What Is the Average Cost of a Test Tube Baby?

The average cost of a test tube baby, which is now called in-vitro fertilization, is $7,500, as of 2015. The final costs of this procedure depend on the clinic’s costs, medications used, and whether or not donor eggs or sperms were needed.

In-vitro fertilization, or IVF, is less expensive when using the couple’s own eggs and sperm. Donor sperm and eggs not only cost to purchase, but also to freeze them prior to the procedure. Medications used for IVF can range from $3,000 to $5,000, which cause the average cost of IVF to go up.

If a single sperm is injected into the egg, it is a process called intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection. This adds an additional $1,500 on average.
