Hello ladies
I am brand new on this board and just recieved the date for my first consultation at Conceptia (next month.) I'm nervous as heck but I'm sure htats natural...I just want this sooo bad! THey told me on the phone that the cost for the initial consultation is $175 dollars. Does anyone have any idea what this fee covers? Is it just a conversation or does this include any test? We are far from rich but we will do anything we can to make this happen for us. I just need an idea.

Hi Pink or Blue,
If you scroll down on Conceptia's website (list of questions) it does go into detail what the fee covers and yes there is testing involved. It really is a great clinic with well above average success rates and I am sure you will really like the staff there. Conceptia is a non-profit fertility clinic but unfortunately until the Canadian govt. does it's part and covers IVF, we are stuck with the bill. And yes, I think everyone on this site would agree that a county that spends millions to encourage other people to move here but nothing for IVF is unjust. OK, I'll get off my soapbox now !
I will also pm you with some further info if you like...
Good luck on your journey.
B

The great thing about Conceptia is that when you need further consultations with the doctor (as we have a couple of times after different procedures) you don't have to pay any more. That $175 is really a reasonable price.
