    @midnite01 good luck with your scan today. I hope it starts to provide some answers as to what is going on.
    @Blossom74 the debate was put off till today. Hopefully they were still reading all the emails yesterday.

    I can confirm that they are, as I just now received a response back from Catherine King. She essentially said that the Labor Party would consider sensible reforms which will make health care more accessible to the people, but that the current proposal put forth for amendment would have a seriously adverse impact on many Australians and that they would be opposing that.

    That's good to hear you have heard back Blossom. I have the day off work and am wondering if I should watch Parliament question time. I think it would send me to sleep though. I think they only show the House of Representatives during the day, not the Senate so probably not worth watching anyway.

    I just sent my emails to the senators/pollies now. hope it isn't too late. I read one article (about effects on ivf) that mentions it affects cancer patients medication/care costs also. as if they don't have enough to worry about! disgraceful.

    @BlondeinBrisvegas thanks heaps for the link. It says to stop taking the viagra when you start progesterone, which for me is Wednesday, so it would only give me one day of benefit. Damn. I'm going to totally keep it in mind if I need to another cycle though.
    @JulieMalooley was there anything in the package that you sent me that might help with my lining? I remember your lining being gold star 12mm!
    @Tahli, no I don't think so. Provera helps with lining I believe though.
    Sorry everyone I have not been keeping up. We have lost half our dept at work (our building with 10 offices now only has 3 of us in it ) and we have a deadline that we probably can't meet and after spending all day coding at work the last thing I feel like is looking at another screen when I get home. I'll try to catch up on weekends. I hope everyone is going ok...

    Blossom
    Thank you for your correspondence regarding access to IVF services and the Turnbull Government’s proposed changes to the Medicare safety nets. I share your concerns about the impact that these changes will have which is why Labor will not be supporting them when they are debated in the Senate later today.

    The very intention of the safety net is to recognise that some patients need greater access to medical services, often due to a significant health event in any one year, and are designed to ensure patients in circumstances like yours don’t face significant out-of-pocket costs so that you can get access to the medical services you need.

    I do want to say that in considering the proposed changes to the Medicare safety nets, Labor does believe that the existing arrangements are complicated and are not as well targeted as they could be. So we would be open to considering sensible reforms that better target the safety nets and make them more accessible. But the changes the government is looking to make will have a seriously adverse impact on hundreds of thousands of Australians – especially those requiring ongoing access to psychiatrists, radiation oncology patients, and people accessing assisted reproductive technology services.

    Unfortunately, the policy of the Turnbull Government has been designed simply to cut costs from the health system which has well and truly been a theme of this government, having cut more than $60 billion from public hospitals, hundreds of millions from preventive health and public dental programs, and its ongoing GP Tax through its Medicare indexation freeze which in itself represents a cut to Medicare of some $2 billion.

    For what it’s worth, when Labor introduced Medicare more than 30 years ago, then Prime Minister Bob Hawke warned that without it more than 2 million people “faced potential financial ruin in the event of major illness”. Today, because of Labor, we have one of the best health systems in the world. By OECD standards Australia has a relatively modest expenditure on health and gets extremely good outcomes, having one of the highest life expectancies in the world. It is important that the universality of Australia’s health system continues and that the Medicare safety net remain accessible to those who need it most.

    These changes are yet to be considered before the Senate, but I can assure you that Labor will continue to oppose them there, consistent with our belief that every Australian should have access to the highest quality of care, regardless of where they live and regardless of their capacity to pay.

    I wish you and your family well and please let me know if I can be of any help to you.

    Yours sincerely

    Catherine King
    Shadow Minister for Health

    I'm currently sitting in Monash having my intralipids. The nurse said he's not seen anyone have more than 200mls so I'm not sure any of us would be too successful in being administered 500mls. You can only ask though of course.
    I didn't get any responce from CFC lastnight about how to increase my lining which is bl~~dy frustrating. I wonder what my lining would have been if I hadn't have doubled the progynova. I'm guessing I can stop synarel now too?? Hopefully I'll hear from them tonight with a responce on if the cycle can go ahead, FET transfer time, stopping synarel and starting POI tomorrow.
    @midnite01 how did you scan go hun?

    @Tahli I hope you get some advice soon, the waiting and worrying is awful.
    @midnite01 how did you go today?

    No news from me, just more bloods and a scan on thursday. I'll be CD12 by then so hopefully close to trigger or ovulation. Transfer end of next week I reckon.
