    Hi Phee,


    Thank you, it will be good to get a non Monash FS opinion of our issues. It will be worth the wait. I've heard so many good reports. We also think it will help us make the transition to DE, if that is what we need to do.

    Plus we are turning the trip into a long weekend so it will be a nice break.


    Good luck for your cycle.

    Yes Wazza is lovely, nice, and funny and seems honest. But is he getting sloppy? I have had two failed IVF cycles with him.

    3 years at another clinic with the best of the best in Melbourne and Wazza is still the only one that ever got me a BFP

    I'm sorry to hear you've not had a sticky BFP as yet but I personally wouldn't question Wazza's ability for success. Nor would I question his honesty - if he doesn't think he can help someone, he lets them know! Keep the faith and all the best

    I'm sorry to hear that. It's heartbreaking getting that bfn after ivf. Without knowing your exact issues and treatment plan it's a bit hard to say if Wazza has been "sloppy" or if perhaps there isn't a lot he can he do? I mean that in the kindest way.

    Wazza told me straight that he couldn't help me with "my own material"... We gave a go and he was right. He did get me over the line with my sisters eggs, like I said the only one do far. He will tell you when you are over. If not then keep cycling. Two failed attempts is not a lot in the Ivf world.

    Just thought I would pop in and update on my progress since I first posted in here mid last year.

    At the time I was in the throes of my 4th consecutive loss and it was such a horrible time for me. Through research and word of mouth I had come to learn about Dr Warren. I was sooooo lucky that the moment I called his rooms, knowing it would most likely be a long wait to see him, there was a cancellation and I got in to see him THAT Day. It was a miracle and I can tell you we have not looked back.

    I did everything Warren told/suggested to me, from further testing to extra procedures to up our chance. After being told to go away and keep trying by other Dr's it was amazing to have Warren on our side and actively helping us!

    And so, I am now 21 weeks pregnant with a perfectly healthy little boy and I feel I owe it all to my unrelenting perseverance and Wazza!

    This pregnancy hasn't been all smooth sailing. I've had many bleeds, weeks of strict bed rest, so many meds and injections I thought I would burst and have been diagnosed with Hyperemesis Gravidarum, but I felt so reassured by Wazzas care that I've managed somehow.

    I remember what it was like to be on the other side of this for many years. I still find it hard to believe and accept that I have a healthy, kicking baby inside me and I don't think I will really allow myself to accept this until baby is safely in my arms.

    Anyway, I wish everyone many blessings and I pray your journey to holding your bubs is a short one

    I'm sorry to read that you've experienced two failed cycles, it's never easy and feels like a real kick in the guts, I know. In saying that, I feel it's a little unfair to accuse WDA of being "sloppy" because of it. For some reason, I feel a bit offended on his behalf reading your post.

    I've had 2 Cycles myself with him (after 3 with my previous FS) and the sole reason I went to him was because all of my research to find whom I considered the best possible FS for our particular issues (especially my age) all pointed to him. He is one of the best FS's not only in Brisbane/QLD, but also in this country in my opinion and I knew the best possible chance we'd have of achieving a BFP was with him.

    At no stage did I "assume" I'd get a BFP and nor did he promise that to me either. NO FS can promise any of their patients 100% that they will get them a BFP and WDA is no different. At the end of the day, he's not some kind of "Fertility God" with supernatural powers!! But he is a very, very experienced, clever, kind etc, etc and most importantly, honest man who will tell you what he can and can't do for you and how it is. If he thinks it's an embryo quality problem (like he told us), he'll tell you, if he thinks you need to go down the donor egg/sperm route, he'll tell you, if he thinks he either can/can't help, he'll tell you and if he thinks you're at the end of the road and there's nothing more to be done, he'll tell you that too and so on and so forth.

    Look, I don't know you're history as you haven't provided it in a signature, so don't know how many Cycles or more importantly, transfers you've had, but if it is only 2 transfers, as Lilypily said, that's stuff all in this IVF caper. I wish you the best of luck in the future and if for whatever reason you feel you've lost confidence with WDA, you can always go to someone else though I doubt you'd find much better. Good Luck to you
