Sister struggling to get pregnant

ShaunieShaunie Posts: 13,284 Born on Earth, Raised by The Mix
She’s been trying for 16 months and it’s really sad. I don’t know what to say to help or any suggestions. :(. Don’t do IVF where we live under the NHS and she’s thinking of going private

    Hey Shaunie!

    Sorry to hear she's struggling!

    It's generally recommended if you cannot conceive after a year to double check with a fertility clinic.

    Has she seen anyone as of yet? 
    It may be helpful to figure out if anything is wrong first before thinking of other treatment? 

    The NHS page has lots of information on it if you want a read

    Thank you @Laine. She was seeing someone but I think corona has ruined it. She does have endometriosis. And she had surgery for it but i don’t know. She really wants to be a mum :’(

    Second the suggestion of a fertility clinic. :) Would also say you're doing a huge amount by being there and listening @Shaunie - that's 80% of supporting someone. You're not an expert at the end of the day so it's okay not to have the answers in a situation like this. It's really kind of you to look out for her.

    Does she have a date to see someone again or is it completely on hold?
    All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    Thank you mike. She’s having an operation soon for her emdemotis but I’m not sure if that will help

    She’s finally being referred to the fertility clinic. Which was put on hold cause of corona

    The operation should hopefully help as it will remove the scar tissue,
     Generally speaking women with endometriosis are still quite likely to conceive it's just that it may take longer or require other methods 

    Hopefully she gets an appointment at the clinic soon! ❤️
