Hi all! Firstly just to let you know...I am the husband!
I found you guys by searching for info on NHS Funding. A bit of background on us, we live in Southampton, Hampshire. I am 33, my wife is 31, she has had two ectopic pregnancies and subsequently had both fallopian tubes removed, the most recent being Sept 2016.
I understand from talking to my GP that we would qualify for IVF Funding because of my wifes tubes being removed. However, from what I can find we only qualify for one cycle, am I right? The other question I have is...is there an option for appeal? Two ectopics is incredibly unlucky, we have had several hospital consultants say this, so not sure if this would make any difference?
Another question is, if you are funded, are you best to do your treatment via the NHS or go to a private clinic with NHS funding?
Sorry but yet another question...do you know how long the process is, from the GP writing the initial letter to you finishing IVF?
It is still very raw for both of us and we're not really in a good mental mindset to go through it yet, both scared to death of it not working.
Any help, much appreciated.
