Pihu, sorry to hear that you are feeling sad. I have had too many of this episode lately. I was so angry with the world why it has to be me who fall into the 20% miscarriage catagory. A miracle has been given to us and was taken away from us in such a short period of time. Given that my career isn't going the way i wanted, I hate every day of my life right now. Just vent, we are all here to give support. I am finally seeing a counselor this week (again, kind of a pain for not being in the medicare system. Another expense out of pocket......). I am getting through all of these on my own at the moment. DH doesn't want to hear anything about it. It hurts him deeply and the way moving forward is to give up having a child........
SD, I thought endo scratch needs to be done a month before the transfer. 3 months buffer is OK? Dr. M fee is $300. It seems like price has gone up. It is still cheaper than the FS that we saw here in Perth. $360 + $160 follow up for no outcome. IVF fee in general is more expensive here than the east coast for whatever reason, although it doesn't proportional to their quality of service. eg: donor coordinate fee is $500+$100/6 months with 18 months waiting period. At IVFA, $100 with 4 months wait. $0 (?) at Fertility first with no waiting period. Tests such as cgh is sent to sydney and hence can't do fresh transfer but to wait for next cycle. There is possibility of damaging the embies in transit (some unfortunate ladies encountered that!).
It seems like the FS fees at IVFA depends on their qualification. DH's FS charges $200 while my FS ~$140. Interstate phone consult has no rebate which charges an affordable fee of $65! While i can get rebate for the consult (full amount), the out of pocket certainly is more than $65. I must say, though, it is kinda awkward doing phone consult.
Baby dust everyone!
