On another note...I noticed on one of your previous posts you mentioned your going to try an immune protocol for NK cells. Did you have a NK cell test? Biopsy? Did your FS order the investigations or have you had a diff specialist look into it?
I'm wondering if I've got an immunological thing going on. I'm 5 cycles in & still 'unexplained'. Have had a bunch on tests done & everything suggests we should be able to get pregnant naturally. Anyway, we've been at it for years & no luck. My FS says its just a numbers game & says the best thing for us to do is keep doing ET & wait for a sticky one. I mentioned immunological infertility to him & he kinda shrugged it off. I didn't ask anymore questions at the time but I haven't stopped thinking about it. Sorry for the long post! I suppose I'd just like to know if your FS initiated the immunological investigations & what symptoms/ tests did you have?
I'm wondering if my FS is just super conservative & maybe I should get a second opinion?
@Apples1234 - Can you consult your fs hin and ket him/her find out exactly what is going on if there is a chance that last embie is a blast you dont want to waste it. Good luck hun x
@Muchulu1 - I have transfered 7 embies in the past the last of which was a double transfer. I have in thst time experienced a chemical pregnancy and a blighted ovum. My current fs is Warren Deambrosis in Brisbane, he did a biopsy back in October which showed slightly elivated NK cells but he wasn't too concerned and gad me on prednisone and clexane anyway. Now I have a pgd tested frozen embie he is going to cover all bases and send me in for intralipids this cycle. Its my understanding that a lot of fs are very sceptical with immune issues and treatment is still quite new in ivf terms, it might be worth pushing for tests though so you know where you stand.
Well he pulls out all the stops @Evelynmoo I had got to the stage where I needed a new plan of action and he has thrown a lot at us. I say definitely go to his appointment you have probably waited long enough to see him, he will make you feel more positive and tell you exactly what he thinks. My first two cycles were done st a budget clinic and the protocol just wasn't right for my situation.
@anulka Whoop whoop. Awesome news!! 🍾🎉💃
@Apples1234 I'd certainly be checking with my FS. That's what they're there for and what you pay for. I hope it's all ok, I can't really give an opinion on this as its my first cycle.
@eveylynmoo I'm glad the procedure went smoothly and wasn't too bad for you. When will you get your official results? And do you know what the plan will be regarding the retained product? Fingers crossed its not an issue and you're good to go.
@Heyside welcome. I hope this cycle is a success for you! We've also been trying for 3 years, but this will be our first IVF cycle.
@Ashe87 yay to AF arriving and yay to being able to get started with your FET!
