IVF Costs at Ferticentro

When it comes to the IVF costs with Ferticentro there are standard prices available. However, because each treatment can be unique, depending on the types of treatment you require, the costs can vary in the end. All of the costs will be discussed with you beforehand so you know how much you will have to pay. If you are an international patient based outside of Portugal, the treatment costs will be discussed before you need to go to the country, this way you will have the information upfront. The initial medical consultation will cost 110 Euros.

The cost for IUI (intrauterine insemination) with your partner’s semen costs 900 Euros and the same, but with donor sperm, that is AID (artificial insemination with donor) costs 1,350 Euros. The cost for IVF treatment with own oocytes is 4,700 Euros, although if you require treatment using egg donation this can range from 6,900 to 11,300 Euros. Treatment using embryo donation starts at 2,190 Euros, and donor sperm costs €450 for a non-anonymous donor.

Ferticentro provides intrauterine PRP therapy for situations requiring specific medical intervention. This procedure, which costs 595 Euros, can enhance the uterine lining’s receptivity prior to embryo transfer. It is typically administered 48 hours before the scheduled embryo transfer, involving the infusion of approximately 3-5 millilitres into the uterus using an IUI catheter.

Recent research findings have shown that the application of intrauterine PRP infusion to women with refractory, thin endometrium undergoing IVF results in significant enhancements across multiple pregnancy parameters, including ongoing pregnancy, chemical pregnancy, clinical pregnancy, and implantation rates. Notably, in cases where chemical pregnancy occurred, there was a marked improvement in endometrial thickness and pattern on days 2 and 3 compared to cases where chemical pregnancy did not occur.

Ferticentro - FAQ
What is the average cost of IVF with your own eggs at Ferticentro?

The average cost of IVF with your own eggs at Ferticentro is 4,950 Euros, although this is the base price and there could be an additional 1,500 Euros added on top, but this depends on factors such as analysis, exams already performed, and whether there are embryos to freeze and/or transfer, as well as other factors that will be discussed with you by your doctor.

The base price of 4,950 Euros includes:

  • All of your nursing and medical consultations other than your first one. The follow-ups will include an ultrasound as well as a medical check, up until you are eight weeks pregnant.
  • Treatment of sperm sample that is to be used in your treatment, so that the strongest and most motile sperm will be selected for use.
  • Oocyte retrieval. This will include the hormone stimulation in order for you to produce the eggs that will be retrieved in order to be fertilised.
  • Embryo Culture. Your embryos will be allowed to develop inside the laboratory for three to four days, although if it is needed in your case they will be allowed to develop for five to six days instead. This will also include embryoscope monitoring to allow the embryologists to monitor the embryos during development and allow them to choose the best ones for transfer.
  • Embryo transfer. Once the embryos are ready they will be transferred by using a catheter to release them in your uterine cavity.
  • Embryo Glue and Assisted Hatching. Embryo glue is a viscous substance that is used to aid implantation, and assisted hatching is where the zona pellucida of the embryo is lightly pierced, which can also aid in successful implantation..
  • Pregnancy test. If you choose to have your pregnancy test with the clinic this will be included.

This is everything that is included in the base price of the treatment.

You will be required to pay for certain things at an extra price when it comes to your treatment, and these include:

  • First consultation which will cost 110 Euros,
  • Analysis and exams.
  • Medication for your treatment, although this can be purchased in your home country, so the price may vary.
  • Sperm cryopreservation, if you wish to have it, which will cost 500 Euros and can be for a legal period of five years.
  • Embryo cryopreservation which will cost 500 Euros and can be for a legal period of three years, although you may apply for it to be longer.
  • FET, which is frozen embryo transfer, which will cost 1,350 Euros.

When you have your initial consultation with the doctor you can discuss all of this at length with them.

What are the costs of popular IVF add-ons at Ferticentro?

