    Talking Advice for new Concept IVF Perth,WA HELP

    Concept Fertility Centre, Perth WA. Help. Has anyone been to this clinic and if so what is are your experiences?
    Is there anything I need to be asking or doing when I go to the 1st appointment?
    What advice can you give my Hubby & I?
    I am 37.We have been trying for 2yrs-but not strictly,plus I have only just started monitoring my Ovulation Cycle and my Specilist Gyno is sending me for blood tests from day 10. Any advice help would be great. Our specialist Gyno did refer us to Concept rather than Hollywood.

    I was a patient at Concept until I fell pregnant naturally. I did 4 IVF/PGD cycles with 3 transfers. I loved it there. The staff were all friendly and professional and nothing was too much trouble and no question too 'silly'. Because we were doing PGD for a gene mutation that Concept hadn't dealt with before there were many hurdles to get over and approvals from various boards and bodies to contend with. The scientific director at Concept got right behind me and really pushed my case to the various boards and kept me informed, personally, every step of the way.

    I also wasn't really sure what to expect on my first appointment but I'm guessing my situation was a little different. Do you know what fertility specialist (FS) you will be under yet at Concept? If I remember correctly I met with my FS at his clinic near Concept first and talked over options and ideas. My first trip to Concept was to meet the fertility nurse who made dates and times for me to come in and pick up the drugs I'd be using, and to run through the ins and outs of the process I'd decided on with my FS. It was at this point I asked all my hair brained questions!

    All I can say is that I would thoroughly recommend Concept. As I said, nothing was too much trouble, no matter how many times I had to ask, they were happy to keep explaining.

    Good luck with it all! xxoo

    I am in the process of using them at the moment... al I have to do currently is talk on the phone with them but they have on a couple of occassions gone out of their way to help me with some problems... (like being on day 67 with no signs of a day one approaching so couldn't get tested then )

    every one seems very friendly!

    Thank you so much Ladies for your replies, input. I am wrapped to hear from all of you. jellyBeanInc you have probally had yr Bub now. I am now on my 4th round of IVF. I had 1 cycle cancelled of those 4. Today I had an embryo transfer x2. So I am very Excited. My test date is 6th of October 2012.Yes freaking out till then. But (goodvibes). Concept Fertility in Subi have been really great, and as you both mentioned nothing is really too much trouble. No matter how busy they are, they always have time for me & my DH.

    we just started at Concept, after having some experience with Holliwood a year ago and I BY FAR prefer Concept. So much friendlier, my FS is wonderful and in comparison to the nasty pasty we saw at Hollywood she is a dream. Very very lovely place.

    I am in the jabbing stage of my first cycle with Concept (and IVF) and I don't have a bad thing to say about them...Except there was this one mean old receptionist lady at my first appointment, but I haven't seen her since.


    BTW, yes I know this post is old
