    Hi Ladies,
    I need some reassurance please. I have my notes released from my specialist in NZ And Dr M office is arranging a Skype consultation. I just feel so nervous, especially as this type of treatment is so controversial in fertility field not being widely accepted. I fear I would be putting myself through a lot of pain discomfort, spending a lot of money with no real statistics for outcome. But on the flip side if I did get pregnant again my biggest fear in another 2nd Tri loss or worse a still birth.
    I'm really torn at the moment. I know a lot of you have been doing this for a while. Have any of you had success after recurrent miscarriages in particular any who had later losses.

    Yes, 5 losses, 2 of these were stillbirths. It's a huge commitment doing all the treatment but I wouldn't have my baby if I didn't do it. I'd rather go through the treatment (even if it didn't work) than suffer another heartbreaking loss. It's controversial I guess but there are plenty of women here who would testify that it works.

    Oh and by the way there's a highly regarded specialist I spoke to a couple of years ago who basically said this whole immune treatment thing doesn't work. He's offering intralipids to his patients now. A lot of docs just don't understand it, but dr m does.

    Everything BB77 said

    It appears controversial but i really dont think it is... (its becoming common in Australia in my fertility circles) but in 5 years it will be normal practice and it may actually bring success rates up as basic tests will be run before starting ivf.

    I am 26 weeks pregnant after 8 years of no diagnosis many chem pregnancies... ivf after ivf and no one would give me other suggestions or try anything else.

    Thanks guys. It's scary I suppose. Steroids and the idea of suppressing my immune system seems so extreme. I just wish I knew why my body changed after my son was born and can no longer recognise pregnancies as not harmful to me.
    I'm back on board though. I truely couldn't face another loss knowing I hadn't explored everything possible.

    I honestly think second time infertility must be so hard

    But it can also be what changes the body, more losses more nkc ect

    Your on the right path and Dr M will get you over the line, be positive

    Just remember steriods are used in many diseases a girl at work has been put on them for bells palsy and she is pregnant.

    So while again suppressing immune system... keeping baby alive and that's also what it essentially does for us

    Agreed! My immune system is already weak!

    So had my appointment with Dr M today, he is all happy with how everything is progessing. I change from dexamethasone to prednisone next Monday. Then Sat 16th I will do IVIG but it is very costly at 2250! But what ever it takes to keep this one on board. Continue with clexane, asprin, progesterone and vitamins. I asked about an obstrician and he said he would like to take me on as a patient so he can look after me as it can get confusing explaining it all to someone new. So I am set...just a bit of a trek to the hospital for delivery but he sets the date of birth so unless really early there should be no drama with the drive in.
    Now on the plus side he has a small portable ultrasound machine so got to look at bub again which was really poor quality so I had no idea what I was looking at but he was veryhappy and said everything is as it should be and HB 162bpm...so very exciting!

    I hope no one minds me jumping on this post. I saw a few of you have MTHFR. I have just received results that I have A1298c MTHFR homozygous. Don't know much about it. Can anyone shed some light please?
