    Just spoke with my nurse and we still have 14 going so all set for Monday transfer. They are grade a's and b's. I'm very happy after our last attempt.

    Jen, good luck Sunday.

    Afm I have my first scan next Friday and we will see how it eventuates.. My body doesn't like to cooperate at times, so I imagine depending on the scan I will start BTing 3 days after scan and will do this every second day until ovulation occurs!!

    Hi everyone, I'm sorry to interrupt your thread, and I am sure you have all heard all this before, but I am wondering if some one could recommend a IVF FS in Melbourne. I want some one I can feel comfortable with. Someone I can trust will do the utmost to help DH and I on our quest. I currently see Kate Stern with Melbourne IVF. I have had 7 IVF cycles with her, and although I like her, my husband feels she is in too much of a hurry and mainly after the $. Im undecided, none-the-less, its time for a change, and a new approach. I have looked at the other Doctor's, but I have no idea. Any advice??!!

    Hi mysweetboy!!

    I know a few of us made apts and changed to Lyn Burmeister at Monash Ivf. I made an apt (cancelled it) but currently seeing how my next FET goes to decide if we will make another with her.

    She is very thorough, and likes to do a variety of tests /procedures before even starting a cycle with you. I believe she is the director there too.

    I'm with city fertility clinic and my FS is great too but sometimes I want him to be a little more gungho!! He is very much by the book and doesn't like to do anything too experimental.. But other girls on here see different FS from city fertility and they have different experiences and would recommend there's.

    Different FS specialise in different areas, I would seek an FS who specialised in the area of why you are doing ivf.

    Lyn I think is a good all rounder, but then when I was researching at melb ivf there is a FS there, who specialises in recurrent miscarriage. Then on the other hand if pgd (embryo chromosome testing) could be where you are headed, melb ivf should be where you stay but change to another FS.

    Sorry I'm rambling, I hope I'm making sense..I would make an apt with a couple of new FS, tell them your history and see who you feel more comfortable with and who has the better approach to your situation.

    Good luck!!

    Yep, agreed ^

    I was with MIVF and felt the same way, I was with Dr Haider Najjar... I got more out of 30 mins with Lynn Burmister @ Monash than I did through 6 months with Melbourne!
    I'd recommend a clinic change.
    Melbourne NEVER tested me once they knew DH had a sperm issue... Also told us we had a 1% natural chance.... Anyway went to Monash & Lynn was shocked I hadn't been tested, ordered me BT's straight away, also send me for a laparoscopy as she said the opposite to Melbourne, that with DH's sperm issue, she is suprised after almost 2 years we haven't conceived naturally... Hence the laparoscopy & BINGO - looks like I have / had endo & pcos..... Looking forward to going back & seeing Lynn in September.
    I recommend her !
    Good luck...

    Hi strawberry,
    I am with monash geelong. First cycle with them and I am having my embies put back tomorrow morning!
    Really happy with the service, I am under prof kovacs. The nurses are lovely too!!!!
    I had fertility treatment in the uk which resulted in my son, so I do have somewhere to compare and I am more than happy with monash!

    Any questions, just ask!

    Jen

    Good luck for tomorrow Jen, I am under Gab as well. It's great to find someone going through the same clinic, it just makes it a bit more reassuring

    Zakmick and MARTTC- Thanks for your thoughts. Well my 'cause' of infertility is "unexplained infertility" well, so they say. The thing is, according to chinese medicine, I have stagnant blood and not enough good blood flow to the uterus. This makes sense to me, as sorry for tmi, but I also have very acidic vaginal mucus. I am positive this is what kills the tadpoles on their journey

    But now, DH has a very limited count, almost nothing and the ones that are there barely move, so its not just me.

    Due to my embryo's being fragile and not lasting long, I am thinking of have the genetic and chromosome testing done. If that is the case, so you still recommend Melbourne IVF, or is there someone at Monash that can do it?

    I dont know why, but I always got the feeling that Melbourne were more professional than Monash, though Melbourne has recently made some pretty silly mistakes with me, one of which could have cost me a whole cycle, and I would have had to wait for the following month.

    Hi ladies,

    Was just reading a few pages earlier and came across the chat on orgalutran and bruising.

    Jen80, for my last 2 cycles, I was on the antagonist cycles and used orgalutran too. I usually find a comfortable spot to jab, pull up some skin and do my jab really slowly. Once the tip of the needle goes in, the rest is easy. As the orgalutran needles is thicker, it may be a bit more difficult to break the skin. The orgalutran needle is exactly the same as the ovidrel trigger jab. I find that by doing it slowly I dont suffer any burning sensation or swells or bruise. So I didnt find them that scary after all. That's for me, just sharing hoping to contribute a thought or two. I am a needle phobic!
