    Welcome HopefulCnd
    Let's hope that the addition of intrallipids is what you need to finally get your sticky bean. When are you starting another cycle?

    That's great that they are arranging intrallipids at Maroubra. Did they give you a price? Dr M gold me the most important part is that it is infused very slowly. Good luck and best wishes.

    Stupid question maybe, but does anyone else here 'feel' the embryos trying to implant? The day/night of 10po every time without fail I feel the pulling/tugging and then wake up the next morning and it's gone.

    the other important thing with intralipid Dr M has said is that it's the full 500ml, not 100ml or 200ml and you need to be hydrated too with saline prior... in my mind and from my experience, IVF docs are IVF docs, they create embryos and put them in. When you have immune issues you need to see a reproductive immunologist like Dr M. It's great ivf docs are trying to be immune docs but really they aren't... they don't take all the tests, they hardly believe in it most of them and they don't treat fully as far as I can tell.

    So I personally would always advise to see Dr M in conjunction with IVF doc. Great Dr Sacks is doing intralipid though finally - is it the full 500ml? Genea only does 200ml at a push so I doubt it... would love to be wrong!

    PreciousHeart- Thanks for your information I will take that to GS- I hear what you are saying about the difference between Immune doc's and IVF specialist. I may be wrong but GS is the first to actually find anything (all others blamed egg quality-when I have had at least one blast every cycle). I just hope he is the best of both put together. All I can be is optimistic and hopeful that he is using all of his research over the years and put together a protocol that will best work for me. I do feel that all docs play this guessing game with protocols, its a never one size fits all scenario and its a number game (how many times have I heard that before!) It can get so frustrating as, I also wonder if we do not go to them with this info would they even bother???

    Oeprationbabyg- With this being my 7 transfer decided on a FET as GS wasn't in town and I just wanted to be mentally and physically prepared for it (I had such a bad cold during EC I didn't think it would be good to do a transfer). I find the 5 days waiting after EC to Blast stage the hardest. I am currently going through the bloods and scans phase. I may have my fusion next friday and transfer a week later?? Yep I defo feel twinges and pulls but I usually always have a touch of OHHS so it could be my body deflating (that's what I like to call it!)

    Thanks guys for the quick response- I will chase up the intralipid's he seems to be open to whatever I want but it could be that my hubby is a Doctor..... Who knows it seems it's always a push or a struggle to get what you want either way...... I send positive thoughts to all of you..... I really never thought it would be this hard. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me.

    @HopefulCnd
    I understand how painful it is to be told it's just a numbers game. We will be transferring our 8th and 9th embryos this Friday and hoping that with dr m's treatment it could be our time. It's nice for you to have someone willing to try new things. There's definitely lots if information and different protocols out there and I'm sure, like me, you will keep trying until one sticks!
    Definitely get all the details about intralipids before you commit to it with GS. And maybe keep Dr M's details close by in case you need to try something else? (Which I'm hoping you won't). Good luck xx

    Hi ladies, sorry I 'very been Mia, I have been reading along, but not posting.

    Welcome @HopefulCnd I am with GS at ivfa as well. He hasn't offered intralipids to me, yet he has confirmed my high nk cell issues. He wants me to just do bondi protocol so I was going to do that alongside dr m's protocol. I'd def be interested if he does it the same as dr m. Although for me with my level of healthcover, I only pay the $650 to dr m, the hospital he uses accepts my hcf room cover, whereas maroubra doesn't so every epu and et till next July costs me $950 plus the procedure'

    Hi ladies

    I have been reading along too (so much great advice on this thread) but not posting very often.

    I am due to have my 5th ED transfer next week Friday, Oct 17th. It will be my first cycle with with Dr M's immune protocol. I start the neupogen tomorrow and have my intralipid at Hurstville on Saturday. Plus on clexane and pred. I am getting nervous as all hell but taking much stronger meds this time, so hoping and praying this makes a difference for us.

    I also do get 'twinges' and cramps in my 2ww, usually in the first 3-5 days and after that they have always disappeared. Although, actually last cycle I felt nothing at all and knew it hadn't worked.

    Hey guys,

    I have been following along. Husband and i have been referred by a friend to an agency in Canada..... about 4 weeks ago..... and we have been chatting to a potential surrogate for the last 2 days. I love her.

    We are sending our embryos over to canada soon. Super excited. Sad our journey has come to an end but excited for this new opportunity.

    @Galea: so happy to hear that u have found a solution. I know it isn't an easy one.

    I don't think one should discount what DrSack does. He also does research in immunology and not just ivf. He published scientific papers in this area as well. I guess I am one of those who like 2nd opinion. I am a bit pessimistic. I think treating immune problem is also a number game. Some women carry on with bondi protocol without intralipid (hopefullyanotherbaby is a good example), people like me did intralipid with DrM but BFN (blastocyst as well), some did intralipid and got BFP in first go. And snowy FS in Perth is doing 200ml slow intralipid infusion. Also with saline flush. Not sure if her FS does saline flush before. She is now carrying on. So my point is that it really varies. Of course, i am talking about women with less immune problem.
