART available, but your specific chances of success depend on a number of factors. With a Luce subscription, you can gain clarity and context on whether IVF is the right choice for you based on insights gleaned from hundreds of thousands of fertility cycles from women like you.
IVF and IUI are different treatments with different procedures, timelines, levels of invasiveness, and cost. IUI works by fertilizing an egg within a woman’s body, whereas fertilization during an IVF round occurs outside of a woman’s body. During IUI, a sperm sample is washed and concentrated to produce high-quality sperm, which is then placed directly into the uterus.
Egg freezing, also known as oocyte cryopreservation, is a process by which a woman’s eggs are collected, frozen, and stored for later use during IVF treatment. The process of freezing your eggs begins with taking medication to stimulate your ovaries into producing multiple eggs, which is followed by a medical procedure to retrieve the eggs from your ovaries. Once the eggs are retrieved, they are frozen in a tank containing liquid nitrogen at a temperature of -196 degrees Celsius and can be stored indefinitely.It’s important to note that the process of freezing eggs is not without risks and that it can be costly. It’s important to talk to a fertility specialist before making any treatment decision.
The best time to freeze your eggs is in your 20s and early 30s. Studies have shown that women who freeze their eggs before the age of 35 have a higher chance of successfully becoming pregnant via those eggs than women who freeze their eggs after 35. However, it all depends on your specific medical history and fertility plans. When you subscribe to Luce, you’ll get personalized insights on egg freezing so you have clarity and context on your best path forward. It’s important to note that this is general information. It's always recommended to consult with a fertility specialist who can help you determine the best course of action based on your individual situation.
