    Need your help! I am trying to get pregnant - my insurance is tapped out and we are having to pay out of pocket. I conceived once using the Follistim and want to try again. We have done I.U.I's and I have been taking Femera (same as clomid) - but haven't had much luck. Does anyone know where I can take out a medical loan to help with the financing?

    Please share your advice - thank you

    I think you can. Its worth asking Call Care Credit I know the cover ALL cosmetic, veterinary, complimentary medicine, dentistry and specialty medical. Its worth the inquiry to them.

    Lurking...We did two IVF cycles completely out of pocket. The first time we took out a $11,000 unsecured personal loan (paid it off) then the second time we took out a $4000 unsecured personal loan. We were very blessed the second time because our RE's clinic waves the doctor's fees, which are $5000, if the first cycle is a bust. We were also able to get the about a quarter of our meds for free (thanks to ladies that had left-overs).

    Best of Luck!

    We talked to the financial counselor at our RE's office. She gave us the information for two medical loan companies. Check with your doctor's office to see if they can point you in the right direction.
