    Seems like all of a sudden, every IVF girl is on Clexane. I am allergic to aspirin, so can't take that. Interestingly, because of my internal bleeding episode in hospital after my surgery and because I bruise so easily from Bts etc, they tested me for the oppostite - thought I might have had trouble clotting. But they couldn't find anything. And actually, I must say (sorry TMI), but from my m/c onwards I do have little tiny clotty bits in my AF. And I bled lightly for 6 weeks after the m/c. Hmmm. Well, as I can never take aspirin I take lots of fish oil & CoQ10 - seems to help the blood run better for BTs. Maybe if we do go back to see FS I can ask him about Clexane.

    Letrozole is used in the same way as Clomid, but has been found not to have the side effects (including thin lining) that have been reported with Clomid. You take it for 5 days, from CD3-7 - it works by supressing oestrogen receptors to allow more FSH to come in on those days. So it's used either for people who don't ovulate to help them ovulate, or for people who do (like me) to have a"better" one, or maybe 2 or 3 eggs. It is off label for fertility, as it is intended as a breast cancer drug ... but is used a lot for this purpose anyway. Goes by the trade name of Femara in the US. A girl I know in another group was prescribed it for her FET and they gave her 6 repeats. She very kindly offered it to me and sent me 2 months' worth! So if this month doesn't work, I'll give it a go next time.

    Meanwhile, still no bloody surge this morning. Hmmmmm.

    Thanks Felicita, Nat84 & Earthpower for your suggestions and vast experience. Especially when doing whilst your skin is being stretched out that does scare me but I know we can get through anything if we can create a baby. Those bruises sound nasty.
    I have heard a lot about Prednisone on this thread & my Poor Responders thread for those that got their BFP's from that was that b/c you had the biopsy as well as b/t for NK cells?


    Peonies I was never prescribed Clexane in the past either it is only from learning about all of this from BH that I asked FS for a NK cell b/t & it came back borderline, he said this as an experiment. It's confusing as there are so many different protocols. What's going on with that surge

    Nessika - I've never had a proper biopsy for NK cells (I've had 2 biopsies but I didn't ovulate both cycles so the results weren't valid). My RI found an immune problem in a BT he did (not sure what it was!) and treated me with the pred

    Nessika - I had biopsy and Gavin Sack's blood test in Jan 2011. As the preliminary and final results from each came in my NK status went yes, no, maybe, yes. So my results were somewhat equivocal. Rather than continue or redo testing to pin down an answer, my FS decided to treat me anyway so long as the side effects didn't bother me (or DH) too much. (It turns out that prednisone makes me angry, so that side effect affects DH.)

    Woo hoo. Congrats on being PUPO Earthpower!

    I am just hoping there's a whole lot of fertilisation going on here. Had a temperature dip this morning, so I guess it means today is O day and the pain last night was just gearing up to O, not the actual bursting out. Who knows?
