So we went for our IVF initial consultation yesterday…. It’s been a long 4 years of tests, operations, treatment. I do feel disheartened as I’m so keen to start and would ideally like to have my 1st round completed prior to Christmas (We are NHS funded). I have low AMH, so they have decided to do the short protocol (starting on day 2 of my cycle) with the maximum dosage of drugs. But we need to wait for our planning appointment (injection training, HIV bloods and sign the consent forms). I am an in-patient person if I’m entirely honest. I cope better when I know dates of appointments and when things are going to happen…
The waiting is the hardest part, they stated there is not much of a waiting list for planning appointments, up to 6 weeks.
Anyone else been treated at Exeter? How long did you have to wait for a planning appointment after IVF consultation. Also I believe there may be 2 planning appointments before starting treatment.
I’ve rang the clinic again today to try and get a better idea of when it may happen, I think I drive them mad, I’m awaiting for them to call me back.
Any advice would be very useful.
Best wishes to you all. xx
