    Thanks everyone for posting about the cost of cycles. I was expecting about 10k oop for an oe stim cycle with Pgd but I must have added things wrong. Unless costs have increased considerably since the ones you're quoting or don't include Pgd?

    @Caesardust At Monash. A guide...(they may not add up perfectly!!)

    1. 1st stage when collecting meds $7,281
    2. 2nd stage $3459
    Total: $10,740

    Medicare rebate $5254
    OOP $4775

    Add:
    PGS: Around $700 per embryo but they used to make you pay an upfront deposit of about $2,000.
    HA for ICSI: $400
    Donor sperm: $710

    If the cycle is cancelled prior to EPU it costs $938
    Medicare rebate: $467
    OOP: $500-ish

    I hope this helps, xx.

    @Blossom74 So I guess if you take out PGD and intralipids then it puts it down a few thou. Scary isn't it. I think we are going to either pay for the donor to have her cycle at GENEA and then transfer any embryos to RPA or just do the whole thing st RPA which means waiting 3 months quarantine period, not ideal but none of this is! Unless my mum steps in and gives us lots of money, which is possible. it's so sh/t that all this costs so bloody much,I too am in the 40 mill lotto so will help you out if we win! Don't hold your breath tho!!

    thanks @Blossom74. yes I think it will take a while. I feel like having a few days prior helped prepare me a bit and has spread out the tears. I read some of the docs on the Sands website so they were helpful. I'll try to speak to the counselor after Easter when things have calmed a bit.

    Wow the cost of the local donor is way more than I thought. When we looked at the US we thought $20,000 was expensive but figured the 90% success rate was worth it. I always figured at home would be waaay cheaper.
    Just another slap in the face for those needing fertility assistance.

    I agree with you @Blossom74: Thank God for medicare BUT it doesn't go far enough. That's just an unrealistic amount of money for lots of people. I am upset for those who have to give up a beautiful dream because they ran out of money.

    Blossom I know this is your last shot. Please do everything you can to get a great donor. I don't want you to be unsuccessful and have to give up.

    That goes for the rest of you ladies too!

    Sounds about the same as me. I've been on it for seven days now.
    My issue was picked up from my pictures of my laproscopy.. Something about the scaring. Maybe a pelvic issue? Not sure what he said tbh. I was just shocked. DH and I have both have to take it too
