IVF: Woman's anger at fertility changes after 30k spend

Logo BBC

A woman who has spent 30,000 trying for a baby has said fertility treatment changes would be a "backwards step."

Proposed plans in Wales would see women over 40 no longer able to access IVF treatment on the NHS, nor single people such as Lucy Mills, from Brecon, Powys.

But more heterosexual couples with a woman under 40 could get access.

The Welsh Health Specialised Services Committee (WHSSC), which commissions specialist NHS services, said it was normal to review policies.

Ms Mills, 38, has been trying to have a baby for the past 18 months, deciding to go it alone after she split up from her long term partner in 2020.

She has lost three pregnancies after several rounds of private IUI treatment, a form of artificial insemination, and is now eligible for IVF on the NHS.

But because she is single, she would not be able to receive the treatment under the new plans.

"Becoming a parent on your own is much more common these days, so it's a huge backwards step," she said.
