Hi all, thank you so much for taking the time to listen.
My husband and I are TTC and we're referred to a central London hospital for IVF. Unfortunately they did not cover NHS patients from our area so we were referred to out local east London centre. It had been a series of tests and scan and period tracking before we finally got the go ahead to go on the waiting list a few weeks ago. The think is its 6 months long and they now have signs up in the clinic saying treatment over the next 3 months might b delayed due to lab refurbishments. Also it's out of the way for the weekly scans etc that I have been going to. My husband and I have some money saved and were thinking of going private at the first hospital we were referred to.
It was just a nicer feeling there not so rushed and all clean and friendly. Also I'm 37 and he is 40 and I'm not sure I can wait 6 months.
I will speak to our current consultant in 2 weeks for a round up of our results to see if we can change hospital and how it will affect our NHS future cycles
Can I ask if anyone else has gone private after NHS? Is it a good idea or am I just going through the frustration everyone does.
We have the option of self funding or private
Thanks in advance for your advice and best wishes to all on this overwhelming journey xx
