NICE has updated the guidelines for fertility treatment funding on NHS. Are you aware of what is being updated?
The most important updates are:
-Allowing for IVF after only 2 years of trying to conceive naturally (previously 3).
-Extending the age limit for IVF treatment from 39 to 42.
-Allowing same-sex couples to be eligible.
-Allowing those with physical disabilities that make natural conception hard to be eligible.
-Referring out for treatment immediately when a problem has been identified rather than waiting the three years.
