Fudge... so sorry to hear that. So close but really so far. Just nothing can make the pain go away, but all I can say is just keep trying, change things up a bit, try new or different things and keep moving forward. I never really believed that I would ever see a bub in my arms, and here she is. I've had a number of crying melt-downs since she was born, as I just can't believe that she's really here and ours forever. I'm hoping the pain of three long, expensive, stressful years of IVF will eventually fade away and I can lead a normal life. But then again, that's what has made J extra extra special.
@Bongley I'm not sure as I've never been told it, but assuming it's because you have to decide what to do with viable embryo's at the end once you have your family.
Some could view discarding embryo's the same way as a termination, hence the moral dilemma.
Hi gals ive been mia for a few days we went away with mil for the weekend. Im trucking along 12dpo today I think. I had my chem preg at 9dpo last cycle so hoping af holds off for a while.
Got a reply from Dr W at Cape Town over the weekend (!) but its not the reply I was hoping for... I asked if the intralipids 'REALLY' do help or its just theoretical and only 'MAY' help and couldn't I just take the prednisolone and he says:
"the action of prednisolone and intralipids are very different. Prednisolone suppresses the formation of antibodies and intralipids are supposed to mop up existing antibodies so it is logical to use them in combination."
What a pain considering how difficult it is going to be to organise. I'm going to talk to my FS and see if I can get blood tests for the next couple of weeks and see if the high dose fish oil makes a dent in the high ANA and if not I guess I need to pursue the intralipids.
Next question, who is this Wazza ?
FWIW my highly respected FS (Lynn Burmeister) doesn't prescribe intralipids to any of her paitents, but will support with the prednisolone/clexane/antibiotic route instead. I asked about it for my first SA cycle.
