Over the months I have spent well into the over $1000 in "aids" to conceive. I know I could have gone above and beyond in trying things but I was really too afraid to mix supplements etc. Every month I would buy pregnancy tests and an OPK. An OPK can run up to $75 and pregnancy tests around $25. I won't be buying OPK's anymore since i get constant false positives because of my PCOS. Pictured below was a mean joke- I got a false positive on mama's day 2014.
Listed below are some things we have used:
Acupuncture/ Massage therapy
Chinese herbal tea
Vitamins, Omegas, cinnamon, turmeric
Pre-seed, soft cups
Also I now have to take synthroid daily. For 5 days of Clomid costs $50. Then I have had to take Femara and progesterone as well. I also miss work a LOT for appointments.
As of August 2014 we have yet to have to spend thousands at a time on treatment or medication.
But I will say we have paid for all therapies and drugs out of pocket since our coverage doesn't start till the end of August.
Peace, Love & Baby Dust!
