In Vitro Fertilization About to Go On Sale

In Vitro Fertilization About to Go On SaleWhile celebrities have been making a habit of going to Africa to adopt children, couples looking to conceive through in vitro fertilization (IVF) may soon be journeying there as well.

That’s because Sudan and Egypt will be the first countries where the Low Cost IVF Foundation (LCIF) and the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) establish their clinics to provide IVF at rock-bottom prices. Cheap IVF is another sign of how powerful technology is spreading and gaining momentum by being adopted by the masses.

ESHRE will aim for a $360.00 price tag while LCIF could go lower than $300.00. These two foundations plan to cut out all the bells and whistles so that third world countries can benefit from IVF. If this procedure starts costing just hundreds in Africa, you can bet that prices in the rest of the world will plummet.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
