In Poland, IVF won eggs starts at €2,500 while egg donation costs start at circa €4,500 per donor egg cycle. The most expensive country included on the list is Spain where IVF own eggs treatment averages at just over €4,500 and egg donation cycle starts at €6,500.  International patients in the USA pay around €25,000 for the egg donation treatment and around €18,000 per IVF with own eggs. While there may be additional costs, the average price per cycle tends to be lower.

Some clinics offer IVF refund programs which mean “money-back guarantee” in case of a failure.
