Dear Christabell

The fact that both tubes are totally blocked would strongly mitigate in favour of invitro fertilization which is the more expensive of the two options. However, artificial insemination is unlikely to be successful even after many attempts due to the blocked tubes and therefore, on a cost benefit scale, in vitro fertilization will certainly be more cost effective treatment option in the long run
