Oh my goodness, my heart just breaks for you! I have no real advice for you since I’m completely unfamiliar with how these things work over there but I wanted to tell you that you have every right to be frustrated! Hugs!

This sounds terrible! I couldn’t imagine not being able to get the care I needed! I’m so sorry!

I’m sorry that you can’t get the treatment you need, that sucks!

@kimbo89:  I’m so sorry you’re going through this! Do you have family or friends in the catchment area? If so, could you put yourself down as living at their address? Then you should be able to get help from the clinic… people do that to get their kids into schools in the UK all the time…

Also, I wonder if the doctors is being entirely honest with you… I’m from the UK (although I live in Canada now) and if I was ever ill and the problem was something not dealt with in my city, I was referred to a hospital in another city where is was. That happens for illnesses all the time in the UK, so surely they have a duty of care to find you facilities that can treat you. Infertility testing (I think it’s on the NHS still???) then you should be able to be tested anywhere in the country.

This organisation has people you can speak to so maybe they can advise you further: http://www.infertilitynetworkuk.com/

Good luck!

That really sucks. I lived in the UK for a few years but I still don’t fully understand how their lottery system works. Does that mean if you’re outside of the catchment, you don’t qualify for any diagnostic or fertility support? What if you’re prepared to drive in for all appointments?
