Comparing the Costs of Home Insemination and IUI

Fertility treatments can be very expensive. People often acquire a large debt on their path to parenthood. Multiple rounds of fertility treatment can be burdensome and the chances you will require more than one or two treatments to create your family are likely. That’s why it’s important to know your options and the positive and negative scenarios for each treatment.

Below we will discuss the comparison of home insemination (ICI) and intrauterine insemination (IUI).

Cost Estimates for Home Insemination 

Home Insemination is a fertility treatment procedure that you can do on your own, and in the comfort of your home without the need to visit a doctor’s office.  Once you find your favorite donor, we recommend that you purchase two MOT10 straws. The cost for this purchase typically ranges between $700 and $900.

When you choose your donor sperm you can also select a shipping method. We offer a small nitrogen tank which lasts seven days or a large tank which lasts 12 days. These tanks provide the transport for your donor sperm directly to your home. The shipping costs range in the United States from $50 for local pick up to $280 for Saturday delivery. If you order a large nitrogen tank there is an additional $50 charge. Within the shipment, you will also receive all the necessary instructions and procedures, the summary of records, and the home insemination kit.

Cost Estimates for IUI

Intrauterine Insemination is a minor doctor’s office procedure where washed (IUI-ready) sperm is placed in the uterus at the time of ovulation. A catheter helps place the sperm closer to the Fallopian tubes. Most women will experience only mild discomfort during this procedure. Unmedicated IUI is a great option for women under 30 with a healthy BMI. This procedure has a slightly higher success rate than home insemination, but with higher costs. The price range for an unmedicated IUI procedure is typically between $300 and $2,000. A medicated IUI is a great option for women under 35 who may have some fertility issues, as ovulation will be triggered. The success rate with a medicated IUI is better than an unmedicated IUI. There is however an additional cost for medication and monitoring.

How Does IVF Compare? 

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is an assisted reproductive technology where the egg and sperm are manually combined outside of the womb and transfered into the uterus. The chance of becoming pregnant with IVF is much higher because a doctor inserts an already developing embryo into the uterus. However, IVF is rarely the first option in fertility treatment for people to turn to because the costs are significant. An IVF cycle costs around $12,000 and that is without the cost of fertility drugs and testing.
