Why do costs for IVF vary in Abuja?

The simple answer—everyone is different and therefore needs a custom IVF treatment to be successful. Since no IVF experience is created equal, it’s very common for varying costs to come into play.

Basic IVF is simply the baseline for IVF procedures. Depending on your fertility or genetic issue, your IVF journey may be different. For example, couples who carry genetic disorders may turn to IVF to ensure an embryo without the disorder is brought to term. In this case, they will opt to use a screening process, preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), which tests embryos for the presence of that gene and incurs additional costs.

Costs of IVF vary by patient, clinic, what geographic area you live in and your specific needs. Using a surrogate or sperm donor, freezing eggs and genetic screens are just a few of the reasons your cost for IVF may go up or down. It is impossible to determine exactly how each IVF cycle will go. At each turn you may find treatment options that incur an extra cost. It’s important to understand your goals, boundaries and budget before beginning IVF.

Depending on the fertility issue affecting your ability to get pregnant, your physician may recommend using donor eggs for a higher probability of success with IVF. Egg donation costs are one of the highest costs associated with IVF.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) in Abuja 

ICSI is an IVF procedure that calls for injecting a single sperm directly into an egg. The process aims to tackle one of the number one reasons for infertility—defective sperm. Though some forms of male infertility have genetic foundations, many men’s infertility results from environmental factors. ICSI was created to mitigate some of those issues and remedy problems with severe male infertility.

ICSI is most commonly recommended for couples who can not get pregnant with basic IVF treatments or when there aren’t enough normal sperm present in the test sample from the male to predict IVF success.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) in Abuja range from USD 2500 – USD 3000

Blastocyst culture

When embryos are cultured in the lab for an extended period of time, the technique is referred to as blastocyst culture. Instead of freezing or implanting 3-day-old embryos, they are cultivated outside the womb for 5 days. The extra two days allows 30-40% of the embryos to develop into blastocysts.

Blastocysts are simply more mature embryos. However, within those two days significant developments occur, allowing embryologists to get a better picture at the strength and advancement of the embryos they decide are best suited for transfer, therefore offering a higher chance of the embryo being successful as they are able to choose them embryos that are most likely to implant.

Patients exploring the blastocyst option must have an adequate number of embryos, generally more than 4, that have reached a specific development stage by day 3. At this point, your provider may offer this option. Many clinics do not charge for blastocyst culture, while others charge a nominal upcharge.

Blastocyst culture cost in Abuja USD 700


Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is a genetic test of singular cells within an embryo, which detects genetic diseases and chromosomal disorders before an embryo is implanted. Couples who are known carriers or in another way at-risk for these types of issues can use PGD to help make the choice of which embryos to transfer. PGD leads to a higher chance of transferring healthy embryos and can increase your success rate with IVF. PGD is also a tool for gender identification, which some couples seeking gender balance in their families may use to choose embryos.

PGD cost in Abuja range $2,00-$2,50.

Embryo freezing in Abuja

In one IVF cycle there are often more embryos created than implanted. For the up to 60% of patients who end up with extra embryos, embryo freezing is an option to preserve embryos for future IVF cycles and/or mitigate moral or ethical hesitations that come with disposing of embryos.
