    I think the Bondi protocol is similar apart from having Intrapilids.

    Where are you going for donor transfer?

    I'm going back to Hawaii in June. I'm having a hysterscopy and endo scratch this time before I go. Have you asked your fs about having that procedure done too?

    I will have another look at the older threads again. I'm going to Greece for the donor transfer. Had hysteroscopy and scratch done.

    Bondi protocol isn't as aggressive as Dr M's. For example with Bondi you will probably be on around 10mg Pred whereas Dr M generally does 25mg.

    Hi ladies. I'm new to this thread and have been trying to catch up on the 1000 comments here. Ha!

    So I was hoping someone could answer a few q's for me. I've just made a face to face appt with dr M in June. I just wanted to have some idea of what to expect. Does he test for NK cells via blood test or biopsy? I'm not keen on having any more surgery/GA for day surgery etc.

    Short summary about me:
    I have really bad endo, 2 laps and 2 hysteroscopy. 2 fresh and 1 frozen embryo transfer from 2 ivf cycles which have failed. I have 4 frozen grade 1 embryos at Genea. I don't want to rush into another transfer without doing something different. I think my FS (who is also an endo specialist) believes that it's just a numbers game and the more we do it the greater our chances, without doing anything different. I don't want to waste my embryos and money hoping for the best. He's very skeptical about NKC but said if I really want to then it's up to me if I want to see dr m. He feels "throwing everything at it" will not make a difference in my case. He may be right, but there must be SOMETHING different if there are other women who have endo as bad as me and are still able to get pregnant.


    Is anyone else in a similar position to me? If so, what sort of protocol did dr m have you on?

    Thanks, and sorry if this sort of thing has been discussed a million times.

    Oh I know, this was just an extra thing I found that may help. I'll also do the auto immune protocol. Luckily my FS does it in house so I don't need dr M. Just thought I'd share cos I hadn't heard of the Lipiodol flush before

    I'm luckily with an FS who is also trained in immunology and giving me the whole NKC protocol for my next transfer. BUT you should look up this flush I'm doing. It's been really really helpful for endo. Do some research. Mention to your FS. I've done 4 transfers and I'm so excited to do this flush before the next one!! He said he has seen many cases with endo where they have this Lipiodol flush and couple end up conceiving naturally! ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1461857358.181860.jpg

    Mink welcome! Sorry to hear your story. I was with genea Kent st too... Dr Livingstone was my doc & his lack of belief in things including adenomyosis caused us to lose 4 blasts. Who is your FS? Ask him about zoladex which I took for adeno not sure if it can also help endo? Do you have adeno too, do you know for sure? MRI is best test for it. I highly recommend switching to alison gee, wish I had. I had one consult with & she blew me away, is so intelligent, thorough, open to immune protocols, looked after me by insisting I got a mammogram, her testing was pretty comprehensive. Had to cycle in Melbourne in the end otherwise would have used her. Don't let any FS stonewall you or tell you it's bad luck & a numbers game... Especially not when you have 4 grade ones on ice!!! Good luck, so hard but look after yourself not your FS, he'll survive... Get a second opinion from alison xxx

    Thanks for this Preciousheart, I wonder sometimes if the FS actually give their best shots at looking after us?? Sorry I don't take numbers games respond very well as this really effecting us and it has to be something else that they should not be so skeptical about other options. I am so hoping this one will work all the best to everyone still trying xxxx
