I think we should get to the top of the NHS list at the Royal around May time so we are going to go for one more private cycle before that. Just working out where - Origin, RFC Belfast or GCRM (Glasgow) -- time is not on our side as I am 39 and have low ovarian reserve.
Who is your consultant at Royal? And do you know your protocols yet?
I'll be cheering you on.

Hi threebirds

I too was put on the NHS and private list Dec 11 and got my letter for private in June and letter for NHS at start of September! Just got my schedule today 16 days after screening appointment I'm so excited and anxious also when did you go on the list for NHS I think it's currently 9mths waiting and I have heard of other girls getting their offer after 6-7mnths hopefully you will get word soon I'm currently under DR Williamson but was seen by DR Joy last appointment they are both lovely

I'm considering GCRM for any subsequent cycles if this fails or hopefully for future babies I really think with their satellite clinics in NI and the amazing reviews I have read about them I won't even consider anywhere else as I want to egg share either way after this cycle and I believe they have the best individual treatment plans in the UK x

Hey u

I really can't believe it!! I had ordered my BCP as soon as my letter came and my AF started the day before my screening appointment so nurse told me to start the pill straight away so only on the BCP 16days! I really wasn't expecting to hear anything for at least another 3 weeks minimum! Oh I really hope u get urs soon so we can compare notes x

May I join in?

I am 23 years old, single with endometriosis.

I am doing long protocol IVF due to endo and using a sperm donor. I haven't had a period since July.. But RE didn't want to force one with provera.

So I am starting BCP 10/13/12

Lupron injections will start 11/13/12 then adding in Gonal-F

My egg retreival will be around 12/9/12 and a 5 day transfer

What does everyone else cycles look like meds/length wise?

Doctor would like to get 25-30 eggs he isn't too concerned about OHSS.. But I am!!

Im so excited following you all


The RVH protocol is so different to the short protocol I had with Origin so I feel like a newbie :-)

We were thinking of a private cycle at GCRM before Christmas while waiting for our RVH NHS treatment but then we got our letter for the RVH private list on Fri! This was much sooner than we expected! So hoping that means our NHS cycle will also come around sooner, in which case we should save our GCRM go for after the NHS cycle (we are just going to defer the RVH self-funder offer as I think we prefer the GCRM option & can only afford to pay for 1 more).
We went on waiting list for RVH NHS & self funded at the very end of May - so a little over 4 months later we got RVH self funded letter offer!! What do you all think - on this basis should we expect our NHS offer sooner than we had anticipated??

Oh and we're with Dr Agabje (who also does the belfast GCRM sattellite service along with some of the other Royal consultants).

Thanks ladies xxx
