Firstly I must apologise - I am very passionate about IVF - cause I've been there!
But in last night's news and todays Brissie paper - apparently our poor federal government are running out of money and are cutting the IVF cycles to 3 per year for women under 42 and for women over 42 only ever 3 cycles.
When I started trying to get pregnant the govt had just changed this rule to unlimited number of cycles - it used to be only 6 cycles ever in a woman's life time could be funded by medicare and thanks to lots of passionate work and lobbying by IVF/Fertility groups the govt changed the rule to unlimited cycles.
Now they are changing it again. How can they promise us the "baby bonus" and as per good ol' Jonny Howards election speach "no stay at home mother will ever be punished under my government" - now they are limiting the cycles!
My heart bleeds for the poor govt -l NOT! I pay $210 bucks a month for private health insurance after the rebate and still get bugger all for what I pay!
I think the govt should think more about spending money in our country then cutting the medicare rebates/funding instead of giving our money to asian countries that support the death penalty!
Sorry for venting - but this subject is a passionate one for me - since I've been there - I cannot understand why they cut funding to us - when they think nothing of giving money to the asian countries who "cry poor mouth".
Yes I'm probably going to recieve a backlash for this post - so go right ahead - I'm listening!
