In Februaury 2021 Your IVF Success was established by the Federal government as an independent webiste allowing patients to access information on their chances of success with IVF treatment. Individial clinics can be compared to provide a realistic chance of success before embarking upon treatment. As reported in the Daily Telegraph Genea Newcastle along with several other Genea clinics offers the highest chance of a baby per treatment in NSW.

Questions to ask your IVF lab?

  • Blastocyst culture Genea Newcastle does day 5 (blastocyst) transfers exclusively due to the significantly higher pregnancy rates acheived versus day 2 or day 3 transfers. 
  • Vitrification We exclusively vitrify eggs & embryos rather than the older less reliable method of slow freezing. Some embryos do not survive freezing and thawing. At Genea the survival rate of embryos is >95% (higher than the Australian average).
  • Time lapse single stage culture Every single embryo at Genea Newcastle is cultured in Genea's exlcusive Geri incubator allowing us to watch and monitor the embryo's growth via time lapse photography without disturbing the embryo.
  • Can you watch your embryos grow? Using the GROW app our patients can login 24/7 to watch their embryos develop in the laboratory. Every single Genea patient has access to this amazing service which is not available at any other IVF clinic in Australia. 

What does IVF cost? After success rates this is the question we get asked the most. Everyone's situation is different and therefore what treatment ultimately ends up costing varies enormously between people. Having private health insurance that covers you for IVF makes a difference to the cost. We offer the best chance of having a baby not the cheapest treatment.

  • The first cycle of IVF costs between $5000 to 7500 depending on health insurance
  • A frozen embryo transfer costs between $2000 to 3000 depending on health insurance
  • Using a sperm donor costs about $2000 per straw of sperm used

Most people <38 years old are successful within 3 to 5 embryo transfers.

If you have not had a baby after three egg collections and the transfer of all available embryos
