IVF programme on radio 4


Hi all, I just wanted to let you know that there is an excellent programme on BBC radio 4 about IVF, and deciding when to stop. I think the doctor might tell me tomorrow that it's not worth trying again, and this programme has helped - just from hearing the voices of people who know what this experience is like. It's worth listening to if you get the chance - it's only 30mins: bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05w85g1

I listened to that too. I've found it a great resource to help explain how hard IVF is, especially to those people in my life who just really don't get it.

I'll have to check this out, is it useful if you're just starting out with ivf?xx

Yes- it just helps to focus you without scaremongering. And for those not going through IVF it shows very clearly just how much of a deal it is for people going through it.

Thanks for sharing 😊

My hubby heard this and said it was really good to hear from the men interviewed as you don't often get a male perspective. Thanks for sharing I was going to try to find this later myself :-)


Thanks for the link; it was interesting. I'm just getting started with my first IVF cycle; I hope I don't have to be in that position, deciding when to stop. Thinking of you - stay strong. x

Just listened to it, was really good to hear all of the varying stories and that other people have come out the other end ok xx

I'll check that out, I think we'll have one more go with an egg donor and then give up. It sounds like this programme has been helpful for people.

There was also a phone in with a fertility specialist on woman's hour yesterday. bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05wpmkn
