    State Laws / loopholes changing for PGD in Australia

    I just wanted to start a thread here because I saw others discussing over in a due date thread about the Queensland doctors who are currently investigating whether they can offer PGD for family balancing due to a loophole.

    I didnít want to lose the info that netti added so putting it here for others too.

    Dr David Malloy from Queensland Fertility Group is in support of PGD for family balancing.

    Waitlist for info via Melissa, number 07 3015 3022.

    I havenít been able to get through just yet but Iím going to try again soon.

    Thanks Netti for this info!

    Good idea Frankie. I really wish this would happen, it would just open up the possibility of going HT for so many people who can't make it happen overseas for financial reasons. I am still a little scarred after an interaction I had with my GP while we were waiting for the report into it the other year in which she pretty much laughed in my face when I asked if she thought it would be legalised. Reminded me about how far we have to shift public and many medical professionals opinions for this to happen.

    Haven't seen you round much lately Frankie. Are you still stealth swaying or looking into HT?

    Just to add ladies try Queensland Fertility Group it's a toll free number, and ask to be transferred to Dr Malloys rooms. I think Melissa is on holidays.

    I spoke with his rooms today (i think he returns on the 15th). I was able to book an early phone consult with him on the 23rd. The receptionist advised they haven't got very far with the legal side unfortunately, so I'm not sure what to expect when I speak to him.

    I will update you when I have spoken with him. I also contacted Genea, however I won't hear until next week sometime.

    So.. long story short I was pregnant, lost the baby and it sort of triggered all these ginormous discussions - a lot of stuff happened all at once for us and we made the decision to actually wait a bit - Iíve decided to try and get my business off the ground first ! Weíve given ourselves 2 years max (Iíll be 37). So to that end Iím very curious about the new discussions around local HT possibilities !

    That sounds annoying - so ridiculous how taboo it is to talk about. Where thereís money to be made companies like Genea and QFG will try their hardest to get legislations changed, so thatís on our side !

    This is in no means to offend anyone, but with the introduction of gay marriage, single women and gay couples accessing IVF for their dream to come true, I'm struggling to understand why there's a blockade on our dreams. Particularly when it will boost local economy.

    It should be our reproductive right to be able to seek these options for our family and our mental and emotional well being

    Just about to start ramping my sway up (if I don't back out with cold feet). Getting the Mirena out next week and in my head and with my ideal timeline likely to ttc April-July. I'm pretty set on not having to larger age gap and even that will put it at about 4.5/5 years between DD1 and #3. If HT was really going to be a viable option here within the next year I'd have to seriously look at that.
