    Thx @Skyler I take every opinion on board.
    Does anyone know if killer cells are more likely to attack donor embies than if they were your own?

    @leyshoja have you had the NK cells biopsy done? If not it might be worthwhile if you wanted to get a second opinion. Some Drs will not prescribe the protocol but if you had the test done and saw someone who you knew was a believer then you would at least have a Dr prescribing the appropriate course for you. I was on the "conservative dose" thats mentioned in here so it doesn't exclude you from any harm, just so you are aware. The fact that you will also be getting on a plane and going to another country is something also to be mindful of.

    Hope that helps?

    Yeah, I reckon so too. If you are determined to try it find a doctor that will subscribe it and can properly asses you and then risks etc. Also that way you can honestly discuss your cycle afterwards if, god forbid, it doesn't go to plan

    So much hassle and decision making @leyshoja, what a pain in the bum for you

    My reproductive immunologist said they will still attack as they are still seeing something as non-self, but I think it will all depend on what your issues are. I have nk cells in my uterus and blood. I also have hla matches with my husband so de didn't go around that.

    Your opinion doesn't get shot down all the time Luv.. that's a gross overstatement I think.

    However..when opinions are asked for,we're all entitled to give it regardless of what side of the fence we're on.
    @leyshoja already said in an earlier post her FS here was willing to prescribe Prednisone, baby aspirin @ clexane though it was my understansing that he was seeking further opinion from collegues.

    Meaning a "Doctor" & not a lay person like me (thanks for the not so veiled dig at me too btw) has suggested/approved it.

    Good Luck to you too...

    I don't think your opinion on this is getting shot down, just others may not agree.

    I wouldn't self prescribe either, I listen to my reproductive specialist who has years of training and experience. His opinion differs to my fertility specialist, I did my research and decided whose opinions I was going to follow.

    You can google anything and come up with for and against for any drug on the market, even those that are classified 'safe'.

    To those of you have have done PGD testing to your embryos, what sort of report do you get back? I know its probably different from clinic to clinic. Do you get photos and gradings or do they call up and say X amount of normals and 'we'll put the best one back' etc?

    I did day 3 testing, which is probably different to day 5. I got a call to say all were abnormal, then when I saw fs he had a list with each embryo and what was wrong with each one (they were apparently all random different chromosome issues with mine).

    So I would say you should receive some form of report which shows which ones are normal and which ones were abnormal and why.

    Bongley I would say it differs from clinic. The embryologist who phoned me to say 4 had been biopsied and frozen said they were all excellent quality. I receive a call two weeks later from a geneticist at Monash who said 2 were normal and the other 2 had been discarded. I asked what was wrong with the 2 abnormals and she told me the chromosome issues. They were completely random. She didn't offer any more information and I didn't ask. On the day of transfer I received a picture of the embryo which looked odd as it had fully hatched and the embryologist said it had thawed and recovered 95% of its cells. Now that it has implanted, I have no idea if I called them and asked the gender if they would tell me.

    With regards to selecting one to put back in, my FS said you can either select which one yourself, or leave it up to them.

    Hope that helps!
    brilliant @Corbes thats a great help
