Hi ladies,wondering if any of you have had experience of using any of the fertility clinics in Glasgow? We are looking at Vasectomy reversal with sperm retrieval then ivf with icsi using donor eggs! Feel dizzy at the thought of it all!

Hi Kerrigan90 you could try GCRM in Glasgow my friend had success there and I'm about to contact them. Google them - very informative website. Good luck smile.

Thanks I'll look into it. I looked into GRI and Rosshall but they don't carry out a procedure we need. Seen consultant at Nufield which is a strong possibility at the moment.

I take it friend had good results and experience at GCRM then?

I also had great results with GCRM, DD from first ICSI cycle and currently pg from my first FET using a frozen embryo from that cycle.
Good luck x

Eek it's all so bloody expensive think I'll need to remortgage. God damn NHS criteria!

I've had 2 friends have babies via GCRM.

I've finally accepted this is the way forward and have booked my first 2 appointments at GCRM all happening in the next 3 weeks - eek!

We had initial tests done at Nufield for my partners reversal vasectomy and at this time found out I was infertile! So we've paid initial consultation and tests there but to go to GCRM we have to get them all done again. Hearing of a lot of women who have had success at GCRM but nothing yet of the Nufield (which is cheaper). It all seems to be a game of risks for something so precious. x

kerrigan90 good luck with it all. I am so scared about it - just wish it was a certainty that it will work I think that will be the hardest thing to face. So what's your options? Stay in touch if you want some moral support its such a hard thing to deal with.

Thanks, it is so scary! I have AMH 0.07 and FSH was high 20's I think! My options are ivf with icsi using donor eggs but that's after my partner has reversal vasectomy with tesa!! I also attended the fertility clinic at the RAH and the DR spoke of a drug called DHEA that a male growth hormone that is being used now to improve eggs ( GCRM said was only available to order from USA as not licensed here) so I'm tempted to try this out and see if any of my eggs would be likely to be fertilised.

My other option is adoption which I'm not adverse too, I like the idea of it too.

The whole issue is a head spin. I've recently been through the appointments you're going for so get in touch if you want to moan, greet, laugh or anything. Its so frustrating, making babies should be fun!!!!
