Well you're right, NICE does state that you can have 3 cycles but different trusts will apply it differently (just look at your own posted website!!!)

A long time ago, In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) was a mysterious procedure for infertility that produced what were then known as "test-tube babies," but today, IVF is practically a household word. The success of an IVF procedures were not guaranteed to be 100 percent, but many cases were successful. To add more, you need a big cash to undergo in this process because it is an expensive one. The price will vary depending on where you live, the amount of medications you're required to take, the number of IVF cycles you undergo, and the amount your insurance company will pay toward the procedure.
