During your cycle it’s likely your Fertility Specialist will prescribe a number of fertility medications. Following changes to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) in mid-2015 your IVF medications need to be dispensed from a pharmacy rather than given to you by Hollywood Fertility’s Nurses.
We are currently working with Hollywood Pharmacy which is located a short drive from the Hollywood Fertility Clinic to ensure you can access the right medications on the day that you require them. Postal services can also be arranged with your pharmacist on request.

Fertility medications are designed to be self administered. Your Nurses will explain how and when to use the medications as you begin your cycle and are available to demonstrate how to self administer the medications if you wish. Contact your Nursing team to make an appointment.
Please note, it is important you follow the storage guidelines which are clearly stated on the packaging of each medication. Hollywood Fertility Centre’s Nurses cannot reissue medications as a result of them not being stored correctly and you will need to repurchase from the pharmacy.
Many of the medications also have patient information booklets and videos, please see below for the details on your specific medications. To gain access to some of these booklets and videos, you will need to enter information from the pack your medication comes in so please have it close to hand.
For patient information booklets, Consumer Medicine Information and how to use prescription medicines (Cetrotide®, Crinone®, Gonal-f®, Luveris® and Ovidrel®)
For information on MSD how to use prescription medicines (Elonva®, Orgalutran®, Pregnyl® and Puregon®) please contact your Hollywood Fertility Centre nurse or pharmacist.
