Hi all, I'm 20 years old and currently on my 4th out of six rounds of clomid after 2 years TTC with severe endometriosis, but my fertility specialist wrote to me last month saying she would like to proceed straight to IVF if the clomid doesn't work. I have at least one blocked tube (possibly both) so IUI probably isn't an alternative, never smoked or drank in my life and have a healthy BMI of 20, but read a few articles online about the age limit being 23-39 for NHS funding. Do the decision makers take into consideration reproductive health problems and the length of time you've been trying to conceive? Or have any of you had experience with getting funding at a young age?
Trying to give myself a little bit of hope that there is alternative fertility assitance in the near future if clomid isn't successful! I'm worried and anxious about going through 2-3 more years of constant pain from the endo and being childless, while I wait for my 23rd birthday to arrive, or until I've saved up enough to go private..
Thank you in advance. X
