    Default Fertility Specialist- NSW

    Hi all,

    I'm on the TTC journey and am looking for a fertility specialist in NSW. We live in Castle Hill and would like to see someone close by. However, we wouldn't mind travelling if the specialist is really good.

    Would you recommend any fertility specialists nearby please? I look forward to your feedback.

    Thanks guys!!

    I highly recommend Dr Peter Benny at Next Generation Fertility in Parramatta. All the Drs there are great and the nursing staff are awesome. If you need any surgeries/egg collections done, they do it at castle hill day surgery.

    If your issue is endometriosis, Dr Liten (not sure on spelling) at Genea has a special interest, but they are very pricey and I've been told by a few people that he's not the nicest Dr around. He does have good success rates for women with endo though.

    If money is an issue you could also try Westmead Fertility.

    Hi Cue, Thank you for your reply. Have you been to any of the both dr you mentioned? Someone else strongly recommended dr lighten too, but I'm worried because my BMI is 30 and apparently he makes anyone with BMI over 25 lose weight before he treats them.Money is not an issue. I've heard too many complains about low cost fertility centres and do not want to risk spending triple at the end after endless tries.

    Default Fertility Specialist- NSW

    We did 3 rounds of IVF with Dr Benny, we fell pregnant on the third cycle and now have a 6mo DS (our issues make it difficult to get viable embryos, we used PICSI for fertilization). I really liked his approach and he's very caring. They are a moderately priced clinic and I found them very professional and supportive. Dr Matthews, also from Next Gen, did one of my egg collections and my OB thinks she is the best FS is Sydney.

    Dr Lighten can be picky from what I've heard. Apparently Genea only like taking on patients who have the best chance of success as it helps keep their success rates up, therefore justifying their costs. I think their fees are ridiculous.

    Getting your weight down a bit will probably make the process a bit easier on you and also help reduce risks in pregnancy, but definitely find an FS that you like & trust to discuss your options. I hate it when Drs get all high and mighty about things like weight, they should support you to be healthy rather than kick you out because of a number on the scales.
