Elarwood- Oh wow the HLA tests are being done locally? Awesome! Quite cheap too
Nattie- hope Dr M can mail you out the BT request form without needing to see him.
bbhope- When I had my BTs with Dr M they did say CD 56, 57, etc. There were a whole heap of numbers (don't remember them sorry). NK biopsy is an endo scratch PLUS sending the removed tissue for testing. Endo scratch alone is simply removing the tissue and discarding it (no testing). The key thing is that the lining is "injured" to stimulate receptivity to an implanting embryo. If the results take a long time and you can't have FET within 3 months... then it would be a good idea to get a new scratch in the month before your transfer. I hope everything is OK with that cyst and great that you've made an appointment with Dr M. I actually find his fees are cheap at $250 for first consult and $150 for follow-ups. My FS was much more expensive!
Pihu- sorry you are feeling down. We all go through our low points when everything seems hopeless. I only had one round of immune BTs with Dr M too. Just because there are others that can be done, doesn't mean you need them right away. Have faith in Dr Ms methods- the UTD & graduate lists are testament to how successful he is and how often he gets it right! I'm really concerned that allowing so many negative thoughts to consume you is not healthy and perhaps you might need to chat with a counsellor? My naturopath has a saying that an infertile mind will create an infertile body... it is so important to think positive and believe that you will hold your baby someday. I hope you can get a new perspective and better outlook.
