Starting IVF in Scotland

We had our screening appointment last week when both of our bloods were taken, now waiting to receive the results and start IVF in January.

Is there anyone here referred to Ninewells, Dundee or anywhere else in Scotland? Would love to hear from anyone who's had IVF or ICSI recently or about to embark!

How are you doing?

We have been referred to Ninewells for IVF and have our first appointment on 4th Feb. Can you tell me what happens during the first app please? Is this the screening app or does that follow later?

Hi @Lily999

There's a thread on the infertility board called 'infertility investigations/IVF in Scotland' that might be helpful for you. Not sure how to share a link xx

Thank you @BelleBox19!

@JenniferRo28 the first one will be when both you and your partner have to attend, they will do a smoke test, measure your BMI, fill in some forms and take blood from both of you. If everything is ok you will start within 3months of that appointment and things will speed up smile

@Lily999 thank you for the info. Im looking forward to next weeks appointment. Its been a long wait since our referral in October and its been a bit of a struggle mentally and emotionally.

Im following your journey on the other thread and wish you the best of luck xx
