    Thank you for all the ladies who started and replied to this thread.

    I've only just stumbled across this while researching Primary IVF. We have an apptment with them this Thursday hoping the ball will start rolling soon.

    Just wondering how the ladies who got their BFP are doing? - Irinko, Sydma, FemFroggy?

    @tjuls goodluck. Im in tomorrow (wed) to hear our plan & hoping to start next cycle in Nov. Im a fussy Dr person and at Primary every encounter Ive had is with females. Female GP, female sonographer for my scans, and our Specialist (Ob/Gyn) we see tomorrow is a female. Its been good through all testing. Now Im excited for every step. Best wishes for thurs.

    Thanks @ Billie2. Sounds like ur experience at Primary IVF with most female docs and nurses is good so far. I've always had male docs (ob/gyn) so it would be nice to speak to a female doc for a change. I hope ur treatment plan is smooth and good luck with apptment today!

    Hi Ladies!
    just want to contribute with my experience with Primary IVF and hopefully get some support too.
    So far, we had the 2 GP appointments, all the exams done and a double consultation with the specialist. Everything was really well organized and smooth, from the quick appointments to all the tests we went through. The GP wasn't the most empathic person, but it was quite irrelevant at that stage. We saw a woman Dr and she was supportive and human..especially when my partner's sperm test came back as a disaster! We didn't expect him to have azoospermia, but the Dr reassured us and suggested a second sperm test to double check. Turned out that the 1st one was probably wrong and, although not fantastic, at least he doesn't need an aspiration...you cannot imagine my relieve!! They freezed them straight away as a back up in case on the day the quality isn't good. Also for this, the Dr has been caring and spent time discussing the best options for us.
    Today we filled in all the papers to move on with ICSI..unluckily my cycle is already started, therefore we'll begin in December.
    So far, we didn't have to pay anything, except for 2 specific blood tests, which were around $100.
    Next step is the appointment with a nurse in 2 week, when she'll explain the procedure in detail and how to handle the injections.
    I'm as excited as scared..I'm sure that some of you have gone through the same feelings and can understand this!
    Look forward to hearing your experiences and if someone is starting in December as well! good luck to all of you!

    DanyMatthew, thank you for sharing. We were there too today! We met FS and were done in 10mins. We are a no questions couple with limited time & always rushing. Im booked for nurse Tues week and Im clockwork, so we roll 16Nov day 1, according to my app. Thank goodness I short cycle, only benefit there is! I have many friends and family who have been through IVF, but when its your time its exciting but Im trying be calm. We are 'unexplained' despite being male factor. Im a bit concerned we're not doing ICSI but Im no expert.

    Hope this thread keeps going. Feel better knowing others sit in those seats overlooking a foodcourt middle of Sydney!

    Hi ladies,
    Wishing you all the luck in the world!

    I’m also continuing with Primary, had my crio transfer yesterday, and so my TWW started…

    (I probably did not update here, I had a MMC at 6 weeks last time, and all was finished for me in early September, then my next cycle started in early Oct, and I’ve started another IVF cycle.)


    From my observation, Primary is getting better over time, dealing great with an increased ****** of patients – this time I did not have a separate appointment with nurse before the cycle – just saw the FS, signed the consent with her and then all cycle explanation and schedule was sent us via mail. I love the sms-phone system they have and minimized appointments, and also the early-morning scans which means you don’t have to take a lot of time off…

    I have a hormone-supported frozen cycle this time, which means stuffing myself with estrogene and progesterone from both ends – and ladies, I have to say if you will think Crinone gel is a nightmare when you start it – it is not! I have progesterone pessaries now instead of Crinone, and that’s what a nightmare is!

    (But everything I can do to have the right result is good, no complaints from me

    Im having a bit of a panic about retrieval. Ive never had surgery or been under before. I had my son in 2007 and no drugs there either. What is it like???

    It's fine it's really nothing to be scared of. It's like a slightly more involved Pap smear. I was awake for mine. Good luck

    Hi ladies,

    So we had our first apptment at Primary yesterday and @Billie2, you are right about sitting in the waiting area above a food court! Very awkward, since you can people eat while they watch you wait for IVF..haha
    @Danymatthew- you werent kidding about the the GP being not very empathic. I had Dr Lenehan and she was very non-chalant during our visit, very matter of fact. I guess its only the first visit, lets hope Dr McDonald or Dr Lukic is alot better.

    For those considering Primary IVF- our first visit was very quick- 15 mins I think, doc took down some notes about me and hubby, gave us some blood tests to be done. Since I'm on CD14 and about to ovulate, we'll have to wait til 25th Nov for the 2nd apptment when all the cd2-5 and cd21 bloods results come back. Which means we probably wont be able to start the process until early Dec or Jan
    @Irinko- I'm sorry to hear about ur MC. Hope this cycle lil bean holds on tighter. I've been reading up on the ladies on the IVF-FET Nov/Dec thread and some of them needed to be on Prog pessaries and man it doesnt sound like fun at all! I'm really hoping I dont need that, however, if thats all it takes for us to get a bfp-- I'll take it!

    Wishing everyone

    Hello everyone . I just found this thread as I will be going through Primary IVF in Melbourne as its opening here next month. I thought that this would be a good place for support and advice.

    Cheers and baby dust to all
