    Default Clinic attitudes to karyotyping, NK testing etc

    Hi Ladies,

    I'm wondering if anyone knows about QFG's position on some of the different tests that are out there for us IVF-ers. I'm thinking of karyotyping and NK cells testing in particular, but if there are any other 'controversial' (if that's the word) tests that you might know about and consider worthwhile, any info on whether clinics ( QFG in particular, as I am with them) support doing them, would be great!

    hey there.
    i dont know anything about karyotyping, but i requested from my clinic for nk cells testing and my fs refused to do it, he said we will just treat you with prednisone anyways which is the treatment for nk cells. so i guess thats my clinics attitude towards it.
    i would however prefer to have the diagnosis officially.. but least i am getting treated as though i have it.
    sorry i didnt have anymore information for you.
    Im on the hunt myself!
    good luck!!

    I had a karyotype done on myself at QFG (after two miscarriages in a row). No problem doing it. I think it cost $80 or so.
