Im trying to find someone in perth to test for DQ Alpha. So im not at the same stagr as you but we have considered what we will do if that turns out to be our problem. I have never been pregnant either after 4.5 years of trying, 7 cycles, 1 trans with my own eggs and then 3 failed donor egg transfers due to my poor egg quality. We r also cystic fibrosis carriers. The option we are most likely to go with if we are DQ A match is donor egg and donor sperm. The reasons we have decided on this is because of success rate and money. We have spent approx 70k already. Im nervous of surrogacy because im afraid of the surrogate refusing to hand the baby over, and if we have to use donor eggs well the baby is no more mine then it is hers. The LIT we have only looked into a small bit. It has not been an easy desicion to make and i could go on and on for ever about many more reasons for and against. My brain and my head and my body and our hearts are tired of this fertility journey. We just want to have a family and are going with the option that offers the most successful outcomes. There are loads of opinions ppl will have and I wrestle with them to always. Am i veing selfish, what if the baby hates the way it was conceived once its older etc but we know how much love we have to give and we want to raise a child to be a good person happy with life. I wish adoption was easier in this country because we would definitely xonsider it but its just not. Anyway thats how we are thinking and feeling as we try to move forward in our quest for a family. Everything takes time to get used to and you just have to take your time. Goodluck, your not alone. Stay strong i know its hard, i have been feeling lost for so long but I just hope one day we will get the child we dream of. Xxxx
    ECM1981 I'm so sorry. But for once I can say I can totally understand where you are coming from. It's been 4 years for us in March and we looked into adoption but that is a joke now.
    It crazy how much we have been through as a couple and we are so strong but at some point you have to say maybe it's just not meant to be and I am on that cross roads now. I don't want to loose my husband for something I have never had. Like you say everyone has differing opinions and it's so hard.
    I hope you get your dream. If anyone is deserving of children it's people who would do anything to have then. Keep me posted x

    @ECM1981 I'm sorry, this journey can be cruel & feel unfair. Regarding DQ Alpha, if you used donor eggs unsuccessfully then it's unlikely that's the issue, but NK cells could obviously be an issue... Have you had a laproscopy?

    @jojoniss i know, sometimes i wonder if we should accept that maybe we wont have a baby and just try to focus on other things in life. We will tey a few more times, but if no luck then i think we will reach that point too. Im over having it consume my every thought. Life can be so frustrating and the worst is when you see people all around you who dont appreciate their children. And then adoption, all the kids in the world needing loving homes but its just so hard and like u said a joke! I dont know you personally but i feel like i can say to you 'who would have thought we would be in this position?!' I knew having a baby might be a little difficult and could take a year or so of trying but come on this is ridiculous!
    Thinking of you! X @Riaki thanks for your msg yes i have had 3 laps in 4 yrs. Last 2 transfers we did intralipids and prednisolone because i have high nkc. Bondi protocol is what it was similar to. I thought that if we had DQ A match that the use of my husbands sperm would be the problem even though we used donor egg because my body would see his sperm as the enemy because its make up is so similar to mine? Is that correct? I have had my phone appt wih Dr M and am waiting on my blood test results. He requested more for nkc and immunogloblin ones, and im waiting for him to send me request for DQA but am having no luck locating a lab that can test for it here in Perth.

    Edited last post @Riaki because i said we used donor sperm when we didnt. We did donor egg and hubby sperm. So i thought that its my body rejecting his sperm. Is this correct? Its very new and confusing to me.

    Hi Riaki, just to clear up that with DQ alpha matches it is our uterus as host & DH sperm that is the issue - donor egg does not solve this, only (tested) donor sperm to break the match or LIT to familiarise your immune system with DH genetics. Most unfortunately donor eggs don't make this issue resolve or better. I'll write my story for you all later today. So sorry for everyone's struggles & heartache, it's such a cruel & horrible thing to go through. Trust that you are on the right track being here on this thread xxx

    Default Intralipids after pregnancy

    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering if anybody on here knows of anybody that has their first intralipid infusion after pregnancy and was successful? Dr M has suggested that I go in tomorrow (I've known for a few days but am struggling to make a decision) for an intralipid infusion and I'll already be 6 weeks pregnant tomorrow. I'm currently on clexane, aspirin and prednisilone. As my partner is not very open to this process (he doesn't believe it will make a difference either way and is a huge waste of money) and I'll have to fly to Sydney and back the same day, just wanting to make sure it has a chance of making a difference at this point.

    I haven't personally had one

    But after 8 years of trying for a baby if dr M, told me to jump off a building to keep me pregnant I probably do it

    If this pregnancy was to end in a misscarriage (and I'm sorry to be so blunt) and you didn't do the drip?

    Would you mentally cope and not blame yourself (keeping in mind it could happen even if you do it)

    I'm sorry to be blunt and only you know you

    But he is suggesting it for a reason.....

    Best of luck with your decision

    Hi @Lulee- I was in the same boat as you- think I was 5 weeks pg when I went in for my first intralipid infusion with Dr M.....was late in getting phone appt with Dr M and bloods/results and sort of all coincided with my FET....

    Was a little worried that it would be too late also- but here I am 12 wks pg tomorrow...with twins!

    We decided that we would give it a red hot go seeing as we finally had our BFP, even though it was expensive I think I would have kicked myself if I had miscarried again and hadn't given the pregnancy every chance.

    Good luck with your decision xo

    @Ruby16, what are the reasons for your FS to put 2 embies for you? Im looking to do FET Mar/Apr but my FS never suggested or more likely against the idea.
    Do you have to be at certain age?

    The rules vary clinic to clinic

    You can go above the FS and go to the board if they say no.
