Whats next with ICSI IVF?

Hey lovely ladies

DH got his second SA results and there has been no improvement so we have been told we need a referral for IVF.

We are going on hols tomorrow so can't get to the docs and i just wondered what was next?

What will our GP do, what will the fertility clinic/NHS do? I guess we are wondering about timescales.

Also, anyone know what the BMI should be - think it is 30 but not sure?

Thanks in advance and hope you are all well x x

Hi hon,

It's a bit hard to answer your questions as every pct is different ! Most likely you will be referred to the fertility clinic who will inform you of the next step, i.e waiting times and NHS funding ect. I do know that most pct's would like to see BMI under 30.

I hope you get all your answers soon.

Good luck.

Big :hugs:
Emy

Hi Rosh
Sorry there was no improvement with your dh's SA :sadface: can i ask where you had this done, was it a private clinic or at your local hospital? The reason i ask is that if it was on the nhs then could that department not make the referral for you?
It does depend on what pct you are under but i'm in south west london and here the waiting time for IVF is currently two and a half years. This may be lower where you are though.
Unfortunately i can't help you with your BMI question but i'm sure that someone who knows will be along soon.

Hi Rosh
Sorry to hear about your latest SA. In Wales everyone gets one free shot of IVF on the NHS. There is certains criteria that needs to be met and one is that your BMI is under 30.
Although when I had my 1st ISCI on the NHS my BMI was about 32, and apart from the nurses jotting my weight down, noone mentioned it.

Good luck hunni xx

Well thank god i got a start on the weightloss!!!

We live under Kingston Upon Thames - other halves doc said 1-2 years waiting.

We need a referral from my GP as other half is with a different doctor and apparently it needs to go through the female's GP for a referral.

hey ho! Let the journey begin - thank heavens for the south of france.... lets just hope the Eurostar gets us there okay!! :snigger:
