Expenses Tally

Each woman has different needs, each fertility center has different procedures and costs. Some states in the US mandate infertility coverage for health insurance, most don’t. I luckily live in a state that mandates fertility coverage. This is by no means a way to “brag/complain” about how much or little we’ve paid, how easy/hard its been compared to others. I am doing this mostly for personal financial tracking reasons (tax write off hopefully!) but I am putting it out there to try to be helpful to someone.

This is my running total for infertility costs starting at when we started seeing a reproductive endocrinologist.
