Hi ladies. Long time follower first time poster. Have had initial phone consult with Dr M and was supposed to have follow up to get blood results Thursday just gone but he didn't call?? Was super disappointed as left work early to take the call and it never came....tried Friday arvo and couldn't get through either. Will follow up Monday I suppose. I've had about 6 transfers and from that had one chem preg and the rest all BFN. Always great embryos, lining, everything great and no issues with hubby either. Biopsy finally showed up an elevated level of uterine natural killer cells but my clinic in Adelaide only ever treated me with 15mg of prednisone. Am hopeful that my Dr M results also shows high levels of NKC and he can treat them. Getting sick of hearing that everything is ok when it's clearly not....5+ years and loads of money and heartache later. Anyone else from Adelaide in here??
Welcome Teej17, I'm in Adelaide. Most FSs will only prescribe max 15mg (if they believe in it at all). This is why you keep your immune treatment seperate from your IVF treatment. Dr M is the man for immune, let your FS worry about your IVF.
Not like G not to call you if Dr M was running behind. She would call me in the morning of the appointment day to let me know roughly when he would be calling.
Sounds like you may have found the problem for not conceiving. Although not good to have issues its great to have answers and start a treatment plan. Give G a call first thing on Monday...Goodluck.
Thanks for the welcome Miss Sagi....it almost feels like a celebrity has replied to me as I've read along for so long and seen your name and posts so many times haha. I felt the same way when I spoke to G on the phone the first time after reading about her in here
So would you recommend not telling my IVF doc about the doctor M treatment? Or should I?

I don't really post anymore as I've had my "success", so yes, you must have been reading for a long time 😃
You can tell them but its really nothing to do with them. I was very open with my FS and he was fine. He didn't need to do anything.
You shouldn't have to hide the fact you have a treatment plan parallel to your IVF plan, from a specialist in reproductive immunology, as this is totally different to IVF.
Yes a huge congrats on your twins...super super happy for you. Thanks again for your reply...will wait for my results and treatment plan I suppose and go forward from there. Night!
