The $500 intake administration fee is non-refundable. The intake administration fee is not included in the full cost per cycle of $6,500 (which includes cycle medication) should you elect to move forward with treatment.
A frozen embryo transfer (FET) is a procedure where embryos that were cryogenically stored (frozen) from a previous IVF or donor egg cycle are thawed and transferred to a uterus as part of an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle.
After the lab development of the embryos for 1-6 days, cryopreservation times range from days up to several years, hormonal treatments to prepare the uterine lining to receive the embryo, and thawing of the preserved embryo is followed by transfer to the uterus.
Anti-Müllerian Hormone, or 'AMH' as it is often called, is a hormone which is given off by developing follicles, which are egg sacs containing immature eggs. By measuring this with a blood test, it gives an idea of the state of ovarian reserve and how many eggs are left in the ovaries.
The Harmony® prenatal test is a type of NIPT, which can also be called NIPS (non-invasive prenatal screening). It looks at fragments of your baby's DNA in your blood to provide accurate information about the likelihood for the most common chromosomal conditions as early as 10 weeks. It can also identify the sex of your baby.
Harmony screens for the following conditions:
An endometrium is receptive when it is ready for embryo implantation. This occurs around days 19-21 in each menstrual cycle of a fertile woman. This period of receptivity is what we call the window of implantation.
The ERA test requires an endometrial biopsy that should be carried out on day LH+7 (natural cycle) or day P+5 (HRT cycle). This biopsy is quickly and easily taken by a gynaecologist in their consultation room and sent to Igenomix for testing. The ERA test analyzes the expression levels of 248 genes linked to the status of endometrial receptivity, using RNA sequencing taken from the endometrial tissue.
Following the analysis, a specific computational predictor classifies the samples according to their expression profile as Receptive or Non-Receptive.
If you are wanting to preserve your eggs for future fertility use, the vitrification process is the safest for your eggs. The process is set up just like an IVF cycle; the ovaries are stimulated to mature multiple follicles and then retrieved. Once the eggs are retrieved they are vitrified!
It is important to consider age when wanting to preserve your eggs as the quality and quantity does change. Typically, women under the age of 35 are ideal for this procedure.
There is a yearly storage fee of $200
The $2500.00 is to be paid by the intended parent once a referral for satellite monitoring is received and a consent of understanding is to be signed.
What your 2500.00 includes:
Converted and organized ultrasounds per your IVF treatment center's orders.
Blood work can be booked in the clinic or requisitions filled out and provided upon patient request.
If weekends are required the on-call nurse will be able to fax reports to the referring facility. The clinic is not open for business on holidays, some requested tests may need to be moved to accommodate.
Effortless IVF does NOT monitor patients through pregnancies. Once the 7 weeks ultrasound is completed you will be discharged from our clinic
If you are wanting treatment at any of our centres in Canada and are from another country you may be asked by the facility providing the investigation to pay privately. If you hold private insurance the facility can provide the invoice and you can work with your insurance company to be reimbursed. If the service is being provided by Effortless IVF we require full payment upfront. Effortless IVF does not accept partial payments.
A basic semen profile evaluates a range of characteristics of the sample to determine the quality of the semen, if male-factor infertility is present or not, and how that may affect the fertility treatment moving forward. Such values assessed include sperm concentration, motility, morphology, and sperm clumping as well as volume, appearance, viscosity, and pH. The examination of the semen sample also identifies other cellular elements and debris that may be present.
The purpose of a sperm freeze is to cryopreserve a semen sample in vials for future fertility treatment use. There is no limit to the number of vials that can be frozen from a semen sample and this number is ultimately determined based on volume and sperm concentration. A semen profile is mandatory with an elective sperm freeze to determine the sample quality prior to cryopreservation. The first year of storage is included in this cost.
A retrograde semen profile prepares and evaluates a semen sample produced by retrograde ejaculation – a condition caused by certain medications or nerve damage. The values assessed are the same as a semen profile but includes the extra process of collecting the sperm from the urine.
Antisperm antibody testing is another test that can be performed when determining male-factor infertility and would be requested by the reproductive endocrinologist. Antisperm antibodies are implicated in immunological infertility and this test determines the presence of such antibodies using immunobeads.
This fee covers one year of storage for cryopreserved semen, eggs, and embryos.
Fees are due at time of service. Some fees may be subject to refund as per Effortless IVF policy if cycles are cancelled for medically necessary reasons. If there is a discrepancy between fees listed on this website and our point of sale system at Effortless IVF the internal system will be deemed correct. Refunds for payments made directly at Effortless IVF will be processed either by refund on our Point of Sale System or by cheque depending on how payment was collected.
