Ta heaps. Very helpful. Yep, I do have PHI for hospital cover. I'm guessing you don't know if they have a local sperm donor database?
I have the fees here so
Standard IVF - $7860
IVF /ICSI - $8640 - Includes lab fees, blood tests, scans, and semen prep. Remote bloods may be an extra $300 or so.
Day surgery fees - $970 -wazza rebate medicare and private health
Anaesthetist $600 - rebate
Hospital -$1100 - private health may cover.
They had a database last year when I picked my guy. I have 5 vials and I used him with my own eggs last year then today with my donor eggs. Wazza will actually assist in the selection process depending on your issues. He vitoed my paleo eating super fit man and told me to pick again.
Tahli As far as I understand it, it depends on the state. For example NSW & WA it's 5 families but everywhere else I think it is 10 (including their own family). So a donor's limit depends on the state of the recipient she is donating to. So anyone donating to me (in NSW) couldn't have donated to more than 4 families including her own. I also can't on donate my unused embryos. I quickly googled those figures so don't quote me
@Maxwellsmum thats a fab egg haul im so excited for you. Very disapointing about your lining. Mine is thinner this time too post scratch and flush. Although still good.
@calypso75 good luck for epu tomorrow luv.
@Tahli welcome back luv. This thread isnt the same without you
@Blossom im stamping my feet in your frustration about your add approval. Cmon
@aime999 wazza is tha bomb ive been to 3 different clinics and 4fs and he is by far the best. Clinically and bed side manner etc. Although he did ask me for cannualation tips yesterday. Hee hee. He couldnt get my line in for intralipids. We sorted it though.
Hi to everyone else ive had a big day. Hopefully do more personals later.
Dh and i have decided to go to epu fri. We have 4 follicles seen rhs 22mm, 20mm lhs usually empty. Rhs18mm 15mm 13mm but E2 is only 1334 so im guessing maybe 2 eggs? However i figure 2 is better than none which ive had in the past so fx i get at least 3 but happy with 2. 1 will be tough... i have been there too though. Ah the roller coaster continues. Linning is almost 10. Yippee.
@BlondeinBrisvegas im praying you're right luv. Thanks for your luck. My last cycle E2 was 4000 and i got 3 eggs then 2 transferred and a m/c but i cant remember which day that was. Anyway i hope this is it. I trigger at 9 so bring on bfp April. 😀
Tahli and @BlondeinBrisvas Hi! Wazza told me it was because his twin numbers were way way over what they should be and he is now forced to keep them down especially when it comes to such young donors being used due to risk of every double embryo transfer leading to twins (for example mine is 21 and this is her first donation) so he's treading cautiously. He also doesn't want to jeopardise the program by getting a red flag on his transfers so other indented parents miss out in the future. So think he's stepping slowly and mindfully all round.
