Firstly a lovely community you all have, im sure there are other guys here but let me say Hi!
I was hoping to try understand some info before I visit the doctors again for a referral for private IVF. Essentially my wife has not had a period for around 2/3 years, never really thought about it and to be honest other things were more pressing. Neither of us have kids and many years ago we failed on a IVF, many years ago after the transfer.
Recently she went to the docs who referred her to the Gyno about not having a period, possibly early menopause. They did bloods and said everything looked fine but suggested IVF to her, this made us think maybe we should try a private IVF.
We now have a appointment in August with the Gyno who we would need to talk to about completing the referral and it would be sent to Care UK to do the IVF.
As great as it sounds and it will be expensive I presume as the IVF costs are one thing, I assume medications are on top costs so looking around 4-5k plus medicine. But what I am unsure about is who deals with the fact she has not had a period, I guess the logic would be to give her medication to ovulate and produce mass eggs? Would this mean more expensive medications or is there a cheaper way to do it?
Apart from Care are there any other recomended clinics, the local NHS refer to care in Bucks.
Thank you for any advice in advance or anyting you suggest.
