:hi: Ashten and welcome to :FZ:

I went to CARE in Manchester - well I had part of the treatment at their satellite centre but went to Manchester for EC and ET. I found them to be great - organised, helpful, caring..... and everything went dead smoothly bearing in mind it was my first time. I can't think of one bad thing to say about them.

I didn't get a BFP :sadface: but was recommended there by two friends who both got BFPs first time.

When I rang this morning to tell them my result they seemed geninely gutted and have sorted me a review appnt already.

Hope this helps hun :goodluck:

CARE Manchester/Bolton

hi everyone, thought I would add my two pennies here...

I posted about my clinic yesterday following a question... i think they're great. You can sign up at the Manchester clinic exclusively or attend the satellite clinic in Bolton for consultation and monitoring (all scans etc) then just go to Manchester for EC and ET.

Ive just had ICSI for the first time and found it went really smoothly - although I seem to be on a very short protocol that no one else on here has heard of! Less than 2 weeks of drugs - that's it.

Although I got a BFN - it had all gone so smoothly it would have been too good to be true i think to get a BFP first time - I have no issue with this clinic - everyone I met was lovely and I had two phone calls from them yesterday to talk about the result.

I'm heading back for a review appnt in a couple of weeks so watch this space xx

RE: CARE Manchester/Bolton

Hi there

I am hopefully starting treatment at Care Manchester within the next month...

So far i have found them to be very professional, extremely courteous and really helpful....

We arrived for our first appointment 3 hours early....(mostly because i can be a div sometimes, but the other reason my DH hates to be late, so he made sure we left in loads of time). Anyway, they did their utmost to ensure we didnt have to wait the 3 hours before having our appointment. We were seen more or less within 45 mins and all our other appointments were brought forward. They kept us calm through out.

Our second appointment, again fairly similar. Arrived far too early... (there's a trend here, isnt there).... So DH had to go and do his deed and then i had to go for Vaginal Scan. The actual consultant carried this out and again i said, i'll see you again in an hour and a half... He said "oh no, we'll do it now, save you waiting"....He was terrific... Made jokes, kept it quite light but explained everything throughly. So although he had to give us bad news, we didnt really take it as such. He put our minds at rest and assured us that they would look after us as much as they could.

I then got a phonecall a week or so later, explaining that results from blood tests etc were all back but unfortunately the nurse had forgotten to take a Rubella one. So, they made an emergency apptm for me and again was out the door before my appointment was due to start.

I have spoken to a number of people from there on the phone and they've always been great.

They were recommended to me by a nurse at the hospital i was attending for my Infertility. So far, so good is all i can say.

Sorry, ive waffled on...BUT thought it might help someone looking for clinics.

We had out first DIUI at CARE in October 2006. We saw Mr Atkinson who was very nice and gave us good information.

On the day I was actually basted I saw a different chap and I asked him the script on work etc as to do I stay off be normal? He said there are millions of women who carry on working as normal and they don't know they are pg! I thought sure there are but they've not paid £1500 for the chance to get pg and they can try again next month! That comment just pixxed me off a bit. :angry:

Apart from him, the others were lovely and kept in touch as much as possible and always answered my many questions! Ended ina BFN :tears: but that's not their fault.

Good luck in your tx

Thank you both so much for your posts. We are waiting to be seen at NHS hospital as DH's SA results both showed very low count and motility. We are looking into private tx. Care at Manc/Bolton was top of my list and seeing your great feedback has really reassured me that this is the way for us to go. Lots of luck and love to you both.

Hi Zoe

I'm at MFS - mainly because their website was easily found and navigable! When I questioned the fact that their results weren't as good as Care's, they said it was because Care are more selective about who they will treat - ie only treating those who are more likely to conceive.

I had some complaints with MFS in the early days because I felt the communication wasn't brilliant - turned out they had our address wrong(!) but since treatment has started we have been really well looked after by the nurses.

All the best with whatever you decide.

