We've done the whole IVF/ICSI process for years which finally resulted in the birth my beautiful DD just over 2 years ago. We are about to embark on this journey again soon to try for #2 as my miracle natural conception after birth we had hoped for didn't happen sad.gif We did most cycles in Sydney & the last one resulting in DD was done on the sunshine coast, we have recently moved to south Brisbane & needing some recommendations for clinics in the area including the gold coast. I've looked at a couple online & have noticed alot of clinics now provide the no upfront payment (upon egg collection payment) since the change with Medicare. Could someone who has done it please explain how exactly it works? Do u pay extra for the doctors fee, drugs & any extra hidden fees? How much do u pay for egg collection without PHI as we dropped it after having DD due financial restraints & felt we only used it for that so really didnt see the need to continue it. Qld clinics seem to be very different to the one we used in Sydney as everything but the egg collection fee was included in the upfront fee but when using the SC clinic we ended up with ALL these extra fees we didn't know about. We were not happy cause we ended up paying twice what we did in Sydney in the end.
Sorry for the long rang just wanting as much info as u can provide as I want to be 100% ready this time and know what we are going to be spending as money is much tighter these days.

TIA ladies.
