    My DH has a good job. I have known of people doing this that make very little though. It's about what you can save and what things you can cut back on. There's always a credit card too. Works like a loan essentially. And finally, some people are able to use insurance even when infertility is not an issue.

    $11,200 at HRC plus medication. They are on the more affordable end. I paid closer to $15,000 which is closer to average.

    I cycled at a different clinic close to home. $11,200 is HRC's price. Meds range from $1500 to $5000 maybe. The difference for Meds is due to how high the dosage of stims it takes to get your ovaries to respond. They are very expensive.
