Tests were expensive and not covered

“Infertility has affected my family because we have unfortunately suffered multiple miscarriages. We had to go through a ton of testing after our third loss and some of the tests were expensive and not covered by my insurance. Once I was able to get pregnant I then had to be on certain medications that were expensive and deemed ‘unnecessary’ by our insurance company and they were not covered.”

The financial stress is heartbreaking

“My fiance and I have been ttc for almost two years.
We are undergoing our first IVF cycle now. Have had two failed IUIs.
The financial stress from trying to start a family is heartbreaking.
Sickens me that only 15 states in the US offer coverage.”

All I really want to do is be a mom

“I have been affected with infertility since 2014 and we are still struggling to fall pregnant…I have not been able to do many treatments due to the cost and trying not to fall behind on bills when all I really want to do is be a mom. Fertility has made me feel as if my body is broken and I do not fit in. Never in my life did I think I would be dealing with something like this.  And to have the insurance company say fertility is not considered a illness and they do not cover it hurts…I’m praying that I could one day become a mom.”
