    Smile Getting colds/viruses during TWW

    Hi ladies,

    Wondering if getting a cold (no fever ) before transfer day and then another cold during the TWW whilst already on immune suppressing meds means all the NK killer cells came out to fight the virus and no doubt the embryo?
    I've read mixed opinions: some say its fine to get a cold as these nk cells will go towards the virus and leave the embryo alone? Others say the opposite.

    I'm on a protocol from Dr N Lolatgis years ago - 1mg dex,
    Clexane, aspirin, intralipids, prog oil ( however on crinone twice a day as my FS here won't prescribe me the oil). I tested years ago and didn't have high Nk but Nick likes to throw everything at you.

    Don't these meds suppress our immune system so we are more easily prone to catch colds anyhow so if catching a cold is detrimental to us, it's a catch 22?

    Does anyone know where I can buy progesterone in oil without a script with the needles.
    Thanks so much

    I'm really sorry, I don't know the answer to any of this but I know several people who have been sick in their tww and got pregnant!

    Yeah the Dex will lower your immune system. It's a good thing though
    Because your immune system has been suppressed, it is less likely to recognize the embryo as a foreign body and reject it.

    I got a cold in my tww (3rd stim cycle) around 8dpo and I got my bfp.
