    Hi there,

    Can't help you with exact cost but I go to Monash gold coast and from the research I've done they are a much of a muchness $$$ wise,

    I'm doing an antagonist cycle + ha-icsi and that is costing us $8800 that's just the cycle, then depending if you have phi.. admission for EPU is diff for each fund.. Like mine is $30 for day surgery but If no phi then I think it's around $1000, then anaesthetic is around $450.. Which I get half back from my fund..

    I think last year we got about $5100 back from Medicare.

    You should be able to ring Monash and get them to email you a price list.

    Hi ladies,

    I'm switching to Monash IVF from Melbourne IVF. So i think you guys have done the right thing by going to Monash first!! An IVF/ICSI cycle will cost you about $3300 after medicare rebates and if you have private health insurance. this does not include all the initial test they do before you start a cycle like blood tests (BTs), ultrasounds, SA (semen analysis).

    I had a friend with unexplained infertility and they went thru 6 cycles at Monash before conceiving their gorgeous boy. they tried icsi and normal ivf, and their bub was thru normal ivf.

    Good luck with your journeys

    I went through Monash IVF in Sunshine and I am so happy with them! I am so glad I chose them over any others!
