Any Aussie ladies starting IVF?


Hey ladies,

Just wondering if there was any Aussie girls out there starting IVF in the next few months?
My husband and I are probably starting IVF through Monash in May/June.....
Anyone have some success stories?

Me- 28 and healthy
DH-29 low morphology and marginal motility

Love to hear from anyone!

Hi Wishandwait,

I have just been through IVF in Oz (through IVF Australia) and I wanted to wish you all the very best of luck as there doesn't seem to be that many Aussies on here. Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi! Thanks for the reply and congrats on your bfp!!! H & H nine months! I looked at ivf Australia and they seemed great! They were cheaper than Monash too but we live in rural Victoria so our options were limited. How long were you ttc for before you decided to go ahead with ivf if you don't mind me asking?

After only 9 months TTC we did an IUI and I had a laparoscopy. Once blood tests revealed that I had a really low AMH level, we decided to move straight on to IVF#1 after only 11 months TTC.

I hope you conceive on your first try!

Thank you I hope so too! We've been ttc/ntnp for over two years. DH is sub-fertile so they think our chances are good with ivf! I'm doing IUI this month as I've just had a lap...hoping to start ASAP after that! I hope it doesn't take too long!

Hi Wish! So nice to see another Aussie on here. We've done 2 ICSI (we have severe male factor) cycles so far, one fresh & one frozen. I'll hopefully be cycling again in June. But at the moment we're just waiting to find out if DH has testicular cancer, which could mean no more cycles for us. However I'm happy to keep you company while you cycle. I notice you have Male Factor too; will you be doing ICSI? I hear Monash is really good. We're going through Genea (used to be called Sydney IVF), they're bloody expensive, but great. In terms of success, we were very lucky to fall pregnant 1st cycle, but then miscarried at 6 weeks. Loads of baby dust your way xx

Hi! Thanks for the reply! Sorry to hear about your DH, I really hope they find nothing so you guys can cycle again in June. We will be doing ICSI too. I've just got a bfn from a cycle of IUI so ill be calling Dr tomorrow to start asap. Did you have to start with the birth control pill? Hoping I may not have to as i'm pretty regular.
When do you find out about your husband? xx

Hiya, I had 3 IVF cycles at Melbourne IVF and all failed sadly. I have low AMH but on my first cycle after my last failed IVF cycle I got a natural BFP We're still in shock tbh but I hope you get your BFP first time if there's anything I can help with just let me know. There's not many aussies on here but there are few kicking around

Hi Girls,

I have just started with IVF Australia in Sydney ( Bondi J), this is my first cycle so nervous, positive and all else rolled into one. So far they seem good, although am only on day 6 of Gonal F at this stage.
Good luck to you all, good to hear the postives. Crystal am pleased for you and i don't even know you
Wish and wait i hope you get wonderful news on all aspects very soon.
We have been ttc for 1 year and 3 months, have amh of 1.1 and hubby has slightly below average morphology.
xx

Thanks my AMH was 6.7 in Dec but for some reason nothing would fertilise and FS couldn't figure out why, my AMH is low but something should have fertilised. I only got 3 eggs each time too but that's not horrible that's average for low AMH. I'm currently 37 and have a daughter 15 and a son 14, we've been trying since our son to have #3. Still not sure the why's and why not's but we got there in the end
