cost of ivf in ubth
Just like the ivf success rates, there is no guaranteed cost of ivf in UBTH or any other ivf centre in Nigeria. It depends on the number of tests, the obstetric history, and the age of the woman.The more, the tests carried out, the greater the age; the more the amount. Women with bad obstetric history like recurrent miscarriages will definitely pay more because they will undergo more fertility tests.
On my visit to the UBTH ivf centre on the 24th of September, 2017 to inquire about the cost of the procedure, the Consultant i met on call told me and i quote: ” Doctor, I cannot categorically tell you the cost of ivf here because the amount of money the patient will pay depends on her age, the number of tests she (and her husband) will do, and her previous obstetric history. Older women or women that has either not been pregnant before or had been having recurrent miscarriages pay more since more tests will be carried out. I will personally advise any patient coming to UBTH for IVF to come with between #900,000 – 1.2 million.”
I agree with you that the ubth ivf cost is quite expensive. This is because there is no special government subsidy or interventions for now to reduce the the cost burden of ivf treatment on childless couples. It is not only in the ubth ivf centre that affordability is a problem, it is like that in all fertility clinics across Nigeria. To check this cost burden many centres now do yearly ivf promo/price slashing/bonanza/discounts allowing couples more affordability and accessibility.
