My husband and i have been ttc for 4 years I have PCOS and i don't have the money to do shots is there any grants for OR

You don't say if you've had a consultation with a fertility doctor -- that should be your first step. Not all women with PCOS need high tech fertility treatment. If you do, you can consult with the organizations listed in this article, or see if there are any clinical trials right for you at Best, Claire

I would love to add to our loving family but I am a stay at home mother and a full-time student and I cannot afford to receive a reversal and or pay for fertility treatments on our own. I am sad when I think about how much love we have in our hearts to offer another child so if anyone knows of any funding out there for the Pa area please let me know. Our family would be so ever grateful

I know this is odd. But I am single and have been trying for over a year to get pregnant. If I had of known when I was in my 20's and early 30's, I am 39 now, that it was going to be this hard to get pregnant, I would not have waited. I went to school and work. I worked to get where I am and am now ready to have a family with a husband or not. I do not want to wait any longer. I have tried 3 IUI's, miscarried 2 and now need financial help. I am doing this on my own. I think it is time to move to IVF. Any suggestions? I am in Ca. I have stalked the page and can't seem to find anything in my area. I need all the help I can get.

I"m so sorry for your losses and your frustration. You don't say if you have insurance, or if you've seen a fertility doctor to determine why you've miscarried and if IVF is the right next step.

I'm so sorry, and know how hard it is to not be able to get pregnant naturally. If you would like a recommendation for a fertility doctor in your area, please call one of our Patient Care Advocates at 855-955-2229 or email us at

I been trying to get pregnant for 7yrs. I swear this is the worse feeling I have ever felt. I cry everyday without the money to afford the treatment it is so hard I pray to god everyday that I get a blessing to get pregnant I promise in would be a great mother on yesterday I turned 30 yrs old

I recently lost my beautiful baby boy at 2 month old to a recessive genetic disorder, since then it have been a horrible process of trying to have another one because we can never do it naturally again. Basically IVF is our only option of being parents again. This is something i want more than anything but it seems at every turn their is more bad news. I meet with an IVF doctor yesterday and was told the final cost of undergoing IVF and all the treatments. I go to school full time and work part time and my boyfriend doesn't work at all at the moment which doesn't help our situation at all. We could never afford IVF even if we tried to save up it would take years. Please let me know if you know of anything that could help with my situation. Thanks!


I would start with the organizations listed in the article on this page that offer grants and aid for infertility treatment. In addition, look at, which lists clinical trials that provide free or reduced treatment in exchange for participation. Best, Claire

Hello Everyone, I currently reside in Alabama and have insurance that doesn't cover Ivf costs. I am 36 years old and I have had two miscarriages in earlier years. I am married and have been trying to concieve for more than 10 years. In 2009 I found out that I had endometriosis and have had 4 to 5 surgeries since. In 2012 I found out that my left tube was severely damaged and my right tube was reopened to 60% but wouldn't stay open very long. I did try one cycle of fertility meds with timed intercourse right after tube was opened but to no avail no pregnancy. I have researched several online sites to see if I could recieve any help because financially we can't afford Ivf. I have been unsuccessful thus far. Just wondering if anyone knows how I could get assistance to help with costs or have tried the herbal remedies and been successful. This has been a really stressful situation for both me and my husband. I'm asking anyone in my situation or similiar to please share any info in helping us concieve. Thanks in Advance.

Hi! I am a 34 female, white, never pregnant. I have went most of my 20’s with no B.C. and never ended up pregnant. I was heavy set and my periods never really happened. I went thru a partial gastric bypass in 2008, I was 457 pounds… I now bounce between 240 and 260 pounds. My periods did start again, but were in-consistent. My dr. had me tested for P.C.O.S, but tests came back that I do not have it, even tho I do have some symptoms of someone who would have P.C.O.S. They Gyno I was seeing about 3 yrs ago gave me a med that she said if it works, it will give me my monthly every month. If it worked she would then prescribe me 2 meds to help with ovulation. However, by the time all was said and done, found out my insurance wouldn’t pay a dime for those meds and it would cost me $200 a month for those pills. So, I guess what I am asking, is there any Grants I would qualify for to help with the treatments so I could get pregnant? I am located in the Upper Part of Michigan and I fear if I wait much longer, what little chance I might have will be gone and I can’t live with myself if I don’t try.

