    Default scheduling all this ...

    I have a query of the matter of scheduling. I had confirmation this afternoon that I am having my EPU this Wednesday. Am a patient of Dr M and had biopsy last November 2014. Saw Dr M last after discussion of the biopsy results in Nov 2014. I have slightly elevated NK cells.

    Am on prednisone since CD1.
    FS had me on Melatonin and Testogel since Dec., and stopped on CD8.

    From experience,
    1. did Dr M provide any notes with any of your consultations? I take down my own notes, so I should have intralipid a week prior to transfer. Booking is looking really challenging!
    2. With intralipid, is it too late if you have it a day or two before transfer? Cause how do you know if you are having a 3day transfer or 5 day transfer? Of 5 cycles ( am on my 6th ), I've only ever had 1 transfer, and they were 3 day old embies.
    3. When do we get weaned off prednisone.
    4. Where do you get clexane? Do I need script for that? I have it on my notes to take after transfer ...

    Thank you.

    1. No. I just take my own note. On the phone is impossible sometime.

    2. I think some ladies here have done intralipid a day or two before transfer. DrM advises 7--14 days before transfer. I read in DrB book that once the progesterone kicks in, the bad NK cells will be activated. I tried to do it before EPU this cycle. Then, the risk is that it could be a waste of money if the cycle doesn't go further than EPU. I almost wanted to freeze all this cycle but FS convinced me to give it a go since I'd done intralipid and flew all the way out to sydney.

    3. Only when you get BFN and 20 weeks preg (or something like that).

    4. I got the clexane from pharmacy. DrM and FS can write script. ~$37 for PBS item. 20x40mg

    Question regarding clexane. Do you ladies find it the more you use it, the more you are easier to get bruises with the injections? I didn't have any earlier on and I thought I nailed it this time around. But in the last couple of days, all the injection sites are a bit sore with bruises.

    Hi Ladies,

    I have a question about killer cells and was wondering if you could assist me in working out what my test result of killer cells means. I wanted to attach my document but I couldn't work out how to. All my previous FS do not believe in killer cells but I convinced one of my FS to do a test. He did a endemetrium scratch and this was sent for biopsy. I had this done in August 2013. All the report basically says is:

    Diagnosis:
    Secretory phase endometrium consistent with day 21 of the cycle. A large (.20 per higher lower field) number of CD 56 positive cells is identified.

    I've done I think 27 cycles (I've lost count). For probably the last 10 cycles my FS has agreed to put me on prednisolone and clexane. With one FS I was on 20mg of prednisolone and the last one had me on 10mg. I think my first ever positive was when I just started using Clexane from transfer.

    bbhope I find I bruise a whole lot less if I ice the injecting area first. I just hold one of those ice blocks you put in picnic eskys on it for 30-60 seconds first and now I get minimal bruising, still some but nothing as bad as before. Numbing also helps with the needle sting.

    Thanks legwarmers. I think the more I am using it, the more I scare of the stinging. Then, I put it in slower which might have caused more bruising. Sigh. Will try the ice thing. I heard of the elma cream. But I read that it isn't safe for preg women.

    Hi Lisa,

    Hats off to you for your strength and courage in your journey to have kids. I cannot imagine going through 20 cycles. Hopefully you find answers fairly soon and, get your BFP.

    NK cells results are probably left for specialists to interpret. I am seeing Dr M and am Sydney based. Might be worth getting a specialist like him to read your results.

    The first clinic I was at felt like they ignored my queries about NK cells. I had switched clinic since, made sure new FS knows about NK cells. Having said that, after tests and consultations with Dr M, I do have slightly elevated NK cells.

    Yeah, it stings like a mutha on some days doesn't it. And then I have occasional days where it barely hurts at all. I've just swapped from my belly to injecting in my thighs - holy ****. The actual needle going in is ok b/c of the icing first but the sting of the fluid is really something to behold.
