Aw hun glad your results have came back normal!

Is doctor saying give it upto two years of trying for a baby after you fiancé has been checked or wait 2 years before trying? Xx

So did you get any advice about your late/irregular periods?

No not really just that it may be takin my body a while to regulate x

General advice is to contact docs if no success after trying for 2 years before IVF. For NHS funded IVF , you will need a BMI of under 30 (even if this needs to be dealt with then start now). Even if it's 30.5, you'll be off the programme - it's strict and both of you will need to be non-smokers. Also, just to warn you, many of the scans during the IVF process will be internal and some of the preliminary tests can be very comfortable / painful

Is it under bmi 30 for men too or just women just curious?

It's only strict for the women - it is more just advisable that men have a healthy weight.

Oh god hope it doesnt have to come to that 😐

It's one of those things, you'd rather not go through it but if that's what it takes.....Wishing you lots of luck on your journey x

Awe reading how long it takes for you to get in makes me so sad I’m not in the uk so hearing all the stories about all the different things is kinda cool but I wish you luck and hope you get pregnant soon

When my hubby and I were trying we only had to wait a year to see the fertility clinic did a lot of tests just to find out that nothings wrong with me and no reason I’m not getting pregnant so they put me in clomid it was so painful sending you baby vibes!
