[QUOTE=lileitak;8454048]This is all available on VARTA for Monash IVF. Not sure Lynn has her own stats as she is part of the larger team and I believe they report together.
A quick Google would have lead you here.
Hello, I did all my googling and Varta didn't come up, it was only pages to do with Monash, where on the site are the stats?
Im looking at advantages/disadvantages and anything that can sway me.
I have already dealt with Monash before and I find their admin/nurses completely unreliable and now that I have this upcoming appt with Lyn and no one has replied its not giving me much faith.
@lissimmo from my own experience Lynn's rooms prefer to deal with patients over the phone. It's a very hectic environment, whenever I've been in the waiting room their phones go off non stop. They seem to use the email address to release medical info/ results only (they sometimes have an auto email reply which specifies this). It's a bit frustrating I know as I myself much prefer things to be in writing! But as I really wanted to see Lynn I persevered. Also, Lynn mentioned some stats to me in my first appointment.. I didn't ask but she was comparing Monash to my previous clinic (sorry can't recall what they were as it was over a year ago now). But also agree with some other comments- the stats are interesting to know but as I have a tricky case I feel they aren't really relevant to me. Am currently overseas right now trying my luck with a donor egg!

Before we started IVF a couple years ago, I did heaps on online "research" and concluded that, for me personally, there was more to a doctor than stats. As I said, Lynn takes on difficult patients, some of whom will never have success, which will sway her results.
I also realised I should have linked the report, not the VARTA site.
This will give you all the stats for Monash - and specifically Richmond/Hawthorn where Lynn is based. Stats start on p31.
I also agree with the others, telephone is the best way. God, sometimes you can barely get through on the phone they are so busy.

Umm I feel the fs at my old clinic didn't want to investigate when we had a Chem preg and 2 fail fet transfer with them. Their motto were it's a numbers game just keep throwing eggs in there. The fs didn't even bother checking my tubes or nothing so that's y we decided to switch.
Further more my old clinic does not do ultrasound guided transfer and I believe a combination of endo scratch by Lynn and ultrasound guided tranfer brought me this BFP. Oh and I took up walking on trad mill every second night a couple of weeks leading up to tranfer and continue to do so now.
We felt we should have switch clinic after our first FET fail but hey what can we go just Glad jt worked out for the best.
Hope this helps 😀
@lissimmo - please speak to Lynn about your concern's about the nurses and people getting back to you. I know I did and she completely understood where I was coming from and was dealing with my concerns.
Definitely well worded.
Pregnant for the first-time?
