hancamp My protocol last time was as follows:
Clexane 2 weeks prior to transfer
Progynova from CD1 (medicated cycle)
Dexamethasone x3 per dat then 4 when BFP
Progrsterone 200mg per day 5 day prior to transfer, then 800mg from transfer and then got upped to 1200mg after first BT
I had intralipids twice once at 4 weeks and one at 8 weeks, but I missed the before one because of EPU and transfer confusion
We had done LIT treatment in Sept and October 2015.
This cycle is pretty much the same but we added Neupogen and I did my intralipids 2 weeks prior to transfer. We will then probably do IVIG and intralipids mix if BFP.
My BT is Monday but I will do a HPT tomorrow at 9dp5dt.
When is your appointment?
CongratS @BB77! Great news 😊

Congratulations to your bAby boy.
I am in a situation where I am hoping someone on here can help me.
I followed ivf clinic protocol for NK cell. But at 6 weeks pregnant I got nervous that it wasn't thorough enough. So I booked in with DR M. I also had already arranged different OB.
I am now 13 weeks, and had intralipid last night. In the brief 5 mins he visits, I bombarded DR M with question of my NK treatment plan. And he mentioned seeing him every 3 weeks and then every 2 weeks. I am like if I do that I might as well have him as my OB at the same time otherwise I am going to be in so much more debt than I already am from the 4yrs of IVF.
Can anyone tell me their stories.
Did you have DR M as an immunology only while pregnant (not OB) if so how often did he require to see you?
2. Did you have DR M as a OB also if so. How did you find him as OB?
Also does anyone know how long a pregnancy is at risk with NK cell?? I thought once a placenta was in the picture you are safe... But honestly I am not well educated in the NKC
I also am worried about changing OB doctors at 13 weeks. It feels irresponsible to do so. But at the same time my blood results came back a few weeks ago showing 29% NK -and a MHTHR gene mutation. So I suppose I need the skills of DR M big time. But do I ditch my current OB??
So confused. Need to make these plan tomorrow at the latest.
Any advise is appreciated.
Thanks for letting me hijack your thread.
I live in qld so dont have advice on dr m as an ob
But my understanding, depending how high your killer cells are and what type the pregnancy can be at risk the whole pregnancy
@Majeen i thought you might know more regarding this?
Someone a while ago had him as her OB. From memory he was a bit slack with OB side, like in a contactable way. I think she wished she had chosen different OB.
I had phone appts with him every 4wks. Stopped intralipids at 18wks, Pred at 28wks but was still on Clexane when I gave birth at 35wks due to 2 copies of mthfr and high ANA.
Just push the appts out to 4wks if you can. He probably wants to see you every 2-3wks as you weren't diagnosed or started your treatment plan before you got your bfp.
Good luck with your pregnancy.
I am not sure I will be much help to be honest. I am 6 weeks pregnant on the second protocol by Dr M. It is costing me a fortune as I have him plus a seperate FS and an OB. I won't be having him as an OB but that is mainly due to the fact I am moving out of Sydney. Communication is not a strong point of Dr M and his receptionist so that would frustrate me.
No much is known about NK cells at this point but I lost my son at 34 weeks and it is probably related. I will be monitored my entire pregnancy in the hopes this doesn't happen again and doing intralipids every 4 weeks.
