Choosing an IVF Clinic in Melbourne isn’t always easy
Thousands of Australians have trouble conceiving.
Taking the first step in getting started is easy and begins with choosing an IVF fertility specialist.
This can be done in the privacy of your own home and can be based on a number of aspects such as location, wait time, family or friend recommendations or identifying with their profile. You can view all Monash IVF fertility doctor profiles here.
When you’ve chosen a specialist, you can make an appointment easily online or over the phone.
An important thing to note is that making an appointment doesn’t always mean you will need to complete IVF treatment. Our specialists are here to put your care first and may recommend a different treatment option.

The Process of IVF
Many of our patients undertake a short IVF cycle called an Antagonist Cycle. The Antagonist Cycle generally has a 4 week time frame from a patient telephoning with their period to pregnancy test. This treatment is much quicker, has less side effects and is less stressful, so couples see results earlier.
Step 1 – GP referral to the clinic in the name of both you and your partner (if you have one)
Step 2 – Initial consultation where your specialist will order all pathology testing and investigations
Step 3 – Follow up consultation where your specialist will prepare your treatment plan based on the outcome of your pathology results and investigations
Step 4 – Day 1 – commence your cycle, call the clinic and find out when you will have your first monitoring blood test and ultrasound
Step 5 – Continue to monitor your cycle safely to egg collection whilst taking medication
Step 6 – Egg Collection
Step 7 – Embryo grown to Day 5 (Blastocyst)
Step 8 – Embryo Transfer
Step 9 – Pregnancy test
