Ovulation induction at the Bridge or Guys & St Thomas'

Hi I am new to this so sorry if I post anything dumb!

I have polycystic ovaries and been ttc for 5 months. Through BBT charting and ovulation kit testing have discovered I am having cycles of 40 days plus with leuteal phase that is too short, though I am ovulating, just not regularly. My partner also had borderline sperm at his last test. I don't just want to take clomid but I want to go to a clinic that will support me and carry out cycle monitoring etc.

I am looking at Bridge Centre & Guys & St Thomas assisted conception unit, self funded. Has anyone had ovulation induction at any of these clinics? What did you think?

Hello Lily and welcome to FZ
There are threads on the two clinics that you are looking at and both have very good feedback for IVF, although i'm not aware of any members who have had ovulation induction there. I have edited the the title of this thread hoping that it will be seen by more people who can help you.

Here are the links for the existing clinic threads:
Guys & St Thomas', London
The Bridge Centre, London

ICSI May 08 - BFP

I haven't had ovulation induction but I have had 2 x ICSI and 1 x FET at Guys and I cannot recommend them highly enough. As you are self funded, you can opt to pay a little bit extra for the personal attention of the head of the ACU, and you will always be seen by him and/or his nurse rather than whoever is on duty on any particular day. He was absolutely brilliant and I had his mobile number and email address and was able to contact him at any time. It made a massive difference since TTC is hard enough and it was very reassuring to always be able to make contact with someone when I needed to.
