    I just did my 3rd cycle there in May which has resulted in a pregnancy. I am now 7 weeks.

    They are awesome, supportive, friendly and they talk you through the whole process.

    It is reasonably priced you pay two payments. The first is when you pick up your injections and the second after your embryo transfer. I think you end up $3000 and something out of pocket, I haven't paid my second payment yet, as Medicare are still processing my forms.

    You don't see the doctors much (but the Nurses are very helpful and know their stuff)
    When you do see a doctor you don't get the same one.. Which really didn't bother us because you hardly see them.. You see a doctor for a consultation, egg retrieval, embryo transfer and for an ultra sound if you get a positive result.

    Hope I could help.

    Thanx for the reply Jplusr and congratulations on your pregnancy :-) the nurse we saw was lovely, don't really mind not seeing the same Dr all the time. How did you find egg retrieval?? I know your awake but under light sedation. Thanx again

    No worries, I wish someone told me all this before I started lol!

    Thanks

    The egg retrieval sounds scary, but really you feel two little stabs and a bit of discomfort. They give you some pain killers and Valium before you go in, and when you are in there, there is some gas (which I found helped)

    It's pretty cool you get to see them taking out your folicals on a screen, and they tell you how many eggs as you go.

    Hope u are well JplusR, we have decided to wait until after the new year to do our first cycle. We're hoping for January but my cycle is just before they reopen after Christmas so will probably have to be February unless my cycle changes, It gives us a little more time to save more (if we need it but fingers crossed first go 😉) I'm really inpatient but I guess I've waited this long a few more months won't hurt me lol.
