    Hi everyone. if i need some clarifications. For the payments of the test and procedures, i understand that the initial tests we would have to bear and is not claimable. However, for the procedures, tests and medications claimable for the co-funding.. do we still have to pay upfront those bills or it will be incorporated and accounted for directly from the govt co-funding... meaning we do not have to pay upfront? I read somewhere in forums that for SGH we would have to pay upfront for all, then the hospital will reimburse via cheque? Is my understanding right? Does this also applies to KKH & NUH?? Thank You.

    Don't stress abt it! Most imptly continue taking your progesterone support and pray that your HCG doubles!

    Hello Lady, for KKH, for those that are claimable, we do not need to pay anything. When we collect the jabs from the Pharmacy, the customer service will pass you a small sticker receipt stating how much the jabs cost. This is for reference only. It's only when the costs of the jabs and meds exceed the grant and medisave, then they will send an invoice to our home address.

    Hope it clarifies.

    It should be else how to fork out so much first then slowly reimburse? If so rich then we don’t need grants and subsidies :p

    I did stop for a while during my first (failed) FET and I almost had UTI as my progesterone support was vaginal inserts. 2nd FET (success) I used it and didn't have UTI. If you are afraid you can check with your gynae, otherwise have to wash it diligently using water. It's very easy to get bacteria and UTI while using vaginal inserts.

    For NUH, almost everything will be paid after ER. They have a sort of package. But there are some blood tests and medication (like progynova, mercilon) that you have to take from pharmacy and pay for that. For the injections etc that are dispensed at their centre for human reproduction, they will all be in the final bill.

    I was lucky. My sonographer saw the fluid in the cavity during the ultrasound scan, hence, alerted THH. My cycle was immediately aborted as there was no way they could do ET.

    My sonographer also saw fluid in lining cavity but today fluid get lesser and she told me is normal one. She said yesterday got one line of fluid and today became one dot. so I don’t know which is which already got to wait till during et day and check with dr thh

    I think if it's not a concern, then dont care so much about it.

    No, if it's really serious like mine, the sonographer will inform THH about it straightaway (which means you have to wait till very long till THH or reviewing doc sees you), then they will abort the cycle right away.

    It's actually the same as my PMS symptoms. But there's one symptoms which I noticed that is sore gums. I had it for a few minutes once. It was very noticeable because it actually hurt when I chewed on my food. I ruled out gum infection because I visited the dentist before I did my transfer.

    Hi Starrain :) thanks for the info

    So far I mainly encountered slight sharp pains left and right. Today 7dp5dt. Can't help but to think what's happening inside haha.

    Your gums healed fast after the 2ww?

    Different people have different symptoms. Mine was cramps. I though my af was coming. But it stopped and then there's nothing.

    Unfortunately though pregnancy symptoms and af are similar so I'd say just take it easy and don't read too much into the symptoms.

    I'm also in my 2ww.

    Not necessarily to have symptoms to have bfp. I have nothing at all for my twin cycle, so worried Tat I failed . Went for blood test timing negatively , cried when waiting for the phone call. Finally call came I burst into tears which I heard my hcg results.
    I wld say every cycle is different , I had severe pain for my eldest gal cycle, then realised it was implantation pain. So this cycle I keep waiting for this pain to occur n it nvr, tats y I didn’t hold any hope at all
