After trying to conceive for many years with my husband, in 2009 after having a Laposcopy I was told that I had severe Endometriosis. (This is where the lining of the womb is found where it's not mean to be and you would need to have this scrapped off very painful) This contributed towards my tubes becoming tangled and twisted.
After several painful operations to give us the best chance at conceiving we continued under advice from our consultant at the NHS to complete two rounds of IVF treatment, both were unsuccessful. This was the end of NHS offering treatment so me and my husband started to save to raise the money to have the next round done. Since then we have had further test and scans and in 2015 we were told that I had Hydrosalphix within the right tube. (This is when the tube releases a poison type fluid which would terminate any pregnancies which may have happened) This had to be treated before any local fertility clinic would even look at me. This made me think about the two wasted chances with the NHS as we felt pressured to complete them quickly and with the advice from the fertility clinic shouldn't have been done. We were told by the NHS that there was a procedure that they didn't fund at that point and it was going to cost thousands of pounds privately. We wanted to make sure that we had the best possible chance to conceive so we took all of our savings and paid for the procedure privately. (Which less than a few months later we found out that the NHS provided this treatment) When we went for the procedure the doctor kept asking which side needed to be done which made me worry a little.
Bringing you up to date, recently I went for a scan and they were unable to find the treatment item on the scan which was very upsetting as I had gone through not only the pain but the cost for there to be no evidence of the procedure. We then came together to discuss this as having it go missing in my body made me worry. This was when we were told that it hadn't worked they don’t know where it has gone and I have the Hydrosalphix in both tubes. (Which explains the doctor keep asking me) After spending thousands and using all my savings up I have been left no further along the line and needing further serious treatment. (another operation)
Due to the NHS missing the Hydrosalphix, private procedure going missing and then miss diagnosing the placement of the Hydrosalphix. We have missed our chance to have successful IVF on the NHS and now need to find the money ourselves as soon as possible.
So with your help you could help us achieve our dream of one day being called Mummy and Daddy. xx
