Does anyone know how long you have to be TTC to access fertility services in Manchester at age 36? My doctor said he thought it was 12 months but I have heard it is 6 months. I have ovulatory problems and diabetes not sure if that would affect the timescales for referral.

Thanks

    Hi Ginsy,

    I can't comment on this much but didn't want to leave you without a reply. All I know is that to get free IVF for us as a lesbian couple under the new legislation we have to have 6 goes at IUI which is meant to be the equivalent of a straight couple trying for six months, so we are treated equally.

    On this basis I would imagine it is six months of trying but maybe it depends on the PCT? I don't want to give you false hope and I would ask your PCT direct to confirm.
