Newbie very confused

Hi All,

I hve received confirmation that me and my DH are accepted for 1 cycle of IVF. We have been asked to decide which centre we want to use, either Care or St Marys.

I dont know which one to go with any advice would be great. I am so nervous me and my husband have been trying for so long i dont want to make the wrong decision

Hi there

Great news that you can start IVF treatment. I have had IVf at St Marys and Care. Can I ask how the question has been broached to you? Are you paying for treatment or is it on the NHS? I'm just a bit confused as St Marys is NHS and Care is Private.
