    I'm with Dr J at Vitalab. I think I waited 3 weeks for an appointment. I can't remember the cost of the first consultation and exam but I know it was well over R1000.

    First consult included full examination and scan.

    Next up was an HSG for me followed by a consultation.

    I'm happy with Vitalab so far, although I sometimes feel a bit rushed overall I'm happy with them.

    What fertility Clinic do you use in Gauteng? What is the waiting time to get an appointment? And what prices am I looking at?
    - Medfem, I haven't had to wait for an appointment, usually phone 1 or 2 weeks in advance and get my appointment. Otherwise I fall into the queue on a Friday. They usually consult on Tuesday to Thursday (I think).

    What did they do for the first few appointments?
    - Before my first appointment they sent a welcome pack detailing all the blood work DH and I had to do
    - First consult Dr Rodrigues discussed the results and identified my problems and scheduled a lap/hys
    - After the lap we did a PCT and after that we TTC naturally and now going for IVF

    Please tell me you Doc/Clinic and recommendations.
    - Dr Rodrigues of Medfem has helped 3 women in my family fall pregnant. He's awesome. Great bedside manner, warm and compassionate and very very very good at what he does. He knows his business!!!!

    I am leaning towards: Gynomed Dr Lindeque. Anybody know about him or have had an appointment with him? Expiernece ect?

    I forgot to mention costs

    Initial consult R970
    Follow up consults R550
    Bloodwork etc covered by my medical aid (had the results sent to my local GP then collected them fromk him.)
    Lap etc, the Doctors fees etc is paid upfront and for the aneathetist, the Clinics fees were covered by my medical aid. The inital upfront payment for my op was about R7000 but I claimed it all back from my medical aid.

    Then IVF is R40,000 (initial deposit R33,000 on commencement)
    IVF/ICSI is about R51,000 (all dependant)

    Hope this helps

    Hi all

    I am closing this thread due to the Poll. We had issues in the past regarding Polls relating to best clinic/best doctor so would prefer to er on the side of caution.

    Ika - there are several threads inthe TTC room which revolve around recomendations of clinics in JHB, plse refer to those.

    Thanks for your understanding in this matter.
