Anyone on waiting list or having treatment already at St Mary's Manchester.  We are on the waiting list and have another year to go but we have been reading lately some poor results, in fact the worst IVF success rates in the Country we read recently.  We are thinking we may go private instead of waiting for NHS because of the stats - is there anyone out there with any experience of St Mary's ?
Many thanks

Hi Jojo,

I've just had a BFN at St Mary's.  Whilst we were on the waiting list, we did attempt a cycle at the beginning of the year at MFS, Manchester - but unfortunately it was abandoned as I didn't respond.  Thankfully I did respond at this last one (short protocol).

Anyway, I didn't really see much difference between MFS (private) and St Marys in terms of visiting to get  drugs and having bloods/scans - and the staff seemed friendly enough.  Obviously we went further with St Marys and I did feel as though you don't get as much attention (which is what I expected I guess, as opposed to private).  MFS would have aspirated my endo cyst for example, during EC, but I awoke from EC with St Marys to find that they hadn't aspirated it.  They obviously had good reason but nobody bothered to tell me!  Also, I went for a follow-up consultation after this BFN, and was told 'as an after thought' that they were going to try me on the long protocol next time.  This is obviously huge news to me.  We will cycle again with St Marys in September and see what happens, as we have one more go. 

When we got to the top of the list, I was worried that we wouldn't be able to start straightaway still but we did.  Also when I rang on day 1 of AF, I know that sometimes they have too many patients so you have to try again the following month - but I was ok to start immediately.  Whether that happens next time..

Good luck in your decision - it's never easy knowing which is the best route, particularly for something so important!

Hi

I had treatment at St Marys. We were told the wait was 3 yrs but called after 15 months. We had IVF and were very lucky as it worked 1st time for us.

Somewhere on here theres is another thread about this so do a search as it may help you.

Good luck

i am not being treated at st marys but i know that the man in charge is Dr Liberman adn i see him privately at his clinic MFS and when i asked him about the stats in St marys as we to read how poor they were he said that you had to take into account the type of people that are requesting and are being treated it isnt simply down tot he hospital it is the patient that matters there health etc etc.

Hope this helps

best wishes

Sara M . Hello I have just read your bit on how long you waited on the list for St. Marys and me and the hubby were just wondering how long ago this was. We were told in March this year that we would have to wait at least 3yrs. Many thanks shepherdess from Bolton.

Shepherdess,


We might have to wait a long time and even then nothing may happen,
but as long as I have you I am as happy as I need to be because I love you more than I can ever tell you.
