    I'm IVF spent and just can't even invest in watching this.

    Questioning how IVF kids are untested. We dont know the effects on them. At the risks to us. I know what happens when IVF goes pear shaped, I ended up in resuscitation at emergency with severe haemorrhage and thought It was the end. No one can explain it. Im a rare 1 in a million and move on. Im completely fine now (as much as blood tests can tell), but still want that baby and blind sighted by that that Id go back and jab again and again.

    I changed the channel.. I cant watch.

    Rubbish, maybe there are dodgy clinics but I remember reading the stats for all age groups on the wall during et! And they had told me my stats at the beginning.

    I found it very frustrating too to be honest I felt like the show was just attacking the industry in some ways. It was as if everyone who worked in ivf was after money, your not telling me that all the doctors in the industry think that way, many doctors do it to give women like us hope and try to help. If you take the hope away then what is left.

    Sorry are you referring to my comment or the show? Stats of what?

    I only saw the end, but the program made me and dh angry too. It's a drain on tax payers? Well guess what, I'm a f-ing taxpayer too so if I wasn't going through ivf where would my tax payer funds be going? Lung surgery and chemo for smokers who have screwed their lungs up.

    I recorded it (because I was trying to get my IVF DD to sleep, the one perhaps I should have given up on). Now I'm not sure I should watch it.

    I hate it when people say IVF is a drain on taxpayers. Firstly, we all pay our taxes. And secondly when a baby is created via IVF then they will be paying taxes in the future too, so their comments are pointless
