    you're welcome SophJ, I think there is a bit of a wait ATM as he had a knee operation or something... ask to be on the cancellation list too! Maybe you can get in quicker if you are already with LB at Monash??

    Hi all,

    Total newbie here, and I apologise in advance for jumping the gun, so to speak. Long time member, but very rarely posted.

    Not a great deal to say, when you’ve been TTC for 7+ years with one loss and no real answers!

    Velvet16’s post in particular hits home with me and I’d love to make an appointment with Dr M for investigation. I’ve known of him for some time and continue to read such wonderful success stories with women who have TTC for so long.

    Can anyone shed any light onto the actual costs associated with this? We’re located in Queensland so all conversations/tests would be performed here. How does he tend to do these? I undertstand there’s an initial test, and then what’s the follow on?

    Am I correct in saying he will treat in conjunction with a FS/IVF clinic, as he is not solely a clinic is he?

    Well he is the bomb lololol

    So Thursday during my infertility speciality appointment we found out we had fallen pregnant for the first time in 8 years

    I am 5 weeks

    So i had.my phone consult with dr.m

    To follow up my blood tests
    He has told me my nkc cells attack my t cells

    Stopping implantation

    By me doing ivf in the past, my body doesnt like ivf and ut destroys my eggs

    So dr m had put me on meds and vitamins which possibly helped me.get pregnant

    But he has put me on Clexane,.pred and pessaries

    I had the script wuthin 10mins of getting off the phone to him

    I was so impressed, i was thinking i would have to wait till Monday and be anxious about ny body attacking the baby

    First time in 8 years i have been pregnant but also have a reason not unexplained infertility.....
    Congratulations! What wonderful news. After so long!

    Hun, how long was it between your first appointment & the script?

    Is the procedure quite lengthy i.e. what with waiting for results, etc?

    Hey @ladyr

    Happy to answer anything

    I booked in for my initial dr m phone consult (as im in qld)
    January 13th

    I explained my history and how last ivf my eggs went to ****

    In that time i had started taking

    4g melatonin (script from gp).
    1.6gram of coq10 (like 10 capsules)
    And because of my mthfr gene mutation
    B6,b12 and folate (instead of folic acid)

    I forwarded all my results from all previous tests.(from fs)

    During our phone consult he requested blood tests surrounding my nkc cells (i had had a biopsy done with fs and he had only tested one type dr m tells me)

    Dr m ssid stay on the meds im taking mentioned above

    Added
    1000mg of vitamin e for lining
    1000mg Caratine
    And a prescription of dhea

    Both for egg quality

    I rang the office every few days seeing if the results were back lol

    I had my prescription by the next day via email
    (Original comes in the post)

    I ended up with ny next phone consult on the 12th feb that was cause thats when the bloods were back, on the 11th i had found out the day before i was pregnant and he also explained my diagnosis from the blood tests (only tests i needed with dr m)

    Had my prescription back to me within 15mins

    I am now 7 weeks 2 days pregnant
    On daily clexane
    Steriods twice a day
    Progesterone twice a day

    I had tried everything to have a baby everything!!! And was constantly told i have enexplained infertility

    So i just knew there was more to it, and little things like mthfr linked to auto immune

    Hence why i felt like i had nothing to loose by consulting with dr m

    Wow, what a mountain of drugs! Ha. All so worth it, I am sure. I'm so pleased after so long you've been successful - gives others like me, who have also tried for so long, hope

    Give your FS only tested for one type of NKC, how did Dr M go about testing for the others? Were they blood only? Everything I've read suggests blood for NKC is unreliable, at best. Is it when they're combined with other blood tests that it works? Must be!

    May I ask, your original consult - what was the fee for that? Was there a charge associated for every telephone call/script, or..? Honestly, the funds are so far from the issue I couldn't be phased, this is simply to prepare.

    Umm.. I think there's more I was going to say but being on the mobile I can no longer see the post.

    Thanks again for the reply, most appreciated xx

    The initial script you mention he emailed, was that for the DHEA, vit E and Caratine?

    It seems like alot of drugs but it really wasn't

    Alot of them very vitmains
    And i suspect i dont know

    That the vitamins and meds strengthened my eggs and maybe the vitamin e helped my lining

    Hence the natural pregnancy

    But i dont know
    Its still a ahock lol

    Okay my diagnosis wasn't i had killer cells

    He said my nkc were attacking my t cells so i wasnt able to implant a pregnancy/embroyo

    Hence my reflection of vitamin e (but thats an assumtion)

    And that was picked up via bloods

    Now id i didnt fall pregnant
    Would he have got me to do further tests... i dont know.

    Firs consult with dr m $300
    Next $150

    I have a follow up with him in a few weeks and that's also $150

    Only happy to help
    I know what its like to just hang on seeking an answer

    Thanks @Charlie74! Hope this combination works this time! I'm feeling positive for you as well! X

    Girls, can I ask where you buy your cq10 and melatonin from and what brand you are taking? Also, would melatonin interfere with thyroid function?
