Hi Ells :wave:

I cant anwser ur question im afraid, but im sure u could find out where u are on the waiting list if u ring the dept up and ask them. Just out of curisoity, how long have u been steralized for and were u offered IVF .... reason i ask is cos i was steralized many years ago and when i went to Doc to ask for it to be reversed, he told me i was better going off for IVF - which i took his advise and did .... 4 attempts later and 4 years older - here i am, feeling too dam old for another IVF (42 tomorrow!!) and gutted cos i didnt go for te reversal - at least i wud have had a chance to try every mth. have u thought of having the operation done privately - i know its cost in and around £3,000 but cheaper than one IVF cycle , let alone 4 lol ...

Good Luck Xxx

Hi wow havent been on here for such a long time. Found out the waiting list is only 3 months !! however I did need to lose weight which I have now done so will be operated on in the next few months.I was sterilised at 25. I actually went and asked for IVF but the doctor said because of my age (33) I could still go for IVF if it failed.
