A GP or gynaecologist referral is required for those wishing to access services at Monash Health Fertility.
Services at Monash Health Fertility are based on the below access criteria:
The Victorian Government will provide funding for 2 stimulated cycles per person per lifetime.
A ‘stimulated cycle’ includes all the activities undertaken in order to grow follicles and collect eggs which are then frozen or fertilised through IVF or ICSI.
When discussing a referral your doctor or specialist may ask if you:
A woman’s age is the most important factor in her ability to become pregnant and deliver a healthy baby. Over 40 years of age, the chance of a woman delivering a baby through Assisted Reproductive Treatment is about 5%. As such, services at Monash Health Fertility are only available to those women who are 42 years of age or under.
*Monash Health Fertility does not provide egg freezing for non-medical or ‘personal’ reasons (such as a woman wishing to save her eggs in order to use them to have a baby at a more appropriate time in the future).
