Egg Share - sickle Cell TRait (divorce down fallopian tubes sperm intercourse)
I am new to the group so I thought that I would introduce myself. My name's
Deborah, but everyone calls me Debs.
A little about me, I got sterilised after having two children and a divorce,
never thought I would ever settle down again let alone meet a wonderful guy
(whom I am marrying next year ;D) let alone wanting another child.
But I was so wrong. We are both very desperate to have a child, complete our
Due to finances we have looked at IVF egg share but due to the fact that my
blood group is Sickle Cell Trait we cannot go ahead. So from what we have

The typical cost of one IVF cycle at a private clinic is £2,000. However,
from April 2005, all Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) should be offering at least

fallopian tubes, or
· have been unable to conceive for three years despite regular
intercourse and no identifiable problem.

I need to know whether this applies to women who have been steralised?
Is there anyone who has been able to egg share even though they are sickle
I have been refused because I am I am tring to find out whether it is
the policy of the hospital that I attended, whether it is a policy in just
Birmingham or whether my consultant was just having a bad day (lol)
We are in a sitatuion now where instead of funding a £500 procedure to
trying to find the funds for a £1500 - £2500 IVF or £2500 - £3500

Since you voluntarily sterilized yourself, I doubt you will find anyone
here that has your same problems. You might want to search Yahoo Goups
to see if there is a support group for women like yourself.
