Felicita – thanks for that great info on NK cells – so well explained!! Can I just clarify this bit...
Uterine biopsies for NK cells are usually done at CD21 so as to get a picture of what's likely to be happening at implantation time. Both the number and activity (how good they are at killing) of the NK cells can be assessed. Activity might be more important than number. Some places offer a blood test, also done on or around CD21, to assess NK cell activity.
Does this mean the blood test is more accurate than the biopsy ? Does the biopsy assess activity too?
Hope your most handsome 6 spermies do their thing, Does this mean you’ve had EPU? Good luck
EO – good luck for your NK biopsy – hope all goes well. Can’t believe you are halfway thru your break already – you will be back on the bandwagon before you know it!!! No, FS doesn’t think melatonin will help, I’m at the point where I would try anything really!
Nat – glad the biopsy went well, how long do results take?
Lindylou - hope ur keeping warm and getting some more shopping done!
Starfish – sending loads of good egg vibes and a downpour of babydust your way – hope all on track.
Hi to everyone else
AFM – started an antagonist cycle last night, CD2 results weren’t as good as last month but still in range and FS still thinks its worth a go. Hoping the antagonist produces better results than the down reg. Had the fluvax on Monday and had a really bad reaction to it so have been feeling shocking, I’m sure the IVF drugs will help with that, not!!
