    Nidhulaine and others.... I've read everything everyone has said on here about the endo scratch, but I wanted to just ask about the timing - my FS is going to do my endo scratch next week BEFORE my next IVF cycle (ie. ovulate this week, endo scratch next week, jabbings the week after and EPU the week after that). Is that timing correct? I wasn't sure if you meant do the EPU first (technically ovulation), then do the scratch right before the transfer??

    Can I just ask who has had PGD? We've had 9 unsuccessful transfers including 1 chemical pregnancy and we have no embryos left so wondering what to do next. Am thinking PGD?

    We did pgd last cycle and it was definately worth every cent! We had 5 embryos and 4 tested abnormal which means we could have done 4 extra cycles that would never have worked!

    Scruffy - first of all huge congrats to you on the safe arrival of DS 🎉🎈 wonderful news, enjoy your new bundle of joy!

    Abundance - as the others have said I would get all the testing you can with Dr M before your next cycle. As you can see from my sig I have had lots of chemicals - natural and IVF, including PGD cycles. If immune issues are your underlying problem then your system needs to be properly suppressed to give those donor embryos a chance. Three cycles of PGD taught me that expensive lesson 😥

    Switching to a stronger steroid did the trick for me - dexamethasone instead of prednisolone. As per Dr Beer's book it is more effective at restricting NK cell growth. Previous PGD cycle we tried pred and IVIG with a tested emby and BFN. Switched to Dex two weeks before expected Day One of our next stim cycle at a new clinic and we got a surprise natural BFP 🎉🎈🎉

    Meagsberg - my PGD experience was mixed. Personal opinion is my FS overstimmed me which affected egg quality. PGD is a numbers game so they are looking to maximise egg numbers to get as many to Day 3 to test, but we had a lot drop off because they didn't make 8 cells by Day 3. So many eggs wasted 😥 Have you tried different stim drugs like Menopur? My new FS prescribed growth hormone in lieu of PGD and testosterone patches before we cycled to improve egg quality just in case we did have bad eggs.

    Hope this helps answer a few ladies questions.

    Nidhilaine - good luck with your painting and best of luck with your next cycle in the new year 🍀

    MCG Bertie the scratch is generally done before ovulation, it is only later in the cycle they do if testing for killer cells and for me I am odd, I tend to get pregnant if it is done later but most of the literature recommends just before I ululating because embryos are not supposed to like implanting near fresh blood either, now that's what my last FS told me (I did leave him though).

    i also did a one pgd cycle in May to look at my eggs etc and I have low amh and am 37, I ended up with 6 on day 5, 3 compacting morula and 3 blastocysts, 3 normal and 3 abnormal, got told that ment that my eggs weren't great and more like I was 40+ but after checking it out, I am not so sure. I do not have much experience of ivf as that was our only cycle to date but so I would also be interested in anyone's else's results on abnormal/normal as I don't know whether to try conceive naturally or maybe go back and do another cycle. My issue is time, a low amh and also at the moment I feel pretty traumatised from the tripolody pregnancy and I know pgd could possibly elevate some stress and save some time. Thanks

    Hi nidhulaine, I also got told I have low amh for my age but that confuses me as I have never done ivf and always fallen preg in the first or second cycle of trying. It's just hanging onto it that has been our problem. We were looking at pgd after the triploidy preg but our fs told us that the triploidy issue would not have been picked up with pgd??? Anyway dr m advised us to just try naturally again but with his meds and it worked first cycle. It's so hard to know what to do but dh didn't want to do ivf if we could avoid so we followed dr m advice

    Hi ladies, just to update with results from my tests regarding the high level of antinuclear antibodies. It turns out I have a Prothrombin Gene Mutation (factor II). I have a 3 x higher than average risk of developing a blood clot, so will need to stay on the aspirin and the Clexane injections until 36 weeks (then for a few weeks after if I end up having a c-section).

    My OB isn't sure if the prednisolone had any effect on assisting the embryo to implant and grow without interruption, but I'm glad I had it as a precaution anyway.

    Sootymay, have a read of the first natural killer cells thread (title is the same as this one except doesn't say #2). Helenmac, who started this whole area in bubhub writes there in post #85, page 5, about dr m agreeing to use humira and you can read on about her experience. Hope that helps do you have dr beers book? There are 3 pages on humira and I can post some pics if you don't xx

    Timetoshine, thank you so much for that. No I haven't seen Dr Beers book. If you have the time to post the pages for reading, that would be fantastic. Thanks very much. I think there's a couple of other ladies looking to take it, but have been hesitant as well. Thanks again.
