@Tinachris - sorry to read your suffering coming off the prednisone too hun. Its the worst knowing you will have to go on it again too isn't it, when I was told my dose would be upped this cycle a black cloud of dread came over me just at the thought!!!
@kylie764 - Congratulations on being PUPO hun, I am sure your post will be reasurring to @Muchulul1 to know it can be done.
@Chyna - Hope your side effects ease soon hun and you can get off it quickly.
@Charlie74 I am up on the coast and its a long way for me to travel down to Brisbane just for a blood test so I opted to have mine done locally at qml. As the form couldn't be marked bulk bill I was quoted for them and I remember it being so expensive it would have been cheaper to do the drive to Brisbane. However you dont pay when you have the blood taken you await a bill and mine never got sent out so maybe its the luck of yhe draw.
There is no affiliated blood taking places in WA for QFg. So basically Day 2 bloods can be marked as bulk billed and day 2 scan can get the rebate as at that stage u haven't officially started yr global Ivf cycle for Medicare purposes. Dr will probably tell u to call the next day.. Day 2 as with the time difference you do not get results thru till late in arvo. For day 12 scans and bloods.. As cycle has started.. U will have to fully pay for these.. Or fly over to brissy as pickup could be close to this date anyway. I had day 2 stuff here and flew over day 11 on all cycles as it saved over about $250 in getting waz and Qfg to do bloods. Hope this helps. @Muchulu1
