Just got back from the doctors which I was to attend to see if they would sign me off when I start my cycle of IVF,
She was very blunt in the fact that I wouldn't get sign off unless I'm physically unwell and is proven!
I explained well tried to that it finding this all too emotional and stressful.
I explain that I work with chemicals and heavy lifting she said well then you employment need to do some health risk assessment, i said what then work will let me have the time off she said no there adapt you job to work with you if it's proven that heavy lifting and chemicals will affect you, I said they wouldn't adapt I'd lose my job, and I said I don't want my employment to know of my treatment she basically said well then tell them when your pregnant if it works,
I tried to explain that i wanted to do things differently this time round,
She was rude basically just kept saying just becAuse your pregnant doesn't mean you can't work! I said I'm not pregnant I'm having ivf to try if you listen! And I said it's only through the treatment and 2ww,
She said like I said you have to be genuinely unable to work
Sorry for the rant, I'm just so upset as I so wanted to do everything different this time round
Ive not even started my 2nd cycle yet, just this was playing on my mind
Has anyone else had trouble with getting signed off?
