According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately six million couples suffer from infertility in the United States. Experts estimate that one particular type of infertility treatment is attempted nearly 100,000 times per year at a cost of $12,400 per treatment. Adoption, both domestic and international, can cost between $5,000 to upwards of $30,000. For many couples, these costs are worth it for the opportunity to have children.
