    Default Which IVF clinic in Australia has the best lab?

    I have a lot of fertility issues that are being dealt with ( such as immune issues) and at this point I just need the best lab in Australia. I’m going to bank embryos and after I have 12 I’ll start transferring them. I have one child from ivf and I just didn’t a transfer in December that resulted in a chemical pregnancy. I have two more frozen, but if I get pregnant from those my eggs will be two years older at least when I’m ready to cycle again and I’m just over IVF after 5 cycles. I’d rather do if while I’m still relatively young.

    What are the facts on the ivf clinics here? Which ones statistically have the best labs, not just opening?

    Thank you in advance.

    Check out Genea CBD (Sydney). We changed over from Monash IVF Bondi and it was the best decision. We needed the best technology for our situation and I fell pregnant on our first cycle with Genea.

    I did a lot of research and from word of mouth and it seems Genea has the highest success rates, probably in Australia. It’s probably the most expensive clinic compared to all the others but for us, success rates were more important.

    Yep I second Genea. We are patients there and are now pregnant from our third FET after endometriosis was discovered after the second failed FET. We had 8 embryos (from 15) make it to day 5/6 and 4 tested normal using PGD. It seems like their labs are the most high tech.

    They are great aren’t they? Couldn’t really fault them. Nurses were lovely and absolutely loved our FS.

    Our first cycle at Monash IVF Bondi yielded 11 mature eggs, 8 fertilised and only 2 very poor quality early blastocysts at the end (no hint to implantation).

    Second cycle at Genea got 8 mature eggs, all fertilised - 100% (using PICSI) and 4 hatching blasts on day 5. They could PGS test 3 of them and all came back normal. Unbelievable results. And we made no change to my protocol except I was bumped up slightly from 150iu to 175iu.

    Got preg on our first FET with Genea. Well worth the extra money for us.

    Did they do anything to address your endometriosis? I have immune implantation dysfunctional but am able to get pregnant with immune treatments. I heard they don’t “believe” in immune infertility at Genea. Which is ridiculous because any doctor in any area of medicine should know well and good that the immune system effects everything in the body. Just like it can reject a kidney transplant it can also reject a baby. Anything foreign really. In the end it doesn’t matter because I’m being treated elsewhere for my immune issues. I’m just curious.

    We only discovered I had endometriosis after we had two failed FETs of PGS tested embryos so they cut out the endo during the surgery to investigate. I’m now pregnant (only 5 weeks) with the first embryo after that surgery.

    It is true that some of the fertility specialist don’t believe in immune issues, mine is one of them, not sure if that’s like a company policy or not though. If this FET didn’t work I was going to see Dr. M on the side.

    I’ve read somewhere Dr Alison Gee works with patients going through immune issues? I don’t think my FS believes in either.

    FYI

    I think Alison Gee also works out of the RPA fertility unit.

    It’s just absolutely preposterous to me for any doctor, fertility specialist or not, to not recognize that the immune system is the bodies gate keeper. It’s common sense. Im not a doctor and even before I discovered my immune infertility issues, I knew the immune system plays a roll in everything. It’s simply in poor taste, and unprofessional to discredit a field of medicine they know nothing about or don’t understand. A lot of reproductive endocrinologist in the USA use to be like that too, but they all started coming around within the last 5 years or so.

    I guess that's the hard thing about IVF as well, finding the right specialist. We initially were 'whatever' about picking one, but after our first failed cycle I was determined to find someone who specialised in male infertility.

    It's such an expensive process to 'interview' different FS but perhaps if you hop on the Genea website and go through the specialists and find reviews on them? I think with ours, I contacted the Genea Fertility adviser and looked for specific ones close to my area and specialised in dealing with MFI. Then they gave me a name and I started some research.

    I don't think all FS's may have the same views as mine, so hopefully you can find the right one for you. Good luck whatever you decide, and as one of the previous posters mentioned, you could see Dr M on the side (he seems to be very recommended across all the forums for immune issues).
