Hi ladies, I just got a message from my fertility clinic about a clinical trial that is ongoing. There seems to several test sites so if you are interested check out: theivystudy.com

in the email it says that there is a one time fee for the meds but I don't know all the details.

The meds is free of charge and IVF is offered at a lower cost. I was hoping the IVF would have been free :(

This study is testing a new follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) treatment called AFOLIA comparing it to the US approved Gonal-f. FSH helps healthy ovaries to make eggs in women.

Each patient in this study would be participating for approximately 14 weeks per cycle, similar to the amount of time spent in a regular IVF cycle. This study requires frequent visits to the doctor’s office involving procedures such as having blood drawn, pelvic ultrasounds, self-injected medications and egg retrieval to remove eggs for embryo transfer. Each patient will receive the same medical care and oversight throughout the study. Each patient may be eligible to complete up to 3 IVF cycles.

The study drug is free of charge for all participants and the IVF procedure is offered at a lower cost than other options.

I see. I wonder how much of a discount. That doesn't sound as good of a deal than the email implied.

I sent one of the clinics an email. Hopefully they will reply back without me calling them.

Yeah, hopefully it is a significant discount.

$4500 for the IVF, which isn't bad.

This would be a good deal. The drug seems to be the same as Gonal-F. The only thing is the clinical trial page it says you have to be 35-42 years old.
