What’s the process for booking an appointment?
One of our experienced fertility nurses will contact you and answer any questions you may have. They will help you choose the best doctor for you and make an appointment at one of our convenient locations.
Does an initial appointment mean I’m committed to IVF?
Not at all! There are many different and non-invasive treatment options that your fertility specialist can discuss with you, including ovulation induction, timed intercourse and artificial insemination. You may not even need to come back and see us again at all.
Which doctor will I see?
Ultimately, the choice is yours! However, if you’re unsure who to see, our fertility nurses will help determine the most appropriate fertility specialist for you, taking into account your personal circumstances.
I’m concerned about the cost of IVF
We understand that sometimes the cost of IVF can be confusing and that each patient has individual circumstances and treatment needs. That’s why we have trained fertility nurses and admin staff who can provide you with accurate cost information so you’re always informed before moving forward.
I’m feeling scared and embarrassed
Please remember – you’re not alone! Taking the first step to make an enquiry is always the hardest, but we promise that once you speak to a fertility nurse, you’ll walk away feeling confident about your next steps.
What’s the difference between Monash IVF and the other clinics?
We’re one of the best-known fertility treatment options in Australia because we offer patients the best of both worlds – personal care and access to world-class fertility treatment. We promise that once you’ve spoken to Nurse Jo and her team – you know you’ve made the right decision.
How much does an initial consultation cost?
Initial consultation fees do vary slightly from specialist to specialist. Before making an appointment, our fertility nurses will make sure you know the cost. You’ll also receive approximately $76 back from Medicare with a valid referral letter from your GP.
What do I need to do before I see a fertility specialist?
You will need a referral letter by the time of your appointment, but it’s up to you whether you get this before or after you make your appointment. Sometimes your GP will complete some preliminary testing with you and you will need to bring those results along to your appointment. However, don’t worry if you haven’t completed any testing! Your fertility specialist can do it all with you.
Does my partner need to attend appointments too?
Ideally yes, but this may vary depending on the circumstance. It’s best to discuss your individual circumstances with our fertility nurses to find out more.
What happens in an appointment with a fertility specialist?
Your first appointment may involve things like discussing your medical history, any previous specialist consultations, referrals for some medical tests and talking through possible treatment options.
