Hi Just looking for some advice I know every case and clinic is different but rough idea would be helpful, just been referred to my local ARU (HARTLEPOOL) my GP said IVF was our option based on husbands sperm movility test however I know there will be more indepth tests/scan ect that the clinic will do!
any idea how long initial apt will be from GP referral?
Then roughly how long for tests to be done and have 2nd apt?
I am overweight and know nhs will only except bmi under 30 however I have to pay for my treatment so will they except a higher BMI (given they are still NHS unit)?
I'm not sure if going to my local ARU is the right choice my GP never gave me options of where I wanted to be referred he just sent it, it's only because I started looking that I realised I had a choice in where I go am I right in thinking NHS will be slower initially as I know i'm not paying for the first referral?
I just want to know the options open to us so we can plan and arrange financially to, I'm worried now that if the initial stage takes months and then the hospital wont help me because of my BMI Ive wasted time I have found a clinic that accepts BMI upto 35 and would transfer here but will I have to repeat everything and pay from first apt fo these repeats so do I just change my mind and get GP to refer my to this clinic??? AAARRRGGGGG I'm driving myself mad I don't understand so much of what I have read and the posts I read on here but that is because I don't know what we need waiting is awful. Thanks for reading I didn't mean to go on and on lol
