Charlotte met her partner when she was 35, after coming out of a long term relationship, and they started trying for a family straightaway. However NHS guidelines meant it was a year before they had their first round of NHS funded IVF. Charlotte discovered she had low ovarian reserve. The clinic they first chose via online research in Prague turned out to be a nightmare, refusing to co-operate with their London clinic when problems arose. The stress of cancelled transfers was compounded by the pandemic. They needed certainty so, now aged 43, decided to invest in a guarantee transfer programme with another provider, Redia IVF, working with Clinica Tambre in Madrid. Charlotte’s first transfer was successful and by 19 March she will be 22 weeks pregnant. Charlotte will talk about coming to terms with using donor eggs, the choice of known or anonymous donors and. what she learned along the way.
