hey ladies. if any of you are still on this thread i wanted to see if any of you had ideas. i feel like ive lost hope and that nothing is going to work. heres my story- think i have posted on your thread before i need help!
so my story is
3 chemical pregnancies in 7 ivf cycles, never been naturally pregnant. All 3 have been 4 wks 5 days so its not implanting properly.
i have been diagnosed with positive ANA and ACA antibodies thats it..
had the dna testing etc it seems our chromosomes are fine.
PGD maybe? not sure if this is necessary have that feeling in my belly thats its my body not the embryos.
as first chemilca the hcg doubled but progesterone bottomed out. the next two hcg didnt double but progesterone through the roof!
I have tried prednisolone, clexane and progesterone support.
I am now getting more immunolgy testing done waiting for results.
Im wanting any advice anyone can throw at me if you have had similar experiences.
Im reading about feldene for implantation.
definately going to do asprin the next cycle.
Ive read about benefits of melatonin.
I am happy with my clinic and he entertains me when i walk in with 10 pages of information i want to ask about, and is happy to do short and long cycles with me to mix it up. but im getting to the stage now that I am clutching at straws.. i dont know what else to ask about...
If my immunology tests come back with nothing I have no idea how to continue... ill never give up on having a child but just dont know what other questions to ask.
You ladies have helped me get through the last 7 cycles so Im hoping someone will have something to say to me that might trigger something in my brain.. after all you have to talk about it to get your answers
thankyou in advance xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Sammy Id love to be able to help, bit really have no experience with all that, I hope someone comes Ali. Soon that can help you xo
I wanted to ask, ladies that have been on low dose aspirin only, were you told to stop leading up to your due date? My OB said it's fine to just keep taking it, but I had a PPH last time (which was due to retained placenta, but surely the aspirin didn't help?) and I'd like to avoid that this time... Due date is in 2 days, do you think I should just stop taking it or not??

MrsBee - I was told by OB and haematologist to go off at 36 weeks.
Sammy - I'm so sorry. You've really been through it I just have a rather straightforward clotting disorder that hasn't (thankfully) caused me too much grief. All my infertility issues can be blamed on PCOS but I have always been suspicious that the MTHFR may have made things even worse. I know you said you're happy with your clinic but the only thing I could think to point you to is a clinic I found in California that has done loads of research and developed protocols for autoimmune and clotting related infertility issues. It's called the Beer Clinic and Dr Beer has written a book called 'Is my body baby friendly?' (plenty of info via Google). The Beer Clinic will work with other clinics internationally to do more extensive testing and develop/fine tune your protocols. There is also a Dr named Gammal Matthias who trained with Dr Beer and sees patients somewhere in Sydney's outer west (I see from your post code you are NSW). This was going to be my next step. I'd be more than happy to loan you the book if it is at all interesting to you. Sorry I can't be of more help, but thought I could at least pass on my research. Hugs to you.
Hope all you other lovely Clexane and Cartia ladies are doing well.
Heatherm - are you due soon? All the best. Let us know how it goes?

I'm injecting clexane daily, and where I inject my skin is getting rough and a little irritated. Is anyone else getting that? It's a large enough area(half my stomach) but it's the least painful place so I haven't changed spots.

Sammy: I also have Ana+ and lose my pregnancies early. The only thing that sounds to be missing is the aspirin. I needed it pre conception. By the time I got a positive test it was already too late to start it.
Mrs Bee: I also stopped my aspirin at 36 weeks
Chubear: congrats on your bfp! Hope things are going well. Didn't have that problem with the clexane. Might be worth mentioning it to your carer. Holding a cool face washer on the skin after injecting might help the irritation.

Hi Sammy I have ACA and had 1 m/c and a chemical pregnancy before having my daughter last year. The only meds I was on the entire pregnancy was low dose aspirin which I started on day 7 of my cycle to help with implantation. I continued the aspirin till 35 wks and had no problems with my pregnancy at all. Let me know if you have any questions and good luck
i hope everyone else is doing well

I haven't had been ana pos for any of my pregancies but am positive for anticardiolipin antibodies. I had 3 early miscarriage and with each I started the asprin and clexane at 4 weeks - I have been taking predinsolone normally as have lupus as well. This pregnancy (which seems to be going well) I decided to start taking the aspirin before I ovulated I don't know if that made the difference but it seems to have worked! Could just be coincidence. I conceived naturally so I am not sure about the metformin and the ivf stuff. Good luck.
