Just about to start the rollercoaster

Postby AJ » Thu Aug 11, 2005 8:35 am

Hi Everyone,

As I have just registered I thought I would intro myself.

My dh and I have a lovely little boy but are now experiencing secondary infertility. After years of trying for no. 2 I was diagnosed with PCOS. However, I do ovulate albeit about cd20. We have done all the tests on the NHS and are now going private to start treatment.

I have several questions. First off, will my private clinic accept the results of all my diagnostic tests on the nhs? If not it is going to cost a lot of money to repeat them all and we are not flush. Secondly, are there any others experiencing 2nd infertilty? And finally, has anyone on this site used Essex Fertility Centre and if so are they as good as they look??

Thanks very much and good luck to everyone.

:)

Hi AJ
Welcome to the site. I can only answer one of your questions. When I was referred to clinic did not have to repeat tests, they accepted results from nhs hospital. I am sure you will get answers to other questions v soon.

Hi,

Sorry I meant that I am at The Essex Fertility Centre in Buckhurst Hill. Nearer London than colchester. I read about Isis but I knew they had entrant criteria so as have a kid and overweight didn't think I would be accepted. My nearest centre is in brentwood but it hasn't got very good success rates because it is so new so I decided to go slightly further afield instead. Mind you I have my initial consultation in a week so they might not accept me there either.

Good to meet some local bods though.

Hi and welcome. I can't answer any of your questions unfortunately but good luck with starting treatment. Rollercoaster is a very good description!

I'd be very surprised if a clinic turned you down because of your first child. We often discuss weight on here as comfort eating is well, a comfort... and treatment often packs on the pounds. Not sure if it's the meds or being worried that strenuous exercise will upset the protocol but many of us find weight gain a problem. There's a HealthyBodies, HealthyMinds thread over on the General Forum, we lightly discuss how we're doing, actual pounds are rarely mentioned, come and join us!

Hi AJ .. Welcome to the Site.

I am in the process of moving from NHS to Private. The Private clinic will accept any previous tests results, but say from their experience you may find it difficult / stressful trying to get copies from your NHS files ... longwinded and often not the right pieces of paper turning up ! Also, that the NHS just usually charge for the photocopying.

They did say, however, that some tests need to be bang up to date or are irrelevant - eg. FSH level results need to be within the last 3 months ...

Good luck AJ !
