i'm so sorry i havent replied any sooner but my email didnt let me know anyone replied to this thread!!
anyway, i couldnt agree with you all more and thank you so much for signing thr petition. i do think its a disgrace!!
k - yes, this all is stressful enough without having to worry about the costs. we've paid up now by selling my dh's very much loved motorbike and getting a loan but if this doesnt work and we dont get any frosties, then what?? like you said, the added financial stress really isnt good. i understand and agree that a line has to be drawn somewhere but where the line is drawn at the moment is just rediculous!!
michelle - 3 cycles on the nhs is great!! the HFEA recommendations over here are 3 cycles on the nhs as the success rate rises after 3 cycles but for some reason this recommendation very unfortunately hasnt been taken up by clinics. i couldnt agree with you more that we pay our taxes and it is a medical condition and yet alcoholics and druggies get their treatments free!!
it certainly is a messed up world.
lavender - haha, glad you proved your stupid doctor wrong and congratulations!!!!!!!! its even worse when NEITHER of you have any children!! imagine if you couldnt possibly go privately...you would have never had this chance and that is just wrong. anyway, congratulations again!!!!
ladies, the best of luck with your treatments!! take care
