gonal f on nhs for 2nd baby

I'm being very premature here, as Fi's 1st baby isn't due until Jan, but she was talking yesterday about when she would want to try for another. I said i wasn't sure about nhs funding when you already have a child. Clomid didn't work for her but gonal f did the trick with only one cycle. Would she have to pay for it, and all the scans needed during treatment, and if so what would it cost? She has pco and rarely ovulates.

I don't have any children yet (one on the way!!) but my partner has an 18 yr old daughter from a previous relationship, I was refused treatment on the NHS because of this, they will not do treatment when you have a child (even a non biological one!!!) although this may vary depending on which PCT you are under. We paid £4,500 for private funded IVF think this is about the average cost. Good luck to you xxx

Thanks for your reply lisa, and congratulations on your pregnancy. I don't think Fi would need ivf - I was wondering if anyone knew the cost of ovulation induction, which she might need. Of course there's always the possibility that she might not need any tx, So at the moment this is purely hypothetical.

Hiya,

I have a child of nearly 11, and am currently on the waiting list for IUI through the NHS - I get 6 cycles of this but don't qualify for IVF. I think you will find that your daughter will be entitled to treatment again. She may not need this though as fairly oftern pcos is easier to conceive with within the first year after being pregnant.

Opal, did you qualify for clomid and/or gonal f and tracking scans on nhs? Do you just have to pay prescription charges? I don't think Fi is considering another pregnancy within a year - I think she'd like a 3 or 4 year gap.
