IVF journey at St Mary's

just to share my recent experiences with SM;

17 sept 09 - laparoscopy for tubal patency & ovarian drilling
2 oct 09 - referral to ivf unit
7 nov 09 - initial blood test and scan on day 1
18 nov 09 - post op or could it be my initial ivf appt??

SM delivers 18 week patient pathway, and funds up to 3x of ivf.

me & dh 30 yrs old
both tubes blocked (PID), PCOS
IVF is the only option

Sept 09 - referral to ivf unit from gynecologist at Wythenshawe Hospital
5 Oct 09 - initial blood test and scan - I don't have regular peiods so rang on the Friday and got an appointment for the Monday morning at 7:30am
1 Dec 09 - Treatment consultation with nurse practioner at SM

Our PCT is Trafford and I haven't had clarification about how much they with fund through fertility treatments.

DP hasn't been offered any SA, I'm wondering if I should request this with St Mary's or can he do it through the GP?? I don't want the fact that he hasn't had this done to delay possible treatment whilst they wait for the results.
Been re-diag with PCOS. Waiting for the results from DP's SA & have a follow up appo at the end of Jan 2010

Me 29 DP - 32 DS (from prev rel) - 6

Forgot to mention that I had a colposcopy done on 21st October as my last smear result came back abnormal. They reported that they couldn't detect any abnormalities but I had to have a repeat smear anyway so I'm waiting for a clear result from that as St Mary's require a clear result from a smear withing the last 12 months (I think).

hiya ladies,

i had my AF last friday and called SM to ask whether they need further blood & scan (coz i passed out last time) & i also cheekily ask if i can request tx, so the nurse said she will look at my notes and call me back. finally just now the nurse rang and ask me to come for blood & scan tomoz & to bring my smear test result too, does this mean that my tx will kick start this month? thinkthink
