    Hi ladies, sorry I've been mia.
    Unfortunately I don't have any good news, it's been 6 months since LIT and still no bfp. It had been an emotional roller coaster and dh and I are really struggling.
    We have decided because our LIT treatment is now nul and void (past the 6 month period) we are going down the donor sperm path. Dh is fine with it but it took me a little longer to wrap my head around it. Mainly because I felt like a failure and I was worried baby would be treated differently if people knew. But I am feeling much better now and know that dna doesn't matter it will be our baby.
    We have our donor counselling this month and if all goes to plan we will do IUI next month.
    How is everyone else going? Any babies on the way?

    Hi carlar78

    Did you consider seeing Dr M in Sydney? He treats more aggressively than Dr L.

    @Carlar78

    I didn't realise it was such a fast process to get donor sperm. Will you know specifics on the donor?
    I'm glad that you're doing well now, such a ****ty thing to be going through...

    We didnt consider going anywhere else because we are emotionally done. We need this all to be over and have a baby in our arms. I don't think I could physically handle a more aggressive protocol than Dr L.
    Stay tuned for a bfp next month ladies, this is it for me.
    Oh and dizzy apparently with Monash IVF there is no wait and you get specifics about the anonymous donor.

    All the best with your next cycle @Carlar78.

    I hope once you have that beautiful Bub in your arms, the last thing you will think about is dna. That little Bub will be all yours and you will be its parents no matter what. xx

    As for me I am fortunate enough to have finally fallen pregnant after 7 cycles. I am currently 8w1d.

    I'm now having intralipids every two weeks, until 13w.

    I hope you ladies all have great luck soon. xx

    @rivi sorry for the late reply.

    I was in the same boat as you a month ago and was majorly stressed.

    Since then, I've been researching heaps and had some great advice from girls on this post. I strongly urge you to research Dr Braverman and Dr Matthias. Also, check out the previous posts on this thread. There is some useful information. Keep in mind that Dr Lolatgis is one of a few IVF fertility specialists that test on immune - so he's leading the way in that space… Matthias and Braverman are specialist Immunologists… whilst they may prescribe the same/similar drugs, they may have a different protocol and also do more in depth tests. Also seems that DQ alpha can be treated… check out info on Bravermans site, or through links posted previously on this post. PM me if you need any further info

    @freakedout44
    Massive congratulations!! amazing news!
    If you dont mind, could you please tell us what protocol you used? Was it the same Intralipids, steroids and clexane or did you seek out another doctor and get different treatment?
    @Carlar78 I know what you mean with the emotional side of things, and like other said, it's only dna and it wont matter once you have that baby.

    @Dizzy82 - this cycle was a FET from our cycle back in feb.

    Back in February, I was on the Colorado protocol including, dexo, melatonin, aspirin, intralipids, clexane, orgalutran etc.

    I had also had the LIT treatment a few weeks before starting.

    It was our first cycle at Monash with dr nick and we produced 2 of our first ever day 5 blastys.

    Unfortunately the emby from that cycle did not take, so we took a few months off, went to Japan and then decided to squeeze in one more cycle before our 6months of LIT treatment ran out.

    For my FET I again needed intralipids, clexane, aspirin, dexo and progesterone.

    I will be on everything until 13 weeks (with intralipids every two weeks) except aspirin which I stay on until 34 weeks.

    I think our LIT treatment came to its end of effect a few weeks ago, but I was told not to worry about that. I guess I'm far enough along that it doesn't matter?

    Don't give up hope ladies. After 6 cycles and not one BFP, I really thought we had no hope for our 7th cycle. Yet here I am...8 weeks pregnant!

    I hope you all get your turn soon! xx
