I am so sorry to hear about your chemical pregnancy I will send you a PM soon.
Btw, if you do chromosome testing, it takes 2--4 weeks for the result to come back. Here in WA, the blood was sent to Queensland. I got the result 4 weeks later.
Dr Sacks is interested in natural kiler cells whereas dr M covers all areas of reproductive immunology and most ladies with immune problems have more than just high killer cells.
If you have not achieved pregnancy after 3 attempts transferring good blasts, have a history of chemical pregnancies or multiple miscarriage then you need to see a reproductive immunologist like Dr M and have nothing to lose by seeing him earlier rather than later in your journey.
I can get pregnant naturally but have been pushed right down the track of ivf with PGD and still had 7 miscarriages in 3 years. Sacks is my FS and I am a Dr M patient.
Good luck and the best move you can make is to get yourself tested and on a Dr M treatment protocol
Also if u want to save time, tell Dr M at ur first appointment to schedule you for a laprascopy/uterine biopsy for killer cells. It's done on about day 25 of your cycle. That way when u have your second appointment he will have all ur local bloods and know your uterine and blood killer cell levels. The local bloods are covered by Medicare and it is only if you end up sending bloods to America that the blood testing gets expensive.
I was pregnant 6 weeks after my first Dr M appointment but lost it at 12 due to a chromosome problem whereas my 6 previous losses prior to Dr M were all before 6 weeks, I am now 9 weeks pregnant again on dr M protocol.
a word of advice though, u need to be committed as the drugs to get you and keep you pregnant in the first couple of months are tough. For me this is pregnancy number 9 and it will be worth it if I can get a sibling got my daughter.
Good luck and as I said before a Dr like Sacks may be able to help you but Dr M will definitely be able to help you and he will not prescribe stuff you font need. I know many Dr M patients and we are all on very different protocols.
@Nidhulaine You are very strong to go through that. It is all worth it in the end. I coped with my IVF drugs quite well and will do anything to have my first baby. I wish nothing but the best for you and hope Dr M's protocol will work for you.
I'm having my NK cell biopsy today and starting to get anxious can anyone tell me if it hurt I did google it but probly wasn't the best idea
Me 26, DH 30
Lap done 9/13
4rounds of clomid with BFN
5th cycle of clomid chemical pregnancy
Started IVF jan 2014
1st IVF Jan 2014: @WFC antagonist cycle started, cancelled day 9 due to over stimulation, 60+ follicles.
2ND IVF March 2014: Next generation fertility ,Antagonist cycle, chemical pregnancy!!!!!
I was wondering if you could help me? Ive been trawling all over the internet looking for some help and came across this thread by accident
Im hoping this has been experienced by someone else - I am due to have the NK cell level biopsy during my next cycle but I rarely if ever ovulate on my own. Ive not been able to get in contact with my FS and its driving me insane!!
I have suffered reccurant mc and have been told that this may be the reason.
Has anyone had the test after taking clomid to induce ovulation?
Thank you very much for reading and if you can shed any light on this xx
