Dear Christabell

The fact that both tubes are totally blocked would strongly mitigate in favour of invitro fertilization which is the more expensive of the two options. However, artificial insemination is unlikely to be successful even after many attempts due to the blocked tubes and therefore, on a cost benefit scale, in vitro fertilization will certainly be more cost effective treatment option in the long run

Hi Christabell
I'm not a doctor but I went through all of that too. I can honestly tell you that IVF is MUCH more expensive that AI. Different processes. Call your gynae and ask him what would he recommend, if you're not at a Fertility Clinic with a good gynae, I'd say you go see one as soon as possible, as your biological clock is also ticking!!

Hope this advice helps!
