    @SurferGalGC yes we were looking into the vr but ultimately decided to ivf instead as there were just too many stories/experiences of peoples vr not being successful so that put us off and made wonder what the true success rates really may be!

    So we have been looking mainly at primary ivf, the bulk billing one in Sydney, were going to fly down. It seems hard to get straight answers from the reception there though as in do we BOTH have to fly down 3-5 times, or just me, then some say they want me to stay in sydney for the entire cycle!
    On hearing that they are most definitely opening in Brisbane later this year, we realised problem solved, we would get prepared in the meantime then jump in as soon as they open.
    But have only just heard bbivf do the tesa/pesa now, so a little annoyed could have already gone through them, but oh well! Cant do anything about it now.

    I have heard ladies rave about bbivf as well as pivf, a lot of preg rates too, a lot love the fet cycles in that they see them as having a higher chance of sticking, but a lot like being able to jump straight into transfer with a fresh at pivf.
    I have seen a lot at bbivf being able to put 2 back in too. Some ladies have concerns if their embryo doesn't make it to the day they want to frezze on.

    I liked how the bbivf lady also said they send us all the path forms etc and we are able to go locally to get these tests/scans done, yes she told me it takes 6-8 weeks for all the results to get back too and to make sure my pap is up to date or they cant start.

    Decisions decisions!! 😁☺

    Lots to think of for us now!

    @monroe78 yes! Sooo many decisions. It feels like such a gamble and it's hard to know if we're making the right choices.

    Our urologist said we were his first failure, yay.

    Have you decided on bbivf then? I booked in for my pap on Tuesday and will try get all the forms in during the week sometime.

    We're taking some Wazza's basic supplements too, figured it can't hurt.

    I like that we can get a lot of the tests done locally as I'm on the GC. It sounds like the support might be a bit limited there but glad I've got you ladies to bounce questions off!

    @shelby27 good to know about the storage fees!

    Everyone seems to share the sentiment about how lovely the staff are.

    The lady I spoke to on the phone seemed nice and helpful. A bit rushed but friendly. Lucky I'd done enough research to keep up when she was rattling off all of the acronyms haha.

    If you are not a hard case and just need quite basic ivf save your money and go through a low cost centre

    Default Low cost IVF Brisbane Life Fertility

    @Meshell23 thank you!! I was checking out the tfc Springwood thread.. is your current pregnancy from them or bbivf? Congratulations by the way!

    Do you know if tfc do sperm aspiration at all? Would like to consider them if it's an option because they're a bit closer to home but I don't think they do.

    What are your thoughts on transferring fresh embryos compared with fet? If you've tried both that is!

    My 3 year old son was a day 2 fresh transfer from tfc
    My current pregnancy is a day 5 hatching blasty that was a frozen cycle. Bbivf only do frozen cycles. Both clinics are excellent. I dont have view on whether fresh or frozen are better as I have had success from both. Not sure whether tfc have started sperm aspiration they never used to

    @SurferGalGC we are still deciding, between pivf when they open here this year or bbivf. One thing with bbivf is you're awake during epu and some ladies have found it a bit sore, pivf have you asleep. The other thing im mulling over is the fet cycle is a lot longer, i think 8 weeks from start to epu to transfer and before that need to wait 6-8 weeks for the test results to get back to bbivf. So technically it could be 4 months until the first transfer is done plus the time it takes to get the tests done at the start of the process.
    Whereas im pretty sure the fresh cycle is a lot quicker and shorter to get from start to finish.

    I think too much haha 😁

    Monroe just a fyi your body is in a better place for a fet where as a fresh cycle is a bit rougher. As you have meds then epu so your ovaries are all a bit sore and bloated and when you have transfer if you fall preg you stay sore and bloated for kuch longer where as a fet your body gets to recover before transfer

    With a frozen from start of drugs to epu is about 2 weeks you will then get a period about 7-10 days later so that is whdn you get readu for frozen transfer is less than 3 weeks from that bleed there is about 10 days - 2 weeks longwr to do fet than fresh not much longer success rates are the same with either process
