Hi, am new on here although have been reading other people's posts for a while! Am just looking for a bit of advice. I have just turned 41 and have been TTC no 2 for approx 2 years. Currently under NHS fertility clinic - have only had initial appt, second one booked for end of January. We decided to book a private consultation as want to get things moving asap, so have a private consultation booked for next Wednesday.
This cycle is currently 61 days (!) but I think possibly AF is almost here thank goodness. Although the GP sent me for blood tests the LH/ FSH ones were at some random point in my cycle, so obviously the hospital has said when AF arrives, have that done again and also call up to book a hysterosalpinogram (checking no tube blockage).
I'm now thinking, if AF arrives and I have these tests done/ booked before we even go for our private consultation, what would be the next step? The private clinic wants copies of any tests done already (although blood tests irrelevant have scan results and OH's SA results) I'm not sure how comfortable I feel with having tests done on the NHS and then just asking for copies for the private clinic, or would the private clinic want to do them again anyway? If that's the case though, I'd have to wait until my next cycle which could be another 60 odd days and then we might as well just proceed with the NHS one, have the appt at the end of Jan and go from there!! NHS have already said Clomid is the only thing they can offer us at my age anyway!
Thanks for reading, sorry for long thread, just a bit confused about the best way forward!
