Do you know which is the in vitro fertilization price in Spain?

Before putting yourself in the hands of the best professionals to achieve your dream, one of the most frequently asked questions is, for example, what is the in vitro fertilization price in Spain? In our country, assisted reproduction techniques tend to have a lower price than in other countries, such as the United States. Undoubtedly, the price is linked to the problems and requirements of each couple or each woman.

There are several options for in vitro fertilisation, which vary in price depending on the steps involved in each of them. In the case of in vitro fertilisation with egg donation, this will be more expensive than if IVF treatment is carried out with the partner’s sperm and the woman’s own eggs.

When comparing prices between different clinics, many parameters must be taken into account. Some clinics show prices without basic services included such as initial cycle analysis, ICSI (sperm microinjection) or embryo culture up to day 5. This makes it visually appear much more affordable, but in reality it is not.

Other clinics offer a very affordable basic price, but increase the price considerably for complementary tests.

In addition, depending on the case, it is necessary to include complementary techniques. So, depending on the needs of each patient, they can be included:

  • Male or female genetic studies: karyotype, study of recessive diseases, FISH in spermatozoa, DNA fragmentation, etc.
  • Diagnostic techniques of the male or female: seminogram, endometrial studies (Era test or microbiota), hysteroscopy, hysterosalpingography, etc.).
  • Vitrification of embryos for later use.
  • Emotional support
  • Reflexology and fertility.
  • Nutrition and fertility.
  • Acupuncture and fertility.
  • PGT, a technique for analysing embryos for genetic or chromosomal alterations.

IVF is a more expensive treatment than Intrauterine Insemination, as it consists of stimulating the ovary and obtaining mature eggs and selecting the most optimal spermatozoa in order to fertilise them in the laboratory.

We have already mentioned that, on certain occasions, there are centers that charge extra for ICSI, but what is ICSI and when is it necessary? The difference between conventional IVF and the ICSI technique is that in the former, the egg and sperm are placed in a culture plate so that fertilisation can take place naturally, whereas with ICSI, the sperm is introduced into the egg through microinjection.

This technique is not always necessary, it is recommended in cases of low sperm quality or in a first IVF cycle where there is no previous information about the lack of pregnancy, which could be due to the inability of the sperm to penetrate the egg and fertilise it.

In the case of the ROPA method, for example, the price is a little higher. Why? Well, it requires the donation of a sperm and a more rigorous and double process, since both women participate in the process, one as the biological mother and the other as the surrogate mother. Two cycles have to be synchronised.

The most expensive IVF is the one that requires eggdonation, eggs from a donor, as it includes:

  • Donor egg treatment
  • Selection of the oocyte donor
  • Donor financial compensation
  • Donor medication
  • Testing for recessive genetic diseases (>300 diseases)
  • Medical and analytical tests (medical history, psychological evaluation, infectious diseases, hormone profile, karyotype and cytology)
  • Follicular puncture in the operating room
  • Patient treatment
  • Medical consultations
  • Evaluation of blood tests, ultrasound scans and medical reports.
  • Semen analysis (when necessary)
  • Transvaginal ultrasound and cytology
  • Donor selection and allocation (in accordance with Spanish law)
  • Genetic matching with the donor (when necessary)
  • Endometrial preparation of the patient
  • First embryo transfer
  • Procedures performed in the IVF and andrology laboratories
  • Egg retrieval and evaluation
  • Sperm preparation for ICSI or conventional IVF
  • ICSI or conventional IVF
  • Culture to blastocyst stage
  • Eco-guided embryo transfer
  • Embryo selection
  • Pregnancy test
  • First pregnancy ultrasound
  • Other services included
  • Guaranteed reserve donor (in case there are not enough oocytes from the selected donor, another donor with similar characteristics will be assigned).
  • Videoconference consultations in the patient’s language with Reproclinic team: doctor, patient’s assistant.

  • Integrative support: free call with a fertility expert.

In addition, Reproclinic’s egg donation programme guarantees two embryos at blastocyst stage (two attempts). One of them will be transferred in the fresh cycle and the other, in case of non-pregnancy, will be transferred in a subsequent cycle. So we increase the pregnancy rate considerably.
