I'm just venting here really!
After years of infertility I was finally refered to a gynaecologist and started investigations early last year. After 6 months and every scan and blood test known to man we were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. Very frustrating. But living where we do and regardless of the fact I have a son from a previous relationship from the research I did I knew we should be able to receive 2 rounds of IVF on the NHS.
At my next appointment I was told by the consultant that because I have a child we do not qualify and I should go private. I was totally devastated as I knew we couldn't afford private at this time.
Anyho, that was 6 months ago and whilst doing the usual googling turns out my consultant was WRONG. I spoke to the clinical lead with my concerns and she said yes I was right and I should never have been told we didn't qualify! 😵
So we now have an appointment with a fertility nurse end of April!
Just really scary that others could be being told incorrect information and not actually looking it up and giving up!
Anyone else had to fight to get what they deserve?
