My next fertility appointment is in November. I have undergone all the required tests and have taken 6 months of Clomid.
At the next appointment, I have been told I will be referred for IVF.
Has anyone in the South Wales area been recently referred for IVF and how long was the wait and what was the process?
Do you get a choice of clinics or is it the one that's closest to your area?

Thanks in advance. Would appreciate any information.

@Roobles79 thanks so much for responding.
Did you have to have more tests once you were referred? Do they offer different hospitals? Is it 6 months to actually start the treatment or be seen?
So sorry for all the questions, just haven't got anyone else to ask.
Really wish you the best of luck and really hope you're seen soon and get started with your treatment! xx

It was the heath for me, and yes had to have more bloods and scans then treatment started about 6 weeks or so later. They are really nice there. I didn't read into it too much just take it as it comes. Good luck with it all and fingers crossed for you x

Hi I had my gynecologist appointment in July referring me for IVF appointment. I was expecting to wait up to 6 months but got a call early September asking if i was happy going to Port Talbot IVF clinic as they had a shorter list. So i went to Port Talbot for my appointment. Unfortunately my egg quality is to low to qualify for IVF. Good luck and im sure you wont be waiting too long for your appointment.
