I have just been referred to the assisted concepiton unit at Hartlepool. I have to wait for an appointment with Dr Mustafa. The doctor I was speaking to you yesterday said the waiting list is not that long for Hartlepool?!
has anyone recently been referred to hartlepool or have any info for me please??
Have you tried calling the clinic direct as they will be able to give you the latest info? That is what I did last summer when I moved north from Essex,and needed to find a new clinic up here. I ended up calling about 5 or 6 clinics and they were all really helpful with info about waiting times to see the consultant and then to start treatment.
heya guys hope you dnt mind me joing in. i live in norton and am seein DR. CARR and north tees. im currently taking clomid. What steps do the docs take up here after clomid is it ivf? me and dp have been trying to concieve for 2 1/2 years i just realy want my little baby now its making me depresed seeing every one around me with babys.
hi hopeforbundleofjoy course we dont mind u joining in!! I live in norton too ha ha small world!!
I was with dr wild at north tees , he is lovely. i was given clomid for 6 months and finished last month. I then went to see dr wild at n tees last tues and he has referred me to hartlepool. i rang hartlepool yesterday and they said it should only be a couple of weeks before i get my appointment and the waiting list for ivf is only 6 - 7 months woo hoo!! Not sure if they will go straight to ivf or try iui first?!
I feel exactly the same i am desperate for my own little baba and feel like its never gonna happen!!
If you dont mind me asking, why did they prescribe you clomid, and how old are you??
im only 20. dr carr has gave me 4 months worth of clomid but going back after 3 to see if its worked. i have pcos, before that i was on metformin. what is iui? even my dp is getting depresed when all his mates are settling down with kids.
IUI is assisted insemination. I think it's less invasive that IVF and cheaper for the nhs to try that first. The success rates are much lower though I thin. There's a link below which explains in full detail!! http://www.womens-health.co.uk/pros-and-cons.html I dont know much about pcos, but at least you are looking into it all now whilst you're young. (even though everyone probably says that to you!! ) and im sure you will get there soon.
