Cost of IVF in Nigeria

Various factors influence the cost of IVF. However, prices range from ₦700,000 to ₦4,000,000 depending on the IVF centre you choose and the treatment plan. Prices vary because there are various factors that influence the cost of IVF and these factors differ for various couples.

For some, there is the influence of the age factor as younger couples have a higher success rate during treatment. While for others, the number of cycles kicks in because in cases where the first cycle does not lead to pregnancy, another cycle would be required.

For example, Nordica Fertility Centre, a leading IVF Centre in Nigeria, charges ₦970,000 Naira for a single cycle, 1,560,000 for a two-cycle plan and 1,860,000 for a three-cycle plan.

Some of the other factors that influence the cost of IVF include;

  • Cost of Drugs and supplements – which could cost up to 200,000 Naira
  • Embryo Freezing (EF)
  • Surrogacy – Surrogacy IVF treatment excluding drugs for treatment, could cost up to 1.5 million Naira.
  • Legal Fees – Cost is usually about 150,000 Naira and is to be paid before the commencement of treatment.

Generally, the cost of IVF in Nigeria differs for various couples based on the above-stated factors. Plus, no two couples are the same. IVF Centres usually tailor treatment procedures to fit the needs of each client.

This makes it impossible to place any general treatment fee as couples have different needs and circumstances.
