So there's not much of a diff, isn't it? I was told the whole cycle will cost around 8-12k.
For govt hospital, as long you are <35, doing fresh transfer & both Singaporeans, you will get 3x govt grant (3k) and 3x medisave deductible (6k, 5k, 4k). For frozen transfer, no govt grant and not advisable to use medisave because total cost about 2k+.
For private hospital, whether you are doing fresh or frozen, no govt grant but have 3x medisave deductible (6k, 5k, 4k). Total cost will come up about 12k-15k (subject to how much medication is required). For frozen transfer, should be about 4-5k.
During ivf briefing, the nurse told us ivf cost will be 9-10k (subject to how much medications is required). However when my ivf bill came is only <7k only (1/2 deduct govt grant, 1/2 deduct medisave). Cash is only <$300 for insurance, blood test and lucrin (1st bottle).
Hi Minako, thanks for the explanation. I was actually rederring to the additional cost of changing doctors in kk. The nurses gave me an idea that I can't choose doctor in order to get 50% govt subsidies. But I'm actually pretty pleased with my doc, just wondering how it works.
hi everyone, i'm new to this thread.
i did so-iui on 29 nov and Doc gave me duphaston to take. Getting rather nervous and kan-cheong as my last dose is tonight. Already, i keep feeling very cramping, same feeling as when menses about to come. does that mean most likely fail already? keep searching the internet for pregnancy symptoms but made me more kan cheong.
I did my IUI in January this year. I also had cramps and light bleeding. Like you, I searched the net to look for hopes/answers and but became more anxious.
In the end, my cycle failed. But dont't despair upon hearing that. For us, hubby's sperm morphology and motility is not very good. And I'm not even sure if one of my fallopian tubes is blocked. Did you do HSG test before your IUI?
Think you'll know your results in a few days so dont't think so much. Relax. Many of us here are all having similar problems. You are not alone. Jia you!
Can anyone pls share what is the "correct" procedure for IUI?
From all the threads I have read, I seem to be going thru a different process as the rest of you..
I have done IUI twice and now m in the 2ww period..
I was only given Clomid (for day 2 to 6) and on day 14, was asked to go for a scan to check for ovulation.. And on day 15 insertion of the sperm was done.
No further medications/injecions were given by gynae after the insertion..
Am I missing something?
thks dandelion for the support. i did 3 times iui based on natural ovulation but all failed. also went thru the hsg test before doing this time so-iui. keeping my fingers crossed and hope for the best.
hopeful78 - for iui, you can do it either via
- natural ovulation ie. use ovulation kit and when turn positive do the iui procedure
- natural ovulation with clomid (same as above, but with clomid). but clomid thins the lining so not recommended to do it too many times
- so-iui when you do daily injections and doctor monitor the size of your follicles regularly and when the size of the follicle is big enough, you get an injection to induce ovulation. After which the iui procedure is done.
in my case, natural ovulation did not work for me, so am on so-iui now.
for private hospital i spend about:-
for natural ovulation iui with no clomid
- it's about 500 - 700 (for dr fee, sperm preparation etc)
for so iui
- it's about $2.2K - $3K
Thanks Superwhitetiger and Minakochang..

I am very new here.. Anyone of you tried IUI and it was a success? I did my IUI on 28Dec. It just happened that day I was ovulating and the gynae said it was a very good time.... Now I am on 2WW and very nervous.... I am hoping for a success....
However, since the day I had my IUI, I had lower right abdominal cramping when I sit too long and smtimes I had back pains too...
Anyone has any advice or recommendations.... I am reallya anxious and afraid that it might fail

I thought of trying the IUI ~ (i heard the costs is about 400 to 500 bucks)... am now visiting Dr. Tho (London Clinic @ Jrg East).. my BBT chart shows that i am not ovulating well
Dr. Tho has given me clomid for 3 cycles. only the 2nd cycle i managed to ovulate... the first & 3rd cycle i didnt ovulate at all
and now dr. tho doubled my clomid intake for 1 cycle. and plus i have to take blood test
is there any way i can ovulate as per normal? sob sob ...
I just did my IVF @ Mt E. Gynae: Dr Charles MP Lim, #13-02. Succeeded on first cycle.
Did 3x IUI @ Thomson Medical Center in 2009 but failed.
hi there i am new in IVF here...
as i got twice Ectopic Pregnancy but my tubes are still in tact, my gynae and traditional chinese medicine suggested me to go IVF as the possibility for me to get Ectopic Pregnancy is 101%.
I will dare to say that my husband and I are healthy, but my tubes are the issue.....so may i know the procedure for couples with healthy semen and eggs? and roughly what the cost for it?
