Hope I just saw back in a post by flowers that she was on 3 x Dex per day. Not sure what that means, but you might want to contact her. Did she have similar blood work to you? At least if you get started maybe even on a lower dose over weekend then you can adjust up on Monday if need be, will be better than nothing

Hi girls, I have a quick question that I'm hoping u might be able to help me with. I have been prescribed Doxycycline antibiotics for a possible infection, even tho all my tests have come back clear they said I might have a low grade infection that is hard to be picked up in the lab.
I am TTC again after a miscarriage in April (first pregnancy - all natural). I am worried about taking doxycycline antibiotics as it is a class D in pregnancy. Apparently it can cause permanent staining of the baby's teeth and something to do with their bones. I noticed tho that some of u were prescribed doxycycline as part of treatment to take on day 1 of ur cycle. I was wondering if any of ur specialists mentioned anything about any slight risks taking this close to conception?
I am due to ovulate next week so if I took it it would be around the time of conception. I'm worried if I was to get pregnant that it could affect my baby?
Or do u think it would be better to wait and see if I get AF and if I do start taking it on day one of my next cycle? Fingers crossed I am pregnant tho and AF doesn't come if I did take it on the first day of AF, is it likely to affect my eggs or anything or still be in my system if I was to get pregnant that cycle?
Sorry for so many questions. My GP couldn't really answer them so I was wondering if ur FS had mentioned anything when prescribing u this? Im worried about taking anything at all now after my miscarriage
Thanks so much!

Hummingbird, have you been playing dr google??! Look, there are so many side effects that they have to declare as risks these days...it's a personal choice whether you keep reading all that stuff, I know cause I've been there done that too. But I basically wouldn't be doing IVF at all if I couldn't accept that risks are associated with just about any medical procedure or medication, the same sorts of risk percentages that involve driving my car, getting food poisoning, falling down stairs etc you can drive yourself crazy reading all that stuff.
I took amoxilin (sp?) which is similar to doxycycline in this cycle that I fell pregnant. I made the decision to trust that my very experienced doctors would not intentionally prescribe me something which would harm me or my baby.
I know it is hard not to worry and you will be a good mum because of it! But I hope you can find some peace about it. To be honest I didn't even look up the amoxilin when I was prescribed it, which is so unlike me as I used to be a dr google fanatic! But I came to realise for myself over time that it caused more worry than it did good, and these doctors we pay so much for have many years of real life experience that counts for a lot more than my research. But hey I totally get being your own best health advocate, and I certainly think that without all that motivation to research and be obsessive to seek answers that we would not all be doing this fantastic treatment to try to get the results we all desire, I just think you gotta pick your battles. And if you've worked so hard to find the answers to help you achieve your dreams, don't let your mind play tricks with you and let those doubts creep in when you are so close to success. Sometimes you just gotta go for it. Sorry if that sounded like a rant, I can blab on, and hope I don't offend you as we all have different journeys which make us more worried about different things, that's just a bit of how I got over looking into all that stuff and just tried to trust the process.
All the best 🙏✨✨

Ps - I took amoxilin in the middle of my most recent treatment cycle, from day before EPU through to day of transfer until packet ran out
And I am so sorry to hear of your miscarriage, I can't imagine what that does to adding to making you super worried and wanting to be super careful. For me I just had huge worry that my body could never fall pregnant as it was our 11th fertility cycle that we just got our bfp and every other one failed.
I can't see your signature as I'm on my phone to see what more you have endured. Big hugs xx This could be the one that sticks for you! And the doxy might help you never know! There's been a lot of positives here for ladies who have taken it. But as always it is your choice. xx

Hi hummingbird I was prescribed an antibiotic (doryx) not sure if the same - and this was taken from day of my egg retrieval. This was the 1st time I've been prescribed an antibiotic for a cycle (and 1st cycle I've got a BFP) and I've done 6 cycles, 7 transfers and approx 12 embryos transferred - quite a few fertility patients are prescribed antibiotics (low dosage ie: I tab/capsual per day) to prevent infections) good luck xo

Hi girls, bad news for me - big fat negative result.
Hummingbird, I'm on doxycycline. Took a course a couple of months ago when out was organises by my naturopath.I was out of cycle. Then when I saw Dr m he add it to my medications, and I've been taking one a say for a few weeks now. The naturopath laughed and it said he was being really cautious by prescribing it again. Still, doesn't mean much since i got a bfn todaay. Hope that helps. Flowers

I was on 3 x amoxilin per day, normal dosage.
Oh Flowers, I'm so sorry...take care of yourself and let us know what your next plan of attack is when you are up to it xxx🌷🌷🌷

Its ok to use doxy this urly in "pregnacy". But i would not use it after a positive test.
So sorry to hear about you negative results Flowers.
Will you try IVIg next? If you look at the High natural killer cell #1, close to the end you can see my drug protacoll.
My egg collcetion will probably be on monday... I had a endo scratch yesterday... Hopefully that will help with the implantation
Hope all you ladies are doing well

Flowers - I am so sorry to hear that this cycle wasn't successful. Big hugs to you. Take good care of yourself. Thank you so much for posting your Dex dose, I am sure that is the last thing you needed to think about today. Thinking of you xo

Hi Lissylou - yes it is amazing that I have never tried things like clexane after 18 bloody cycles. Unfortunately, once you have had a child naturally, most FS are of the opinion that you simply have had bad luck. I even had a scientist say to me once that it really is a numbers game and the fact you have had a baby without any ART gives you a much better chance of having another baby then most people we see. I still remember my first cycle and having a cocky FS say to me, I love getting patients like you, you make my stats look great. Because my endo wasn't discovered until we were trying for number 2, all 3 FS I saw believed that it was solely the endo that was causing problems, this combined with a good AMH (which I must say has just been retested and come back at 6, under 1/2 of what it was 2 years ago) even foolishly led us to believe that it would happen eventually. Funnily enough, I was onto the NK issue and wanting testing on our 3rd failed cycle, however FS at the time prescribed steroids, for 5 days only I might add at 15mg (I think) and told us that is what would be used to treat the NK issue if that's what we had. I have always been a poor responder and only got about 6 eggs each cycle so the only real changes I have had in treatment is increased stims up to 950 gonal F and then the last two cycles, taking steroids for months and months prior to cycling. Unfortunatley we have learnt the hard way that you do have to be your biggest health advocate and do your own research and push for what you want. Time was always a barrier to doing this as whilst cycling I was always so busy, working, being a mum, doing a degree, planning a wedding, being my disabled brothers advocate etc. so didn't spend the time I should of doing my own research. Anyway, hopefully we are on the right track now and I genuinely believe that if Wazza and Dr M can't get us to a live birth then nobody will be able to. We do very much appreciate that we are already more fortunate than many others in having our DS and if we don't get a BFP in say 3-4 cycles then at least we can have some closure in knowing why it hasn't worked and can then move on with our lives.
