Our expert says:
I can fully understand your frustration as to the cost of IVF and thus inhibiting many couples from trying to get excess for treatment. The high cost of IVF is mainly due to the medication required that is imported and therefore very expensive. In addition the laboratory set up cost and consumables are also extremely high. The ideal situation is that IVF should be covered by medical aids and should be also offered in a government hospital setting. It would therefore then be subsidized and therefore more affordable to many patients that require it.
