Hello hello,
I know there is probably already a topic open regarding this matter, so apologies. I am reading forums in my sleep
Ok, here goes, in brief.... lol
30yrs old, PCOS since teenage years (advised would 'grow' out of it....) Started seeing a specialist in UK at age 21ish, given repeat prescription for Metformin- thats it for the next 6yrs....
Had an ovarian drilling procedure and told they would test my tubes while they were in there... all clear.
Along with PCOS I am over weight, so told loose weight and come back. No clomid as promised, no IUI as promised-nothing.

Moved to France in 2009, started seeing a specialist here, what a difference. Immediately sent for tests and told that although overweight after tests come back would start IUI. Unfortunately my hystropingography came back as tubes on left side not so great (although told in UK all fine...)
Result? No IUI. Only option now IVF

My BMI is not in the guideline to receive treatment for IVF in France, this is something that I am working on, however, in the meantime, I have been advised to look at Spain as an option...

Is there anyone out there that can offer any advice, recommendations, IVF in Spain guidelines, Costs... anything and everything lol

Thanks in advance

Hi jbbktc and welcome to the Spain board ^wave^

There are lots of lovely ladies on here who chat mainly in the threads that are names after the main clinics in Spain. I'm sure someone will be along to answer your questions soon but it might be worth having a read through some of the clinic threads to get an idea of the treatment options at the various clinics.

Also if you check the 'sticky' thread at the top of the page you will find a list of the main spanish clinics, some with website links so you can have a look for yourself.

I've not come across anyone going through treatment in Spain with BMI issues so not sure of the guidelines regarding BMI in Spain, there might be some guidance on the various clinics websites.

If there's anything else i can help you with just shout up...
