omg Holly ! you wouldn't credit it would you ?
I don't know what I would do in your shoes but I think you should have a candid chat with your consultant @ RFC before you make any decisions. I wonder can your nhs go be put on hold.
Have you actually had the letter asking for date of next af yet? It's unusual for them to phone. Past experience tells me until you get that letter you can't be sure where you are.
Sorry I haven't been much help, hopefully someone will have some advice.
best of luck

The way DR Williamson explained it to us is that letter saying you're top of list also asks us to inform them when next AF starts.  Hope I've got that right.

As for your situation, I'd ask if NHS go could be put on hold but you still stay top so that if you don't get natural BFP in 3-4 months, you can ahve your IVF straight away.

Is this your NHS cycle?  If it is a private cycle, I would put it off but it might be harder to put the NHS cycle on hold.  I have just checked the letter we got for our NHS cycle says "The RFC works on the principle that all persons on a waiting list are ready to proceed with treatment once they receive an offer.  Thus we are unable to suspend the offer of treatment (apart from medical or exceptional circumstances, which are considered by a group within RFC).  In addition we are not in a position to accommodate holiday periods"
Your recent operation might be regarded as qualifying as a medical or exceptional circumstance to suspend you at the top of the list.  I would ring and explain about the operation and see what they say.  If they won't suspend you at the top of the list, I would check what happens - do you have to start from the bottom of the list again?

It is a really hard choice to make, check out all your options before you decide.

The appointment for bloods is just with the nurses and you are just in and out.  Just to warn you in case you might not get all the answers from the nurses.

Hi Holly,

I spent a year doing NAPRO before we had our recent ICSI. I would advise you to put the NAPRO on hold and go ahead with your IVF......it can't do any harm to your body and the quicker you get preg the better. Once you have had the IVF - if it is unsuccessful - you can resume treatment with Galway. I don't think there is any point discussing NAPRO with The RFC as they don't recognise it as a real treatment. Equally, Dr Boyle doesn't agree with IVF. Whatever, you decide to do, I hope you get your little baby sooner rather than later x

Hi holly,

Just wanted to say good luck with whatever you do! ^hugme^

IVF can be scary but I didn't find it that bad, and I was dreading it! :eek:

If it gets you closer to holding your wee baby then it is definitely worth it! ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^
