I am in a same sex relationship and my girlfriend is about to leave me. We have been trying to get pregnant for a while now. It is she who is receiving the treatment. After 6 unsuccessful attempts at iui the nhs are now going to fund 3 ivf attempts. I have suggested we put things on hold as I fear if we go ahead just because we've come so far. She will get pregnant and take my child away from me and raise them with someone else or take them to a different country as she is originally from Sweden and all her family are there. She refuses to put things on hold as is approaching 40 so time is not on our side. I don't know what rights I have. We have been attending the treatment as a couple. Will they allow her to go ahead if I say no? I'm at a complete loss I had our future all planned out in my head and now it's all been taken away. She seems to think we can still go ahead and raise a child together even if we are no longer together.
