Premature Ovarian Failure is the loss of a woman’s normal ovary function before the age of 40. This condition is a cause of infertility. For women wanting to have a baby, the best treatment for this medical condition is In Vitro Fertilization using donor eggs.
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Ovarian Reserve is a blood test used to determine a woman’s ovarian reserve. Ovarian reserve is the capability of a woman to produce eggs.
Testing for Premature Ovarian Failure
FSH is a hormone produced in a gland near the pituitary. FSH is the key hormone responsible for the cyclical development of eggs each month. FSH levels rise when a woman becomes less capable of producing an egg resulting in conception. FSH levels increase as a woman ages.
Other measures of determining a woman’s ovarian reserve include:
- Clomid Challenge Test
- Levels of AMH
- Ovarian Volume Assessment
- Ovarian Volume measured via ultrasound
- Antral Follicle Count determined via ultrasound
Treatments for Premature Ovarian Failure
- Estrogen Therapy
- Calcium and Vitamin D Supplements
- In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) using donor eggs
The cost of a Third Party IVF Cycle using donor eggs ranges between $20,000 to $25,000, depending upon whether the patient is using a known or anonymous donor.
Illinois Infertility Insurance Law
The state of Illinois mandates insurance coverage for fertility treatment. Illinois law requires insurance companies and HMOs to provide coverage for reproductive treatment to employee groups of 25+. The Illinois law does not apply to self-insured employers, to trusts, or to insurance policies written outside of the state.
The best way to determine if your medical insurance covers the cost of your ovarian failure treatment is to contact your insurer directly. A policy may not apply any unique co-payments or deductibles for infertility coverage – including prescription fertility drugs.
