Whipps Cross University Hospital

Hey ladies I'm a newbie to the site and have just been referred.



I wondered if anyone else was being/has been treated at Whipps Cross as we have our initital appointment there next month. I'm very nervous but cannot wait to get started.

Hi and welcome - sorry but I don't know the clinic you mention and can't find anyone who has been there in our search, but I am sure that some of the girls will be along soon to say hi anyway!

I hope you like it on here, we have very friendly and supportive members that are sure to make your TTC journey that little bit easier, I hope you feel right at home with us all soon.

Here are some links that you may find useful.

There is an abbreviations section HERE so you know what we're all going on about.

There is an IVF/ICSI section HERE with a FAQ section HERE where you will find a great introduction to IVF/ICSI.

There is a cycle buddies section HERE so you can get to know others having TX at the same time as you.

There is a 2WW section HERE and a 2WW CHAT thread HERE so you can compare every twinge and symptom with everyone else.

There is a ** GETTING STARTED - FZ FACTS, TIPS & HELP ** thread HERE this contains everything you need to know about getting started on FZ. We would appreciate it too if you could take a quick look over our brief terms of the site HERE so you can familiarise yourself with the one or two small rules we have, which help to keep FZ the safe and friendly site it is!

There is a ** NEW TO THE SITE? A BIT LOST? POST FOR HELP HERE!!! ** thread HERE where you can post any questions you have about how to use the site, a team member will answer you as soon as possible!

And finally!! Have you seen that lots of our members have fancy names in their signatures? If you’re interested in having something similar it’s really easy to do. Have a look HERE to choose a style. If there isn't one you like there, let us know the kind of thing you'd like and we'll try and create one for you.

Because the running of the site completely depends on the kindness of our members, we ask for a small donation in return for a signature name, which is explained HERE. Hang around a bit and get to know us before you decide if you'd like to support us!

If you have any questions about anything, just ask. :smile:

Wishing you all the luck in the world with your TTC journey

Thank you so much!

I contacted the HFEA and Whipps Cross isn't one of their regulated clinics. Is this something to worry about?

I've searched online but cannot find anything fertility clinic based.

I'm nervous enough without this, am I over reacting?

I can't find anything either, but don't panic! It could well be that initial investigations are carried out at Whipps but then any treatment is from another clinic such as Barts?

Hi Bumblebee and welcome

Sorry i missed this before. Eeyore is right - initial tests are carried out at Whipps cross but then my understanding is that they refer patients to Barts for IVF.

There is a Barts clinic thread here, which may help St Bart's hospital London
