    Hi wannabb,
    Sorry about your m/c so unfair. I take doxycycline 100mg 1x day I also use clexane and baby asprin. I used this protocol for my last cycle and got a bfp but had low hcg levels and m/c at 5 wks. Trying the same again with pregnyl added as luteal support.

    Hi Riversong- I am winging it a bit too. I have been using FS in Tas who never recommended it but did 1 cycle with very progressive FS in qld earlier this year who prescribed 10 mg from day 1. I have heard of people using from 5-25mg from 5 days only to 12-16 weeks if BFP. I think I will take 10- 12.5 mg and for at least 12 weeks if BFP. I have given up on my eggs and using donor eggs in south Africa when i got my first BFP. The donor was 25 so quality is excellent so want to cover the bases of being autoimmune or clotting problem with me that caused mc.

    Thanks wannabb, seems like we're in sort of the same boat. I am taking low dose aspirin in case of clotting issues - have been tested and haven't found any, but was taking aspirin when I got my BFP two years ago so doing it again this time, just in case it had something to do with it. Ditto re autoimmune stuff. Have you had the ANA test? Despite being quite allergic to about 1000 things my tests came back okay (much to my FS surprise) but they've ruled out everything else and its about all that's left so I figure the prednisolone has to be worth a try and FS and other Drs say it won't do any harm. Nothing ventured, nothing gained eh?

    Luckychance - yep used tasivf. Bill is great but not overly proactive but I do have old eggs so only so much can be done. He did agree with things if I suggested them but only really likes to go with things with scientific backup.

    Riversong- I have recently had ANA test but don't see her for results til end nov as on holidays. Will try to get results before then but will take stuff anyway. I have pretty bad hayfever and sinusitis as well as very occasional mild skin allergies. Not allergic to foods or drugs though. Would be handy to be allergic to potato chips.

    hey there, just finished reading the thread, and with me, transfer 18 & 19 where BFP but low hcg or chemical with prednisone for 5 days only, so they stuck with its help, then for transfer 20 i got a BFP with 25mg prednisone and continued it till week 12 where i weened off it, and button is doing perfectly, after 5 years, i totally think prednisone did it, before then i never got a BFP. i also took clexane & aspirin ( which I'm still on) and pregnyl for luteal support, and progesterone...we threw everything at this cycle and have succeeded
    i know what ill be doing for our second baby.
    i have PCOS and all bloods come back normal.


    hope that helps, and goodluck in ure journey

    Hi Katiana, firstly congratulaions on your bfp you must be thrilled after so many transfers to finally have your bfp. I am currently doing cycle number 29 and on only 10mg of prednisolone a day plus all the other medications you mentioned, if it doesn't work this time I will definitely be asking to up my dose next time around.
