    Booked in for a consultation with Dr Wren :) glad that it's all sorted now and booked in. Now that's done with just some nerves about the AMH and scans. Had them done about a year and a half ago so hopefully they haven't changed too much.

    Hannah - Dr Wren is wonderful, if very direct and quite loud! She makes the two of us laugh (quite unintentionally) and always makes us feel like we know whatís happening. Weíve never once let with her like she not telling us the hard reality. All the best

    Have any of you had treatment at their satellite clinic, The Spire? Itís really easy to drive to from where I live and would be easier and cheaper than getting the tube to the Lister every time and paying for tube station car park fees. Think Iíve heard good things about it before, maybe from Flipsy? Am I silly for thinking you might not get as good service as you do from the doctors and nurses at the actual clinic? Worrying that something will go wrong and Iíll think it wouldnít have happened if I actually went to the Lister for the scans. Probably just silly of me!

    Hi Hannahdaisy,

    I can recommend Mr Watson at the Thames Spire. We did cycles 3-5 there. I got pregnant on each one but miscarried on two of them. Weíve just had a little girl five weeks ago. I donít believe the treatment is of lower standards but then Iíve never done a full cycle at the main Lister hospital. The great thing about Mr Watson and Jacky (fertility nurse) is that you only ever see them. So, they know you and your history personally. Egg collection and transfer are still done in the hospital.

    Mr Watson is incredibly warm and caring, as is Jacky.  For us, it was great. They never try and push unnecessary procedures and Mr Watson will help you to make an informed decision about what is right for you.

    We havenít decided yet if we are up for another cycle. If we do have more OE  treatment, I wonít be going anywhere else.

    Iím not online too often these days so if you want to know anything else, feel free to PM me.

    HTH, Ms G. xx

    I was given a set of instructions by the Lister when I went for a scan at 6+4. It wasn't cold turkey, I had to gradually reduce each type of medication. I would phone or email I think. I've moved house since I was in that position and wouldn't know where my sheet was so I wouldn't be able to advise.

    Hi Sunny,

    I was also given a set of weaning off instructions from the Lister. If you haven't had any I'd drop them an email as I think it depends on what type of medication you're on and the quantity as to how quickly you reduce.

    Congrats on your positive  :)