My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 2 years now. I'm 31 years old and I have had problems over the years and finally found the reason. This is my story!!! As long as I can remember I have been in and out of OB GYN office's trying to figure out why I wasn't having menstrual cycles and why I always had a pain on my left side since 2000. I went to Doctor after Doctor trying to figure this out. Back in 2004 I was gaining so much weight and didn't know why. My doctor found a cyst on my left ovary that was 20 lbs. I had the that cyst taken out and he told me that I am still able to have children. I was still having this pain and still having irregular periods so I went back to the doctor and he ran test on me. The doctor could not find anything so I went to a different doctor they ran test and couldn't find anything, and so on and so on. In 2007 they found another cyst on my left ovary the size of a great fruit. The doctor thought that was the pain i was feeling. So I had that surgery done but was still feeling the pain. Nevertheless, I would like to say that this pain caused me to miss work alot especially when it was time for my menstrual cycle to start. Sometimes I kept on working even though I hurt so bad. About time I met my husband in 2010 it was love at first site. We have been together for 3 years and been married for 2 years and had been trying to conceive. I had been going to this specialist for a year and she did the one thing that the other doctors didn't do when they ran all of them test. All the doctor's ran the same test which is blood work,pap smears, sonogram, and ultrasound but they didn't do this one thing.... they didn't do a hysterescopy. I just had a hysterescopy and a laproscopy done 3 weeks ago. My doctor had to take my Fallopian Tubes because both of them was not functioning. She told me it was because of when I had surgery on my ovary. The good thing about it is that I could still have children but I have to do IVF. That's what I really need help with the funds of having an IVF. I have insurance but my insurance doesn't cover it. That's when my one of my relatives told me about the grants and scholarship online. My doctor told me I am all ready to go on having children. I feel greater than ever now and that pain in my side is gone. We really love children. We have children at our house all the time and just to know that this is the one bump in the road is yielding us from having our own child at this time, really hurts us. But we are lifting our spirits up and doing everything we need to have a child really soon. That's my story!!! So please if anyone has any information please HELP!!!! My email address is Thank you!!!!

we got married in 1999 till now no issue madam is 45 and husband 49years we are thinking of implantatiion but there is no money Dr did microscopic surgery in 2009 and guaranteed us - months but there is nothing still: we have spent to the list francs and even endebted ourselves: we appeal for grants: doctor reports says falopian tubal blockage on both sides

When I was 25 years old I was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension and told that I would never have children. When I was 32 the drs realized I had a weird form and told me I could try to get pregnant but it was highly risky. After 3 miscarriages all of my drs have stated that I cannot carry a child to term and that my body will not accept a pregnancy. I am trying to find help with a surrogate program. We both have good eggs and sperm but I need someone to carry the child. I have looked into surrogate programs but they all start at around $65 K. That is just not something we are able to do. I would do anything for a baby, even risk my own life. If anyone knows of any programs in Jacksonville, Fl that could help us, I would be eternally grateful.

Hi my name is Brandi. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for quite sometime now. We did get pregnant, and that pregnancy ended in a miscarriage at 4 1/2 months. After that miscarriage I started going to a high risk doctor. I have been on clomid twice extending the 6 month intervals. We would really love to have children together. My husband has three kids from a previous marriage and I have none of my own. I have had a total of four miscarriages and the doctors told me that I will probably never be able to carry a child. My sister is beyond willing to carry our baby for us. Is there any programs that would help?

i going for ivf. but Im taken the medication. but i dont have enought eggs. but would if i taken the medication.what to do

Hi Kay, IVF protocols are designed with your ovarian reserve in mind, so if you have diminished ovarian reserve or high FSH, a lower stimulation protocol with low dose fertility drugs might be recommended. Best of luck with your IVF cycle! Kim

I was told that i have to get ivf to have kids but its so much and idk where i can go to get help...plzs help

My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for the past 9 years. We were told initially he did not produce any sperm and our dreams of conceiving our own child were shattered. Several years went by and decided to get a second opinion and were told he does produce sperm but it's a very low count and were told our best option would be ICSI. The cost is too expense for us to afford. We live in Atlanta, GA if anyone knows about grants or financial help with the cost of ICSI please your assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and god bless.

