    Do they open weekends? With no blood tests I'd be worried doing a FET if they were closed over the wknd. Did they breakdown the cost for you? Have you pretty much decided to to a November cycle with them? I guess the real way to know is to do a cycle & see how their drug regime compares.

    They grow embies to blasty then freeze. They seem to know what they are doing its no different to what tfc is to qfg just the low cost alternative to life fertility. Im keen to try them. Pap im sure they would work it for the fet. I will wait to see prices and stuff they offer assisted hatching glue and all that rubbish also.

    They only do day 5 transfers. Im interested in seeing their cost of an fet as they said they bulk bill majority of services so it may be better than freezing costs and fet costs from fertility centre. I will have to wait an see. I really dont want to keep cramming my body with all these drugs

    Just had my appt the FET for glue was $100 and $325 for hatching.

    IVF was $500 upfront plus scripts $37.70 and trigger shot leuprorelin $140

    ICSI is $444 if you want it.

    Only FET.

    Have my next appt 1st Octotober and can start next cycle if I want. (They have all my blood tests and records)

    The BT is to see if there is a chance of overstim so if they use Lucrin this is reduced and with a freeze all cycle no need to worry at ET either.

    Sounds promising!

    I think it sounds ok. The 500 is a bit of a stretch though I will have 3 scripts plus icsi with epu and trigger so it will cost me oop $1000 or so

    Sounds not too bad.
    But there has to be freezing costs involved. If, say 50 women go through the full 'freeze all' cycle and get pregnant with embryo's remaining.. they're not going to store these embryos indefinitely without cost.
    And how much does it cost for a FET cycle, because this is what everyone will do essentially, following a freeze all cycle. I like the fact they do 5dt & culture to blast before freezing.

    I can understand no BT with the stimulated cycle as trigger will be used for egg retrieval. I wouldn't be happy to rely upon USS alone on an I medicated FET cycle however, as you run the risk of missing ovulation.

    Sounds promising, in terms of cost so far. I have 2-3 more FET cycles to go at TFC & then I have to weigh up continuing or not. We're hopefully moving in April & won't be able to continue with IVF in brisbane after this point anyway.

    She said the cost of FET was bulk billed so nothing except for the glue and hatching if that means anything to you guys.

    Forgot to ask about freezing but I think you can choose to pay monthly, or 6 monthly there.
