    mumtochris - EO covered it. I wish I had that list in the beginning!!! I have had a hysteroscopy, biopsy, NK cell test and all the other tests EO mentioned. I am now at the point the FS wants to do PGD on the embryos.

    Girls there are a zillion blood tests you can have. They are simple and can answer alot of questions. As lindy said, some of the BTS can be pricey though.

    daydreamer - from my experience, it makes me feel better to think I have been proactive and will have some results to discuss with the FS.If you feel you wanna get some more tests, then go right ahead. It can only make you feel better to know you covered more avenues.

    EO - maybe you should copyright your questions? You could be making some money on the side . You are right about the more info you know the calmer you feel, so true. Information is power! My problem is if I don't write it down or save it somewhere I start getting confused, I'm going to start putting things together. Hoping October is our month .

    Lindy - you've had alot of tests done too! The only one I've had from your list is for Coeliac disease (which came back negative) and the lap I had last year to remove my endo. My problem is that I absolutely suck at blood tests because they can never find my veins . I'm not sure yet if my FS is resistant to doing these tests or not. I've only seen her twice and she seems reasonable and happy enough to help us out, just have to wait until October when I hit her with all these questions to find out how she really is.

    DD - I don't mind you hi-jacking this thread , seems like we've been bumping into each other lately. Yes, we can definitely bombard our FS with these questions now - thanks EO & Lindy! When is your FS appointment? Or, if you've had it, how did you go?

    Jamison - yes, having tests done should hopefully answer a lot of my questions and make us feel that we've had everything checked out .

    Best wishes to you all lovely ladies, thanks for your feedback. Hope to meet you all again in a pregnancy thread sooner rather than later!

    Hugs. I hope you find some answers.I have had two miscarriages and when I saw a fs last week I asked him to test for the following things. He did blood tests for all of them apart from the Nk cells biopsy. He didn't think that enough research had been done on this test. Five weeks till my results come back from these tests. Good luck it pays to research it.


    Chromosomes
    Coeliac screen
    Autoantibody screen
    Lupus
    Anticardiolipin
    Thrombotic
    Progesterone
    Factor v Leiden
    Nk cells biopsy
    Ferritin stores
    Fbe
    Vitd
    B6, B12

    Hello there

    Guess what, my FS had a cancellation yesterday so I was able to get in a month early. I bombarded her with my list of questions provided by all you lovely ladies. I was sad to find out that my eggs are of very poor quality and I have a very slim chance of falling pregnant again . She agreed to prescribe me DHEA, which I went straight afterwards and bought them which I am happy about and hoping that this will be my miracle cure for my eggs. I had a blood test this morning to find out my AMH levels, but it's not looking good.

    So now it's just taking all these supplements (DHEA, coenzyme Q10, royal jelly, melatonin and Elevit) and hopefully when I do another ICSI cycle I will have an improvement in my egg quality.

    Thanks again for your advice, I really appreciate it. Take care everyone

    Good luck mumtochris I hope you get a bfp really soon. At least you know you are doing everything you can to make it happen. I send you loads of . Did your fertility specialist recommend IVF. What is ICSI? I am very naiive.

    Thanks Mummylip You are so sweet to send me good wishes when you yourself are trying for no. 2 as well.

    Yes, IVF was recommended as we were TTC naturally for years with no result. ICSI is where they inject a single sperm directly into the egg to fertilise it (ICSI stands for IntraCytoplasmic Sperm Injection) and then they transfer the fertilised egg (embryo) back inside where hopefully it sticks and grows for 9 months

    You are definitely not naive, unless you have to do it you would never have heard of it, same thing happened to me, you hear about IVF all the time but I've never heard of ICSI until it was suggested to me.

    After years of being told we had 'unexplained infertility' and me guessing every possible reason, it looks like I've had endometriosis for years, undiagnosed of course, which have affected my ovaries and therefore it damaged my egg supply So now it's just a race against time to try and improve their quality before they run out.

    Wishing you all the best in your TTC journey

    Mumtochris- Well done for asking the tough questions and getting a straight answer. Sorry to hear you've been dealt a blow on the egg quality front . From what I hear DHEA is very effective and has worked wonders for many ladies. I hope that plus all your other supplements makes a huge difference and you'll be UTD very soon
