Kipatte: We asked for a free go at IVF, but we were told we were not eligible as DH has grown up children of his own....I was annoyed bacause although I think the world of them, they are not mine and they never lived with us, although we are close.
I asked if we could egg share to make our IVF cheaper, but I am too old so my eggs would be poorer quality.
I asked if I was a lesbian if I could then get treatment on the NHS and was told YES.....totally unbelievable, don't get me wrong, I am not against same sex paternships having children, but the whole thing does seem a bit unfair.
We did look into wether to go to the carribean for a treatment, and have a relaxing holdiay too, the cost included reflexology, acupuncture, 5 star accomodation and IVF treatment, cheaper than just the treatment in the UK, and there success rates were published as greater than here....BUT DH had PESA and his sperm was frozen here, so that would mean he would have to have it flown over...more cost...or go through it again..he said NO!!!! Understandable.
Happy 4th July!
