    Hi ladies . I've just been catching up and it's very busy in here!

    @Charlie74 I wouldn't worry, he likes to be called Wazza or Warren. He doesn't like being called Doctor... He told us to call him Wazza, quack or sh*thead, but not Doctor. I know you are a nurse, but I expect you'll find he is not like any other doctor you've met! I'm very excited for you that your time has come to see him.

    Hi,

    Hope I am doing this right this is the first forum I have joined and I hope I can join the over 40's thread. My names is Jo and we are starting IVF well hopefully starting a cycle soon. We have undergone multiple tests including genetic tests through MYIVF but after 6 months of tests etc... have been told we do not fit their parameters my partners sperm count is too low so have been referred to their sister clinic Monash IVF.

    The question I have which I hope is okay to ask is how much does it cost on average to do a cycle at other clinics as one cycle at Monash will be approx. $9000 out of pocket without the safety net rebate - will have to ring Medicare to find out how much more we get back. Just feeling disappointed as MYIVF was going to be about half this out of pocket without the safety net rebate. We would not put a price on having a baby but we could do 2 cycles at MYIVF for the cost of one at Monash. So far the only issues we have are the sperm count and motility and my age, everything else is good .

    We just want to start but want to find the best fit for us.

    Thanks

    Jo

    Sorry, I'm intrigued... Does wazza recommend the icing thingie only for male factor or for every guys regardless?

    And since sperm is renewing every 10 weeks, I'm assuming that the min of time they shld be doing it?

    Welcome @Spazzyp and @Dotty27 :-) these lasies are all lovely and we can all help you with all the questions and crazy emotional stuff. Feel free to ask anything, i reckon.
    @Maxwellsmum and @Billie2 yes, i too was so naive. Thought id be thinking about going back for my 2nd own egg baby by now. But i dont think naive is the same as stupid. In my town of like, 7000 people i have 1 friend who has 2 kids from 1 round of ivf and another friend with 2 kids from 1 cycle and EIGHT embys still in the freezer. That was all i knew about real life people who'd done ivf, so i figured my experience would be similar. IVF does work for ao many people, which is what makes it so hard to accept that its not gonna be that easy for you. And for me personally, starting ivf at 34 my fs said my prospects were pretty good. I remember asking the nurse if peopke end up walking away without a baby and she said "not many people end up like that". Little did i know that i would be one of those few ladies 2 years later. xox
