Hi Everyone

Thanks for the info, I did a search on AJ, and she did have a doppler, but hers was all ok, Dianne, thanks for that, this means theres some hope there to improve, just wondering, if anyone had this problem, and went on to get a BFP, I think this is more than likely a problem for me too.

Love

Marina

    Hi Marina,

    I have recently had a scan which showed strange blood supply. My DR has prescribed 'Viagra' which I am trying at the moment and having scans within this 'dummy' cycle to check if it has hapled. My consultation to find out is on the 12th. I'll let you know. But I did get a BFP last November, although I did go on to M/C at 9 weeks.

    Sorry I couldn't help much, but I hope everything is okay with you,

    Love,

    Bel,xx

    Hi Bel

    Thank you for that info, I am very sorry you had a M/C do you think that the lack of blood supply had something to do with this, I have heard that baby aspirin 75 mg soluble is very good for the blood flow, and apparently a lot miscarriage clinics swear by it and can help to prevent if this is taken, this is what I have read only, I hope your test comes back with major improvement, and yes please let me know how you get on please, best wishes and good luck.

    Love

    Hi,
    I'm going to SIRM in the US for a cycle this month and this week will need a baseline scan and an E2 blood test(oestrogen I think that is..).I am waiting for AF to show up and am getting worried that it will mean I need a scan on Saturday/Sunday.
    Does anyone know where I could go if this happens?
    I live in Southampton but know I will probably need to go to London for it.
    Panicking a bit!!!!
    Thanks for your help..

    Hi there

    Have you tried the Bupa chalybeate hospital Tremona Road in Southampton, its just around the corner from the Princess Anne Hospital, I know they do scans, IVF etc in the Bupa,  I had IVF there, but this was a good few yrs ago, worth a try, save you a long journey ;) hope this helps.

    Just want to add that this would be a great service for me too - I am sure more women here think so but may not post it :)

    Evening scans would be a good idea, especially if you are having treatment and don't want work to know.

    WHERE CAN I GET A SCAN DONE?
    « Reply #18 on: 9/09/06, 10:13 »
    Hello there!

    I am going abroad for DE IVF and had hoped to use my local clinic for the scan before ET to check thickness of endometrium.
    This clinic used to do the scans for a reasonable cost as a friend of mine had hers done there. They have now stopped this and will only do scans if you take on a 'package ' with them which costs 800 for a range of services including the scan.
    So I a trying to find another clinic where I could go for scans only at reasonable cost.
    Can anyone suggest a clinic I can go to?
    I live near Canterbury so am interested in clinics in Kent or in London.

    Also, my GP told me that she can no longer give me the drugs I will need  after ET on the NHS, the local PCT has changed its policy recently. Does anyone know roughly how much the drugs will cost me privately?

    Thanks for any information and advice
    Jules

    Try Sally Hill at Ultrasound Diagnostics- she works in Oxted on Saturday mornings - in Surrey I know but close to the M25.  I will look out her number but she can be found on the internet.  She works in London as well but more expensive.

    Re drugs- there is a thread on pharmacies with an address for an Italian pharmacy who sells on line- they will send you a price list.  Much cheaper than the UK- but cyclogest and oestrogen aren;t that expensive anyway.

    All the best.
