Sims IVF is at the forefront of advanced infertility testing – we offer a number of tests that other clinics in Ireland simply do not provide – and new treatments are being pioneered and introduced all the time.

Costs and treatments between clinics do vary, so it is important to have clarity to help you to make an informed choice.

We strongly believe in transparency over pricing – and the list below is all encompassing so you are always aware of the costs and not surprised by hidden extras.

Now More Affordable

Ireland's No. 1 fertility choice is now more affordable.  As Sims IVF Cork no longer charges for the Blastocyst / Extended Culture laboratory procedure, our price for IVF including blastocyst is now EUR 4,600.

Principal Treatment Procedures

IVF treatment procedure charges include planning and co-ordination, ultrasound scans (carried out as part of the procedure), administration, anaesthesia, doctors / nursing fees and laboratory fees. Your 1st Beta HCG and 1st Ob. scan after IVF are also included free of charge. Medications, blood tests (excluding cycle monitoring bloods), and counsellor’s fees are not included. Patients are asked to note that payment is due prior to each treatment cycle.

Cycle prices listed below, include Cycle Monitoring Bloods at first and final scan. A cycle co-ordination & monitoring fee of €1,000 (non refundable) is required for IVF and Egg Freezing cycles. This fee will be deducted from the cost of treatment.

From 1st February 2014 Satellite Monitoring Services will no longer be available to patients. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Oocytes (eggs) and embryos often require a specific thawing kit which matches with the kit used to freeze them. If your oocytes or embryos require a kit which Sims IVF does not normally stock, a specific kit will have to be purchased each time you have a thaw performed. As this will only be used for your samples, we must unfortunately make a charge for this of €250 each time. If you are thinking of shipping your samples to Sims IVF and have questions regarding this, please contact us on”
