Hi .. no, we decided after many weeks of trying to reach the nurse there, the language barrier and after IB asking for loads of extra scans (including mammography and extra bloods) also with the UK leaving the EU) we would go to Manchester Fertility as many good reports from friends there and online. So far the service is excellent .. so much better than wasn’t for us but may be fab for you. I need an organised clinic with good response to feel relaxed IB were hard to get hold of and get answers from with Spanish answer phone messages and up to two days to reply.

Hope everything works out for you. Best of wishes 😊

Ah interesting on the response delays , been hearing similar notes for IB .
Feel like when clinics get this popular service level drops.
Thank you and good luck with Manchester !
