I am not exactly sure what the $9k covers; that was Dr. Check had mentioned to me during my last phone follow up. I am assuming it is using a clinic donor. I haven't had an in-depth consult yet with Cooper re: DE. I love Cooper for OE IVF; my only concern about DE with them is that the SART stats could be better (IMO).So it is $9,000 at Cooper for everything? Including the payment to the donor?
What does that cover?
Is there a reason you wouldn't do Cooper? That is almost affordable!
I wonder why they are so much less expensive?
I am hoping I will have success with my frozen egg cycle but maybe I could look into this.
for the info. I will definitely have a consult with IVF-NJ before making a decision.is considered one of the top-rated in the country in terms of DE success rates, so I would definitely meet with them before making a decision. You might also want to consider Shady Grove in MD (for their guarantee plan) and RBA in Atlanta (for their vitrified egg program).
I hate the front office of Cooper, but I can't say enough about the DE program. I paid 6k a few years ago, but I also had insurance which did cover my transfer, meds and testing. I did a shared cycle that yielded 11 eggs with a proven donor....9 fert; 6 frozen at 2pn (they are great at frozen embies) and 2 transferred. Unfortunately, it was a chemical. This past year, I took the 6 remaining frozen to my first RE (South Jersey Fert in Marlton) since I was so tired of the chaos...even have the picture of their transfer! DS is 7 weeks and if you wouldn't know it, he looks like me....thus, they matched me pretty well!I am not exactly sure what the $9k covers; that was Dr. Check had mentioned to me during my last phone follow up.

Here's more info on the program.
I went to DE after 2 miscarriages and 2 failed IVF's with my own eggs. I had a child with my own eggs in 2007 but could not have another. I also lost one tube after the birth of my first daughter. I decided to use IVFNJ because of their stats and it is 80%. I did not have any to freeze but transferred to 5 day blasts and was originally pregnant with twins on my first try but lost one at 9 weeks. I really have never thought my DE daughter was not mine. I felt so bonded to her and she is so attached to me now. It really is amazing how we never think about it! She is just so beautiful and special that is never crosses my mind-best thing I ever did because I may not have a second child now. Overall, I had insurance to cover the procedure so it cost me about $13,000 out of pocket for the donor and her medication. I literally had a donor 1 week after first going to IVFNJ and she was the most perfect match. I went to see them in March and was pregnant in June!I posted the below response to the other anon responder; would love your input as well if you don't mind.
What were the factors that led you to DE? And how did you end up settling on IVF-NJ? How long was the wait for your donor? What were the end to end costs? Did you end up with any embies/blasts to freeze?
Here's a very personal question and I'm asking it because I am grappling with it. During the pregnancy and since the birth, have you had moments where you were consumed with thoughts of "OMG, she's beautiful/perfect/an angel (whatever superlative) but she's not of my OE" or along those lines? I'm so fearful that my mind will get cluttered with these unnecessary thoughts.
Thanks again for your original input! Happy New Year!!