Hi Zoe,

I am currently at CARE Manchester. Just had IUI yesterday and on 2WW. However 3 years ago we conceived our daughter through CARE. We were given an 8% chance but it worked first time. This was for natural cycle IUI with donor sperm. Obviously no complaints there! This time I'm happy with them so far, although I do find you have to ask them questions, rather than them telling you (unless they're just assuming I know already from last time). We've been using the Bolton satelite for scans and bloods, and the nurses there are lovely. Also had our consultation with Mr Willets who was very nice and took lots of time over it. At Manchester we've been inseminated both times by Mr Patel, who is nice too. I've also had some dealings with the embryologists around getting sperm from the same donor, and they've been extremely helpful. I would definately recommend them.

Good luck with whatever you decide,

Best wishes,

CherryChoc

Hi Zoe,

We are private. Wouldn't qualify for NHS as have DD. Went private last time anyway as NHS waiting list (18 months) seemed like an eternity.

Care have a satelite centre in Bolton (nr the Rebok stadium) (the Beaumont hospital) where you can have your scans and bloods done. They're not licenced for treatments so you have to go to Manchester for them. Also you can see the consultant in Bolton if you want. It's really handy.

Good luck with your decision

Hi,

I am just starting out on my journey to become a parent and don't really know where to start.

I am a lesbian in a same-sex civil partnership and we want to try and conceive via DI.

Would people recommend I speak to my GP first or go straight to a Care?

Their Fee schedule is a bit confusing, as although the cost is not an issue now that we have decided to do this, I don't really know what is required.

Any advice would be warmly received :smile:

Hiya H & V

Welcome to the wonderful world of IVF. If I was you I think my first port of call would be my GP. Im sure they will point you in the right direction and advise if its ok to go straight to Care or they may refer you.
I hope your ivf journey is a successful one.

Treatment at CARE Manchester via St Mary's

:happy:

DH and I had our first appointment at Manchester CARE 3 weeks ago. We're having our treatment there due to the refurb at SM's. Had nothing but problems with SM's so were worried CARE would be the same. How wrong could we be! CARE are absolutely fabulous. One of my concerns was that we would be looked down on, being NHS patients, but the staff were amazing. They were friendly, informative, let us take all the time we needed to make sure that we were comfortable with the injections and treatment plan and listened to all our worries. The difference between the two hospitals was instantly obvious - SM's was dark, dismal, quite dirty - CARE was pristine, bright, airy and the staff had a way of putting us completely at ease. I had absolutely no faith in SM's, but the exact opposite can be said of CARE, I trust them implicitly. So far I don't have a bad thing to say about CARE, they've been great. Been doing the Suprecur injections now for 11 days, and have our scan on Monday 16th Nov, so have everything crossed that things will be as they should be and we can start on the next injections. Praying for the news we want just before Christmas so that we can give parents/siblings an extra special Christmas present.

I had IVF at CARE Manchester in May last year (using their satellite clinic in Bolton for scans and bloods) and we got a BFP on our 1st attempt!! :D

As we still have 9 frozen embryos we are hoping to start FET in January, again at CARE. I have found them to be fantastic - very professional and helpful, in fact nothing seems to be too much trouble. Whenever I have called with any questions someone has called me back quickly if they haven't been able to answer straight away. I was on a short protocol which meant i didn't need to DR and I think I only injected for 3 weeks - it was only about 5 weeks from starting treatment to getting my BFP!

I'd recommed them to anyone, and just hope everything goes as well this time xfingers x

How many embies?

Hello fellow CARE Manchester girls!

I am hoping to start ICSI at CARE in July/August and have been told by a few people that they will only put 1 embie back in!! I always that that I would have had 2 put back in and feel a bit gutted about this. Is this true? Has anybody had any recent experience of ET at CARE? I am 25 and it will be my first cycle!

