I have been seeing Dr Foong for 4+ years, and he is brilliant. His pro-activeness and bedside manner are one in a million. I conceived my first set of twins through IUI, 3 years ago. (after 1 year of trying-have PCOS,Endo) and and now after 2 cycles of IVF/ICSI, I am 20 weeks pregnant...with another set of twins! ( I tried countless IUI's over the course of 2 years,before I tried IVF)
The IVF, and the freezing of the embryos totaled about 15K. None of which I can claim from my health insurance. You have to take into account, the egg retrieval is done under General Anesthetic, and you need a bed in the hospital for recovery after the eggs have been removed/replaced,even though it's only for a few hours.I guess in a private hospital, this can be pricey.
Hi, It's just a suggestion, you may want to try singapore general hospital Dr Yu su ling first, at first I tried private before too, but I went back to singapore general hospital as that's not only a hospital, is a research centre and institution. And when you seek got ivf treatment, is charge as private, the nurses there r very friendly too, thus I was thinking instead of paying for environment, you may want to pay for quAlity of doc....
lulu8173, did you succeed on a fresh or frozen cycle with Dr Foong? How many embryos did you implant?
I am due to start my fet with Dr Foong in July.
Thanks for sharing!
I was successful on my second attempt, using frozen embryos. I responded very well to the egg stimulation,and harvested over 30 eggs!! - although that was not without side effects! The embryologist defrosted (?) 3, and told me which were the better looking ones, I then implanted 2.(on the 1st Cycle, I only implanted 1).
Hope that helps! Am more than happy to chat about this process, as it can be daunting and downright scary! (well I was )
1.Kandang Kerbau Hospital is good,previously we went to private hospital and cost us a lot and advise me to underg ivf so were trying to go Kandang Kerbau Hospital.
2.can i just just make direct appointment to specialist the lady said have to cocultation again is thier any doctor can recommend and did a good job on ivf treatments.
thank you in advance for the replies
Cost of treatment n chances varies frm diff prob face..
If you can wait, I would recommend you to get a referral letter from any polyclinic. They will make appt with Kandang Kerbau Hospital where you will be paying subsidised rates for consultation, fertility screen, blood test.
Most ladies choose either Dr SF Loh or Dr Sadhana. If you want to assign a doctor, you also will treated as private patient so no subsidy. My suggestion is get all those fertility screen done under subsidize rate first, when confirm to do IVF then assign doc.
