We are currently on the waiting list for IVF. In Wales I have to be on the list for at least a year as I’m under 36 years old. I’ve also been told that the waiting list may be longer than a year.
I have been told that if I have one round of private IVF it does not impact my 2 free NHS cycles.
Opinions please on going for a private cycle whilst waiting or whether to go through NHS.
My partners BMI is currently too high (he’s 6ft3 big build trains mainly with weights, not massively overweight) - and I’ve read in our IVF pack and read an article that we could be refused because of that (he is on a diet currently and fertility wise has no problems- its all me).
So I also don’t want to wait a year and be told because he’s a few pounds overweight that we can’t have NHS IVF- as BMI means most rugby players are overweight too! I am healthy- always been in the ‘normal’ BMI range and teach dance twice a week. So they can’t say we’re an unhealthy couple.
