    @Billie2 I'll come drink with you then but only if we do it on a park bench with our bottles still in a brown paper bag, coz otherwise i feel we'd be too pretentious. I'll bring the newspapers to cover ourselves with for when we pass out.

    Yep. Medicare and IVF are confusing. As well as the safety net varying, a few IVF items are also capped - like cycle management fees.

    I'd try to do as much as you can in one calendar year, so if you cannot do a couple of cycles this year, maybe wait? Good if you can start any supplements ASAP.

My local regular pub ran out of it one day, on the afternoon of the last day of school for the year!!! I walked up to the bar and the publican and other bar guy were having a huddled, hush hush convo, which afterwards they told me it was about which one of them was going to tell me they'd run out. Bar guy looked at me and ran out the door. Publican said, "can you just wait a few minutes?" I was like, "sigh... i suppose so but it is 3:30pm last day of school mate". Bar guy comes running back in with a bottle of turkey 5 mins later. He ran to the bottlo down the street and they happily served it to me in highly overpriced 30ml portions for the rest of the afternoon (i lie- until 2am when they kicked me out).
    God this reminded me of myself a few years ago! I'm glad there are others out there like me!

    My drink of choice is spiced rum, can't find it everywhere but mixed with ginger beer, yummo. Or anejo tequila with lime and lemonade.

    Actually I went to a hens on sat nite - good thing I'm only a one drink girl now - $16 for one drink

    Ooh, dont get me started mate. Last year for Christmas i made everyone in my staffroom a card, wishing them a happy festivus and telling them a donation had been made in their name to 'the human fund- money for people'. And i have a 'muffin top store' t shirt which has the shops logo and 'top of the muffin to you!' written on it from this cool website that makes fake advertisement t shirts for tv show related items. Oh, and i made my best mate named bobby, who also loves seinfeld a macaroni-bobby statue for his birthday, like kramer made for jerry and bette midler. I was making it out of pasta and super glue and was at a tricky stage, had my hands full, so i was used my mouth to unscrew the lid from the super glue. Except the lid was already off the superglue so when i bit down on the tube, superglue flowed into my mouth. I ran to the sink to spit it out and briefly considered whether i should gargle acetone nail polish remover. But decided that was even stupider than biting down on a tube of super glue. Luckily i didnt glue my lips and tongue to my teeth but i couldnt actually get dental floss to slide between my front teeth for about a month. I am not making this s h i t up.

    I know I'm late to the party but the one thing (ok two) that I wish I could tell myself four years ago was to read Dr Beer's book - is my body baby friendly. It explained auto immune issues and how it can affect fertility, which led me to get testing and Dr Matthias.

    The second thing is to do pgd testing on any day 5 embies before transferring - I could have saved so much $$ and heartache. Good looking blastocysts might still be abnormal.

    Good luck xx

    Hi all, I'm new to this thread and even though I'm not 40 yet, I hope I can still post here.
    I have a history of recurrent miscarriages (5) with no live births. One of these was via IVF and it was a PGDed embryo. I've since has further testing via Dr Braverman in the US which revealed some immune issues. I'm currently cycling with Monash in Melbourne and my EPU is in Thursday.
    Just wanted to ask if any of you here have had counselling from Monash and what was your experience? Did your DP/DH also go along? I'm at breaking point at the moment (it's probably all the injections) but I was going well so far. Do you know if I can speak to someone over the phone before I do something silly? I'll call Monash in the morning to check anyway. I was going so strong until now. Hating all this as its just not me!

    @Mongol I haven't been to any counselling at Monash but I do know they offer it. It might not be as quick as you need it though. I would recommend getting into your gp first thing this morning and asking for a mental health plan. This means you can go see a host of psychologists at a discounted price. Your gp might even be able to recommend someone who has some experience surrounding infertility or you can ask the receptionists at any of the psychologists you call if they have anyone with infertility experience. It really is such a hard and sad time to be going through all this especially if you're alone. There's no shame in calling out for help whether it be on here or by seeing a psychologist to help you get through it. Please check in with us after you've made some calls this morning. We're always here xox
