New to the site and wanted some advice from anyone who has had to appeal a refusal for a second round at IVF.
I'm 26 DH is 24 but due to having cancer at 17 is infertile. Had the chance of storing sperm whilst undergoing his treatment and had our first attempt in 2011. Needless to say it was a bfn, both heartbroken and took us a while to compose and want to try again.
Now we're in a much better position to try, wrote to the local CCG who stated they give 1 cycle and thats it. Plus due to devious failed attempt they would not fund. Received that letter at the end of January and since then have done pretty much nothing but research second attempt success/failure rates with women of my age plus older and cannot find (unless I'm being really stupid) any correlation that what they have said is correct - if anything the opposite!!
Does anyone have any advise or hints of what to reply back as it's getting me down that the CCG's think that they can play "God" with people's lives!
Thanks in advance
