    @Worryingalot81 sorry to hear if your bfn glad you've got something to look forward to with your 2 frosties! The very best of luck to you!!
    @LaDiDah we were at Melbourne too, we did one round of ICSI and were extremely lucky to get our BFP! Primary make IVF very achievable! Without it I'm not sure where we would be right now! Our costs were as follows...prices are ballpark, can't remember the exact figure on some things, but I'm only talking +\- a few dollars!

    $60 AMH blood test for me (only blood test that charged)
    $100 ($50 each for myself and DF) for mandatory counselling
    $150 stimming meds/crinone gel
    $600 day stay hospital fee

    That's it from memory!

    We can keep our one frostie on ice for one year no extra cost then it will be $600 per year until we decide to defrost!

    Hope that helps!

    @onedaymaybebaby that's a huge help thank you! Did you find the process happened quite quickly after you decided to go ahead or were there huge waiting lists?

    @LaDiDah I'm at Melbourne now! The waiting time for the doctor is around 2 weeks ( you need two appointments) the specialist wait is about 5 weeks (got this info today lol)

    Sorry to hear @Worryingalot81 and I do hope those frosties are your BFP next time
    @LaDiDah - what @onedaymaybebaby said is spot on! I am also with Primary in Preston, and I really don't think there were any other fees to consider. I was with Monash previously and they charged for EVERYTHING! The service with Primary is not as personal, but when you factor in the money, it's totally 100% worth it to give Primary a go. As an aside, we had 3 stim cycles, 1 fresh transfer and 2 frozen transfers with Monash and all BFNs. First stim cycle with fresh transfer with Primary and we finally got our BFP after 4 and a half years of trying! Could be that we did learn a lot through Monash which helped us inform our cycle with Primary, or it could be because the stress of the finances didn't weigh so heavily, but either way, I'd definitely give them a go!

    Just showed hubby this post and he's said to go for it. We've got a small amount of money saved but we would rather spend on something to help complete our family than be stuck in this limbo. I'm hoping because I'm unexplained that putting an embryo directly in will solve our issue.

    Oh wow the wait has increased since we were there @MrsSingh! I found the biggest hurdle was waiting for our Police checks to come back, average time is about 2-3weeks, unfortunately my DF has a fairly stock standard name which meant he got caught up with offenders of the same name in NSW and It took 7 weeks for them to work out he wasn't one of those offenders and he has a squeaky clean name! So frustrating! The best advice which you will probably find most of the girls on here give you is try to be as flexible as possible with appts, try to take whatever is going and that will definitely help you get through to stimming as quickly as possible

    I was very limited in my availability with my work schedule which totally slowed my process down, that in conjunction with the lengthy wait on police checks made it a long process for us. Our first GP appt was in mid dec last year and we started stimming in April! But as I say that was mostly due to my availability not the clinic!

    Woohoo @LaDiDah! At the very least you can go for an appt and find out if it's right for you! As @OneOfTheseDays just don't go in expecting a personalised experience, being that they are predominately bulk billed, they are so busy everything is rush rush, the receptionists/nurses in my experience often come across like everything is a hassle but I reckon they are so under the pump as they are crazy busy! If you can look past that you'll be fine, you're not there to make friends just keep your eye on the end goal

    Well we already have police checks and children checks cause we are both teachers so that should speed things along a little!

    Pretty sure they won't accept them and will make you do it again @LaDiDah . A couple that were at reception the same time as me one day we're talking to the receptionists about them being nurses and already both having police checks and working with children checks due to their job. They were told they'd have to apply for them again as with IVF you have to specify on the application forms that it's for IVF-no other reason (something to do with Vic legislation)! We had already done ours approx 6mths prior with another IVF clinic that we were originally going with but primary wouldn't even accept them, it's a pain in the bum!

    I hope all of you ladies know how wonderful and strong you are.
    My little update- I had my CD21 blood test yesterday morning.
    Last night, and now still, I started spotting tiny bits of really light brown discharge at least a week before my period is due. Strange if it is my period it should be more by now. So I'm assuming my CD21 day bloods will be the wrong timing. Time will tell I guess. ☺
