Sorry to hear you are still on the IVF train and gearing up for #6. With the extra meds I hope it will be your lucky cycle. Tons of baby dust to you.
I finally have a success story to share. My first transfer after starting Dr Matthias' immune protocol got us our BFP. Our baby girl was born 9 days ago
hi everyone, i have hypothyroidism and am taking thyroxine, TSH levels are good but my antibodies (TPO) were at 700 a few months ago, i consulted my fertility doc and an RE, who both didnt believe the ATAs would affect anything... i had read about the aspirin prednisolone but neither doctor recommended it when i suggested it... not sure what to think about this
Hope that helps and good luck.
Thank you Simpsondesert!!
That link was very helpful. I will show this protocol to my RE and will convince her to try it once on me.
missfurbabies!!! My fs is also convinced the antibodies arnt the issue and since there is no cute they just ignore it's presence! My thyroid is normal but my endo put me on 50 of thyroxin, I'm on prednisone because I have rheumatoid arthritis and aspirin for my antinuclear antibodies which have dropped hugely from 1:640 to 1:160! I'm doing round 6 of IVF shortly with all this on board plus an endometrial scratch!!
Congrats on your little girl and wishing the very best in life for her.
Have got a doubt. When did you start the steroids ( I don't remember whether it was prednisone or dexamethasone). You have mentioned you started it 6 weeks before your FET but do you remember which cycle day it was? And does cycle day plays any importance or we can just begin it any day approximately 6 weeks beforehand?
Actually my RE is not willing to try this protocol so may be I will start it without her consent based on my research and experience of people out here.
