Hi I'm a newbie from Aberdeen

Hi, my husband and I have been ttc for 3 years now and I've never been pregnant. We were referred to Aberdeen fertility Centre in April '09. We've both has tests and I had my laparoscopy last Aug '09 and told at our follow up appointment that we have unexplained infertility.
Came out of the centre both deflated that there wasn't a problem they could fix but at the same time pleased that nothing was wrong....I'm sure many of you have experienced the exact same and having to walk past all those pregnant women stading at the main entrance is just heart rendering when you want to be in that position so badly.
Anyway we were put on the waiting list for IVF in Sept '09 and have just had our 6 month appointment (while being on the waiting list) and told to keep trying until we hear otherwise from the centre.....I've read on other forums from last year that the waiting times were 12-18 months and the doctors have said 18 months max but some woman have said that they tell you the longest time so your not phoning all the time........ I just wandered if anyone is in the same position as me at the moment and knows the current waiting list times in Aberdeen?
