hi my name is ceri and im 25 years old my story is;

when i was 23 i was told that i had pcos and that my tubes looked blocked, with further investigations it reveled that my tubes were so badly damaged and infected that the only safe option was to remove them. after having this op i obviously needed ivf in order to conceive, but in Hampshire you have to be over the age of 30 to get ivf on the nhs. me and my husband tried our hardest to fight it, but in the end we had to get a compassionate posting from the army from Hampshire to Lancashire. but the very good news is i saw a specialist in st Mary's in Manchester and he said i should be able to start ivf in the next couple of months. this has been a long time coming 6 years to be exact. if anybody could give me advice or some support i would be very great full. had a very rough time of it this last year and would be nice to make some friends in the same boat as me

There are many members here on FF with a true understanding of what you are going through at all stages that infertility throws at you :( FF has brought so many people together and helps form many new friendships that may last many years, I certainly have and my life is richer for it. It's hard when family and friends don't fully comprehend what the IF journey entails and the emotions that go with it, That's where FF comes in to play.
I hope that you will find the links i have left you helpful and direct you where you need to be until you find your feet, which won't be long i can assure you. If there is anything that you still need to find give me or any MOD a shout and we will be happy to help you :)

Hi ,

I am 24, I have been lurking on here again i started Clomid had 3 unsuccessful rounds(last one got hydrosalpinx and damaged my right tube) and then have had to stop trying as i got really sick, unable to eat after an op went wrong as poisoned my organs and caused nerve damage to  my stomach and bowel. Now i have had to have full laporotomy anda feeding tube inserted into my bowel. Got to wait to heal properly and get off meds before can start again. Making appointment tomorrow to see when we can start IVF? Life is ment to try us i think? ??? :(  Looking for some friendly people too x
