I'm struggling to find clinics that offer mild IVF and any I can find I'm finding it hard to get a good idea of overall costs. Does anyone have any recommendations please? Anywhere in London, Hertfordshire or Bedfordshire preferably. Not ABC of Create as I've already looked into them.

I'm not sure what mild ivf is but I'm currently 13 weeks pregnant (tomorrow) after my first cycle with Herts and Essex Fertility. They were so open and friendly in all our appointments and run through all the different options in our first appointment that lasted 2 hours! The consultant would literally have sat there all day with us I think going through all our million questions deciding which route to go down

Throughout the whole process they have just been so good. Been v lucky as it seems like a minefield out there!

Thanks @PrayingandHoping and congratulations! I rang them earlier and unfortunately they don't offer mild ivf otherwise they would have definitely been worth considering.

I'm with Create Birmingham and looked all over West Midlands and there was no one else offering it. Although many normal ivf clinics might offer short protocol if you ask which is very similar

I did mild ivf but don’t live in the UK. It’s not really similar to the short cycle at all, which I also did twice first. (Mild IVF worked amazingly for me in terms of egg quality and led to a baby and two frozen embryos from 4 eggs.)
It’s completely incomprehensible that all clinics can’t offer it. It’s conventional ivf drugs, just tiny doses, plus clomid. The rest of the process is the same. I’m sorry you can’t find anywhere so far and I hope someone will be along with a recommendation soon.

Hi Marmite,
CREATE have clinics in London (Wimbledon & St Paul's) and Herts (St Albans) too and are Mild IVF specialists: Good luck!

Thanks everyone. I've already looked into Create but was looking for some other possibilities. Seems mad that more clinics don't offer mild IVF more openly.
