The reason I ask is that I had an e-mail off the hospital and it said I would have to pay £150-£200 for the consultation and then any tests I would need would be on top of that. So if I see the consultant would I have to do the tests they request there or could I say I wanted them done at my GP's? I'm confused lol Confused xx

Hi Lynda,

you can ask them which tests you will need, and then say you're having them done locally. I would. I know these clinics like to charge over the odds, and esp if money is tight. Ask for a quote first.

I had to have hormone blood tests, HIV, FBC and Hep A, B & C.

Hi Lynda
I paid £140 for the first consultation and got all the tests done by the gp for free. Hubby had to goto local hospital for sperm test.

The hospital may try to say you have to have them done there but if you already get them done at gp's there's no need for them to do any.
My consultant was really good and told us to goto gp for tests xxx

if you want to know everything and you have time read the other posting on here 'getting pregnant after sterilisation'. Im hopefully having my op tomorrow ( if the anesthetist doesnt have a problem with my larnygitis).
The first consultant i saw was recommended by the hospital and just didnt fill me with confidence, so i did my research and found a consultant who i had faith in- and i think thats what counts. Hes more than twice the price of the first consultant but is doing it by key hole and i think will do a good job, i got the impression the first guy i saw just wanted to take the money and run. We only get one shot at this is my view.
The first dr just said this is what i'll do and explained the procedure. The second asked why i wanted it reversed, did an internal examination, insisted on blood and semen tests before the op to ensure not a waste of time etc, a pain but more thorough.
Where do you live? Im Manchester way but there are girls on the other posting from all over.