Any help much appreciated

Hi Gemma

I am not actually sure of CARE's policy but I know that they are trying to reduce the number of multiple births. However I am 37 and they let me put 2 blastocyst embryos back in without any questions - maybe because of my age. I would add that I am now pregnant with twins so if that is not something you want then do think carefully if you are given the option!

Hi Ros

Thank you so much for replying to me!
Congratulations on your BFP! and twins!! WOW! You must be over the moon!
Yes, twins are exactly what I do want, and what I have always imagined having, that is why I feel really gutted at the prospect of them only putting one back! I know the risks that come with it, and also know the big possibility that none will even take, but I just really want two putting back in!
I am concerned that they will say only one because of my age, but if thats the case there is not a lot I can do I suppose!

Just wanted to confirm, incase anybody else is wondering about how many embies can be transferred, that I asked the embryologist at CARE yesterday and she said more than likely I can only have 1 put back, BUT you can always try and put forward a case as to why you want more putting back!

:hi: Gemma. DH and I are about to start our second cycle at CARE Manchester, and they are absolutely fantastic. I had lots of problems with the first cycle and they made a point of saying that their duty of care is to the mother not the embys and they will only do what is best for us.

I also had two blasts put back in without question, but again, I am 37 so that may have something to do with it. The head nurse Sue is great to talk to if you have any queries or worries as is Mr Sedler (don't know which of the Docs you're under).

All I would say is to trust that they will do what is best for you. DH and I were so happy with them that we badgered our PCT to let us go back there for all further treatment on the NHS, and, xfingers we won't need to, but if we are unfortunate to have 3 failed cycles, we will def be continuing with CARE if we become private patients.

:goodluck: with your cycle, and we may even meet at the clinic :xxx3:

Hi Demi

Yes they are fantastic! We are under Dr Low, and have found him to be very thorough and very helpful and approachable!! It was him that suggested DH did a MERC test, so it is down to him that we now have our 10 [zx151] in the freezer, as otherwise we would still be going down the donor route!

How did you get on with getting the PCT to transfer your NHS funds to CARE? I have a feeling we may be under the same PCT? Blackburn with Darwen? We have just had our GP request that we can have ours transferred to CARE, so xfingers it will all go through!!!

I wish you lots of luck for your upcoming cycle!!! xxx

I'll send a Pm about the pct and hopefully you'll be ble to get NHS funding transferred. I think it's very important to trust the people who are doing the treatment. The girl from the pct is lovely too and really fights your corner with the panel so :goodluck: . Speak to you soon :xxx3:

hi i am currently at manchester care on the egg donation scheme which gives me low cost ivf . I am a bit upset with the way ive been treated have found them at times rude and feel like i am putting them out by asking them questions . I am currently dr ing and am on day 9 of them injections . I got my drugs delivered to my house and got no instrutions or nothing to show me what to do after ringing clinic upset they then told me that i needed an injection teach ??? no one had mentioned that to me at all . bearing in mind that i have only had one consulation that lasted 20 mins and one counselling which was 10 mins long .No one had showed me how to do anything just sent me a plan out they now does not correspond with what i actually have to do .I am now hoping that i got the unknowing part done and i am clear from now on . Maybe its because i on the low cost plan but at end of day still costing me £1150 just feel like i am putting them out so tend to find things out myself which could lways be wrong . sorry if i am going on just really downhearted about the whole thing now .

:hi: Leanne,
I'm so sorry to hear theat you've been made to feel like this. They're usually spot on and really friendly. DH and I were sent to Manchester CARE by St Marys NHS hospital, because their unit was closed for a refurb. We were worried that we'd be treated differently because we weren't private patients, but they couldn't have been better. If you can, give them a call and ask to speak to Sue, the head of nursing. She's absolutely brilliant and we found that nothing was too much troible for her. I have to admit though that when my drugs arrived initially, I had to ring them because it wasn't clear what should be going in the fridge, and like you, I had no idea how to do the injections. We got an appointment really quickly, and Jo was the nurse who went through everything with us. She knew we were nervous and really took her time with us, letting us practice as many times as we wanted. I found that appointment very overwhelming, because it suddenly seemed so real and the needles were scary. :scared: When it came to my first injection, I just couldn't bring myself to do it, so DH had to take over. I felt really silly after though, as after the initial slight scratch I felt nothing, and DH actually laughed at me after a few minutes and said "you can open your eyes now and pull your top down, I finished ages ago". He soon shut up though when I threatened to stick one in him lmao



