    Hi ladies

    I have posted on this and the Greek thread back in May-July, but had to leave (long story) and have returned with a new username.

    Hello to @gorgeousgeorge who has been corresponding with me in private and being her truly gorgeous self. I hope you're ok Hun.
    Also big congrats @Rhino and I hope you get looked after properly soon, there are some great Drs in Perth who are so supportive so I hope you find one soon. Thanks also for your private support during my cycle. Big hugs.

    I have read some of the threads on and off and I'm very sorry for all the recent sad news. It's so depressing and my heart goes out to all of you. @Blossom74 so sorry to read your news. Hope you catch a break soon

    So a bit of history and apologies for the long post!

    I'm single and have had 5 stim cycles, 2 FETs with OE and 1 DE cycle x 2 perfect blasts. BFNs on OE cycles including my TET transfer. Then an early miscarriage on my DE cycle last month. So in total I had 16 embryos transferred in the past 2 years. Day 3,4 and 5 with a combination of grading from average to excellent with a couple of poor for good measure. I'm 42 so the first 14 I took as being old eggs but now with a DE failure I thought there may be something else going on, or maybe it's just my typical sh*tty luck

    So at @Flower78 I met with Dr S to investigate if I have immune issues etc. well he is really thorough and I'm glad I found him. I first saw him 2.5 weeks ago and everything has moved so quick. I had about 9 vials of blood taken for all the immune testing and he done a hysteroscopy, and endo biopsy today and found I had a uterine septum. Which basically is tissue that can seperate the uterus in two at worst or partially. Not sure how bad mine was as Dr S told me in recovery and I was a bit out of it. This can cause miscarriage (which I had one naturally years ago and then the early miscarriage last month) and also implantation issues, where the embryo tries to implant in/near that area as it has poor supply of blood flow etc . It's congenital so I was born with it. So he removed it whilst doing the hysto. I'll get all my results in 2 weeks and an explanation of the findings today.

    I'm shocked as I had a hysto/lap just over 2 years ago as had irregular bleeding (ended up being down to severe stress), but I don't remember this being mentioned. As the procedure wasn't fertility related maybe he decided it was irrelevant?? They found minor endo and adhesions which were removed. So I'm cross about that and now think I may have had viable OE embryos wasted. But I have made my peace with DE and the baby I get is the baby I'm meant to have.

    So I'm very thankful I met Dr Saba. I say have the works with him! He is also a no gap Dr as is the anaesthetist he uses. So the only OoP cost is $150 for some clinician fee. The hospital is lovely, I had a private room and the nurses were great.

    Also he told me he believes whether women 40 or over have immune issues or not, he recommends intralipids. He's an Ob/gyn and not a fertility specialist but he specialises in immune issues and failed ivf/recurrent miscarriage. He consults with a Dr in the US who is an FS/immune specialist, but I didn't ask who.

    Anyway sorry for the long post. Good luck to all xx

    - @Monty73 Hello Luv and Welcome to the thread!!!

    Thank-you for your very informative post about your history and Dr Saba...I'm so sorry to hear of both your past OE and DE Cycles ending in BFFN's for you Luv How frucking devastating!!!

    Am even sorrier to hear of the uterine septum going diagnosed/unmentioned until now and I can only imagine just how pi$$ed off you were/are that this issue was potentially missed or not dealt with in the past!!! As you say, thankfully, it's been removed/fixed now, so it's onwards and upwards for you now Luv!!!

    and prayers being sent for your next Cycle/transfer getting you over the line to a BFFP and take home baby!!!

    Do you have any more frosties left or do you have to do a fresh Cycle again???

    Thanks for the info on Dr S @Monty73. Sounds like you have had a tough time of it, I'm glad he's found the septum and fixed that now. Good luck next cycle, when are you planning to start again? Seeing him has certainly given me some hope back that it could work next time.

    @Monty73 welcome (or welcome back!) - what a great post packed with useful information.
    Im sorry to hear of your recent loss. So very sad and difficult.
    I'm also sorry to hear you've only just found out about yr uterine septum, that's just unforgivable if it's been missed and may be the cause of your problems. So bloody frustrating.
    Hopefully this discovery means you can move forward and progress with success and a BFP. Xxx

    @Phia and @Heyside thinking of you both as well.
    I know it's a new week but it doesn't make it all just go away.
    Hope you are both finding some things to keep you busy and smile about.
