Funding for Hampshire/cost of private clinic?

Hi ladies..

I have just had a NHS funded IVF cycle which sadly didnt work :sadface: As im aware we only get one cycle funded... so unfair. So just wondered if any of you have ks had this happen and then carried on to have a 2nd cycle private and where? If so what is a realistic cost to be paying? i live in Southampton so really would like to stay close to there.

look forward to hopefully hearing a positive that its not to costly xfingers thanks xx twinkle

Hi twinkletoots, just read your post from March, sorry to hear it didn't work for you first time round. We live in Dorset and the waiting list there for 1 cycle is 2 years or 3 for icsi, so when we started on this journey back in 06, we looked at going private and ended up in Salisbury! They suggested we write to the Dorset PCT and ask for funding to have the treatment at Salisbury and they offered us 2 funded cycles, with access to the 2nd cycle withdrawn if the 1st ended with a live birth, which we were extremely blessed to have. Might be worth going to Salisbury (all the staff there are brilliant) and seeing if your PCT will fund a cycle there - got to be worth asking???? Take care and good luck xfingers
