@Tinachris you can theoretically use any clinic for a de cycle but its also about making things as easy as possible for your donor, especially if she has kids and where she is located. you also pay for all costs associated with using her, so flights, sick days, accom, petrol, parking, childcare - anything that she would be out of pocket for because of the cycle
Thanks @Blossom and yes you are nearing your time! Its going to be a landslide of activity on here. I could be with you in October with FET.. Who knows!
Ive already done a nervous today.
Im starting to cheer up.
@pingc383 at my clinic if your doing a natural non medicated fet, then you wouldn't be on progesterone unless of course you've had history of miscarriages. I've had to do medicated fets as my progesterone is always so low.
@bib when your next updating the roll call could you put me down for a stim cycle OE in Sept please. Ta
@Maxwellsmum hope hubby is feeling better.
Talking of usernames and assumptions we make about them. I have always thought @Tinachris was very unusual username, as I thought of it as a shortened version of cantankerous and not Tina and Chris
Hi hon, that would be all inclusive OOP expenses. So cycle ($15,500), flights from Victoria to QLD and return, car hire, meds for me and my donor, and TESA for the husband We will get a chunk back from medicare after all that, but I basically need roughly $21K up front to get the wheels in motion. I reckon we'll be around $15K OOP once all is done and dusted. If we lived in the same state you could knock $2K off that as well.
We did change clinics too. We had to in the end because my clinic was in NSW and my donor had already exceeded her family limit there. We are going to use her preferred clinic up in QLD now
ETA: That cycle cost also includes my first transfer and all hospital/anaesthetist fees as well.
Yeah. After last time, when I'd pleaded for it. After last time when I MC'd.
I wish I had pushed harder. Do yourself a favour and don't take no for an answer hon
