Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) Cost

Ovulation Predictor Kits

Home urinary ovulation predictor kits (OPK’s) are used to time the insemination. Kits can be purchased at any pharmacy or grocery store without a prescription. We have good results with the “Clear Blue Easy Digital Ovulation Test”, which costs approximately $5.00 per day. We don’t recommend the “Clear Blue Easy Advanced Digital Ovulation Test”.

Five to 10% of women have questionable results with OPK's and estradiol and progesterone blood tests may be needed to document ovulation. In these cases, we often do daily blood draws to detect the LH surge and monitor follicle development using ultrasound. Sometimes hCG is given to stimulate ovulation.

IUI Cycle Cost

IUI can be performed with or without ovulation induction drugs. Clomid (clomiphene citrate) or Femara (letrozole) tablets and/or follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) injections are commonly used. Costs are based on cash prices with no insurance coverage and are subject to change.
