    @tuxcat funny you ask, I looked it up again myself a few weeks back:-


    initial consult $350?
    genea cycle $5000 oop
    theatre costs $1500?
    counseling $650
    donor expenses $1500

    = $9000

    PLUS

    blood tests for donor $500
    Intralipids $700
    Biopsy $250
    FET x 3 $7500?
    PGD testing $2500? capped (or 700? each)
    embryo freezing $300

    = $11,750

    TOTAL $20,750

    "
    That's not including all the meds and precriptions too, depends on the meds but that could add a few hundred *shudder* I was initially budgeting for 10K too but it blew out (obviously).
    Please triple check the costs with genea though (especially the FETs) as I was half in denial and just paying things then trying my best to forget about it. Also the medicare rebates on the cycles and FETs confused my memory of costings a bit."

    @Bongley awesome thanks!!! Do you know about the hospital cover question? Is it whether the donor has cover or if you do for her egg pickup?

    Hi ladies

    I have a question for any experienced IVFers. Is it possible for an early stage blastocyst to de-evolve overnight back to a compacting embryo?? I've just been told this happened to my embryo. Yesterday it was an early blast I was told by one lab technician. Today she says its not and its a compacting embryo so somehow it's gone backwards in development. I'm very sceptical and I'm concerned as the lab have given us a huge cause for concerns in the past.

    Would really appreciate your knowledge on this.

    Thanks

    Ps I'm writing to complain as there were other discrepancies in the results. Told I had a 4AA blast by one technician then today a different technician told me it was a 3AA yesterday.

    Never heard of it reversing, just slowing and stopping 🤔Sounds to me like they are lacking consistency with their grading, and considering they do grading everyday I find that prospect very concerning.

    thanks @tuxcat & Bongley that's really useful. and expensive! ouch

    I'm not sure @Apples1234 - I haven't heard of that happening. but I can't remember what the #cells difference is between those two stages. I thought the blast was when there's the outer cells & inner mass and some liquid/space between them for some/most of the internal diameter. I didn't realise they could lose some space/go back to compacted. perhaps they made a mistake and were looking at another embryo during one of the calls?

And I remember during it feeling like backhanding her whilst I was lying there and hearing her tell me people who sit down for work have very tight muscles around the butt legs/lower back region. Yes I thought, it was like she was punishing me for that fact!!!

    I can give you her number if you like
    I do like the sounds of that. I've ended up with bruising a few days later. I must like pain
    I do enjoy deep tissue

    An embryo's development won't go backwards Luv. It can and will arrest and go no further or it will slow down, but it won't go backwards.

    I'm a bit confused. Did the technician today say your blasty was a 4AA and a different technician yesterday say it was a 3AA?? The TE/ICM grades haven't changed and are still AA which is the best of the best, only the expansion grade is in question.

    Hmmmm.....will give an opinion on that when you clarify for me

    @Blossom74 Your absence today has been duly noted Luv.

    Perhaps you're just super busy, but if it's because you're having a tough day then here's a for you.
