Hi all. I was wondering what experiences people have had of getting time off work for IVF treatment?
I've just found out that I will need IVF. It was a bit of a shock, as I had expected to just be given clomid (I have PCOS). I feel very grateful that I'll be getting the treatment very soon, but my work rota is done months in advance. We're also a bit short staffed and on top of that it's peak holiday time. My managers don't have a good reputation for being understanding with sickness leave either.
I'm stressed that I'm going to have trouble getting the time so I haven't plucked up the courage to speak to my manager yet. I don't even know how much time I'll need off for egg retrieval, or how many scans and blood tests I'll need to attend clinic for.
I know I'll probably get more info on dates and times from the clinic at some point, but meanwhile I was wondering if anyone on here could shed some light on this for me?
