Understanding the fertility treatment costs

When you’re planning IVF and fertility treatment, one of the key things you’re going to want to know is how much your fertility treatment costs.

But it’s not always easy to work out what you’re paying for, how this might compare and what is or isn’t included, as fertility clinics charge differently. 

At Manchester Fertility, we focus on tailored fertility treatment and clear, upfront transparent pricing for treatments. So you know the total cost for your fertility treatment, with no hidden extras, right from the start. 

Here’s a quick guide to how your fertility treatment is typically planned and priced at Manchester Fertility:

What your basic fertility treatment cost includes

The cost of a cycle of treatment on our price list, such as IUI or IVF, includes all the standard processes and procedures for that particular treatment.

What’s not included in basic fertility treatment costs?

Here’s what isn’t included in a basic treatment price:

Fertility Assessment

These fees cover the testing we perform to assess your fertility, so your doctor can devise the right treatment plan for you. Tests include an AMH blood test, pelvic ultrasound scan and a semen analysis.

Your doctor will then meet with you to discuss your results, and the best way forward for you to have a baby. You’ll receive a fully-costed, personalised treatment plan after your consultation.

Diagnostic testing

If any additional diagnostic tests are required, these are also charged separately. Additional tests would be things like a HyCoSy procedure to check tubal patency or a SpermComet test to assess sperm DNA damage. 


Fertility medications such as those needed for IVF are not included in the basic fertility treatment cost because every patient has their own unique prescription and protocol. 

We have our own recommended and competitively-priced pharmacy partner, who can arrange safe and secure delivery of your medications straight to your door. 

Additional techniques

Based on your diagnosis or fertility history, you may be advised to consider specialist testing such as embryo genetic testing. Or you may wish to include optional time-lapse embryo development in your IVF cycle. We’ll explain the evidence, benefits to you and associated costs, so you can make an informed decision. 


Individualised cycles, individual pricing

At Manchester Fertility every treatment cycle we perform is personalised and unique to every patient.  

Whilst some patients may have a very straightforward cycle of treatment with minimum testing required, others may need specialist additional testing or specific procedures to maximise their chance of a baby. 

You can be assured that every fertility treatment cost in your treatment plan will be clearly explained to you.

What are my funding options for fertility treatment?

We also offer our own fixed-price treatment packages and third-party pre-paid plans.

Our packages are designed to alleviate many of the worries people have about self-funding fertility treatment, such as cost control, paying for further cycles if you need them or unexpected fees. 

We offer packages for the most popular fertility treatments, including IVF, ICSI, IUI, donor insemination and IVF with donor eggs. You can explore packages and plans here.
