Not sure where the cheapest place is but the cost at my clinic in the U.S. is $12,000 for the procedure and $2,000 to $4,000 for the medication.

Good question Ann89, I live in Scotland and if you are paying for IVF you can have it done at an NHS hospital where it costs approximately 4000 give or take 700 depending on drugs packages although if you go to a private hospital such as Spires/Bupa it costs approx 5800 for a round of IVF. These are not exact but gives you an idea.

Its $7850 in Australia however I get a huge amount of that back and it ends up being about $2300 or so out of pocket, still have to everything up front so its a pain still. Meds are about $300

We are going to Mexico for IVF and it will be around $6,500 plus our travel expenses. Around here it is generally around $10,000-12,000, so we aren't saving too much. We chose to go out of country because of the long wait times for the doctor I want. Also, because I know a few women from Canada that didn't have success with ivf here (and said they were treated like a number) and had great results in Mexico.

We looked into some great places, but are leaning towards Interafertility because I have talked to a few women that have gone there. There are some in Cancun for around the same price.

I head great things about a centre in the city of Lviv in the Ukraine. It is only about $3,800 including meds. We looked into South Africa as well. I talked to a guy that went (with his wife of course) to the Cape Fertility Clinic and they got their bfp. I think he said it was $5,600 including ICSI and medication.

All these prices are in US funds.

I can't think of a better place to do it than Mexico! Talk about a stress free environment! Definitely would be ok place to chill out and relax after the procedure was done.

My thoughts exactly! Although the clinic we are going to is in Guadalajara so it is not all that relaxing. The older part of the city is supposed to be beautiful. We are looking at renting a house (it is much cheaper than a hotel) in Ajiic, which is absolutely gorgeous. We will have to drive a bit to get to the clinic, but the closest clinic to us here in Ontario is 1.5-2 hours away, so the 45 min-1 hour drive is not so bad.

Wow, that's crazy. I'm in Brisbane, and before the Medicare rebate I am quoted $3500 through QFG. But I'm not sure that international visitors could access IVF at this price. HTH.

I paid $9,000 for IVF and $4000 for Genetic testing.

I heard that in Israel or India it is half price.
