Hi I am new to post on this sight but have been reading your stories for last few month's, I have been given some news I wasn't expecting at all yesterday and feel incredibly lost.
A little bit of history
We started ttc in 2008 and suffered a miscarriage at 6 weeks in 2009 than again a miscarriage in 2010, our third pregnancy made it to 18 weeks before my world literally stopped and I gave birth to our baby girl (at the time no reason for early labour) we conceived again but history repeated itself and at 18 weeks I gave birth to our son, I was then diagnosed with incompetent cervix. I known I do not need to explain to you all the daily pain and devastation I battled so I could continue and achieve a successful pregnancy but it did not happen quickly we were referred to the fertility clinic and all test for both of us normal and the biggest miracle happened we had a beautiful boy he is amazing my whole world and the reason for living however we never wanted an only child but with no luck naturally I went to see the GP I was expecting my bloods to come back abnormal as I have ridiculously long cycles from 48 to 72 days I do ovulation tests daily and my last positive was September 2014 but no they are normal my husbands sperm is only 2% good quality. He has said IVF only option natural conception unlikely and has referred us to our local clinic I have so may questions but I just cant think straight.
can anyone help with few questions:
will the initial appointments be free until I get told what if any or options are or do we pay from first apt?
can I change the clinic, I didn't like this one last time I was referred not very helpful or sympathetic?
or do I go to this clinic as it is NHS to complete diagnosis then choose where I have the treatment if it's an option will they transfer all the information or will it all be repeated hence more time?
Can I get any idea of cost from somewhere for IVF for example as I don't know how we will manage ?
dose cost vary massively between clinics ?
Anything else you could help me with
Thank you in advance I know its a long post and I know how blessed I am to have my son but also how much I will be missing by not trying for another child.