I am getting a heard time with my life I looking for financial help to go in India to get treatment

my husband and i have been trying to get pregnant for 6 years now. we are from Namibia and have to no avail succeeded. we have also looked into finding sponsors but also to no avail.. hoping someone out there will assist us.. please and God bless you

Hi,I live in South Africa. We've been trying to have a baby since we got married in 2007. A day before Xmas 2007 I was diagnosed with Hodgekins Lymphoma 4B. I had to have my ova harvested before I started my cancer treatments. I have 2 embreyos stored at a fertility clinic. After +- 3-4 years of cancer treatments and having 2 stemcell transplants I am proud to say that I've been in remission for 2 years and 5 months. My undying wish (that kept me alive) and promise to my husband is to have a child of our own. After all the treatments and radiation I am left post menopausal. Still I cannot accept the idea of never having a child of my own and will do whatever it takes to have our own little baby. Having delt with cancer treatment costs and the procedure cost to get that far to have embreyos that is stored at the fertility clinic has really cost MORE that a fortune. We now dont have the funds to continue an IVF procedure and if needed a surrogate. Im turning 31 this year and my husband 37. We are still very eager to have our baby(s).To have a child of my own is the reason I have survived this ordeal. Can anyone perhaps give me more information where I can apply for a IVF grant or does anyone know of sponsors willing to assist in such a matter? Your assistance would GREATLY be appreciated.

Hi Joanne, You could look into Cade Foundation and Fertile Hope, but they may require you to travel to the US for your surrogate, etc. Best of luck! Kim

Hi I'm trying to find a way to be able to afford ivf.

Want anything more then to have a baby with my husband please someone give me some information on places that can help or anything

Hi Jennifer, I am so sorry you are going through this. You can check out Cade Foundation for information on grants or for information on free or reduced cost IVF. Best of luck! Kim

I am a 45 year old with blocked tubes. My partner and I want desperately to have a baby together. He does not miss a day asking me if I have any new helpful infor toward "Our Baby". After a mountain of pre-labs and doctor visits, my doctor has agreed to take me on as an IVF candidate. Now comes the very hard part: FUNDING! We were so excited when we got the go ahead and remain this way. Daily I am searching for organizations that offer grants and assistance to apply for. Any information specific to Georgia would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! (

Hi Sydnie, You can check out Cade Foundation for information on grants or for information on free or reduced cost IVF. Best of luck! Kim

Hi my name is Tonya My husband and I have been together a total of 18 years I have been pregnant 4 times all of them have been ectopic pregnancies I had to have both of my tubes remove by the age 27 I am not 40 my doctor told me the only way for me to get pregnant is through IVF something I can not afford as I speak tears are in my eyes because this has always been so hard for me I feel like I am running out of time due to my age I have always prayed for a miracle. I was praying today and stumble across the website in my heart I know this is my answer if anyone can help me or have some information where I can get some help please contact me at greentonya663@ I live in SC. Thank You and God bless you

Hi Tonya, Your doctor is right that IVF will be the way for you to conceive without your fallopian tubes. You can look into Cade Foundation for IVF grants or for free or reduced cost treatment. Best of luck! Kim

My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant.No luck, for over two years. Im ok Have as Dr. said "golden numbers" for my FSH, Horomone and what not. Im 37 hubby 29. We cant afford more than what our insurance covers, we tried foster to adopt. We couldnt complete the class, a friend asked us to adopt her child, which this week she changed her mind, This roller coaster, is too much for my only biological son and my husband,as well as for our family. Please guide us on grants, information or what information you can to help us. Please help us. I dont know what else to do. Please.

In Boston area, I'm 33 & married now almost 4 years while actively trying to conceive we've had no luck. I have large fibroids which are the culprit. I don't know what to do this is the most helpless, heartbreaking feeling I've ever known.Any.suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

My husband and I are desperately seeking to have one of Gods most precious gift, A BABY. I am currently 41 years old and I would love to have kids and at my age my biological clock is ticking. I just haven’t given up on that mustard seed of faith I have. I do not have any children and never been pregnant, I have been trying for 20 plus years. In the past I have had 4 major surgeries to have uterine fibroids tumors removed, endometrioses, blocked tubes as well as a lot of scar tissue from all my surgeries. We have already spent lots of money for treatments but nothing has come our way. It has come to the point to where I had to have a partial hysterectomy. Therefore at this point I have no choice but to go with a surrogate. I really don’t have a problem with that it’s just that we still are not capable of covering the financial cost all at once. I have sisters, aunts and friends who say that they will be my carrier. We all know that DNA will have to be that carrier and I am fine with that as well. It is very heartbreaking to me to know that I may never be a parent because of financial reasons. Is there foundation out there that will help us? Even if there was a program that would allow me to make payments for the procedure I would be grateful.
