I've just had my second op to clear up ovarian cysts and endormetreosis (last year it was a grade 3 but this year it was worse). This time they did the dye thing which showed that my left tube was blocked. Its been recommended that we be refered for IVF. Trying to keep positive, but I really don't know what to expect or how long it will all take.
Any way, thanks for reading

Hi boben! I'm goin through the same sort of thing at the moment. I had my 2nd op to clear up endo last july, i had my dye 2nd dye test done (HSG) and that confirmed that both my right and left tubes are blocked and after many attempts to unblock them, nothing worked. So now basically its a cycle of IVF and hoping for the best. I am really nervous, i know exactly what u must have been going through... but i read bump in the message above?? so r u expecting? i really hope things worked/wprk out for you xx

I hope everything goes ok! I dont know if its because of the area i'm in that they are able to give an indication.. they told me there was no waiting list at all.. i've heard london clinics are very busy, im in nottingham so i'm using care fertility, they have the better reviews out of the 2 i have a choice of. Obviously because my ivf is funded i get a choice of 2 clinics. I feel your nerves, i'm the same .. and as for counting down the days, thats right! I'm really excited and i just want to get things moving now x

I'm also waiting for my first appt with the consultant (it's in March) as my husband and I will be going through IVF with ICSI. I have been trying to get referred for approx 2 years but as I was under 30 I wasn't allowed to be even seen. As soon as I turned 30 I was straight back to the docs! A year on and we finally have a date to see a doc at the Hosp. If there's anything I have learned it's that all PCTs are different unfortunately but your GP should be able to give you an indication. There is also a clinic in London that offers FREE IVF to under-35s if you donate half your healthy eggs to someone who needs them. London's Womens Clinic I think they are called? Private is very expensive so at the very least get your tests done on the NHS (as these can mount up) and go private from there if that is what you choose to do.
You also have to complete a 19 point checklist to see if you qualify for funding in the first place. There is probably an example online if you search?
