Getting pregnant - Fertility test and OB-GYN advice?

Hi All,

I've been trying to get pregnant for some months and my OB-GYN has advised me to run a few fertility tests (he's specialized in these matters). He explained that the tests are covered by the mandatory health insurance, but I have the highest franchise, which means I'll pay from my pocket.

The tests (PCT, Hormones and fallopian tubes) cost more than CHF 1300. Does anyone know if this price is "reasonable"? I'm used to CH prices, but this seems extremely high to me. I called my insurance to see if they have a list of "reference prices" but they claimed I need to trust the doctor. Anyone could share their experience with the OB-GYN and tests costs?

I would also like to know if anyone can recommend an OB-GYN in the ZH area or nearby (e.g. Aargau), ideally with a focus on fertility and not too pricey (within swiss parameters, of course).

Any tips are super welcome! Thank you!
