IVF Ocean Suite Plymouth

Hi all,
my husband and I are attending what I hope is our consent appointment in 2 weeks time at the ocean suit in derriford in Plymouth , can anyone tell me how long after it takes to start treatment?

They have said we'll need IVF with ICSI due to male based infertility. Can anyone briefly discuss me through the meds process. I have a general idea but not specific to Plymouth. eg-starting with the pill I've heard? I understand that everyone's may be slightly different but just want some general information.

Would appreciate any input. Thank you

Hi Rose, I am at OS, I was there today picking up my drugs :) We are ICSI too and were incredibly lucky that we were successful first time and then with our third lot of frozen embies and now have 2 beautiful girls.

We are private so weren’t on a list but don’t think it’s made any difference to timing after consent. Ours was on the 21st February, we are on long protocol, I think that is generally UA’s favoured way from what I gather. I have been on the combined pill since 19th March and will start Buserelin injections next Tuesday, 17th, then have first scan on the 2nd May and hopefully start stimming injections then and then :pray: EC w/c 14th May.

Any questions ask away, will help if I can at all xxx
