Hope you are doing well
So after my first failed ivf cycle in June we had an appointment immediately to the following week to discuss further options. It was decided that the second fresh cycle would be started in September depending on AF. During this appointment we asked doctor whether it would be OK if we plan our overseas trip just to get out of stressful mind. She said ya absolutely fine go and refresh yourself for second cycle.
After returning from 10 days abroad holidays, Yesterday, when we went for first scan (because my AF started) to start second cycle doctor said everything is fine and Suppression can be started. Accordingly nurse gave us medication and further plan. At the end when we were about to leave the cabin, doctor came back and told us we can't provide you treatment for 6 months as we have been out of country and therefore there is possibility of zieka virus infection.... We both me and hubby were Shocked... couldn't speak for a minute.. Second cycle can be started only in March.
I told them why don't you test us for this? She said there is no provision of this test here in UK.
We were so disappointed. They could have even informed my letters to all patients. But nothing was organised. Now, I am looking for private clinic here and abroad as well. In any case if I go out of country even for an emergency situation, they will restart my 6 month period freshly.
Sorry for long message. Just to keep you all aware I had to tell whole story. So if you are already on waiting list for ivf and planning to go on holiday out of country think before you plan.
I hope this post will help you to save your time.
