Did you have high NK cells? Check out the Reproductive Inmunology thread, a few of us there have had success after recurrent implantation failure. I got pregnant on my 6th IVF cycle with a combo of prednisolone, clexane and IVIG infusions.
Good Luck x

I'm so sorry to hear your still on the IVF journey. I'm going to second the NK protocol. After 4 unsuccessful transfers I changed to Repromed and going on a protocol of aspirin, antibiotics & steroids saw me get my BFP first go around.
I found getting a second opinion from a different clinic my best move. I was happy with my original FS but there beliefs are all so different that the second clinic was a lot more willing to try unproven protocols. For endo, had these cycles not worked, the new FS offered a procedure involving a laparoscopy in which they insert poppy seed extract (or something) that he believed was seeing some improvements in implantation failure.
I'll keep everything crossed for you xxxx

Here are a couple of websites I found interesting- hope they help.
Another thing I read is that for some people the recommended folate amount is insufficient and they instead recommended a MegaFolate (instead of 0.5 it's 5mg). http://www.medhelp.org/posts/MTHFR-M...l/show/1376338 This relates to MTHFR- which can be blood tested for. "Because of the mutation, absorption of Folic Acid is hindered and anyone with MTHFR will require 200% more Folic Acid then a typical person."
An endometrial scrape is often recommended in the cycle before a transfer as it increases your chance of implantation.
Have you ever had a chemical pregnancy? What do the embyros look like? have they all been day 3 or are they day 5? The reason I ask is the obvious reason is that the embyro is not viable to implant. Sometimes false hope is given with day 3 transfers- from day 0 to day 3 the embyro uses energy from the egg to survive. From day 3 to day 5 the embryo needs to start using it's own internal energy. If it's a sperm issue the embyro will stop during the day 3-5 stage.
Another common thing used to help implantation is Clexane.
Anyway, that's all I can think of except for old wives tales- eg eat pineapple!
