    Oh Ella - that doesn't sound too good. I have had really horrible sharp pain in the lower abdomen a few minutes after dtd - but it went after an hour or so. I hope you are ok.

    Hey ladies hope everyone is good.

    I got my endometrial biopsy today, was not the most fun but it wasn't as bad as the hycosi. While I was there I got some of the results from our blood test and it seems we have a MTHFR gene mutation, I'm not exactly sure what it means as he didn't want to go into it until we had all the test results but he said we have double the chance of miscarriage and has put me on a higher folic acid. Biopsy results will be in in two weeks and I have been put on the cancelation list, hope I don't have to wait for my appointment in feb as he won't let us try till I get the results.

    Cinder, I'm sorry to hear. I hope they can sit down & explain it all to you soon. It must be hard not knowing what it means. I hope you get some answers soon.

    Hi Cinderella

    I've been following along
    From what I understand 85% of the population have some form of the mthfer gene. I hope they can inform you a bit more on how to manage it in regards to fertility. From what I know from one of my girlfriends with a medium case of it, it's all vit b that helps and you can get prescribed a certain special concoction of vit b with something else in it that helps absorb it better

    Hi Ladies, Long time no post - but I read along with you all every day.Cheer you on, cry with you etc
    HI Cinder please don't stress over the MTHFR gene - shame on them for telling you without actually taking the time to sit down and explain all the details. I have the gene too, they found it 4 years ago after my 4th miscarriage but said it was of no significance (unless hubby has it too?). I had my appointment with Dr M last month and he also told me not to worry about it. Neither specialist i saw have EVER referred to it as the Miscarriage Gene or told me it increased my chance of miscarriage.

    AFM: Saw Dr M-Have had my blood test for NKCs done and will get the results on 11th Nov. My mate is a pathologist and said there is no standardized test for NKCs in blood - so the results can be interpreted in many ways. She said the only scientifically agreed and accurate test for High NKC is a biopsy. I mentioned this to Dr M and he did not dispute her claims. He advised the blood test is just to get an overall picture of the balance of cells in your blood. But only a Biopsy would be a true indicator. So in fact i will know nothing NKC cells until i have the biopsy - bit of a waste of time with the blood test. But i guess they have a process they like to follow

    We have been extremely blessed though on another front. We have been given 5 Donor embryos by a wonderful couple that have completed their family. We are very excited but were socked when we were told we would have to pay $850 extra for each Frozen cycle where we used them. I could not understand this as the couple who donated them have paid all the costs so there should be minimal additional cost to us. I feel like we are "buying"them. I shouldn't care about this should i? i should just be grateful and save, save, save - but i feel a bit unethical. Why do i feel this way? What do you ladies think - please feel free to show naked honesty - after 14 years on this journey I can handle it! LOL

    Oh Sorry Ella I should mention that I DO take Extra Vitamin B+folate every day. I have to take 3x Cenovis B Complex and 1 Blackmores Folate+Iodine. Both are very inexpensive and my Vitamin B/Folate and homocysteine levels have been normal at every test since

    Hi Boysie, welcome back and congrats on your donor embryo news, what an amazing gift!
    Personally, I wouldn't worry about the additional fee. It may have been different if the fee was coming from the donor couple themselves but it's just the clinic. Think of it as an unwanted but necessary Admin/transfer fee. I wouldn't feel like I was 'buying' them so to speak. They have been selflessly donated. I really hope there is a magical one there for you. I know I would go to any length to create my family so I am so pleased for you xxx

    Yes we both carry the gene so I think that is what doubles our chance of miscarriage, he said it wasn't a big deal tho. I'm sure everything put together is screwing us over, my body was made pretty faulty.

    Boysie, welcome back! That's great a couple has donated them to you. I agree with Bel, I'd look at it as an admin fee. Did the clinic explain why this was? When are you looking at doing a transfer?

    Cinder, I really hope they can explain it all to you soon. It must be hard in the meantime.

    How is everyone?

    As for me, we had our emby put back in today, yay It will be a hard 2 week wait I think. I'm still taking Pregnyl injections so won't even be able to test for a little while
