    Default Anyone going to WFC (Westmead) #5

    Thanks Hopeful and MrsJag for the helpful info. I really appreciate it. I managed to find a compounding pharmacy and I pick up my progesterone Monday.

    Welcome Ange! I have not used Pregnyl sorry. I would be asking Dr Lok for a rough timeline for a cycle. So you can get a roundabout idea of when your appointments would fall. I would also be asking him about the meds that would be involved in your protocol, any side effects etc. Best of luck!

    HI girls, I wrote my first post to this thread yesterday but also love to know some things form those who have been at Westmead for a little while:

    Im seeing Dr Lok for initial consult but sounds like we see nurses from then on. Does the doc to the egg pick up and transfer?

    Has anyone being dealing with immune issues (NK cells) and Dr Matthias at same time? Im on another forum for this but interested to know.

    Has anyone used PDG via Westmead? Ive never had any good enough excess embies to freeze and test but in case I do...looks like they charge 2.5k for PDG, is that correct? Seems like a lot of money for one embie? Perhaps I could go through two cycles and test two at least - harder for older ladies like me that don't produce enough eggies.

    Anyone here over 40?

    Thanks, hope you having a lovely Sunday just a bit of pink stuff for us all!

    @ange1111....the nurses are ur main point of contact with Westmead ....the initial consult of coarse is with ur fertility specialist but about 90% afterwards is dealing with the lovely nurses . They all have seemed very switched on and informative and I personally have never experienced an issue with them to date . You will be advised wen u need to see ur FS directly to adjust meds if needed or if there is a delay with ur transfer etc

    I believe the transfer itself is done by whoever is on duty that day to complete transfers and I also believe FS can complete the transfer as well . The actual egg pick up is a memory from me ( did this 4 mths ago) but I believe I had a doctor in that room with a nurse or two as well ...??? Such a faint memory of it as I was so overwhelmed on the day and so nervous .
    I'm sorry I can't shed any info on PGD but hopefully someone else here can help with that . It's quite an expensive procedure isn't it ?? But wellllll worth it .
    All the best and happy Sunday to u !
    Enjoy !

    Yes your doc for egg pick up and transfer is whoever of the FS are scheduled on at that time. My last cycle was Dr Bradbury as FS, Dr Smith did egg pick up and Dr Fong did the transfer.
    I think the pgd testing cost is for the batch not for individual embryos so you can do a few stims to build up a batch and then have them tested in one go for one cost. I haven't done it myself so yes check with the nurses :-)

    Hey love, we're a bit of a mess! We seem to be in a never ending cycle of scary bleed + cramps, reassuring ultrasound, scary bleed + cramps. I'm 9w1d. We see OB again on Thursday for another scan.. which is good, because I had bleeding + cramps again today. It's just ridiculous. I'm desperate for this baby to hang in there. So far, it's a fighter.

    Hi, we're in the middle of PGD testing with WFC. It's $2,500 for upto 14 embryos, same price for 1 or 14. We're doing multiple IVF cycles to batch embryos to get as many as possible for testing - done 2 cycles so far resulting in 16 embryos & currently debating doing a 3rd before we test. We're doing PGD for balanced chromosome translocation which at best will give us 30% useable embryos

    Hi ladies. I need a PGD for my IVF cycle. I am currently with Genea. Finished my second cycle egg pick up and waiting for transfer. They charged me a lot for each cycle just for pick up.
    Thinking to switch to WFC if no luck. Hows WFC services and lab?
    Genea nurses follow up patient 7 days a week. Hows WFC? Same service?

    And how long do u have to wait to see your FS? Is it long wait??

    Best of luck ladies.

    Hi Ange1111. Genea and IVF Australia cost (around) up to $2500 as well. For Genea and IVF Australia, they charge $800 for each embryo. However, their cycle and theatre charge are extremely high. No other so called bulk bill clinic do PGD. I dun think u can pay any cheaper than that. Seem like PGD is an complicated process that most clinic dont want to provide this service.
