Just wondered if you girls with NK cells also have issues building up a thick enough lining. I have read that NK cells can attack lining... I have had 3 extremely early MC last year(30,27,26 days) trying naturally, now onto IVF but concerned as I only got 5 eggs at EPU (4 fertilised), one transferred at day 3 and 2 still going as of day 4...all grade c

    i am 35, hubbie 31 - both homo MTHFR but otherwise nothing else detected except lining can't get above 8mm. AMH of 8 so low egg reserve
    Hi Simoney. My lining is always around 8 too. Has been for years. Never got thicker than that apart from last cycle it went to 9.5 for some reason.

    Plz advise...

    Thanks
    Pihu I had my biopsy with Dr M just before Christmas last year and my period went missing for three months. dr M didn't seem concerned when I asked him about it. He put me on provera and progynova to bring it on but that didn't work.

    Thanks ladies for answering my question re the dex. I was just curious as I've only been on pred and Dr M switched me to dex this cycle.

    Bertie I'm not sure what could be happening with you. I would only be really concerned if there was pain also but still definitely worth checking it out. The joys of being a woman hey

    Bbhope.... well, I think I call this amount of blood more than "light". My FS always takes a biopsy sample before he does the endo scratch, at the same time, while he's in there! I've been thinking if the endo scratch this time was different to the ones the FS did on the other occasions, and I'm thinking "yes", for three reasons,
    1) this time he remarked "there's not much material in there" (why didn't I ask him what that meant?)
    2) he kind of did it twice, first time, then repositioned the thing and did it again.
    3) there was definite a "scratching" sensation for a good 5 seconds or so, kind of like rubbing across a washboard, whereas on previous occasions, all I've ever felt was one sharp stabbing pain when he grabs the biopsy material, but never the scratch part.

    Both times, I was knocked out. I cant imagine myself being awake for it after seeing how much blood i got on the bed afterward. That's the reason i thought it is more than a scratch and lining would have been damaged. Local FS did say that he did couple positions. It makes sense that they didnt want u to try on the month of biopsy. I wont argue if that gets people pregnant. some FS really doesn't want to take the chance of going in there when the embryo (if any) is already in the womb on day 21. I was reminded specifically few times not to try (not that it will happen for us naturally anyway!!).

    Bbhope.... hmmmm, all of my endo scratches (which included taking biopsy samples) were done just like a pap smear, and apart from a bit of pain, were fine. Maybe you've had something extra done, in addition to the endo scratch and a simple sample biopsy taken?

    My understanding is that the endo scratch and biopsy is done on the cycle immediately before the IVF cycle, so for me this has always been: d21 scratch/biopsy, d28 AF comes again, start IVF cycle, approximately d18-21 ET takes place.

    And, I think this bleeding is AF, as I've now had some pain and took a panadol, so that's a good enough symptom for me. The weirdness of how the first two days presented, I'll just blame on the endo scratch, so either way, now I will be phoning the clinic in the morning and booking in my FET. I'm just hoping now, what with it being a weird AF, and coming 6 days early, that it's not going to jinx the FET. Hang on, wait there, I've only had BFNs, so it can't jinx that and be worse!! Lol :-))

    Hope168, for MTHFR Homo I take 1000mcg folate in the form of Metafolin, this is the active form of folic acid. Our bodies don't breakdown folate, so I buy Metafolin which is folate that has already been broken down. Your Dr will probably recommend a high dose of folic acid like Megafol but only a bit of it will get through that's why I buy Metafolin. I buy it from iherb in USA. I also take vitamin b6 and vitamin b12 as well as a complex B vitamin.
    With the Homo part it increases your chances of thrombosis and increased Homocysteine levels so I also take 100mg Aspirin. I think this bit is the difference between hetro and homo MTHFR.
