Hi Everyone. It's my first time posting although I've been following your posts for a while. My hubby and I have been ttc for 18 months. I'm 35 and he's 43. We've started tests to find out what's causing our fertility problems and are awaiting further scans/tests/ consultations. My consultant advised that I needed to lose (more) weight to get my BMI down to below 29 as the NHS would not provide funding if BMI over 29. However I've just received a follow up letter to say that BMI would have to be 29 for at least 6 months and that we would not be eligible for any NHS treatment anyway because they only fund treatment up to 34 years old in my area. I'm super upset as it feels like we've been stopped before we've even started 😕 So my question for those that are self funding, will private clinics offer treatment at my age, bearing in mind it will take a good 6 months to get my BMI down to 29 and then another 6 months of keeping it at 29 and I'll be almost 37 by then. Sorry for the long post and good luck to you all on your journeys xx
