    Default ICSI with CID

    Hi AllI would love to share my story and find out who else is in the same boat as me!DH and I have been TTC since September 2009. We were overjoyed when we became pregnant straight away but unfortunately it ended in a miscarriage at around 8 weeks and have been TTC ever since! We have gone through stages of me having very irregular periods (50+ day cycles), then not ovulating, did many cycle on Clomid and eventually turned to IVF (ICSI) in July 2011. Foudn out that DH's sperm has only 3% good morphology and that I have a low reserve (DH 36, me 27)Had 1st Stim Cycle (Antagonist). At the end of it, we only had one egg left to transfer - but it was a grade 1. Unsuccessful. 2nd Stim Cycle (Down Regulation). We had 5 eggs this time, so much better result - a couple of grade 1s, 2 grade 2's and a grade 3. Had the 2 grade 1's transferred, again day 2. Unsuccessful. Had a 3rd Cycle - this time, Frozen Thaw. 2 embies transferred. Again, unsuccessful. Gave up and had a break over Christmas - started with a new doctor January 2011 - much more thorough. Had lots of blood tests - showed slightly high antibodies. DH had an ultrasound which showed he had lots of vein blockage (probably causing the morphology problem). I had a D&C & Hydroscopy which showed I have very high levels of NKC (Natural Killer Cells). Just got back from the doctor to discuss these results. He said when we're ready, start another ICSI cycle, down regulation and I will also be taking CID (Clexane, Intralipid Drip & Dexamethesone) to help with my NKC. I would love to hear similar stories, but successful and unsuccessful.Thank you and I look forward to hearing lots of stories

    Hi There,

    You'll probably get a better response over in the IVF section of the forum: http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...lay.php?64-IVF

    There are threads for cities/regions and threads for people cycling in a specific month. Or you can simply repost this thread, quite a few ladies have autoimmune issues & will hopefully respond to you.

    You sure have been through a lot, I hope now that your NKC is being treated that the next embie will be sticky
