Hi! Thanks a lot! 😊😊
Hi! Thanks a lot! 😊😊
Hi ang, yes that is the same as what i did in my last transfer plus i had baby asprin, and vitamins. I also did an extra intralipid so i had one a month before transfer and one about a week before transfer. Unfortunately i got a bfn. This time im adding LIT and will talk to Dr M monday to see what else i can do to increase my chances. My nkc was 27% and we found out dh and i have a partial dq match.
Girls, has anyone used neupogen? I'm about to start a FET cycle and Dr M said he would send me the prescription for neupogen, but he hasn't. If you've used it? When did you start it in your cycle and what was the dosage?
Those who have uad success with dr m and wss diagnosed with mthfr
Were you told you could go onto pregnancy vitamins like blackmore
I have been taking folate b6 and b12
Ans during my consult yesterday he said i can swap to blackmores or elevit
I know he is the expert just anxious about changing

Hi there. I'm not sure if this has been asked already as the thread is so long. I am about to do cycle number 6. I want to get tested for natural killer cells. I'm in Adelaide. Does anyone know how to go about it? Thanks X
Hi @Apples1234, if I were you I'd go straight to Dr M, I am remote and just filled in the info forms and then had a phone consult with him.then he sent through all the blood test request forms for me to have done and we went from there.
One of he other ladies might be able to tell you what happens if he wants to test your uterine nkc's as I didn't have that done (due to ashermans and the probability of it causing more scarring)
From there Dr M analysed the results and gave me a protocol that suited my particular issues, which has included trips to Sydney for intralipids, but I think I've read that some ladies get them done in WA, QLD & VIC through some other FS's with the help of Dr M.
Hope this helps xo
I am in Melbourne and have had no issue with consulting via phone and getting scripts and blood tests sent to me.
Apples are you hoping to do a fresh transfer? If not, you may be able to do a stim and have your consult with him before an fet.
Hi @Apples1234, for me I just did the Ivf protocol through my FS, and then started Dr M's protocol a couple of days after my transfer -which isn't usually what happens- I think he prefers you to start prior to the FET in ideal circumstances, but it all happened so quickly with me that my consult was week before transfer and BT results turned up right at transfer time, so just crossed my fingers and hoped that starting that little bit later would work...... Seems to have worked for me so far -fingers crossed!
I would try to get an appt asap, so that you have your protocol all sorted before going to FET.
My phone consult cost me $300 (nothing back from Medicare) the BT's didn't cost me anything, only the medications (clexane, progesterone pessaries @800mg/day (still on this much at 19wks) and prednisone). I head down to Sydney next weekend for my 5th and final (hopefully) intralipid infusion which cost $650 (nothing back from Medicare). Oh and I had to pay for my first hospital admittance (mine was $500 but may be different depending on your health fund and cover level) but all after that are covered under my health fund.
I know some of the other ladies are prescribed different treatments ie LIT, IVIG & neupogen, but I'm not sure what they cost sorry.
Good luck getting some answers, I reckon he's your best bet!
Cheers Ruby xo
