I was at clinic D today, subsidized patient. And so they prepping me for IVF. But didnt say when, just told me to wait for call from nurses. If I want to see Dr Tan HH, should I wait for a consult with him? Or should I just do ivf under the subsidized rates?

I book an appointment with dr yap lip kee at mount e for consultation, the nurse emailed me about the cost...for consultation around SGD 128 - 268 exclude the lab check up, blood test, medical, etc. Ill let u all know about the cost nextweek. I cancelled the booking with dr Tan at KKh, coz i got a good recommendation from friends to go to dr yap lip kee. I googled that dr yap was former dr in KKh but hes now the director of fertility at mount e.

@jennycsy If can, i want to do ivf straight. But i guess definitely they will recommend to do iui first. I have not yet went to my first consultation which is on 19 apr.
Hi @Pinkgrrl, just go for the 1 that you feel most confortable with... i went straight for ivf as i am coming to 37 this year and no time to waste... im looking forward for the next fresh cycle..

Hi @Pinkgrrl, why dont you go straight to ivf?
@jennycsy I wanted to try IVF straight coz I've seen a lot of failed IUI. Have not yet go for my first consultation which is on 19 Apr. I'm sure the doctor will advise to go for IUI first. 2 years back when I went for check up as private patient, the doctor found cysts and fibroids in me and I went for the surgery to remove. After the surgery, the doctor said that my hubby sperm count still low and advised to go for IVF. We stopped there as we thought IVF is very expensive and could not afford. Even I went for consultation after my cysts/fibroids surgery, the consultation fee was expensive. It was my mistake that I did not go to polyclinic for referral. Only now then I went to polyclinic to ask for referral and the staff booked an appointment on 19 Apr for me. I didn't know that there was a government/medisave subsidized for referral patient.

Hi. I'm new here.
Got endometriosis and blocked tubes.
1st cycle ivf unsuccessful due to no implantation.
Now consulting Thomson chinese medicine for acupuncture.
My 2nd ivf cycle starts in Apr/may.
Anyone have the same issues like me and got pregnant eventually? I'm getting disheartened, losing faith.

Hi Pink!

First tests were blood tests, hiv, hepatitis and blood works all. I went to poly to see subsidized kkh, and did all my tests kn subsidies. Both me and hubby, we paid 240. Doc wanted me to do ivf, but i didnt have courage then. I asked for iui. This was last feb 2015.

Then i fractured my toe and never do iui. Till now, just decided ivf. So here i am. Looking for comfort. =)

@Cheetarr I don't hv a team lead doctor as I m a subsidised patient. They will assign random doctors to me. But I am always lucky to get the same doctor during doctor consultations and she is nice and patient.
So lucky! Im under dr jerry chans team when they assigned me as subsidised patient, but i never see same doctor for the last 4 visits.

Did they mention y there is no implantation? I did a HSG then realise my tubes r blocked. Doc suspect this causes no implantation becos the toxic fluid flow to uterus.
U r starting your new cycle this mth? Mine is suppose to be on Apr. But seems like need to postpone due to PH.

Anyone had a successful pregnancy thru ivf with Fallopian tubes blocked? Dr Tan H H says I can opt to clip my tubes b4 I start another cycle but I there r pros n cons. Cos I alr have Low egg reserve. Prior to ivf I alr had 3 ops done due to endometriosis. So I decide not to go for another op.
But now I'm so worried that my 2nd fresh cycle will fail too due to this issue.

Nope leh. Dr also cant find the cause of no implantation. :( My tubes are not blocked but my issue is low egg reserve so v few eggs are being retrieved from my first cycle.

Yap, started my 2nd fresh cycle this mth and due for ER tmr. In Apr, KKH has blk out dates from 16 to 21 Apr. So wld u be doing yr 2nd fresh cycle in May?
