In response to our rising case numbers, we have implemented additional testing/screening measures to ensure safety and continuity of your treatment with us.

This means, all patients will be required to have a swab to test for COVID-19 72 hours prior to all scheduled procedures (e.g., oocyte collection | embryo transfers | IUIs | testicular biopsies) and isolate until the day of your procedure.

Your MIVF nursing team will advise of the process prior to your scheduled procedure.

The screening involves three steps:

1. Obtain your Pathology Form:

Your MIVF nurse will provide this to you at the right stage of your treatment cycle.

2. Attend your COVID Swab at least 72 hours prior to your scheduled procedure/elective surgery.
Please isolate until your procedure.

3. Forward your results to Melbourne IVF. Your results are sent directly to your mobile. Please forward this to Melbourne IVF to the contact details below:

  • For East Melbourne and Mt Waverly patients, please text your results to: 0417 656 203

Where can I have the test done?
Not all collection centres are set up to collect samples for COVID-19. We recommend ACL or Dorevich.

Sincerely,

Melbourne IVF
