Hi all,
I've recently had a positive pregnancy test after an FET and now have a bit of a medications challenge that I was wondering if anyone had any tips on. My clinic (private) advised me that I should be eligible to get all my luteal support meds (and I'm on a lot!) through the NHS for free now.

However my GP is refusing to prescribe it and they said it won't help to refer me to an NHS specialist who can prescribe it because the wait is too long.

I tried my local antenatal unit that I've been referred to as well but no joy.

Has anyone else managed to navigate this?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

I read this a lot unfortunately and some private clinics really are clueless at times. I would ask them to state in a letter why you need the medication and then try your doctor again. If not, then can your clinic not not prescribe you the medication or is it to expensive?

Hi Staceysm, thanks for your reply.
Yes I can still go through my clinic but it's just quite a large extra cost as I'm on a lot of support (the progesterone injections seem to be the expensive ones, and I'm on 3 a day!). I think I'll have to go with that but will try my GP once more!
