If you really want a biological child, you could opt for getting an IVF treatment. Unfortunately, IVF treatments in the United States do not come cheap. The average price for IVF in the US lies around 12.000 US dollars, and doesn’t even include the cost of medicine. Luckily, there are great countries in the world to get safe and reliable IVF treatment at a much lower price, for example in the Czech Republic.
