Hi just looking for some advice.
I am infertile and have been receiving fertility treatment since 2014. I cannot produce and release eggs myself as my body does not regulate/produce hormones. I used to but have always had excessive bleeding, cysts and pelvic pain.
I stopped the bleeding after having the mirena.
I have worked my way from clomifene, letrazole and various other tablets. I then moved onto FSH infections used with HCG injection ovitrelle which has worked to grow and release eggs. I have had 6 Cycle's in which my consultant guaranteed would work. I have had one by chemical pregnancy but other than this i have not fertilized a egg. I have now been advised they cannot give me any more injection Cycle's on the NHS. I will now be reffered for IVF with a current waiting list of approx 1.5 year.
Unfortunately my next clinic appointment has been cancelled but unfortunately the way my consultant works he never discusses the future likes to focus on the current treatment.
I haven't been informed on the process and how long it takes once I receive an appointment and the process.
As I had have no hormones for at least 5 years before I started my treatment it was a horrible experience and I have had quite bad side effects and since 2014 have constantly had hormones. I am really worried to wait a year and a half to withdraw from the hormones and go through the process all over again , whatever the process is ?
Do I wait or do I go private and have the treatment sooner? What is the script with second children and for post IVF with private to use NHS again ? Sorry I'm a bit clueless as they haven't spoke to me about IVF at all
