Hi there,....Just a quick question....
This will be my first IVF starting in MAY......had a consultation 3 weeks ago, and was told they will write to my G.P about the drugs.. (i'm nhs)
she told me to leave it 2/3 weeks and then go and see my g.p...So i've made app to see him on Wednesday....
I'm just wondering what will happen now,....will he hand me over a prescription for them on wednesday, or does he have to order them specially in for me?,....or do i have to take a prescription to the chemist and get them ordered in myself.
How does it all work?

thanks  :)

Hi Kelly

I got the prescription typed out from the clinic (the private place0 and then took that to the GP. She wrote out another prescrioption and then I had to go and get the drugs ordered at teh chemist. This takes some time - as the durgs are rarely used and are very expensive they don't usually have a stock of them. SO if you're going to go locally, make sure you have enought time for them to get them in for you. otherwise, please have a look round this site as I think I've spotted several places about where pepole get their drugs from.

Good luck

Thanks for replying back to me :).
I'm NHS, slightly worried now incase i wont have enough time to get them ordered, how long roughly does it take?
cos if i'm getting the prescription of f the g.p on wednesday, that will only give me about 6 weeks to get these drugs before my start date....
is it likely to take any longer then 6 weeks, or is that plenty of time?
