    Hi Hun, I'm not having treatment, but I can help! Whichever clinic you go to (either private or NHS) there will be forms. I imagine with NHS treatment there arent so many as they can access your medical history, but there will still be consent forms at the least.

    And yes you'll be taught to self inject, although if I remember correctly there are some drugs that can be substituted for an oral version if you really don't want to inject - I don't know how available these are on the NHS though, I only know how private clinics work.

    I can only speak for this clinic, but it's an initial consultation where you'll have an ultrasound internal scan to check uterus and ovaries. Then you'll speak with a consultant about your results (as well as bloods and medical history) then they decide best course of treatment and drugs plan, you can normally start from your next cycle once all bloods are completed.
