Before your first consultation
Your first consultation
We need to carry out a blood test on the second day of your menstrual cycle. Call our nurses on 0161 276 6209 the day your next period begins to arrange your test. At this visit we will also send a sample of urine to exclude Chlamydia infection. If Chlamydia infection is detected we will arrange treatment for this before your IVF treatment.
We will measure your height and weight during this visit to ensure that they are within the normal range. If not, we can offer advice and support on how to reach your target but will not proceed with treatment until this is achieved.
We will send you an appointment for a semen test at St Mary’s. You should abstain from ejaculating for 3 to 4 days before your test. When you attend for your semen test, you will be given an appointment for your first medical consultation.
f a semen test is not required we will send you a clinic appointment by post within two weeks of the Waiting List Meeting. If you have not heard from us by then, call us on 0161 276 6494.
Your first consultation
Your first consultation will last for about 60 minutes. We will explain your treatment and complete all the consent forms.
AFTER YOUR FIRST CONSULTATION – and once all your test results are known – you are ready to start treatment.
Starting an IVF treatment cycle
Call us on 0161 276 6340 on the first day of your period (the day you wake up bleeding) when you wish to start treatment. We need to know your name, date of birth and the dates of your last three periods. Call between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. – our answering machine will be on if you call before 9 a.m. If you do not have periods, you will be told when to ring at your first consultation.
You the nurses will call you back within 72 hrs to find out if we can accept you for treatment that month.
We cannot guarantee treatment in any one month, but if we are unable to accept you in a particular month we will try to provide treatment as soon as possible. Acceptance for treatment is dependent on funding from your Primary Care Trust.
AFTER YOUR TESTS YOUR LETTER FOR CONSULTATION USUALLY ARRIVES BETWEEN 5 - 12 weeks How to prepare your injections (videos)
We are registered with St Mary's. We have had all of the investigation test & our 1st appointment was supposed to be in November 2011. Unfortunately that was postponed until June this year. I didn't want to wait that long so we had one private appointment with the same consultant, he gave us 6 months of Clomid to try. If that doesn't work we will be seeing him in June at St Mary's for IUI.
Have you had all of the tests done yet, do you know who your consultant is?
St Mary's has a fantastic reputation so I think we are in good hands x
Well we have had all the tests we been refered for ivf because of my severe endometriosis Ive just had my second surgery laparotomy because I had a huge cyst (again) on my left ovary but this time it had stuck to my bowel it was there just 3months after a laparoscopy so my gyne wants the ivf to start ASAP before its back again.
I have no idea who we will be seeing we havnt been to st Mary yet we sent our forms back last Monday so just waiting to get in there now we had all our tests done at our fs at Oldham so that has been sent to them.
Why did they make you wate that much longer? that scares me
Oh im sorry i didnt mean to scare you! There wasn't an explanation on the letter, it just said your new appointment is june. We are under Oldham PCT too, the consultant told us you get 3 goes at IVF if your under Oldham so we are lucky in that way!
I don't know how the waiting lists work, maybe it's case by case & you will be seen quicker with your circumstances? x
I had my laparoscopy at the highfield in rochdale. Been to a few different places so far!
Me too I hate waiting, i was devastated when they moved the appointment but I feel much better since I got the Clomid, I feel like we are actually doing something while we wait.
Oooo I hope you get your letter this week! x
We had a booking in appointment at St Mary's where they asked about our history etc. and we had to take ID for that. Maybe they do that bit by post now to save time/money.
We are praying the Clomid works too! Hubby is excited about the chance of having twins, whereas I'm scared lol
Have they given you an indication of what treatment you will have? Will it be IUI or IVF
