    Default High Natural Killer Cells #8

    Hi there. Quick question: you need to do your IVF cycle with IVF A or you can be treated with him and do your cycle/FET at your clinic?

    I'm with a low cost clinic after 3 failed rounds at IVF A. Second cycle at the new clinic I got a bfp but unfortunately was a miscarriage (still in the process, I started bleeding and cramping last night). Ladies in other thread recommended to check for immune issues. Is it hard to get an appt to see him?
    My FS said that because it was an early pregnancy loss (7weeks), I could have a FET (last emby) in May.

    Thank you in advance

    Hi Apples, Im keen to know more about why you decided to only do frozen embie transfers from now on....Im starting to think the same. I feel my body doesnt go well and doubt its a fertile environment for an embie to take. Im older though so have only had early blast and compacting morula (1 or 2 only) and have had fresh transfers resulting in BFN. Im thinking this time maybe freezing, even if its one and risking it not deforesting- not sure what to do though... Will prob have to wait and see.

    I recently had a long distance consult with Dr M like Ruby did. Sounds similar to Ruby - got emailed the pathology request and did all that then followed up phone consult $150 to tell me I did need immune protocol...so will be flying to Sydney for that (and I will also have this next cycle in Sydney). I have my mum there so that makes it easier. If you gets referral I believe you can get something back from medicare, will let you know when I find out. Was worth exploring for me. Time is ticking!

    YOU stay with your own clinic of choice and do cycle with Dr M. Im not going to tell my clinic as most don't believe in NK cells etc anyway.

    Hon, can I ask, were both your transfers cancelled because of OHSS, or other reasons? Were you a mild/moderate/severe case - what were your symptoms. I suffered last round but didnt think to cancel as wasn't too bad. But thinking this time I freeze.

    Hi ange1111

    I have never had to cancel for OHSS. I've just chosen to freeze as I believe your body is in too much trauma after stims cycle to go straight with an embro. It's also MUCH easier on my not only physically but also mentally. Everyone has different ways that have worked but my feeling is that my body is in a better place after a break after egg collection. So even if I only get one I'm freezing at the moment. I'm doing 3 stims in a row. Freezing all then I want to see Dr M and get my body right (plus do more tests with my FS). I've also opted to do the Png testing (for chromosomal abnormalities) so I know for sure the embryo is viable. (The 2ww is hard enough, but it will be good to know its def a chance of working).

    I do a lot of reading about IVF. Trying to establish whether or not my FS is doing all he can. I had a hysteroscopy with my last egg collection and he saw my lining was quite white in colour which means not enough blood flow in the lining. Glad I did that cos now I will take Viagra (I know!) to stimulate blood flow to my lining. That is when I have a transfer.

    Any questions just ask! Happy to help on this tough journey xx

    What would be good is to have a list of all the tests you can do to check for fertility issues. I feel like you're never told completely what could be wrong and you're more drip fed one idea per cycle that fails. Would be good to have that list earlier and get all the test done before like I've done spending $20,000 on the first 4 cycles only to find my lining hasn't got enough blood 😳

    Hi Apples, thanks so much for the info. I am totally feeling the same way as you but don't always have the option to freeze due to emby quality on Day 5, but its so great to hear your view as I've been in two minds whether to aim for freeze (and PDG testing prior) - if its a possibility, or transfer fresh...thank you!

    So you're doing three in a row, as in, not having a month of in between? Go girl! I think the worst part for me was the 2ww as well so I totally understand where you are at, and we are not getting any younger! Bloody expensive all of this isn't it! I was just thinking before, it is just money and I want this bad, so will aim to save/borrow etc and keep going for a while yet!

    Hey ladies just wondering if anyone had side effects from the supplements and prescriptions for egg improvement before IVF cycle.
    Melatonin
    DHEA (both prescriptions)

    Co-Q10
    Vitamin E
    Omega3 fish oil.

    I know I can google the side effects but usually they they tell you your going to lose your hair and die so I would much prefer to ask you lovely ladies if you have had them and how you went xx
    Hope you are all well X

    Apples1234, I’m happy to send you a list that I’ve compiled over the years. This helped me when I went to see my GP for the request slips, and had them done ahead of time knowing majority (if not all) are the tests Dr M will request (this way he'll have them before my initial appointment with him instead of waiting), based off my many years of forum reading/reading into NKC. A few of them cost money i.e. AMH, MTHFR, etc but in my view well worth it and MUCH less than $20K!

    Not guaranteed he won't request others, or I've missed some, but it's a fairly comprehensive list.

    I'd love to know all the tests you've compiled over the years. I think Apples is referring to other things such as endo/adeno etc... Apples that list would be awesome too!!