Don't ever feel like you're putting anyone out, or that you can't come on here to ask a question,or even to have a little rant if you want, we're always here for you. I've found the support on here invaluable and don't know how I would have coped without all my friends on her at times.

Give Sue a call, and don't be afraid to tell her how you're feeling, she'll probably be mortified to know they've made you feel like this.

:goodluck: Hun, and like I say, we're always here for you blowkiss

Ah Leanne, I wish there was something I could say/do to help :sadface: I'm really annoyed for you that they've made you feel like this, it's not on :cross:

Did you give Sue a call? She really is lovely, and won't be at all cross with you or feel like you're putting her out. She'll most probably put a bomb up someones backside there!!

I hope things improve for you hun. If they make me feel like that on Tuesday, they'll get told :handbags: This is a hard enough journey without being made to feel the way you have. Big :hugs: :hugs: to you hun,and I really hope things improve :xxx3:

Hi. First of all I'm really glad you got to speak to Sue. Did you tell her how they've been making you feel? I hope so, as I'm pretty sure that she'll keep an eye on how you're treated from her-on-in. I know that when we were there the other week, the doc told us that they are absolutely mowed out at the moment, but that's no excuse to leave you feeling the way you are. To be honest, when he said it I was surprised, because other than us there was only one other couple in the waiting room. It may have been that they had a lot in the EC/ET waiting room, but there were a lot of staff just sauntering around the place, and at least 2 of the sonographers were stood at eh desk having a natter. I can't believe they made you drive all the way over there. We have the same problem, we're a good hour away, and I don't think they realise that it's not just a cases of popping over there when it's a good 2 hour round trip! Where do you live? We're in Blackburn.

Oh not again!!!! I am so bloody angry for you :hairout It's just not on. Please give Sue a ring and tell her how you're feeling. It would be awful if their incompetence/lack of care makes you pull out. This is ridiculous, it's stressful enough without all this s**t. Give them a ring and tell them what you think hun, it's just not on. If they say they're going to ring you then that's what they should do. Did they even tell you what time the recipients was going for the scan today? It's making my blood boil. They can't keep you hanging like this. I've never been one for making a noise, but where this is concerned I think you have to. Keep nagging them so they can't forget you. If they treat us this shoddily when we start, they be getting told. I hope the call comes hun, I've been thinking about you, and am now really worried about you. Sending you lots of big :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :xxx3:

Not got anything booked, and unless something else comes up, I'm guessing that our next appointment will be our scan 5/6 days into injections. Getting nervously giddy about it now. Let me know how you're getting on though hun, I'd really love to hear that you've got your BFP in a couple of weeks xxx

I just can't get over the way they are treating you, it's ridiculous!!! I wonder why they sent you back to the waiting room? They normally tell us as they're doing the scan don't they. I know when we were there, one of the nurses seemed to have a bug up her ass, just glad she wasn't dealing with us! I hope they give you some answers on Friday hun. If the same thing happens, just go to the desk and ask to speak to someone in charge. You need to know where it is you're up to, it's ridiculous!!!!
I know what you mean about the petrol situation. DH and I have a 2.5hour round trip for the sake of a 5 minute appointment, and our car eats petrol for fun!! Where is it that you're coming from? I'm sure you've already told me, but I have a memory like a goldfish these days!! :snigger:

I'm going in 3 weeks for my review appointment and am hoping that I'll be starting one soon. I know BraveGirl has just had success through one of their other sites though, and am sure they wil follow the same standards xxx
