@Jinx - thank you that is very helpful! Im in kzn and not sure if I should use Dr Coetsee in Umhlanga or come up to JHB, JHB seems like they have a higher success rate.

I agree, try to meet with the FS first. I think the consult at Vitalab is R1500.
Maybe theres another option they can offer you besides IVF.
They are very clued up.
I also think they offer a payment plan if you still want to go the IVF route.
Worth a try :)

@Jinx - at the moment we can't even afford one try so I feel ur pain! I have been reading up on the costs and it all gets so confusing... I suppose the best will be to have a consult with a FS and get a quote on our specific case.

To be honest, the clinic I'm with (Vitalab) is very expensive.
So, if this doesn't work the first time, not sure if we can afford a second try.

Well, we paid in approx. R43 000 last week.
Then went to Dischem for the Menopur and Cetrocide injections and that was around R9 000.

So I think around 50K......lets hope.

@Jinx - im going on to Visanne for the next 3 months to halt my endo as I have just had a lap done to remove quite a bit. Need to first save up before we can start. What sort of costs do we look at? About 70k?

Hi Chanti

I started with IVF last week. Had to start injecting myself at home which is a nightmare for me each morning.

How are you doing? When do you start IVF ?

Sorry to hear about your tubes being blocked but at least there's a way forward.