The average cost of popular IVF add-ons with Ferticentro will depend on which add-ons you wish to have and how many, as their prices vary and some may not be suitable for your treatment. Some of these add-ons are:

  • Genetic matching CGT Plus for 700 Euros. This is a genetic test that can allow the clinic to test for 570 different genetic diseases and can allow prospective parents to see if they carry any that can pass on to their future children.
  • CGT Exome for 900 Euros. This is a more expansive test that can look into more than 2,200 diseases.

With regards to both of the tests above the cost is for each individual that is to be tested, so the final cost will need to be multiplied by the number of people it is performed on. If you have the test performed on just you and a partner, or you and a donor you will be paying twice, so the cost will be 1,400 Euros for CGT Plus and 1,800 Euros for CGT Exome.

Other add-ons are:

  • Non-anonymous sperm donation from the clinic’s sperm bank, which will cost 500 Euros.
  • PGT-A Genetic testing, which will cost 790 Euros for the biopsy, as well as 360 Euros per embryo that is to be tested, so if you need to have five embryos tested you will multiply the cost by five, equalling 1,800 Euros, plus 790, totalling 2,590 Euros.

These are the most popular add-ons with the clinic, although there may be more available, if you wish to speak with the clinic about which add-ons you may like, or if there are any that would be beneficial to you, then you can discuss this with your doctor.

  • Pregnancy test. You can undergo a pregnancy test with the clinic and this will be included in the cost.

Whilst this is everything included in the cost you will find there are others that you will need to pay extra for.

What kind of egg donor ethnicities are available at Ferticentro?

The egg donor ethnicities available at Ferticentro can vary depending on what is available at the moment in time that you go for your treatment, however, they have mostly Caucasian egg donors available. As well as Caucasian they also have donors who are Latin and come from South America and Spain, but they also have African and Asian, although Asian may need to be confirmed beforehand due to this ethnicity not being too popular or needed as often as the others. The clinic also has mixed-race donors available, with this usually being Caucasian mixed with African and Caucasian mixed with Latin.

When it comes to egg donors they are carefully selected and they must undergo rigorous testing in order to ensure they are capable of becoming an egg donor, so the requirements can be quite strict.

These requirements include:

  • Egg donors are no older than 35 and are most often between the ages of 18 and 30. This is due to younger donors having more viable eggs, meaning their eggs are healthy and fertile.
  • Donors must be healthy in order to donate, and as part of the testing to ensure this is the case they must undergo STI testing, in order to check for any sexually transmitted infections that can have a negative impact on their fertility and the health of their eggs.
  • Genetic testing. Another test they undergo is genetic testing, which is performed in order to ensure that they are free of any genetic diseases that can be passed down through their eggs and negatively impact the life of the child born as a result.
  • Psychological testing. Donating is a process that requires a healthy mind as understanding what donating truly encompasses can be quite significant. This testing ensures they are healthy of the mind and that they fully comprehend what donating means.

Donors will have their physical characteristics noted down and their blood type tested to ensure as close a match to you as possible. With all of these requirements and tests you can be sure that the egg donor in your treatment will be healthy and fertile, and that the eggs you receive will offer you a good chance of success.

What is the cost of PGT-A and how should it be calculated with IVF programs at Ferticentro?

The average cost of PGT-A testing with Ferticentro is 790 Euros for the biopsy and 360 Euros per biopsy that you wish to have tested. If you wish to have more than one embryo tested then you will need to multiply the cost of 360 Euros per the amount of embryos being tested to get the final price, so if you have three embryos tested then you will pay 1,080 Euros for the three embryos as well as the 790 Euros, taking the total cost to 1,870 Euros.

As you can tell by the cost of the test PGT-A is a test that is performed on the embryos, and this is typically done on day five of the embryo’s development. The test is performed by removing a few cells from the embryo and using these for the test. The reason the test is performed is to ensure that there are no genetic defects or chromosomal abnormalities present in the embryos that can cause problems with the development of either the embryo, or the baby once they are born.

