    They didn't mention BMI but I am less than 35 but not significantly. Dr Lukic is the chubbiest Fertility specialist there at the moment so maybe she's the one you should ask for? She is my Dr.

    Default Thank you

    Hi again

    Thank you so much for the feedback. I'm hoping that we can start the process very soon. I already have two beautiful girls, now aged 14 and 12(on Monday) from a previous relationship. My DH and I would love to have one together too. Considering my daughters ages, I was wondering if I should ask for two embryos to be transferred, in the hope for twins. I don't want the new baby to be alone. What do you think? It's always nice to hear other peoples opinions too. Unfortunately, I've had a couple of problems along the way so I can't conceive naturally anymore. I've had cysts removed from both ovaries, twice. Severe endometriosis and one fallopian tube removed. The other fallopian tube could not be found due to the endometriosis. So, IVF is our only hope. I'm turning 38 this year. I'm really hoping that they will allow us to transfer two embryos.

    Good luck on this journey and please keep me posted
    xx

If you are doing a frozen embryo transfer you sometimes have to pay for the medication after the transfer, but it seems to differ from person to person.

    Yes they do fresh and frozen cycles.

    They told me only 1 embryo, but some ladies in my primary group have been allowed to transfer 2, they were in their 40's though.

    If you wanted a scratch done you would need to book it with the FS but it wouldn't be covered by Medicare like the rest.

    Hope that helps, don't worry about asking too many questions, I have asked thousands! There's just so much confusion and uncertainty when starting.

    Hi

    Congratulations on the pregnancy, I wish you all the best. Thank you for the feedback, also. It help a lot to be informed before making all these decisions.

    One question: Do they only allow for two embryos to be transffered when you are over 40 or do they look at each person's situation? Are they quite difficult about transferring only one?

    Please keep us posted on your pregnancy and how everything is going.

    Take care

    Default primary ivf so far may 2015

    I just started my first cycle with primary. So far so good. Just starting my first round of jabs. To date I've had 2 appointments with dr Gabriel with DH who sent us for u/sound, some blood tests and then we met with dr lukic the fs.pretty straight forward and she told me to meet with the nurse who goes through how to use the injection pen etc. Day one of my cycle i called nurse and they said come into laverty at town hall before 9am the next day. I thought id be able to go to a pathology closer to home but they prefer going to town hall to guarantee results are processed that day.got a call back around 1:30pm same day to start my meds So collected them the next morning. Chemist at town hall had the order there so just gave me a cooler bag and another bag with all the meds for the whole cycle. So far hasn't cost me anything apart from the $60 blood test before treatment started. told me to inject with the pen for 4 days then I've to go back for blood test and u/sound which nurse booked me in for when she told me meds i needed.keeping everything crossed but long road ahead.

    Goodluck @sydma, hope it all goes well. What do u think of Dr lukic?? I've heard mixed reviews. Did they mention a bmi to u?? DH & I have had all our tests with ivfa only in October last year so they should still be ok to use (usually if they are within 12 months of date there good to use) were hoping to get an app soon but with DH away alot it's hard trying to find out when he will be home. Hmm not sure how I would go about getting to town hall before 9am, where 2 has away & that's not in peak hour, hopefully I can go somewhere local. Keep us up to date on your progress....luck & baby dust 🌌🌌😊

    Default primary ivf so far may 2015

    Hi @Butterflybabe i thought dr lukic was fine. wasn't in there v long just enough to confirm results and how long we've been trying etc. Didn't ask about bmi but gp had taken height and weight on my first appt so no issues. Yes getting in before 9am is a challenge. They have a courier at 9:30 so maybe if you go to a pathology closer to home just ask what time the courier arrives and if it's enough time for them to get it processed. Got bloods and u/sound this morning booked for the same time to keep on track after 4days of puregon.not having any issues with injections yet, ice the area first and hardly feel it which is one less thing to worry about!
    if your results from the ivf clinic are still in date hopefully that saves you some time. I had previously been to ivf Australia but was over 12mths ago and they hadn't tested for the same things so did it all again plus more! They also hadn't requested u/sounds etc before seeing the Fs so primary ivf have all bases covered. Good luck with your next step.

    Default egg collection Darlinghurst

    Hi there, had my egg collection through primary ivf at Darlinghurst.went v smoothly indeed, wasn't sure if sedation meant I was going to be semi awake but I literally woke up in recovery not even knowing it was done so im pretty pleased with that. after a quiet sit down we left within the hour. they got 7eggs which I hope will be enough. waiting game now to see if any embryos develop. Service was great in surgery. a bit delayed to start but once you go through the door its like a well oiled machine. DH gets his trip upstairs to deposit while you are in. Bit more fun for them bit of porn and job done! They gave me panedeine Forte which means not much pain more like the odd uncomfortable twinge really but completely manageable. keeping everything crossed.

    Hi Sydma

    I'm happy to hear that you had a good experience with the egg retrieval. We're only going for our first appointment in June, I can't wait.

    When is your transfer? Are you going for a fresh or frozen cycle? Best of luck and baby dust to you
