National Infertility Day June 12th

Postby Traceysainsbury » Wed May 19, 2004 11:22 am

Hi

brief intro... I'm Tracey the London & South East RO for INUK, I've been asked by several people who are travelling to National Infertility Day alone to arrange central meeting points, if anyone is interested in meeting for breakfast pre-NID or dinner post-NID then let me know.

Also if anyone could put up a National Infertility Day poster could you email and I'll send the A4 pdf document to you. Sainsbury's have agreed to put them on all their notice boards, but I don't have enough volunteers to distribute.

The up-to-date list of speakers and exhibitors at the conference & exhibition is on www.nationalinfertilityday.com

Just a quickie too the next London support group meeting is May 20th (Thursday) at the Knights Templar on Chancery Lane, upstairs after 6pm. Email for more info.

Hi Traci

I was a speaker during the morning sessions and being interviewed most of the afternoon so unfortunately I missed all the good bits I'd hoped to be able to listen to.

What has been exceptionally good though is the feedback from both patients and clinical staff who were able to attend the talks selected - everyone got to listen to their first choice of sessions and so far no negative comments have been received (not all of the evaluations have been checked yet)

The exhibition was also deemed to be really good with clients ranging from ivf clinics in Barbados to Adoption UK

I've also had loads of emails from really pleased women who feel much better informed and aware.

I think the general feeling throughout the day was that all research is good and that to maximise your chances of conceiving start younger - then if you do have a problem there is more time to hopefully find a successful solution.

The question and answer session that finished the day was interesting with lots of questions regarding immune treatment - again the answers that more research needs to be done - some for, some against others very interested.

The only criticism I heard during the day was that there was no mention of IUI as a form of treatment, this was because IUI's don't need to be licensed by the HFEA and the majority of people who contact the support groups who organise NID have had several IUI's or gone straight to more complex assisted reproductive techniques.

The web site: www.nationalinfertilityday.com is continually being updated as notes are received taken during the sessions so you can read an overview of what was said.

if you want to know about specific aspects of the day feel free to email me and I'll find you your answer
