    I'm wih QFG too and I always got back about 60% of the actual IVF cost so if usually be out of pocket about $3.5k. Have you registered for the Medicare safety net? I don't get why your gap is so huge.

    Yep definitely registered for the safety net, because it's cost a lot more I'm having to pay the gap payment and I asked how much we get back and they said $1800 only after the embryo has been transferred. I don't have private health insurance so I have the day fees which are expensive but that's through Buderim private hospital and not through qfg.

    I did 5 cycles to get DD. MFI for us.

    - First cycle cancelled due to missed ovulation
    - Second cycle, ICSI, 2 eggs but only 1 embryo, BFN
    - Third cycle same as above
    - Fourth cycle (new specialist) cancelled due to almost non existent sperm
    - Fifth cycle (another new specialist), ICSI, first time using donor sperm, 19 eggs, about 14 fertilised, 7 embryos. 2 put back fresh resulting in DD and 5 frozen.

    In the midst of my first FET now so hopefully baby #2 is first try.

    Four stim cycles plus two frozen cycles have left me $40,000 out of pocket. I got pregnant but lost my twins. So I guess only technically successful...

    Oh my god!!! How awful to go through all of that. You've been trying almost 20 years!! Is there any reason why so bio pregnancies or miscarriages? I'm so sorry this has happened to you
