Going through IVF cycle now. Every ultrasound session costs about $800-$900 each. My firm insurance covers like $90. I need to pay the rest out of pocket. Does this sound normal? Thank you!

Anyone removed a cyst right before starting stims for IVF? At this rate the earliest day to start stims is day 5 of my period and I. Afraid that's too late and wasted effort. Need some hope!
