    @Blinky76 It has been a great experience, not without its hiccups let me tell you... but I'm glad I was at home to deal with those hiccups and more poor Donor Angel has had it a little rough the last couple of days, but I know that Warren has been looking after her and is in good hands.

    I know I'm lucky to be in the position I'm in to be able to afford to do it this way also. Travelling O/S to ANY of the clinics (and to go back for an FET) is still way cheaper and you get to have an nice O/S holiday. But the travelling wasn't an option for us and thankfully as my DP works away we can afford to do it here. I think there needs to be a more affordable option to stay home and use this process. I'm not saying 'free for everyone', but just make it possible for EVERYONE to become parents if they want.

    @ECM1981sirry if you've mentioned it but how much was the pgd? And how long does it take?
    Thanks

    Quick question...has any-one paid for a private lining and follicle scan and paid less than $165 (no Medicare rebate)?

    @emski72 I think the PGD is about $3k and you get the result the next day, so you know which embryos to transfer on day 6. Amazing!! I just wish it wasn't so expensive. I thought it was going to be more affordable than here in Oz. No gender selection allowed.
    It's interesting you've asked the question ( )....are you starting to gear up for another cycle? Is your DD's ED available for the later part of this year?
    @ECM1981 So all going well, a DET around 15th June? Thanks to your hard work, you have EVERYTHING working in your favour this time.

    Maybe... the topic came up a few times while we were away on holidays last week. We've only just paid off the last cycle with my last pay! I have no idea if she's still donating or not... I'd have to check with the agency, I did have a sneaky peek and she wasn't currently listed on their site. I might touch base with them in a few weeks and see if she is at least interested. I also can't do anything until Jan (still on the weightloss bandwagon and need a full 12 months recovering from that surgery) we could certainly do a freeze all pgd cycle though towards the end of this year and me fly over for a 4 day trip to minimise costs... I'm just thinking out loud at this stage though and trying to add things up in my head. What are the success rates with transferring a PGD 'normal' embryo? Anyone know?
    When you look at the 3k for PGD though (although a whopping upfront cost) it saves you doing repeat trips for embryos that were never going to do anything right? or am I missing something? My FET trip last year cost us about $4-5k all up with accommodation/flights/spending... this would be our last ever go and then, only with E's donor, I have no interest in using any other donor at this stage.

    Argh I contemplated making an appointment with LB in about 3 months as a 'just in case' appt... I can always cancel it can't I?

    Hi @emski72 yes its about 3k. I can email you the forms they sent me if you like? Just pm your email address. Im doing it because like you said its a bit of extra comfort in knowing the embryos you transfer have been looked at and deemed chromosome perfect which will hopefully lead to more chance of a bfp.
    Yep @Tahli fingers crossed. There is not much more i can add or do at this stage! Im starting my diabex/metformin tonight and im scared. Any tips from you tahli or anyone else that has taken it? Take it at dinner?

    Zoladex is a restricted benefit so GP not really supposed to write it.
    This is the official PBS just read the highlighted in red

    I guess that they could but would then be non PBS and more $$
    As for giving the injection, anyone who has given it before and has good technique! Otherwise it is painful

    ECM1981 I will be there the same time 6th June - 18th June. I have my first lining scan on 6th June with transfer scheduled for around 13th June.

    Just organizing my medication with Repromed here in Adelaide as I wanted to keep my current doctor involved. She understand all of my issues and has a few suggestions for medication as I have high ANAs and has suggested a blood thinner too due to the high estrogen as it can cause clots so just a s a precaution.

    Need to find a count down to add to my profile until we go
