    @Tahli they do know the gender BUT at MIVF will not have access to that part of the report until requested by you a bit later as they can't do gender selection unless for medical reasons. So I called 2 weeks later and found out. This also stops anyone persuading the clinic to use one normal embie because of gender before another.

    So basically you can't ask them to transfer a female embie say if you had two or more normal ones.

    @SpotTheOcelot newbie question alert....is MIVF Melbourne IVF or Monash IVF? Thanks so much for the info. I completely understand where they're coming from. There's no way I could chose if I was presented with two perfectly healthy embryos. I'd rather that be up to the embryologist! But I'd still love to know the gender of them.
    When I asked my 3 year old son if he'd prefer a baby brother or sister he was adamant that he wants a brother. I said but what about if it's a baby girl. He thought for a few moments and has decided on twins, one of each!

    No. I am with repromed. Tje embryoligist wouldnt tell me. I asked my fs to contact them to find out. They said they would have told me no matter how many embies. But I couldnt make my decision on gender. The healthiest embie would still get transfered.

    I'm so sorry to hear that @sarah1982. What's your next step?
    For any-one reading this at a later date I just wanted to update the info on costs for the scratch/biopsy. I was told it was going to cost $125 by my clinic which was wildly inaccurate. It actually cost about $300 for the scratch/biopsy and another $300 for the pathology, so $600 in total. Medicare do help out with some of these costs.
