Hi, I thought it was time I put myself on the introductions Board. Im 36 (for 2 more weeks !) and due to get married in St Lucia on the 9th June 2005. I have unexplained infertility.

I started TTC back in 1995 with my now ex-husband. I tried Clomid for about 6 months and then went on to have 2 goes at IUI both -VE. I then split up with my husband as I discovered he was having an affair whilst we were having treatment he said the affair made him feel more of a man :!: :evil: :lol:

I have now been TTC with my fiance who's 41 and has 3 grown up children from a previous marriage for about 20 months, We have our first consultation for IVF at the Wessex Clinic in Southampton on the 12th May. I just cant wait to get started now but im also scared as well. :D

Hi Gail

I just want to say hello and welcome, I am sure you will find this site very helpful and friendly. I wish you all the luck in the world with your tmt. I also tried Clomid but it didn't work but I am now blessed with a 15 month old boy who is adorable and I conceived him through ICSI I really hope all goes well. IVF is a big thing but please don't be scared stay strong we will help you the best we can.

Love
Shell.

Hi Jo

Good luck with your scan tomorrow, make sure you let us know how it goes :D You will find this site fantastic, never be afraid to ask a question, so many people know so much on here. :D

Hi Little P

Wedding plans are going fine thanks, 5 weeks today and I will be married, cant wait. Very excited. :lol:

Ive been trying to sort out booking an appointment for the Blood tests I have to have done before I can start IVF, Im getting stressed because nobody can be bothered to reply to my emails, I sent them to two clinics last Friday. arrrrrrrrrrr :evil: I need to have them done and dusted before we go away to get married.

All part of the IVF fun I suppose :!: :mrgreen:

How annoying :x

Do you have a phone number you could use so that you could talk to them direct and book them that way? What a bl*^*y pain that they won't respond.

I really hope that you get it sorted quickly.

5 weeks :D I bet you are really excited - sunny St Lucia here you come 8)

Im trying (not very well :twisted: ) to do it by email because im in Cyprus at the moment. I will have to phone them when I get home if they havent bothered to reply by then.

Only one more sleep until your appointment Little P :D

Sounds like you have glam life Gail... :lol:

try a good old fashioned FAX - quick and you have the evidence that it's been sent, they may not check email regularly..it's what I used to do when travelling and needed to keep on top of private stuff.

Not glamourous really :D My Mum lives in Cyprus, I hadnt seen her for 6 months so thought I had better pop out and say Hi face to face :lol:

I have since had one reply from a BMI clinic who charge twice as much as the wessex clinic who im going to for the IVF and they didn't even say sorry for not replying sooner :!:
