Hi all – I’m looking into using a company called Primary IVF, they are located in Sydney but they are opening a clinic in Melbourne, I have used MIVF before but can now no longer afford it, Primary IVF on initial conversations are telling me it will cost me approx $900 to do an ICSI cycle, does anyone have any experience good or bad to share on them and why so cheap compared to the likes of MIVF or Monash who charged an initial $10k plus – Thanks

  • Check what they actually cover and what else is out of pocket. We used repromed, but knew the costs upfront plus what we would get back from private health and Medicare.

  • yeah you have to get them to break down what exactly you will be paying for. seems cheep

  • I would definitely be phoning and asking what the exact costs are

  • check exactly what that covers and does not cover so you can compare like for like.

  • No experience – have you tried some online forums/groups on IVF for info and support?

  • I agree with bellaB, Is that just for the first consult to be seen or for the whole deal including meds needed.? With follow up from own doctor. Before attending i would ring and ask exactly what is included in that fee. As you have been through it before you know what should be involved. I would also ask about follow up out of pocket expenses just to be sure. And to confirm the costs i would ask for a email explaining what is involved. You can not judge a company on price alone but asking the success rate and comparing it to others might be a starting point. They might need to get a name for themselves before they put the prices up.

  • That is astonishingly cheap. Why don’t you ask them about the reason for the cost difference? And ask them about their success rate too.
