"Most reproductive clinics now offer special financing packages, like discounts for multiple I.V.F. cycles paid upfront, or options to have part of the fee refunded if you don’t become pregnant....Univfy, a company that sells I.V.F. prediction tests, has recently introduced a free online “I.V.F. cost calculator” that uses your probability of becoming pregnant to help you compare the cost of different financing options."
"Univfy’s prediction models actually show more than 60 percent of the women who use them have a higher probability of IVF success than their age-based estimates alone suggest.....I’m Ms. Prepared, so I like the idea of being realistic about what your chances of getting pregnant might be, because IVF always seems to be the great unknown."
"More than seven million people struggle with infertility in this country. Treatments are now widely available, but they can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Now a company based in Los Altos is offering women a personalized predictor of their chances of success with IVF."
"Many women in their late 30s and beyond turn to IVF, usually with little sense of whether the physically demanding and expensive treatments are likely to work. Services like Univfy are trying to help women understand their own fertility better....[Univfy] draws on detailed data from a five-year study of IVF patients and other predictive models to provide personalized information about an individual’s likelihood of conception."