It may be recommended that you undergo this testing if:

  • You or your partner have any genetic diseases that can be passed down through your genes, as you may wish to avoid passing these down.
  • You or your partner have chromosomal abnormalities present.
  • You have suffered multiple miscarriages or implantation failures as a result of genetic abnormalities present in the embryos that have caused this.
  • You are above a certain age, as women above 35 have a greater chance of having a child with chromosomal abnormalities than women under the age of 35.

Whether your case applies to any of the above-recommended testing groups or not, you can talk to your doctor about undergoing this test, and they will decide if it is right for you.

What is the cost of donor sperm from the bank at Ferticentro?

The average cost of donor sperm with Ferticentro is 550 Euros, although this is for sperm from their own sperm bank. If you wish for a sperm donor from an external sperm bank then the price may be different as there will be other factors to include, such as availability and delivery, of which needs to be done in a way so as to not damage the sperm in any way. The clinic must also agree to the donor sperm from an external clinic, according to their own rules.

Sperm donors must meet strict requirements in order to donate sperm, as they must be healthy so that the sperm will also be healthy and fertile.

These requirements may include:

  • Age is an important factor when it comes to the reproductive health of both men and women, although with men they can remain fertile for a lot longer. Sperm donors are usually between the ages of 18 and 50, although the maximum age can be lower depending on the clinic.
  • STI free. Donors undergo testing for sexually transmitted infections, as these can negatively impact both the health of the donor and the health of their sperm, leading to donations that don’t meet the quality requirements.
  • Genetic testing. Genetic testing is often performed on donors to ensure that there are no genetic diseases in their DNA that can pass down to children through their donation. This ensures that the children won’t be born with any diseases that can impact their quality of life.
  • Psychological testing. Sometimes donors must also undergo psychological testing, in order to ensure that they fully understand what being a donor is all about, as well as having the mental capacity to consent to donation.
  • Healthy lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle is often a must for donors, as they must lead a clean and healthy life that is free of drugs and other habits that can impact their health and the health of their donation.

Regardless of how strict the requirements are when it comes to sperm donation, you can be sure that the sperm that you receive in your treatment will only be of the highest quality, and offer you the highest chances of success.

What are the average costs of intrauterine insemination and donor sperm insemination at Ferticentro?

The average cost of IUI and AID with Ferticentro is 900 Euros per cycle. IUI is Intrauterine Insemination and is a procedure whereby sperm is placed into a small, thin catheter, which is then pushed through the cervix and into the uterine cavity where the sperm is released. The procedure is relatively painless and most patients will only feel a slight pinch and some cramping. The reason this procedure is used is so that more sperm makes it to the uterus, meaning there will be a greater chance of a sperm cell fertilising an egg. AID is Artificial Insemination with Donor, and it is the same procedure but with donor sperm instead. If you need AID then you will also need to pay for the donor sperm, which will cost 550 Euros from the clinic’s sperm bank, although you can use an external sperm bank but the cost may vary.

As IUI and AID are performed in the same way, the base price of 900 Euros covers exactly the same for both procedures, as the only difference is the sperm being used which comes with an additional fee for AID.

The 900 Euros base price includes:

  • Any medical and nursing follow-ups that will be needed, including an ultrasound, and this will be available for up to 8 weeks of your pregnancy.
  • Treatment of the sperm sample in order to clean it and pick out the strongest and most motile sperm.
  • The artificial insemination procedure, where the sperm will be released in your uterine cavity.
  • The pregnancy test, if you have it performed at the clinic. If you have it performed elsewhere there may be a fee involved.

The base price does not include:

  • Your first meeting with the doctor, which will cost 110 Euros.
  • The medication, exams and analysis needed during your treatment, all of which can be bought and carried out in your home country. If you decide to buy the medication, or have the exams and analysis performed in your home country, the cost may vary depending on where.
  • Donor sperm from the Ferticentro sperm bank, which is non-anonymous and will cost 550 Euros.
