CLOMID AND MONITORING

The NICE Guidelines suggest you should have follicle tracking at least for the first cycle ideally but we would advise it for all cycles as you may respond differently in different cycles. Who prescribed the Clomid - it should only be fertility centres and they should do tracking for you? see section 7.1 for further information http://www.nice.org.uk/nicemedia/pdf/CG011fullguideline.pdf PS LOADS OF GOOD STUFF IN THIS GUIDELINE

RE: ** CLOMID CHICKS **

Had an interesting chat with a chap from the HFEA. THey are quite apalled that lots of centres are advocating Clomid without follicle tracking as per NICE guidelines which means a higher chance of high order multiple pregnancies which is NOT good news. Is anyone prepared to let me know if they have had un-monitored CLOMID as I need to drop a line to HFEA and am not sure how widespread the problem is.

Testing and Treatment in Cardiff

Just to let everybody know we are seeing increased numbers of women and couples requesting advice and infertility investigations as they feel they are often pushed into unecessary IVF perhaps beacuse of the higher profit marrgins from more expensive treatments when less invasive treatments and cheaper ones such as Clomid would suffice and as we do not provide IVF and ICSI treatments it is easier to be completely objective.

Treatment Abroad - Scans in Britain

Just to let everyone no that it is possible to get follicle tracking scans and bloods tests for FSH, LH and E2 in the UK for women having IVF, ICSI and FET treatment abroad but you have to shop around as a lot of IVF untits wont do partial testing or treatment unless you are having the full treatment with them. I was wondering if it would be useful for the moderator to compile a list of centres prepared to do partial testing and treatment to make it easier for those having treatment abroad. Perh...
