    Default Perth IVF Clinics

    Hi

    I’m hoping someone can give me some information on clinics in Perth. I have unexplained fertility and have done numerous tests and mostly everything is fine. I had a laparoscopy last year and my FS did find some endo but seemed pretty positive after the procedure. I also have thyroid and iron deficiency issues but everything is under control but still nothing is happening. So now after three years, I’m ready to move onto the next step and look at IVF clinics, we are looking at Pivet, Concept and Hollywood, has anyone used them?

    Hi Margi8 I am in Perth and haven't used the clinics you mentioned but I have used fertility specialist wa (fswa) and I found them great. Everyone was really lovely and easy to deal with. I had Dr Yeap who was great but Dr Love did my transfer and is now my ob with the BFP I got. I also had unexplained fertility and to start with male issues (high sperm fragmentation) but with diet and menevit the sperm quality dramatically improved

    @Margi8 I was the same as @mish239 we went through FSWA. Dr Love was our FS and we also dealt with other drs there for egg collections and our transfer. They are all lovely. Dr Love was my OB too.

    I have thyroid issues, PCOS and a high iron disorder. Although our issue actually turned out to be DH's sperm and my eggs not wanting to talk to each other! We found that out after our first egg collection (we had no embryos to transfer) so used ICSI on our second round. I got pregnant from the first transfer from that round and we still have 2 embryos in the freezer

    Our baby is almost 16 weeks now

    Another vote for FSWA. Dr Perkins is my FS and he's great. It's such a nice clinic, they are so thorough and helpful!

    We used Pivet for our first IVF cycle and were happy with the service we received. They were very thorough with their testing in the initial tracking cycle and picked up on an immune issue which was managed during our first ICSI cycle and resulted in our DD. At the time we didn't consider this a big deal, but found out later that a lot of fertility specialists don't bother with that sort of testing until there's been multiple failed cycles or miscarriages, or they don't believe in immune issues at all! We changed clinics for future IVF cycles only because we moved house and we didn't have any frozen embryos, otherwise we would have been happy to go back.

    It has been almost 4 years since we were at Pivet so they may have changed their processes, but I liked how blood tests and ultrasounds were done at the same location by adding your name to the list when you arrived during testing times. Our other clinic only just started offering ultrasounds on site during our last cycle, and even then they were scheduled time slots often hours after the blood test window so I needed to take additional time out of work. Also, Pivet gave us the basic drugs for the cycle at the clinic, so you only needed to visit the chemist for "extras".

    Thanks mish239, FSWA seem to have great reviews so I'm going to look into them. I have been seeing my FS for the last year so I'm not sure if there's a certain clinic he wants to refer me to but I want to have my own research done so that I can ask him to change his referral if I'm not happy with it!

    Thats great HillDweller, congrats!
    My acupuncturist actually said the same thing to me, that it might be DH's sperm and my eggs just not getting together, its so annoying when its unexplained but hopefully we'll get some answers soon!

    Thats good to hear bubbletrouble, they are pretty close to where I work so it would work well for me if i go with them. Because I have thyroid issues, I definitely want a clinic that will monitor it because I heard the same as you, that some clinics don't believe in it at all which confuses me so much!

    Best of luck with everything!

    PS: My thyroid was monitored closely by my FS the whole way through, it's one of the standard tests they run at the very beginning at FSWA (actually my thyroid condition went away when I was pregnant and is still fine now!)
