Hi All,
My cycle has just been moved forward and I need to have an ultrasound scan done next week - does anyone know of a private clinic that could do this at short notice??
Thanks,

    Hi there

    Mums at solihull will do a scan, not cheap though.
    Apparently the CRM at walsgrave are 55 for a scan.

    Good luck

    Hi

    I am based in hertfordshire, I am planning to go abroad for DE treatment.

    If possible I would like to have the initial blood tests and scans (to measure lining thickness) performed here in the UK. Can anyone recommend a good IVF clinic or specialist? I have phoned several clinics including the Care and Herts and Essex each has replied with a no. It appears its not in their interest to help me if I am going abroad for treatment. Too much paperwork for little money! No one seems interested if 'm not already a patient. I have had an early menopause hence not currently registered with a UK clinic.

    It would be time consuming and have a financial cost if I were to go abroad for the initial 2 hour consultation.

    Fingers crossed there is someone who will help us

    Hi Kaza

    I second LEXY's (hi hun  ^wave^) mention of Care Manchester, I have arranged a baseline scan there for my tx abroad and they where very helpful on the phone and even offered to perform any blood tests required.  The scan is costing 125.  Surely the Care group policies would be the same?????  Phone them back and mention about Manchester.

    Hi there

    Im in Herts and used Bourn Hall in Cambridgeshire. They did my first DE cycle but thereafter all my other cycles were in Spain but Bourn Hall did my scans and HCG tests. They are very pricey but very thorough and kind.
    I did go to the LFC in London for one scan but although cheaper the scan lady there was so rude to me I vowed never to return!

    Hope you find somewhere

    Thank you for your responses ladies.

    I tried Care Nottingham and Northampton- there response was No if not receiving treatment at Care???? I will try again but maybe ask Manchester.

    I also sent a mail to Bourne but never got a reply.

    P.s. I havent started any treatment yet, it's quite scary seeing how many times some people have gone through treatments not to be successful.
    Good luck with your adoption Crusoe :-)

    Don't be scared DE is very, very successful. People who are as unsuccessful as me are a very rare breed indeed. You have every reason to be optomistic about your treatment.
    Bourn Hall are not very speedy about email - I generally preferred to ring them when I was dealing with them.

    Hi,

    Think there are quite a few places along Harley St in London where you can get scans done before tx. Not sure if they can also help with the blood tests but if they can't, I'm sure they would be able to recommend someone who can

    Try:
    http://www.thebirthcompany.co.uk/
    Pretty sure some of the Reprofit (Czech clinic) girls have used this one.

    I'm going abroad in Jan for own egg IVF but will need a day 6 lining/follicle scan so I'll be looking into it properly in the New Year, but the above link is just one I know some people have used

    Hope this helps,
    Good luck!
