I really need some help and guidance in navigating the NHS and BUPA re treatment for endo. I’ve been seeing the reproductive team at a London Trust for over a year now as we can’t get pregnant. I’m 37 and it’s been 2 years TTC. They suspected endo due to the painful and heavy periods I was having and I had a lap in Sept last year and they removed mild endo. They sent me on my way for 6 months and said the chances of conceiving was high.
Sadly nothing has happened and I’ve been having all the same endo symptoms again. A scan today showed an endometrioma on my ovary.
I really want to see someone privately, this is taking way too long on the NHS. They changed my appointment for a scan about 5 times over the last few weeks and are just so impersonal about it all and it’s a nightmare trying to get an appointment.
I have BUPA through work and have had it since well before all this started. How do I get them to send me somewhere privately? I just want a second opinion. Do I call them? Get the GP to refer me? Will they deny me as I’ve been seeing a fertility clinic? Any thoughts/suggestions welcome. I just want to get some help and sort out my periods. The baby stuff can follow later. Thank you 🙏
