    Default Does anyone go through Liverpool Fertility Centre for ICSI?

    I am thinking about TTC for no2 sometime this year. My original clinic and FS was in Bondi. Was very happy with service and outcome (a gorgeous 6 mth old) but it may be a little too far to commute to there this time , let alone the cost. I'm nervous about this as my FS was exceptional and got to the bottom of my fertility issues very quickly.

    So I'm looking for others who use Liverpool fertility as this is much closer to home for me and a lot cheaper than ivf Australia.

    what's it like? Would you recommend ? Outcomes and experiences? Any info will help.

    TIA

    this is my first cycle I'm on day 12 of jabbing

    I was having a bit of a down day yesterday and thinking of changing clinics as this one wasn't willing to up my meds and I have small follicles but then someone bought to my attention the fact that I have low amh and that's probs why so I'm ok with them now so far they have been really good it's a nice new clinic the nurses are friendly and it's actually a part of the ivf Australia group so same standards

    The only difference is they are on a rotating roster but I haven't found that to be an issue as its a pretty small clinic so I feel like iv met them all anyway lol
    They also only call for 4-6 follicles therefore lower dosages I'm on 150 at the moment I think it's also how they keep the cost down but you still have the same chance as anyone else.


    I only had to pay 1400 for my meds and the rest isn't due until after the transfer then we get half back from Medicare so you are only out of pocket 1300 which is great !! I like the fact that they are still listed on the ivf Australia website so I know they have the same standards also another reason why they are cheaper is because they only offers two treatments normal ivf and icsi they don't do doner or assisted hatching just the basics


    If you have any questions ask away

    But yes I would recommend it it's very affordable but still great standards

    Thanks Amandale! Oh good luck with your cycle you must be getting close to an egg pick up.
    The first cycle is always a bit hit or miss so your small follicles might have happened anyway even if you were at a bigger dose in a more expensive clinic.
    One of the reasons I am interested is because they are associated with IVF Australia who I found to be excellent.

    Have you had any contact with any doctors or just the nurses?

    And will they freeze any embryos left over?
    Ha ha I should just make an appointment and see what it like.

    Simply mum, hello there ! I think it's fantastic they have this new low cost option available in Liverpool- I'm sure in the future it will be just as popular as the Westmead one.

    If you don't mind me asking, are you ladies single or partnered? Is ICSI different to IUI?

    I'm engaged

    Icsi is when they Inject the sperm directly into the egg and is usually used for people who have low sperm motility
    Iui is completely different this is when the Sperm is injected directly in front of the Fallopian tube so it can swim its way up
    And with normal ivf the sperms are left in a dish next to the egg to fertilize

    I had another appointment today and have been given my trigger shot time and egg collection on Tuesday


    I have seen the nurses and specialist there, not to sure about the freezing I haven't asked that hmmm but over all they have been great I had a fantastic nurse today she made my partner and I laugh a lot which calmed the nerves haha
