    Hi Niduhaline. I don't know anything about neupogen sorry. You've had a tough year. Seems to be a lot of that!! Ours has been woeful to say the least

    I hope your scan on Thursday goes all Libelle. Good luck!

    Not much happening yet. Glad to be having the biopsy all done with before the Christmas rush. Hoping once that is done I can move into a cycle early next year with renewed hope. I hope 2014 is the year for all of us xx

    Does anyone use Clexane and aspirin together? What are the pluses and minuses to doing this. Tia

    Cappy I'm on both clexane and aspirin currently. Started aspirin day of transfer and then added clexane after BFP. I was on Prednisone since the beginning of the cycle too. Seems to be working well as I'm coming up to 23 weeks pregnant with bub and placenta looking great.

    I'm not finding any drug related side effects if that's something you're concerned about? I do have very high antinuclear antibodies (1:1260) which is why the regime was recommended in the first place - later finding out I have Prothrombin Gene Mutation.

    I don't have any other cycles to compare it to as this was our first shot at IVF, but obviously this combo has worked well for us so far. My Ob (also a FS) has ordered a growth scan at 28 weeks and if all is fine then I can reduce clexane down to one injection every other day, then I'll stop both meds at 36 weeks.

    Hi Cappy
    I have used low dose aspirin and clexane for this cycle. I think I had only ever used one or the other in previous cycles but Dr M wanted me to do both. Dr Beer's book states that they both have slightly different functions.

    Extracts from pages 149 and 151:
    Clexane (low molecular weight Heparin) keeps your blood from clotting too quickly. Aspirin on the other hand works at a different level than Clexane to stop platelets clumping together and causing a clot. It also assist in widening the blood vessels by relaxing their walls. The result is improved blood flow and circulation around the body including the uterus and ovaries. One trial showed aspirin triggers the body to generate its own ant-inflammatory compounds to fight inflammation and disease. It has also been shown to produce better implantation and pregnancy rates in trials.

    There are a couple of paragraphs on side effects I can paraphrase for you if you are interested. Hope this helps.

    Thanks so much ladies for the info. My FS put me on the aspirin and my haematologist put me on the clexane so not sure if I should be taking both. My FS is very conservative so I think he would probably say stop taking the aspirin but if it gives me a better chance then I want to continue it. I know I am creating my own plan but it is my body and I'm sick of losing babies so I'm willing to do it if there's a chance it will help, even if they don't agree.
    Is this madness?

    Not madness at all! I'm seeing my FS here in Melbourne who believes in immune treatment but also Dr M who prescribed higher doses of some meds. Also seeing an endocrinologist for thyroid, acupuncturist and my lovely GP. Even consulted my OB after my bleed. I'm taking advice from everyone and choosing which to take - ie if one says no need to increase meds but Dr M says to increase it then I take his advice every time. This way I feel I have taken back a bit of control over things and know I have done everything I could to achieve the results I want.

    In the past I just blindly trusted my old FS and that got me nowhere. Trust your own instincts, read up on your conditions and I promise you will feel more in control!

    Did you end up having the transfer yesterday or did you manage to have them sent for CGH?

    Thanks Libelle. I think I'll do what you've suggested. I do just want to feel a bit more in control.
    We did end doing the transfer. There was only one that was good enough to biopsy and the FS thought we'd be better off just giving it a go and putting it back. I'm not sure if it was the right decision but we'll see and I need to be positive about it now.
    Thanks so much for your advice
